Tsa Jobs

TSA Job Overview

The Transportation Security Administration is responsible for ensuring that everyone who flies in the country is safe. Following the events of September 11, 2001, the TSA increased the number of officers and agents working throughout the country. Those agents keep an eye out for suspicious people, inspect bags that passengers bring on flights and make sure that everyone follows the rules about what they can and cannot bring with them. They use screening machines and X-ray machines to get an idea about the content of each bag. TSA officers may also warn others about potential hazards and problems they identify.

TSA Job Education Requirements

Approximately 85 percent of all TSA agents have a high school diploma or its equivalency. Eleven percent of all officers have some type of college degree, and four percent of agents have only a small amount of high school education. Those without a diploma are those who started at the TSA before September 11, 2001. All TSA agents must now have a high school diploma or equivalent, and some of the upper level positions within the TSA require a bachelor's degree in criminal justice or a similar field.

TSA Job Market

In 2012, there were approximately 50,000 men and women working in TSA jobs in the country. In that same year, the number of jobs increased by 0.8 percent at the same time that the salary increased by 0.5 percent. Most officers work for the federal government, but some agents work for state or local governments in smaller airports. There are also a small number of TSA agents working in the freight and transportation industries.

TSA Job Salary Information

TSA agents put their lives on the line every day in the same way that other security professionals do. Those looking at security jobs may find Armored Car Driver jobs and Secret Service Special Agent jobs appealing. TSA officers can earn as little as $17,000 a year or as much as $40,000 a year. This equals out to an hourly wage of $15 or more per hour, which doesn't include any of the benefits that are associated with the job.
