      You will get tired doing baggage checks, also you yourself will get very tired at EOT.

      You will also get very sick and tired of repeating the steps of "remove shoes, metal objects from your pockets and laptops out of their bags".

      Gotta get boring after a while.

      They have a great incentive on TSP, you contribute as much as you want and uncle sam puts in 5% on top of what you put in.

      Benefits still suck. Out of pocket per pay check, not for free.

      Time off and whatever is I think one day per packcheck for sick and regular leave.

      The only real incentive here is that you are an 1800 series employee. Non L/E or anything really special, but it is good for transfers as your time carries to any other fed agency. After 3 years you become a permanent employee and your time still counts even after you resign and do something else and then yet again come back to fed employment.

      goodluck.

          I went trew the whole process for TSA for islip airport. Passed everything never heard anything again from them. Its been about 3 years. Background is a joke, no real background check. I dont even think they interviewed anyone of my ref. or former jobs. As for the test i thought it was some what hard, but received a passing score in my email by the time i got home.

                I would avoid this job unless economically necessary.Its nothing even remotely close to law enforcement.

                Turnover is super high, and morale is very low.

                Whenever a job is constantly open you have to scratch your head and say why?

                            Federal Corrections is 6c covered. They are Federal Law Enforcement.

                              if they're feds, then the benefits continue to degrade (while costing more) since the 60s. it's not at all like the myths would make you think.

                              even self-only insurance is out-of-pocket.
                              the fed is betting you don't contribute to the TSP so they save money.
                              leave is a graduated scale.

                              sick leave: 4 hours per 2-week pay period no increases over your career but also no cap on accummulated S/L.

                              annual leave: 240 hours max carry over per year or lose the excess (use or lose). years 1-3 4hrs/pp, years 4-15 6hrs/pp, years 15-on 8hrs/pp.
