The best benefit at #TSA was definitely...

I was able to travel and provide security for 2 inaugurations, the Pope and Obama's farewell speech in Chicago.

The reason I stayed was that the job itself was important. I met a lot of great friends. The job itself is made for people who believe in the purpose! Otherwise it is a very challenging job. You get tested every year to make sure you are keeping up with standards. If you fail any part of test, you get three chances your out! Even if your a supervisor that has fifteen years?

Back in 2002, I had been laid off for over a year. I needed something to get my career restarted. I saw a spot on the news about TSA doing mass hirings for airports in my area. I went for it and got hired. It got me going again.

TSA is usually hiring. It doesn't pay a whole lot, but it's a solid job with Homeland Security and federal government benefits. Look for TSA at job fairs, or just hit their Web site.

The application process involves a background check, which requires some annoyingly long paperwork and researching things long past. That paperwork is a matter of endurance and will take several rounds of sitting down with it over a couple of weeks to find all those little details, like supervisor's phone number from 12 years ago.

Airports usually have public transportation. My car had been totalled, but I could still get to work at the airport. Airport security teams operate on shift work, so they don't have the usual 8 to 5 schedule, and most people don't have Saturday / Sunday off. I worked 12:30 PM - 9:00 PM, and my "weekend" was Tuesday / Wednesday when I started, then later on I got Sunday / Monday. Some airports operate 24 hours.

There are eligibility requirements. If you can talk to a recruiter, he/she will tell you what the hiring is like right now for your area and if they have any flexibility on those requirements. I worked with a wide variety of people who had different backgrounds and situations.

HTH!

While working at #TSA I was proud of

Love the job. But the management in Islip airport made the job unbearable. The new pass criteria doesn't reflect your test grade or proformance. Based on wheather your supervisor evaluates you at. Earn extra points for ratting on a co-worker. Team work in non existent in Islip. Extreme favoritism to certain screeners. Best thing I ever did was to get out of there

As a company man and patriot... we as a nation must learn to accept change and chaos. It is at that time we will be a more aware, supportive, focused, and productive organization and serve the good public of which must support those that defend them.

I have worked for TSA for 10 years... The TSA encourages, trains, and inspires innovative thinking. While employed you will appreciate the dual ownership in accountability. You will find that Leadership supports the boots on the ground men and women of all walks of/in life.

Advanced Learning is funded and encouraged. Through Areas of critical thinking you are supported, a necessary skill set used to determine the best adaptive application of screening methods. Being able to assert a professional recommendation based off gut instincts for threat detection.

Their efforts to deter, detect and defend are hourly sacrifices. Odds are measured at needle in the hay stack evolving threats, and with limited means of technological readiness in people, process- acquisitions, testing, validation, and certifying its field readiness. Capabilities that must prove to be both effective and daployable via vendor in a competitive market regulated by certain standards in detection under the constraints of a dwindling budget.

Only by the combined support of intel community, and various internal, and external layers that filter out the bad and factor in the trusted community when applying speed to process improvement.

Support needs support to sustain... together as a village we all ensure the fluid movement of our modes of transportation safety.

Join! They succeed everyday!

I want to share excellent information I received about job opportunities with the Transportation Security Administration,TSA at a job fair yesterday. I thought my age would be looked at as a negative employment factor with the agency but I found out they actually do allot of recruiting with senior applicants. The application process can be lengthy because of the background check and investigation but the pay, benefits, and career progression for experienced candidates are unlimited. This might be a 2nd career worth looking into, https://tsajobs.tsa.dhs.gov or call (877) 872-7990.
