NANTUCKET, Ma. – The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is holding a one-day “fast track” recruitment event on Saturday, September 28, 2019, to assist individuals interested in applying for a job as a TSA officer at Nantucket Memorial Airport (ACK).

The starting pay is $21.45 per hour with federal benefits and opportunities for pay increases after six months.

Information sessions are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on September 28, at the Cyrus Peirce Middle School, 10 Surfside Rd., Nantucket, MA 02554.

During the hiring event, TSA officials will discuss the duties of a TSA officer and the application process. They will also 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 session, those who are interested in pursuing employment with TSA may be asked to take a computer-based test, participate in a structured interview and provide fingerprints. The entire process can take between two to four hours, so we recommend arriving early in the day. Applicants will need to undergo a medical exam, which will be scheduled for a later date.

Candidates must be 18 years or older, have a high school diploma, GED or equivalent security experience, and be a U.S. citizen or national. Applicants are required to have two valid forms of state or federal identification.

Those who are interested may learn more online or by calling 877-872-7990. Applicants can also apply online ahead of the event.
