IT Project Manager in Ashburn, VA

I worked for TSA for almost 5 years and 6 years as a contractor and loved every minute of it. I've made a lot of friend and lost some friends as well. I will forever be grateful for all the memories.

Extremely high levels of stress inflicted by management. You’re likely to be fired or quit within the first 2 years. Extremely high turnover rates. Extremely low morale. I promise you will be wasting your time if you even apply.

watch your ever move when working here, leads and supervisors are not on your side and will pinpoint the tiniest things to get you fired basically. also the work environment is very cliquish.

Inflexible hours. Super high turn over due to management. Alot of depression and suffocation comes with this job. If you want to work somewhere with too many Chiefs and not enough Indians this is the place for you.
Transportation Security Officer in Phoenix, AZ
on September 11, 2021
It's good for someone trying to get their foot in the federal door. It's also good for someone who wants full benefits for working part time. The pay starts off okay but is not rewarding in the long run. It's a simple job, but the public doesn't like you. There are chances to move up, but it's more of a stepping stone to other agencies. If you like your immediate coworkers, then the daily work will be bearable. Management varies widely from airport to airport.
