Excellent Training, Professional, Stable, Career Based.
Administrative (Former Employee), Houston, TexasAugust 11, 2015
Pros: Great benefits and retirement packages. Take advantage of them.
Cons: Administration turnover is Excessive
Excellent Training Opportunities, Professional, Stable and Career Based. I had the opportunity to get extensive training during my career there, including traveling all over the states. I was able to hold 9 positions and happily retire. Needless to say I am an ecstatic person and move on to my second career. My advice to all employees is to utilize the training opportunities while you are there as a State employee, invest into your retirement and be punctual.

Productive hands on learning environment
Student-Athletic Trainer (Former Employee), Houston, TexasJune 5, 2015
Pros: Hands on learning, scholarships, books for school, free travel, networking.
Cons: Not much free time
A typical day consisted of arriving an hour before team practice to open the training room and prepare for treatment and taping. Once the training room was ready for use I set up the gym for practice and surveyed the court for safety hazards. My two years of working as the Student- Athletic Trainer for the women's basketball team taught me how to manage time wisely and work smart not hard. It also taught me how to make quick decisions. The hardest part of the job was the hostility I may encounter from an upset athlete or coach. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing athletes come back from injuries and perform at optimum level after doing rehabilitation and treatment with me.
