    I applied in-person – interviewed at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Easy process but I didn't receive the airport asestment until a year after taking the CBT. Questions aren't hard at all so nothing to worry about. You sign a form where you agree not to disclose any information but trust me it is not hard.

    Interview Questions
    • I will not consider any of the steps for the TSO position to be difficult. However, you must do some research on how to respond to life experience/situational questions for the interview.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because I was offered the job right after being hired by a law enforcement agency.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    First off you have to pass a computer test that included basic english and math along with x-ray photos that you have a limited time to scan in order to pick out certain objects. all in all test is not difficult.
    If you pass the computer test next is the interview. I hear larger airports give panel interviews but my Oakland airport interview was with one HR employee. Situational questions about how you dealt with normal customer service scenarios in previous jobs were asked.
    At some point you have to take a drug test and tsa conducts a background investigation
