Certified Athletic Trainer Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Certified Athletic Trainer?

Certified Athletic Trainer:
Great coworkers, decent benefits. However, upper management does not understand job functions and has poor communication so it is hard to make any forward organizational progress. Compensation is below average with multiple responsibilities, but it is preferred that you get little to no overtime making for stressful days.

Cons: commute

Certified Athletic Trainer in Asheville:
"Beautiful city."
Pros: Casual lifestyle
Cons: Job demand

Certified Athletic Trainer in Pittsburgh:
"That dedication does not match salary."
I would suggest to have a dual degree or a backup plan in case athletic training does not work for you. Prepare to work long days and hours each August. Make sure you know the rules and regs for your state. Network network network. Have a positive attitude or this job will kill you. Good luck.

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.
