Again, high school diploma, clean criminal background record and its $$$!

I heard that there is this may be the last hiring for the year so if anyone out there on the outer island needs a job. Apply now. Parents force your kids to get a job and stop the sponging!!! Hahaha.

Money is money.

kanotoa - good job these days, beats Wal Mart


I can't believe Big Island guys get COLA + Locality and then on top of that they get another 35% to stay on? Who the hell pays that kind of salary. And it TAX FREE, federal, you still got to pay state tax though but DAMN, high school diploma making that kind $$$ = no brainer.

and you get to carry a gun?

No but you get to sift through people's underwear multiple times a day.

FCTV808 - and you get to carry a gun?


As King King said, no, no gun for TSO guys, however, TSO comes under the umbrella of Deparment of Homeland Security. So you have lateral movement rights, people like Air Marshalls, Customs and Border Protection, Border Patrol, Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

So if someone from highschool gets a TSO job, gets a four year degree from an accredited University, then applies internally for something under DHS, they continue to accrue time served for the years worked as TSO and can retire in 21 years in some other DHS organization.

Hell, when I finished high school I worked as a gas station attendant making $3.00 an hour. I was happy when I made $3.25 and then $3.50!

This job counts for federal service for years towards retirement. Its so awesome, no one can go wrong with just the highschool diploma. Work four years, get a degree and make $$$.
