    truth be told, I'm only 25 right now and working for TSA. i would like to move into the DEA or FBI and I figured anything is better then TSA. I applied to the SA position with the SS, but was told that I did not qualify. I was emailed that I was best qualified for an agent position with the DEA, but I heard their process takes forever. I just finished my masters and I'm just really trying to get out of TSA and onto something better with more of an opportunity to advance. Is the SO position with the SS that or is it just another position like TSA? I'm not trying to dig myself into a deeper hole.

      Dude, I dont wanna see anyone get screwed, if you want to advance, the only advance you'll get, is to the next post (there's a rotation), this isn't it. You CAN do other things in the uniform division, ie. K-9, counter sniper, magnetometers, etc.. AND you'll get to travel, SOs use to travel, but they don't anymore. They stopped it a couple years ago. You'll be working with mostly (not all, but the majority) old timers riding out their time.

      If you hate the TSA, I'm sorry to tell you this, once you get on as a SO, you're gonna wish you would have stayed. I'll say this, and I mean this with ALL honesty here, its hard getting IN TO the usss (and thats any job even as a SO) and it literally could be HARDER getting OUT as a SO..

          did you used to be an SO? It seems like going from TSA to SS would be a good jump, but you're making it seem like SO is way worse then TSA and I'm not sure how that's possible. TSA is hated more then the IRS!

                I can't send you a PM (private message) because you don't have the feature turned on, go to the upper right corner of your screen, click on your profile name, and a drop down tab will open up, click on settings, scroll down, left side of the srean.. click on general settings and turn on your private messaging.

                              I was called for an interview. I waited 30 minutes past the scheduled time with no phone call. Later that night i got called asking me to call the deputy special officer.

                                Did HR send you any information for the background investigation yet? That's what I'm waiting on, I was told by an agent that I would be receiving it, but that was last Thursday. I'm hoping I hear something back by Monday.
