DENVER, Colo. – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is holding a one-day, “fast track” hiring event on Saturday, March 23, to recruit full- and part-time TSA officers to work at Denver International Airport (DEN). Starting pay is $20.40 per hour, with opportunities for increases after six months. TSA is looking to hire additional officers ahead of the busy summer travel period.
The hiring event will be held at the Embassy Suites Denver-Stapleton at 4444 N. Havana St. Information sessions are scheduled at 8 a.m., 9 a.m., 10 a.m., 11 a.m., noon and 1 p.m. Parking is free. Information sessions, plus the preliminary hiring components, can take between three and five hours, so TSA recommends arriving early in the day.
This event enables individuals to participate in an accelerated hiring process by first attending an information session and then completing multiple application steps in one day. Applicants must be 18 years or older, a U.S. citizen or national, and have a high school diploma, GED or security experience equivalent. Applicants are required to have two valid forms of state or federal identification. Examples of acceptable IDs are a driver’s license, military ID card, passport or a certified copy of a birth certificate.
During the hiring event, TSA officials will discuss the duties of a TSO and the application process. They also will discuss benefits, which include paid leave, health care plans for full- and part-time employees and 401k coverage.
After the information sessions, those who are interested in pursuing employment with TSA may be eligible to take a computer-based aptitude test and participate in a structured interview. Candidates who successfully complete all components will leave with a medical kit. Applicants also will undergo a medical exam and drug screen, which will be scheduled at a later date.
Applicants can apply for the positions at the recruitment event, but can also begin the application process online. Interested individuals may also call (877) 872-7990 with any questions.
