    I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) full-time


    There is a lot of room for growth and opportunity to advance. You work for your scheduled hours and htere is nothing ot take home with you.


    Work hours can be odd shifts and jobs require a lot of physical movement and being on your feet for long periods of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people as indivduals, not as numbers. View situations on a case by case basis.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and review process, seems to be extensive. They have several locations in the area where an individual can tae the assessment to see if they qualify and yet, they make you drive all the way toThief River Falls Airport and actually go in to Northland Community College there. Why? There is one in GFK. I had to turn them down for the job, they told me after I put it in all my work and mileage that if hired I will be the low-person on the totem-pole and will have to take very odd shifts and that if I wanted to go on vacation the person with the most seniority would get it that's crazy. I decided to rethink my move!

    Reasons for Declining

    The job seemed to have a lot of inconveniences such as: vacation (seniority), odd hours, etc.
