Local Press Release

SEATTLE – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is holding several Fast Track hiring events this week to recruit full-time and part-time transportation security officers to work at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA).

The events will be held Thursday-Saturday, March 8-10, at the Hilton Seattle Airport and Conference Center, 17620 International Blvd., in Seattle. Session start times are 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. each day. Applicants should arrive 15 mins. prior to the start of the session and bring two valid forms of state or federal identification.

“This is a unique opportunity to learn how you can be on the front lines of aviation security,” said Chris Baden, TSA deputy federal security director for Washington. “We’re holding these events to speed up the hiring process for qualified individuals who are interested in joining our team in Seattle in advance of the busy summer travel season.”

During each session, TSA officials will discuss the duties of a transportation security officer and the application process. They also will provide an overview of working for the federal government and discuss benefits, which include paid leave, health care plans for full-time and part-time employees and 401k coverage. Starting pay is $17.80 per hour.

After the information sessions, those who are interested in moving forward will be able to participate in a structured interview to assess qualifications, take a computer-based aptitude test, and schedule a drug screening and medical exam. Applicants can apply for the positions on-site, but are encouraged to apply early on the HR Access website.
