TSA is interesting

Working for the TSA can be trying and stressful. The benefits, vacation time and personal days are good. Management gets butthurt when unscheduled days off.

Very stressful
Transportation Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FL 32827January 15, 2019
Is a job that requires 100% attention to detail.
You have to learn how to ignore negatives comments and stay focus on your duties.
Don't get distracted every life that gets on those plains are counting on you.

SECURITY TRAINING INSTRUCTOR-EXPERT (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJanuary 15, 2019
Fast paced environment. Good stepping stone to advance in other federal agencies. The promotion process can be difficult to grasp as it's not as simple as a good interview.

Great way to get into Federal Service
Program Specialist (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VA 20598January 14, 2019
Great for field work and those who like to stay mobile in terms of transferring to different domestic locations. Office positions are highly competitive and difficult to get a raise once you are in an office position.
Pros
Flexible schedule, field office transfers are easy
Cons
Office jobs are highly competitive and salaries increases are minimal

Its the government
Transportation Security Officer (Former Employee) –  Morrisville, NC 27560January 14, 2019
Pay was good, benefits good. But they try to run the airports like the military and they are not hiring military grade people. also they make up rules as they go to cover themselves. Its not a good work environment, and if anyone tells you otherwise, theyre lying to you.
Pros
pay, benefit

Decent pay, but stressful
Transportation Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Missoula, MTJanuary 13, 2019
A decent paying job for my area. There is some room for advancement. The environment can be stressful and passengers can be rude. There is a lot of testing that must be passed to keep your job. There are very strict rules and procedures that must always be followed.
Pros
Decent pay and benefits
Cons
Subjected to rude passengers and constant testing

Decent
Transportation Security Officer (Current Employee) –  Coppell, TXJanuary 13, 2019
Decent place to work. Benefits are a plus, management is dependent on which terminal you work at. Work is not hard at all as long as you do not let the passengers get under your skin.

experience is best teacher.
Lead tso officer 10 yrs. (Former Employee) –  Greer, SCJanuary 12, 2019
A good place, higher officials in Washington need to revamp leadership and reinstatement at all airports in the united states. Their are former employees with experience can help out right now by asking former employees to come back and be compensated with a full time or part time job. experience is the best teacher and this will help with the morale. Could also be a step toward workers coming to work. Another ideal tsa could help with the wall situation. Mr. Richard Nelson at Gsp need to rehired workers from 2002-2011. this is the more experience crew from ground zero. The status of tsa will rocket because of the experience brought back abroad.
Pros
sterness
Cons
lack true tsa workers who care about America and real people who travel for a living.

Horrible place
TRANSPORTATION SECURITY OFFICER (Current Employee) –  Newark, NJJanuary 11, 2019
The only saving grace is the cool people you work with. Management does not have a clue of what they are doing. Supervisors in general can tell you one thing and then another one can tell you another thing. There is no concise area.
