DENVER – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is holding a one-day, “fast track” hiring event on Saturday, November 10, to recruit full- and part-time Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) to work at Denver International Airport (DEN). Starting pay is $18.70 per hour, with opportunities for pay increases after 6 months.
This event enables individuals to participate in an accelerated hiring process by first attending an information session and then completing multiple steps in one day.
Information sessions on Saturday are scheduled for 8 a.m., 9 a.m., 10 a.m., 11 a.m., Noon and 1 p.m. at TSA Offices at 3855 Lewiston St. in Aurora. Parking at the building is free. Information sessions, plus the preliminary hiring process, can take between three and five hours, so TSA recommends arriving early in the day.
During the hiring event, 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.
After the information sessions, those who are interested in pursuing employment with TSA may be asked to take a computer-based aptitude test, participate in a structured interview and leave with a medical kit for drug screening. Applicants also will undergo a medical exam, which will be scheduled at a later date. Applicants can apply for the positions on-site, but are encouraged to apply early.
Candidates must be 18 years or older, have a high school diploma, GED or equivalent security experience, and be a US citizen or national. Applicants are required to have two valid forms of state or federal identification.
TSA is looking to hire more than 80 full-time and part-time TSOs to work at DEN. The goal is to have many of them onboard ahead of the busy holiday travel season.
