A decent paying job with crazy hours.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration)

ProsIt is a federal job so, there are good benefits.

ConsThe downside are the hours the management gets to make up things as they go along. There is little oulet for employees. Having to deal with disgrantled passengers all day in which there is very little that you can do to solve there problems because of policies and procedures.

TSO - highly regimented, demoralizing, and mind-numbing job. I was embarrassed of my job.

TSO (Former Employee)
Tampa, FL

I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) full-time for more than 3 years


Pros: Federal Government Job Pays pretty good for what it is Good benefits and leave Room… Cons: Passengers berate you on a daily basis - the worst things imaginable are said to you every single day, no matter how polite you are… Advice to Senior Management: Don't throw your subordinates under the bus when something goes wrong - watch the checkpoint a little more carefully instead of sitting on your behind… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

Transportation Security Officer (Former Employee)

I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) part-time for more than 3 years


Pros: Benefits, they pay. new advancement scale, too bad it depends… Cons: They hire the laziest, childish people they can find. Advice to Senior Management: fire everyone and start from scratch. Also fire yourselves. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
