TSA Recruits New Syracuse Airport Officers – Application Deadline Aug. 16, 2023

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) seeks officers to work at Syracuse Hancock International Airport (HIA) and will conduct an application assistance event at the Northern Onondaga Public Library on Aug. 16 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., at 100 Trolley Barn Lane, North Syracuse.

Full-time and part-time TSA officer positions are available, with a starting salary of $37,696. The annual salary increases to $46,245 after one year of service at HIA in Syracuse, and after two years from the hire date, the salary rises to $57,117 per year, which amounts to nearly $20,000 of increased annual income across two years of TSA employment.

Applicants are not required to have previous experience in security or law enforcement fields. Successful applicants will receive extensive training at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, and they will receive pay during their training period.

“The TSA is an agency that protects our national security and it is staffed by well trained and professional officers who ensure the millions of passengers who transit through the airport arrive at their destination safely,” said Bart R. Johnson, TSA’s Federal Security Director for the airports in Upstate New York. “It is also a personally rewarding federal job that offers significant benefits and annual opportunities to see healthy salary increases,” he said, adding that, “Opportunities for professional growth are endless, and new hires will be performing a vital role in the protection of our country.”

TSA requires additional officers to support its security mission given an anticipated surge in travel this summer.

Employees of TSA, both part-time and full-time, enjoy benefits such as paid training, paid annual and sick leave, contributions to the Thrift Savings Plan, retirement contributions, healthcare plans, and the satisfaction of contributing to national security.

TSA says it is dedicated to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environment and strongly encourages individuals from all backgrounds to apply, including military veterans and persons with disabilities.
