HPN in Port Chester, New York said: I sent my e86 over 10 days ago and I'm putting in for JFK. Should I expect about a 4 month wait also? I thought the size of airport had something to do with it, but I guess it depends on other factors besides that. I speak several languages although it's not required. Females get in faster I heard.

Maybe it depends on the airport. I heard that too, girls get in faster. If your a girl your one step ahead of us then ;)

My account locked twice. ;(

HPN in Port Chester, New York said: Hey Upward Bound,
What step are you at? By reading these posts, I heard some people have waited 14 months and others about 3 months. Any ideas on what the determining factors are?

Hi HPN--submitted the e-86 two weeks ago and waiting. I was told it would take apprx 30 days and that the next training class will be in Sept. 2010. I do know that clearing the e-86 background check is a major determining factor. I'm going to
stay busy doing temporary job assignments--since I'm currently unemployed.

TSA PER SEC send me a letter via FedEx overnight. Thank for your interest .....etc

Based on my consumer report TSA took adverse action.

In that report it shows 16k bad debt.
I have a same name as someone else. Trans Union idiots placed someone else NAME AND SOCIAL SECURITY in my report. I can see the name and social security in my consumer report that belongs to someone else. Trans Union have no record of my credit report on my name and social security number and because they could not find my report they placed someone else SS and the name.

Therefore, TSA took adverse action. :(

I have to write a letter to explain them entire consumer report is not mine. I have a credit card but I never used it.

Anyone had the same problem ?

I've passed my cbt and credit check but then it kind of pauses. I called the helpdesk number and asked if they knew a time-frame of when I would get a call back to take the airport assesment but the lady said that there was no time-frame. i'm 18 and have nothing in my background . I was just wondering how long it usually takes for them to call to schedule an airport assesment? Thanks

HPN in Port Chester, New York said: You are entitled to a free credit report. I suggest you get one ASAP and fax it to the help desk. I know that everyone nowadays has debt, but I do know that TSA won't consider you if there is debt over $6700 or $7000 that HAS NEVER BEEN PAID. You can have 50K in debt but if you're still paying it, you're good.

Yeah I checked my credit report. Only one of the three bureau has my information. And my cards are in good standing.Never took loan. I wrote a letter to Per Sec for reconsideration.

I think I'll call the help desk and find out.

You're lucky that you're keeping busy with temp assignments. The temp agencies around here don't have any work!

SFO. I got an email from Covenant Aviation Securtiy (the contractor for TSA) on Friday stating that my E-86 was still being processed.. and they asked if I was still interested in the TSO position. The Dashboard help desk said they won't show my info if the airport that I'm applying to is using a contractor.

I just passed my assessment and am trying to slow DOWN the process because I live too far from Dulles and am waiting for my house to sell. Does anyone know if I make it to the pool if I can just sit there for a while and skip a couple of classes?

Also, is it possible to work the MINIMUM? Would I have any control over that? I have another job and am only doing this for the benefits so I only want the 16 hours. Also, will they allow me to work just TWO 8-hour days?? It is too far for me to drive down there four or five days a week.

they will email you, in like two-three weeks if you passed the background check, but from there on, it is still a long wait, such as waiting for a class to be scheduled to train new screeners, the earlier you reply to them about accepting the contingent job offer, the earlier you can be put in a class, they probably will email you, also, since the economy is so beautiful, expect them to offer you a part time position with full time possibilies later on, basically they want to delay your benefits, however, money wise, you can do split shifts, kind of like working at a buffet, work 4 hours in the morning, have a 3 hour break, and work another 4 hour, so yoru spending all day at the airport, but it is what it is.....i hate using that term .....so u can still get your full time hours but classified under part time.....

if u have a warrant, it may raise questions pertaining to the background investigation, what u need to do is answer honestly if there is such a question, i dont remember....and if they call and ask u about it, then u have the chance to explain to them, they want to try to hire people, not disqualify them because of a little here and there, after all noone is an angel.....but just be truthful

they will not accomodate you because of your personal issues, people that are about to graduate college wont get their schedule changed!! those people have to talk to their professors and skip school and reschedule their final exams to hold on to this job...you are potentially about to work for DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY!!!...if you cant handle what they ask of you, you can quit later on after you get your feet in the door because it is ATWILL EMPLOYMENT
so you need to figure out whats more important, your driving distance, your other job,

it depends on the company that is assigned to the task, usually a urine test involves a proctor watching you pee and making sure your not scooping up toilet water as urine....just make sure you drink water before the test, relax, and turn on the sink water so that the flow of the water sound helps you alleviate faster and get the thing done faster....

Let me start off by saying i'm starting to see a pattern here pertaining to these TSO positions, but let me ask my question.

I've applied for every TSO position that has opened up in NYC dating back to mid last year. What seems to be happening is two to three months would go by then I get a call or email saying that they haven't received my 2811 and 2812 forms. So I send the forms in again and call them to make sure they've received it, they say they have it and they are in the process of reviewing it. A month would go by and I'll get another call saying that they don't have it please send it in again. To date I've sent approximately 25 2811 and 2812 forms. Does anyone know what is going on over there?

I just received an LOI (Letter of Interrogatory) from TSA. They want proof of my payment arrangement with a creditor. I will fax the agreement letter tomorrow. Looks like the other items passed the background check.

Call the TSA Helpdesk and ask for TIER 2 -- DO NOT WAIT!!!Also check your dashboard to see your status. With the volume of candidates TSA has the best answer is to contact them. I can't remember the # off the top of my head its 877-xxx-7990 and emails you recieved should have that phone number the TSA site most likely does as well/.

Are you interested in anything else TSA has available? If you have 3 yrs of general work experience or a bachelors degree w/transcripts submitted or an associates and 1 yr work exp you qualify for this position. The next posting is in the October time frame. Set up a search agent in USA Jobs, its your best source unless you want a headquarters position then check the job boards out there as well. The CBT test is extremely hard so don't feel too badly and there are always other positions out there. Apply to anything even if you feel you are not qualified enough. Most likely you are wrong. And ALWAYS rate yourself 4's or 5's are better if you can, if you rate too low or be modest you will not meet the cut off score and you will not proceed further. The second most important thing is to make sure all documents are sub,mitted thats another way you can be disqualified. Good Luck! never underestimate your skills aND KNOWLEDGE.

Call the HRACCESS HELPDESK now. The number should be on any email sent to you. Ask for Tier 2, do not wait to see if they call, you call them to escalate the process. Trust me, I know.

If you are referring to the CBT I thought those results were good for 2 years. Atleast that's what the help desk told me earlier this year because I was scared my test scores wouldn't be good anymore either.
