    This is a second career for me. Compared to the commercial sector the benefits are great and there's virtually no waiting period. The starting pay scale is not that great but there are opportunities to advance. The upper management that I've been dealing with have been awesome.


    Starting pay and time off policies,

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at TSA (Transportation Security Administration).

    Interview Details

    Very tedious hiring process, first assessment wasn't too hard, medical was focused on physical condition and making sure your drug and alcohol free, background inquires and check was intense, training very long and requires at least 3 weeks 5 days a week about 8-10 hrs a day. Before the training you should work through all the steps quickly or you might get dropped and have to wait 6 months to reapply.
