Pharmaceutical Sales Reps?

I just interviewed for a sales position....Just wondering if there are any others on here and if they have opinions.

Thanks

Most of the "detail men" I know these days are usually female and former models and cheerleaders.

I keep waiting for the laws to change and prohibit the door to door marketing of drugs to doctors. And personally, I think the direct to consumer ads for controlled medications is unethical.

Go to Cafepharma.com

It will help you get an idea what its really like. it has all major companies on the forum

The last company I worked for made sales software for pharma reps. Hot chicks everywhere but most of them and mangers say they feel like paid whores lol

Also If you don't meet your sales threshold you will be fired. But there is a ton of money in that business.

I don't believe in loading up in meds either, but Ive known a few that did it and made a very nice living. A buddy refered me to a website and I filled out teh app and got a call the next day.

The way I see it, is work is work. Make money to buy all the cool shit you want and enjoy doing.

If your not a hot chick, good luck in this job market.. My sister has been doing this job for about 10 years now. Gets great pay, works about 20 hours a week and is a top performer at her company.

My sister is also as dumb as a box of crayons. She can't operate a screw driver, doesn't know how to check her tire pressure. Yet she has a good memory, was a former cheer leader, and knows how to flirt with men which gets her big sales. Just a note, her entire sales team is all women, but a guy manager.

So if your a hot girl with big tits you have a pretty good chance.
