TSA / Transportation Security Administration / Cheating on Job Interviews and discrimination at TSA!
TSA | Transportation Security Administration - www.tsa.gov.
I had been with TSA going on 6 years as a Transportation Security Officer. I was having a lot of pain in my neck and right shoulder when I found out I had to transfer to another airport because my husband was being transferred with his job. At the new airport which was a lot smaller than the one I came from, the supervisor immediately gave me "problems" hassling me about being on "Limited Duty" due to pain in my shoulder dismissing the fact I regularly brought doctor notes and was on Workmans Comp. I was on Limited Duty for several mos. I was told that I could stay at this position indefinitely on Limited Duty. Meanwhile my co-workers talked about me (snide remarks) like "I just don't want to work" and I might as well quit" and there was a "negative atmosphere" towards me. I left TSA and Federal service with all it's great benefits for a lower paying job with NO benefits just to get out of this crappy situation. Also discrimination goes on with promotion interviews as I saw a Screening Mgr. whispering to a TSO in the hall before an interview for a supervisor position... low and behold! She got the job! What a surprise! TSA is back breaking work as I am still in pain with my neck and back mos. after leaving there. Management shows favoritism and evidently just promotes who they want. It doesn't matter how hard you work there. Also you have to be available to work any shift when you get hired after that you bid for a shift and days off. Might as well work in a factory!
