    I worked at TSA (Transportation Security Administration) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    you get to work with the public and secure them on their flights, you get to work with x-ray machines and metal detectors, you learn to use ion scanners and full body scanners, and you get to wear a badge

    Cons

    can get fast paced with little breaking time, you are always in the public eye and this requires a wide latitude

    Advice to Management

    Maintain understanding of passengers needs and support your staff in a positive manner and their professional attitude is always appreciated
