Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
We all know our scheduling availability, and you need to be candid about how many hours per week you can truly commit to the role.

If you are available 40+ hours a week, that is great! Share this with the interviewer, and share if there are any times of the week that you would not be available to work extra hours.

If you are not able to work overtime, you need to share this with the interviewer. If there are certain times of the year when you could work overtime, be sure to share this information with the interviewer as well clearly explaining what additional hours or days of the week you could be available.

Why do you want to leave your current employer?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Begin by telling the interviewer what you have liked about your current employer. Focusing on the positives first will help the interviewer see your good intentions! Next, share that you want to leave your current employer to become a TSA Screener, and share why the TSA Screener job appeals to you more than your current position. For example, you might state, "I realized this past year that I want to be a TSA Screener. The job is very important and has great meaning, and I think I would do really well at it. I like the TSA Screener job more than my current job because it will allow me to interact with people face-to-face. Right now, I communicate with people over the phone all day, and I prefer the face-to-face interaction."
