Certified Athletic Trainer Reviews

What is it like working as a Certified Athletic Trainer?

Certified Athletic Trainer in Baltimore:
Pros: The school I work at. The Doctor that I own and work with on a regular basis. My supervisor who has a good understanding of what is realistic and not. Having sick and faction time.
Cons: Lack of others stepping up to help out. Currently feel like I am the only one who is willing to make last min changes for the best of the group. Lack of pay that comes with the more responsibility that I have been given.
