TSA to Host Recruitment and Hiring Event in St. Louis

Posted on April 10, 2019 in Media Releases

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is holding a hiring event this Saturday to recruit Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) to work at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL). 

The event will be held this Saturday, April 13th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Marriott St. Louis West Hotel, 660 Maryville Centre Drive, St. Louis, MO 63141. Starting pay for TSOs at STL is $15.78 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 and passport.

During the information session, TSA officials will discuss the duties of a TSO and the hiring 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 part-time and/or full-time employment with TSA may participate in completing an application, taking a computer-based aptitude test, completing a structured interview and potentially leaving with a medical kit for drug screening and a medical exam, which will be scheduled at a later date.

Applicants can apply for the positions at the recruitment event, but can also begin the application process online at https://hraccess.tsa.dhs.gov/hraccess/index.html. Interested individuals may also call (877) 872-7990 with any questions.
