The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is holding a one-day recruitment and hiring event Thursday, Feb. 21, in Honolulu to recruit full- and part-time Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) to work at Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL). Starting pay is $17.81 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 American Job Center, 1505 Dillingham Boulevard, Suite 110 in Honolulu between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. 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, passport or a certified copy of a birth certificate.

At this recruiting event, TSA is looking to hire TSOs to work at HNL. The goal is to have many of those who are hired through this event onboard and working ahead of the 2019 summer travel season.

During the information session, TSA officials will discuss the duties of a TSO and the application process.
