    Pros

    "Federal Job." Medical benefits for those who are part-time. Excellent benefits. It looks great to have the Department of Homeland Security on your resume.

    Cons

    Dealing with extremely rude passengers on a regular basis and not having the support of supervisors or management. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take some classes. Acquire managerial skills Pronto!

    I have been working at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay is good especially coming out of college
    Set schedule every six months

    Cons

    Management is out to get you, have to watch constantly what you say or do
    Testing every year that if you fail multiple times you're fired
    Bonuses that most won't get, mostly due to management not wanting to write up how you preformed during the last year

    Pros

    In depth training on local and global threats that surround our society on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Seniority , inflexible work hours. Essential emergency personnel(work during inclement weather conditions) Micro managed at times. Various other aspects that make a simple job, more difficult than it actually is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is the federal government. Management is aware of the existing issues across the board. The issues can be addressed but to many people are calling the shots.

    I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) full-time

    Pros

    There is a lot of room for growth and opportunity to advance. You work for your scheduled hours and htere is nothing ot take home with you.

    Cons

    Work hours can be odd shifts and jobs require a lot of physical movement and being on your feet for long periods of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people as indivduals, not as numbers. View situations on a case by case basis.

    Working with the public, working for the government

    The government needs to quit changing rules and policies all the time so employees and the public are on the same page.
