The Transportation Security Administration hosts a one-day recruitment and hiring event this Saturday, Feb. 23 for the Kahului Airport.  The TSA is seeking to recruit full- and part-time Transportation Security Officers.

Starting pay is $21.82 per hour, with opportunities for pay increases after six months.

Interested individuals are invited to begin the application and hiring process by visiting 425 Koloa Street, Suite 106 in Kahului across from the Kanahā Pond State Wildlife Sanctuary 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.

TSA is looking to hire seven TSOs to work at Kahului Airport. The goal is to have many of those who are hired through this TSO recruitment 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. 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 retirement plan.


After the information sessions, those who are interested in pursuing employment with TSA may be asked to take a computer-based aptitude test, participate in a structured interview and leave 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. Interested individuals may also call (877) 872-7990 with any questions.

Similar events will be held on the Big Island and Kauaʻi in the coming weeks.
