It had its ups and downs

Transportation Security Officer (Former Employee)
Cleveland, OH

I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) full-time for 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 Senior ManagementI'd be wasting my time to advise management of anything. They wouldn't listen because it wasn't their idea.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

It's not what you think! Worse than a concentration camp!

TSO (Former Employee)
New York, NY

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


Pros: The health benefits and looks like you are a God,… Cons: Everything about this company, in every state, is the worst nightmare you will ever… Advice to Senior Management: Stop treating employees like the terrorists, Make rules reasonable, ex: Nobody can lift 70 lb suitcases alone for 8 hrs straight… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
