Equal Employment Opportunity
The Vancouver Housing Authority is an equal employment opportunity employer and all employment decisions are made without regard to race, gender, age, national origin, religion, political affiliation, marital status, or mental or physical disability. The VHA actively seeks applications from qualified women, minority, and/or disabled candidates as well as from candidates of other protected classes.
Please advise a member of the Human Resources Staff if you will need any special accommodations due to disability or impairment in order to participate in the recruitment process or to perform the work once hired. Requests should be made by letter, or other appropriate format, and should be submitted to the Human Resources Department as soon as possible.
VHA Benefits Package
Employees and eligible family members may choose from two medical plans — both traditional and HMO-type plans. Generally, all medical/vision and dental plans are fully paid by the VHA, but occasionally some plans require employee contribution. There are two dental plans available.
Paid time off and holidays
PTO (Paid Time Off) is earned at 5.67 hours per pay period for a total of 136 hours or 17 days per year. The rate of increase is one additional hour per pay period for each 5 years of service. The VHA has ten paid holidays throughout the year.
The VHA provides a life insurance policy to employees at no cost. The employee may purchase additional life insurance for themselves, spouse and/or children.
The VHA provides a long-term disability plan to employees at no cost. This policy provides partial income protection for employees in the event of an injury or illness that prohibits the employee from returning to work.
Retirement system and deferred compensation plan
Employees participate in the Washington State Public Employees Retirement Plan. The Department of Retirement Systems sets the contribution rates. In addition, employees can participate in a deferred compensation plan and can contribute 25% of their pre-tax annual salary up to a maximum of $15,500.
Direct deposit and Credit Union membership
Employees can have their paychecks directly deposited into any financial institution of their choice, and may join Columbia Credit Union.
