Those who are hired will receive a $500 hiring bonus and an additional $500 bonus after one year of service within TSA.
"Based on anticipated seasonal travel trends in the months ahead and the progress of COVID-19 vaccinations for the general public, TSA has launched efforts to recruit new employees in support of screening operations in Upstate New York airports in addition to many of the agency’s other airports nationwide," a release says.
The TSA says benefits of working both part and full-time include: paid training, annual and sick leave and strong health care plans.
Applicants do not need previous experience working in security or law enforcement fields. Our officers will receive extensive training at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and they are paid while undergoing training.
