Awesome opportunity if you ever wanted to experience the military
Team Manager / Senior Intelligence Analyst (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – November 2, 2017
Texas Military Department provided the opportunity to be trained as a leader, manager, and team coach. The advancement in rank is based both on time in service and job performance. Beyond the military and leadership training, Texas Military Department also provides the opportunity for training in logistics, planning, human resources, and emergency services. Perhaps most importantly, Texas Military Department places the individual where individual likes and dislikes must be put aside to work as a team to accomplish the mission. This is an amazing opportunity.
Excellent opportunity for training an multiple professional fields
Flexible work hours but mission/task comes first. Opportunity to advance; military and State standards apply. The organization does have its' share of politics, certainly the higher you climb in the organization, but overall it is a good place to work. The employees that work there are committed to the Uniformed Services (Air and Army National Guard) and the local community. The State Guard (volunteer organization), Civil Air Patrol (volunteer organization) are also part of the "military" department. The civilian (or State employee) branch works closely with military members to ensure policy, procedures, and other operational aspects are met.
Good work location; fitness facilities; healthcare
military and civilian supervisory lines are blurred; management of funds
It is an honor and a privilege to serve the people of Texas as a member of the Texas Military Department. "Seldom is heard a discouraging word." The people I work with are all dedicated, focussed, and caring. The National Guard, Air National Guard, and Texas State Guard personnel find great personal satisfaction in responding to the needs of the people of Texas in times of community-scale emergency. We provide shelter, food, and medical care. We also help to secure the border. That mission, in particular, is as much a matter of humanitarian search and rescue as it is support to law enforcement.
Honor. Duty. Texas.
We are only called to respond when other people are in distress.
Security (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – June 3, 2014
Management not in touch with employees. Shortly after being hired on an agreed shift, I was forced to work nights. Management did a poor job in supporting the front line personnel. Pass-a-long information from shift to shift was also poor.
