Former Employee - Transportation Security Officer in Cleveland, OH

I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

- Overall a great bunch of people to work with
- Decent benefits
- Decent pay for the work required
- Job security
- Seniority based shift, days off, and duty location selection. Can be a "Con" if you're low on the seniority list

Cons

- Incompetent Management
- Promotion and job selections are not based on merit. They're based on who you know.
- No incetive for senior employees to get a promotion, as they will lose all of their seniority at the next rank. As a result, people who have been working there for 10 years end up having someone who's worked there 1 year as thier superior.
- Procedures change like the weather. Job related news is usually poorly passed down and often found out on the local media before hearing about it from management/supervision.
- Shift selections are odd hours and days off; based on seniority. It's a "Pro" if you have seniority.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I'd be wasting my time to advise management of anything. They wouldn't listen because it wasn't their idea.

    Pros

    The health benefits and looks like you are a God, on your resume.

    Cons

    Everything about this company, in every state, is the worst nightmare you will ever have. My 3 lawsuits are coming up against them at the end of Oct. 2012.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating employees like the terrorists, Make rules reasonable, ex: Nobody can lift 70 lb suitcases alone for 8 hrs straight 5 days a week, stop abuse of authority, stop harassment, and discrimination, focus on why we are here, and so much more.

    Doesn't Recommend
