COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is holding a two-day recruiting event Tuesday, May 11 and Wednesday, May 12 to assist individuals interested in applying for a job as a Transportation Security Officer (TSO) at John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH).

Attendees will receive information about full- and part-time TSO positions and have the opportunity to complete multiple steps of the hiring process. The event includes a presentation about the TSO role, application assistance, computer-based testing and in-person interviews for job seekers. Participants will be able to complete all or part of these processes which will significantly reduce the time required to get on board with TSA.

As part of the presentation sessions during the event, TSA 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, 401k coverage and more.

Starting pay at CMH is $18.78 per hour with opportunities for pay increases after six months. The Transportation Security Administration is also offering a sign-on bonus of up to $1,000.00 for new hires that onboard before June 30, 2021 at CMH.

The event takes place at the Columbus Airport Marriott, 1375 North Cassady Avenue, Columbus, Ohio, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. both days.

Participating in the information session and preliminary hiring process components can take between three and four hours, so TSA recommends arriving early in the day. Candidates are required to have two valid forms of state or federal identification.

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 TSO position and to learn more about TSA careers, visit jobs.tsa.gov/TSO.
