MILWAUKEE – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is launching recruitment efforts across Wisconsin to fill part-time Transportation Security Officer (TSO) positions by summer in Rhinelander, Appleton, La Crosse, Mosinee and Green Bay.

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 security officer positions throughout airports in Wisconsin and more than 6,000 nationwide.

“TSOs are on the front line of defense in securing our nation’s commercial air transportation system,” said Mark Lendvay, TSA Federal Security Director for Wisconsin. “Every day, our officers in Wisconsin screen thousands of airline travelers ensuring they arrive at their destinations safely. We expect to screen a higher number of travelers regularly by the summer months and will need additional officers to support our critical mission.”

Benefits 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 at Wisconsin airports is $16.51 per hour for part-time employees with opportunities for pay increases after six months.

TSA seeks those who want to take the initial step into a rewarding federal career and support TSA’s critical mission of protecting our nation’s transportation systems. For more information on the duties, of a TSO and to learn a little more about TSA’s mission, a video titled “Day in the Life of a TSO” is available.
