DENVER – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is holding several Fast Track hiring events this week to recruit full- and part-time Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) to work at Denver International Airport (DEN).

The events will be held Thursday-Saturday, March 15-17, at the Crowne Plaza Denver Airport Convention Center, 15500 E. 40th Avenue, Denver. Session start times are 7:30 a.m., 9:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 3:00 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 Larry Nau, TSA Federal Security Director for Colorado. “We’re holding these events to speed up the hiring process for qualified individuals who are interested in joining our team in Denver in advance of the busy summer travel season.”

During each session, TSA officials will discuss the duties of a TSO 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- and part-time employees, and 401k coverage. Starting pay is $17.85 per hour.

After the information sessions, those who are interested in moving forward will be able to participate in an 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.
