This job is EXTREMELY Overrated

Transportation Security Officer (Current Employee) Newark, NJ

ProsIf you have no life and are willing to work constantly then I would say the pay is good. I've met some wonderful people.

ConsManagement is completely clueless. The SOP (rule book) is CONSTANTLY changing and you are expected to know and keep up with all changes even though you aren't given much, if any, time to train. You are micro-managed and treated as a number. You slave away for 6hrs as a part timer only to receive a 15 min break. Schedule changes every 6 months and the chances of working within 9-5 are slim to none.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more realistic when enforcing rules because everything isn't black and white.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
