Moderate starting pay, salary/ advancement opportunities stagnate for years

Master Transportation Security Officer (Current Employee) Philadelphia, PA

ProsGet your foot in the door to a government job.
Stable job, good benefits.

ConsIrregular work schedules.
Pay banding causes salary to stagnate and workers get little to no raise for years.
Too much use of part time workers, slow advancement to full time.
High turnover, people get stressed out and tired of waiting for better pay, advancement and full time work.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your employees more fairly.
Change the pay system to the GS Pay system that most government agencies use.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
