  • Transportation Security Officers (TSO)

    This job recently popped up on the federal website. It was for part time positions at the Buffalo airport. My girlfriend put in an application. I was wondering if there is anyone in these forums that has some useful information about the job.

    I put in for it too. I applied to the one at Niagara Falls too and haven't heard back from them. I'm not really familiar with the federal hiring process.

      You are a screener at the airport. The announcement should pretty much spell it out.

      There are more than a few threads about the TSA and TSO positions.

      Use the mighty SEARCH function to learn about the TSA, TSO’s and the federal hiring process.

        Regulatory enforcement status, not law enforcement.

        Part time until full time slots are available. Usually have to wait a while. You pick your rdo's in seniority order every few months, along with terminal assignments. You must pass a practical every so often, if you fail 2x, you lose your job. You can get passenger trained and baggage trained, which works out for overtime.

        Starting pay is OK, add in locality pay for nyc area of around 25%. Different areas have different locality pay.

        Thrift saving plan which you get locked in at 3 years. Pretty good deal, you can cash out at 3 years.

        I got all this from a family member a ho use to work at JFK. He moved on to another fed job after a few years. He enjoyed it for what it was. This was when they had white uniforms, not sure how it is now. I have no contacts.

        Hope it helped a little from what I know.

          stay away from TSA!!!! I used to work at LGA, awful, miserable job. Terrible pay, crap benefits, and if you want to be a LEO that job will make it worse. They have no LE status. Absolute joke. Just being truthful.

              In 2012, I applied for JFK and the process took Aug-Jan. Called for training in Feb but had to decline for personal reasons. The speed of your process will depend on the airport's need.
              First it is a computer based exam, Credit check, Interview, Medical, Background check..

              What I like about the process is that you are able to track your process through their candidate dashboard.

              I have many friends who applied with me back in 2012 and are still working there. They love it.
              For a student out of highschool or in college, it is a great entry level position. It will be what you make of it.

                We applied for this job and haven't gotten any sort of confirmation that they even got the application. Anyone hear anything?

                  It depends on the particular airport and their needs at this very moment. Some get processed quickly while other linger in the line forever. Without Veterans Preference you can start looking for another job as the market is literally flooding with Veterans, who by law get extra points in the ranking of applicants.

                  Did you go to the Dashboard and or USAJobs Application Manager to see what your status was?

                    Just passed the CBT and got a contingent employment offer. Exactly what does the contingent job offer mean? Kinda sounds like a "canvas" letter to me because I haven't done credit or background yet. Anyone know what this means?
