Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at TSA (Transportation Security Administration).

Interview

The interview process with a bit long and nerve racking. You get interview by 2-3 officers (like now isn't scary enough, haha) they ask you about 3+ questions per officer. But before you actually get interviewed they have you take a vision test, which is kind of fun and calming. I had two female officers they were both nice women, but can definitely hold a poker face.

Interview Questions

  • Can't list questions because they have you sign a disclosure. They ask mostly situational questions.   Answer Question

    It was laid back. I felt welcome. It was definitely one of the less stressful and easy interviews I have been through. There were not too many questions and none were about the job specifically.

The interview was two on one, I was asked 7 questions with follow up answers like, how did you handle it and what was the outcome. I have my medical check next week, so I won't have possible offer until after that.

Everyone was quite pleasant and it was actually a pretty okay experience. There was another guy interviewing at the same time as me so I had someone to speak to while we waited. Which there was a lot of waiting but overall it went by really fast

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) (San Jose, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    After you complete the initial screening and testing you are asked to do an airport assessment. This involves fingerprints, color vision test, and interview. The interview was pretty basic and simple. I don't think it is to hard to pass as I felt like I did not do my best but still passed it. After that I was scheduled for medical and told to complete my background forms. It's a very long process so be prepared to wait.
