NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is holding an event this Saturday to recruit and hire Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) to work at Nashville International Airport (BNA).

The event will be held Saturday, March 16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Sheraton Music City Hotel, 777 McGavock Pike in Nashville. Starting pay for TSOs at BNA is $17.97 per hour, with opportunities for pay increases after six months.

Interested individuals are invited to begin the application and hiring process by coming to the event. In order to be considered for employment, applicants are required to have two valid forms of state or federal identification. Examples of acceptable forms of identification are a driver license, military ID card, passport or a certified copy of a birth certificate.

During the information session, TSA officials will discuss the duties of a TSO and the application process. Applicants will be briefed on the benefits of working for the federal government including paid training, annual and sick leave, health care plans for full- and part-time employees and a generous retirement plan.

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 and a medical exam, which will be scheduled at a later date.
