Reviews about Pay & Benefits for Transportation Officer in TSA (Transportation Security Administration)

Good benefits but low pay and labor intensive.

It's a decent job at its core, there are good benefits when it comes to health insurance and leave accumulated over time but its a labor intensive job and lots of people you have to deal with everyday. It's good to build connections to law enforcement and government employers for future opportunities. It's can be a career but I wouldn't recommend it. So many other better jobs out there than TSA.


Lots of opportunities for future employment in goverment along with good health insurance.


Short breaks, low income, overworked. You need to know this is a labor intensive job.

Good place to start for government

My experience was ok. Leadership was poor but I loved the people I worked with. The compensation was extremely poor especially for an agency that is working with the safety of others


Good people


Bad pay and bad leadership
