Airport Security Screener Jobs
Security screeners must screen all passengers and carry-on luggage. They are responsible for passenger safety and detection of potential trouble at security checkpoints located before the boarding gate areas in all airport terminals.
These are entry-level jobs, requiring only a high school diploma. All training is provided on the job, although most new hires will have to take a 12-hour instructional class. Applicants should also be at least 18 years of age and be able to communicate in English. Good customer skills are a plus. Advancement to management positions is possible. Airports usually contract out for checkpoint security. As such, the most effective method of finding a position is to visit a checkpoint station directly where applications are usually kept on hand. Average starting salary: minimum wage to $15.00 per hour, depending on the location of the airport.
