The hush is that the Transportation Security Administration does not allow you to talk about the hiring process. Much like the FBI's hiring process is classified. Don't worry it's not that hard.

I worked at TSA for almost a year and a half and although it has it's up's and downs it's an agency that is always changing and getting better with age, much like wine. I will say this, when going for your interview wear professional business attire.

You will go through a background process that will lead to a security clearance so expect it to take a little bit before hearing anything. I can't say what the exact tests are but you'll go through a medical, eye and background to name afew. No don't worry about the Polygraph, there's none of that.

I wish you all the best. If I had any advice to give about my year and a half there I would say this. "Don't get involved" You won't understand it now but if you stay longer this six months you will.

Good Luck to all

I have had my application with the TSA for over a year and I haven't heard a word from them. I have experience in Law Enforcement having worked as a NARC officer for the SPTBG Sheriff's Dept and over 20 years in a Science Laboratory. What does it take to get a job from the Homeland Security Dept at the Gvl-Sptbg International Airport?

Can anyone advise me on where/how to apply for a TSO position with TSA in Denver?

I am late to this discussion board stuff. It has been 6 weeks already and I just got my medical scheduled. To answer a question in here about getting applied for TSA, www.usajobs.gov, there has to be a position opened to apply for and after this, the waiting game like everyone goes thru. My question is, is it better to apply for a Part time position to get your foot in the door with TSA, or wait for the Full time position and apply for it? Any help?

Apply for the part-time position. There are comparatively few full-time TSO positions available.
