Part-time security salaries will depend upon a screener's work schedule. Hourly wages can range from $11.30 to $16.96 depending on experience, plus locality pay. Part-time security screeners also are eligible for federal benefits including health insurance, life insurance, retirement, paid annual (vacation) and sick leave. The amount of the premium paid for both health and life insurance and retirement as well as accrued annual (vacation) and sick leave are based upon the work schedule.

Transportation security screeners' duties include providing frontline security and protection of travelers, airports and airplanes by identifying dangerous objects in baggage and on passengers. Their job is to prevent those objects from being transported onto aircraft by utilizing diverse, cutting edge electronic detection and imaging equipment, as well as using the lessons learned from a concentrated training curriculum.

Recruitment of potential candidates is the first step in the deployment of federal screeners. Candidates need to apply on-line and must meet the minimum requirements under the law. Candidates are then assessed, and if hired, are required to successfully complete 40 hours of classroom instruction and 60 hours of on-the-job training. The entire process takes several weeks.

All candidates must meet minimum qualification requirements established by law including:

-- U.S. citizen or U.S. national.

-- High school diploma, GED or equivalent, or 1 year of security or aviation screening experience.

-- English proficiency.

-- Pass a background check.
