I have worked at the Suitland Mega Center for over six years and I have moved up the ranks, I had started out as a call taker/ dispatcher and then moved over to a training coordinator, after that I became the dispatch supervisor. After that I become an alarm Tech. I come in with my head down working to please the Lord and I was rewarded for my efforts.

Do not work for Homeland security it is a terrible job with no pay raises. They promote young kids (19-23 yrs of age ) instead of employees that have put in time to learn protocol for the job. I would not recommend my enemy to work there. And they won't admit it but color of skin has a lot to do with promotions

Screen passenger and baggage for flight. It’s difficult dealing with passengers that are angry that they have to go through the screening process. Also rewarding to turn all there anxieties into a smile once the screening is complete. And they realize they got all worked up over nothing

Caseworker/Clerk/Customer Representative (Former Employee) – Carson City, NV – March 26, 2018
Long hours, supervisors are not trained on your job duties, only to make sure you are on time and take your breaks and lunches. They get paid 8 more dollars an hour just to do that. your tax dollars are being wasted.
