SECURITY: Airport hiring effort kept quiet CONTINUED FROM PAGE Al Doors on the lower levels of the motel sported signs that reflected the various tasks will be conducted: a computer-based aptitude test, physical dexterity, color vision, hearing and drug screening. All of the tests are required in addition to background checks that include a credit check and proof of residency. Typically, Rosenker said, anywhere from five to 10 people are on site to conduct the assessments, with each person performing different tasks involving the applicants. Rosenker said the new agency typically tries to keep assessment sessions low-key so as not to attract attention. She said she was surprised to hear of the yellow caution tape being used but said they hire local security companies to accompany the screenings. "We try to keep it less than obvious," she said of the assessment tests for prospective employees. "But yellow tape is not less than obvious." Hays Regional Airport manager Terry Urban suspected that the Holiday Inn occupants were connected to the TSA hiring effort. But he was unsure how many screeners would be hired to fill the Hays slot. He was among those who questioned if the 33 positions Rosenker said would be hired would be for Hays only or for the entire region, which could include airports at Dodge City Great Bend or Goodland. His question was prompted because of the number of flights at the Hays airport. Hays has two round-trip flights to Denver and two to Kansas City. That's four flights going out and four flights coming in to the airport. Flights leave at 5:30 and 7:30 a.m. each morning, and then arrive again at 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. The afternoon flights depart again shortly after passengers are able to get off the plane while boarding passengers get on. The two planes return to Hays at about 10 p.m. each night, but no security is on hand then because the planes don't leave until the next day Currently, security is handled by •tment and .sageforexp $S of%:i.'|g«f ..^WiV^fl^nient^fflfi^s —' • —-- - federal government for its costs. TSA is scrambling to hire people to fiU the screening jobs that are available. They are spending plenty of money to get the job done. This week, the agency, a branch of the Department of Transportation had 1,231 advertisements listed on the Internet jobs board The 60-day job postings each cost $305. Although it's likely a package deal was put together, if the agency had paid full price, the cost would have been $375,453. Screeners, the basic job that involves routine frontline security and protection of air travelers, will be paid anywhere from '"• $23,600 to $35,400. In addition to the salaries, screeners will be eligible for federal retirement pay. The jobs are being offered on a first-come, first-served basis because of the staffing deadline that ' TSA faces. The agency is urging people to apply for the jobs online. Applicants are notified immediately if they meet minimum requirements. Those requirements include U.S. citizenship, a high school diploma or GED or at least one year of work in security or aviation or with Xray technician work. At least part of the cost of paying the screeners will be borne by airline customers, who will pay a surcharge on airline tickets. Although the initial hiring for Hays has been set at 33, Rosenker said that is more than what will be there over the long term. "We always start out with more because of attrition rates," she said. Exactly when the screeners will start work is uncertain. Rosenker said she never knows more than a week in advance. The Hays employees, she said, are not scheduled to start next week, "It will be before Nov. 19," she said, referring to the deadline for airports to have screeners in place. Anyone hired must complete 40 hours of classroom training in addition to 60 hours of on-the-job training. Training will continue once employees are actively working. When training is complete, screeners will be required , to check baggage for explosives. Some airports will check bag- [age.fQrexplosixe^lo^fp^clfj . have' .

A certain percentage of -the passengers will be randomly selected for a secondary screening at the gate, a process that The city is reimbursed by the Rosenker said already is in use.
