quality job
Baggage Screener (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJune 28, 2018
great experience, fast paced working environment I Ould totally recommend this job. the only downfall is that you do get people ho don't understand the importance of security. but as long as you know your doing the right thing thats pretty much all that matters. the managers and people are a great team environment.

it can be VERY hectic

A fast paced environment
Transportation Security Officer (Current Employee) –  San Francisco airportMarch 11, 2018
A typical day can be easy if there isn't a zoo running through the checkpoint, but usually its a lot of standing and walking around depending on the position you are on at the time. Holiday's and summer time is most stressful times as there are a lot of people trying to rush and get on a plane, and are mad at you because they feel we are just wasting their time and making them late to a flight. Nice to meet all kinds of people at the airport from all parts of the world also, there are some nice and understanding people that know why we do our jobs and accept it. I learned a lot from covenant about security and how to use an x-ray machine and also techniques on how we can be better aware of threats around us. management is good but can improve on certain things, because they do not really work at the checkpoint, they can think on how to improve things to make it better if they had a better understanding. workplace culture can be fun if you are working with people that you get along with, but can be stressful on busy days when there are a lot of agitated passengers that are trying to catch their flight, which stresses a lot of the employees. Hardest part of the job is just putting up with passengers that have a really bad attitude, when they yell,scream, or curse at you, and you have to keep your calm, but at least we have supervisors at the checkpoint that diffuse the situation. The most enjoyable part of the job is the friendly employees that can make it a little easier on a stressful day.
Pros
friendly employees and pay
Cons
stressful environment, schedule flexibility, and benefits.

Professional Job Title with Little-to-No Skill Involved
Security Screener (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAFebruary 13, 2018
I go to work to screen the general public and allow them to safely enter the secured areas of the airport. While working here, I gained many valuable skills. However, the job environment is very demanding at times due to low staffing (all the time) and unprofessional employees. The culture of the workplace is similar to that of a high school. I enjoy being able to ensure safety to passengers and employees alike. The hardest part of the job is to attain seniority, as many employees have been there for years. Overall, I appreciate the opportunity to work for this company due to the competitive wages and great benefits that they offer.
Cons
No free parking

Not what they promised
Transportation Security Screener (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJanuary 2, 2018
This was "an experience" something out of a reeeeeally bad dream.
No typical schedule and when and if you do get one it will change every 3-6 months and in order to get anything remotely human you need to be prepared to awaken in the wee hours of the morning so you can "Bid" for a slot against a million others all hoping to get some normal hours for a change. Felt a bit like blade runner, not a good feeling at all, no pride in your work, no respect by management, co-workers, or passengers.
Pros
stale lunch brought in for Xmas w/overcooked meat and veggies
Cons
you name it, water my kingdom for more water

Niche organization, but I was treated fairly and enjoyed working for them.
Site Manager (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLDecember 18, 2017
Contract security organization specializing in aviation security. Work can be long and redundant, but upper level management and corporate structure made it worthwhile. Hardest part of the job is the management of a high turnover workforce.
Pros
Good benefit package and good management.
Cons
Contract work

Demoralizing
TRANSPORTATION SECURITY OFFICER (Former Employee) –  SFODecember 12, 2017
Over-worked. Under-appreciated. Horrible horrible hours. Horrible horrible schedules. You have rotten choices of work schedules you have to bid for. Once you are awarded your horrible schedule you are stuck with it for 6 months.
Pros
Makes you appreciate your days off more than any other job could
Cons
Demoralizing, horrible hours, management has unrealistic expectations

Run while you still can
Airport Security Screener (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 3, 2017
This job is seriously not meant for everyone. I thought it was going to be a walk in the park but no. This company is extremely strict, and its like one mistake and you're fired. I personally don't like that, and I'm desperately looking for another job right now. Airport parking is not free, you pay 250 bucks a month for a parking spot, and also taxes remove a large chunk out of your pay and you're left with practically nothing.

Run while you still can, that's all I'm going to say.
Pros
Great cheap benefits
Cons
horrible hours, lazy "teammates", favoritism

Disposable asset
Transportation Security Officer (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 10, 2017
Everybody out for themselves. No decent managment. No job security. Have to kiss behind to get anywhere. Always threatning with being fired. Took about 8 years to get a weekend off then the new hires make about a buck something less than those who have been there 10 plus years. So horrible long term job.
