The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is hosting a two-day recruitment and information session next week to hire full- and part-time Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) to work at Portland International Airport (PDX).
The recruiting sessions will be held Monday, June 10 and Tuesday, June 11 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Sheraton Portland Airport Hotel located at 8235 Northeast Airport Way in Portland. Starting pay for TSOs at PDX is $16.91 per hour, with opportunities for pay increases after six months.
Individuals will have the opportunity to begin the application and hiring process on-site. In order to be considered for employment, applicants must at least 18 years or older, be a U.S. citizen and 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.
At the information sessions, TSA officials will discuss the duties of a TSO and provide helpful details about 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 coverage for full- and part-time employees as well as a generous 401k and pension plan.
