LINTHICUM, Md. – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI) is hiring and hopes to fill about 50 positions by summer as part of the agency’s push to fill more than 6,000 TSA officer positions nationwide.
The openings at BWI are mostly for part-time employees with the ability to transition to full-time as positions become available.
“We’re looking to hire more officers by summer,” said Andrea R. Mishoe, TSA’s Federal Security Director for Maryland. “Our TSA officers fill a critical role in that their mission is to ensure that passengers arrive at their destinations safely. We expect to screen a greater volume of travelers regularly by summer and we will need additional officers to support that vital mission.”
Based on anticipated seasonal travel trends in the months ahead and the progress of COVID-19 vaccinations for the general public, TSA has launched national efforts to recruit new employees in support of screening operations at many of the agency’s airports nationwide including at BWI.
Benefits of working at TSA include paid training, annual and sick leave, health care plans for full- and part-time employees and a generous retirement plan. TSA is committed to a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environment and encourages individuals of all backgrounds to apply, including military veterans and persons with disabilities. Starting pay in Baltimore is $18.57 per hour with opportunities for pay increases after six months.
