Work & Life Balance


Transportation Security Officer in Sterling, VA
on June 20, 2019
Okay place to work
Not a bad job, scheduling can be a hassle because they have a schedule to fit you into, not you fitting them into your schedule. Pay is good for the area.
Section Chief/ officer in Los Angeles County, CA

This is an a job versus a career work for 20 year, it’s the government so politics play into job a great deal. Got to play the game and be honest, lots of shady people will come your way
TSA Officer in New York, NY

Your outcome will totally be up to you and what you make of it. If you stay focused on your objective and not listen to the Naysayers you will make the most of this opportunity whether you choose to stay with TSA and move up into Leadership or a Supervisory Capacity or Transfer to another Government Agency

Aunque es una posición temporera lo intentaría de nuevo. Buena comunicación y excelente cultura de trabajo
Airport Security Agent in Billings, MT
on May 29, 2021
Advancements are few, even with lifetime skills. Work requires every holiday and weekend until seniority allows for a better bid. Time in service will yield a better shift and pay. Start times and end times were unconventional as they are based on flights. Interesting work with some amazing people. I’d recommend this location. Very stressful atmosphere as there is a great deal at stake so be prepared for a serious job with serious people.
