Airport Screeners Jobs

Airport screener jobs are responsible for providing frontline security and screening all passengers and their luggage before boarding the aircraft. Staying alert for the safety of the passengers and being able to detect and prevent any potential dangers at the checkpoints located before the boarding gates at all airport terminals is their main function and duty. Having two or three employees working at each checkpoint, one person typically monitors the x-ray equipment to detect any dangerous items that may be in an individual's carry on items. Another worker is used to make sure that the walkthrough metal detection is operating efficiently. A third person is used to scan passengers and luggage by hand by means of a metal detector wand if necessary. While not having the authority to arrest suspects, airport screening jobs can coordinate with the airport police during any possible criminal disturbances. Since airports are open 24 hours a day, irregular shifts and hours may be necessary.

As entry level positions, the minimum educational requirement for a airport screener job is a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent. The training for these careers is given on the job after an instructional training class for the new hires. Job seekers for airport screeners jobs should be able to communicate well in English and be at least 18 years of age. Employers would also prefer that job seekers have previous experience in security or x-ray technician work. Job opportunities for airport screener jobs should remain consistent with the national average for all occupations.
