Positive work enviroment, excellent job security and benefits.
Quality Inspector and Material Handler II (Former Employee) – Plainfield, IN – July 11, 2016
A joy to go in and get right to work without the aid of anyone in direction. Good training program with a wonderful diverse team. Main goal being attendance, attitude and productivity making focus more direct with little distraction towards each daily goal. Wonderful challenges each week allowing one to advance themselves in product and software knowledge and eventually promotions. Job hours being 3am to 3:30pm Monday through Friday and then coming back in Friday evening at 8pm to 4:30am making a 70+ hour week a challenge outside of work but the pay was worth it.
Good benefit package, solid hours, advancement opportunity and good job security
Went through temp service constantly getting unreliable people coming through.
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – August 17, 2016
Decent place to work. However, it's very clique oriented. And if your not in one it's very difficult to advance. Hard work is not rewarded as much as being a social butterfly. Management doesn't listen to their employees often enough. Merit raises are more like a cost of living raise if your a lucky one. On the possitve, quarterly bonuses are available when making their numbers. Insurance is decent. And if you like OT, it's pretty much available.
Quarterly bonuses, Insurance, luncheons on occasion, group outings.
Hourly pay, management, lack of advancement opportunities, segregated atmosphere.
Patient Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – February 24, 2016
Working in sales is much easier when you have really great products, and this company did. The mission was to provide non-medicinal pain relief to chronic and acute pain sufferers, as well as aid in any required measures for rehabilitation.
This job gave me the ability to really appreciate people. All people, and from all walks of life. I developed many long lasting professional and personal relationships, the bounty being truly non-measurable.
The patients, physicians, therapists and coworkers on a daily basis.
Rogue management, non existent leadership after the company sold.
Co-workers were fun to be with. Created an enjoyable work environment. Learned to multitask at a high level. Handled over 5 thousand accounts that were related to auto injury or workers compensation injuries. Hardest part of the job was staying on track with the day to day job duties. Most enjoyable part was creating new business relationships as well as personal relationships.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Vista – May 10, 2016
DJO is a very antiquated company. Most duties are manual and the applications and programs are from the 90's. The leadership is lacking and there is no recognition for hard work. There is definitely potential for it to be a great place to work, however, there is no one driving that initiative.
If you are in managment you will make a killing.......if not, you may stay a couple years and make 36k Anually.
Sales Rep (Current Employee) – PA – September 28, 2015
I work as a sales rep and work with Doctors and administration on a daily basis putting together lunches and selling our products. If I am not with a doctor right now, I am doing paperwork for a doctor. Most people think I make at least 100k with this level of work and professionalism. I work 70 hours per week (counts the time I put in at night and weekends). They are amazed to find out that while I sell durable medical devices, I only make 40k a year. I too am starting to become amazed because there does not seem to be room for advancement. I have heard that my boss makes $220,000 a year and works less hours than I do. Much less. Myself and all other young people are only here for experience. We will leave to go to a better paid company once we have the proper experience. That's what is missing. I wish I could have a career here but it does not seem to be the businesses plan to keep people for long. If you want people to think you are making great money work for DJO global. Go to any other Ortho company to make the real bucks. Also, please take those nice $100 plate dinners and add them to my check. It's obnoxious.
Can get into entry level positions with little experience.
Senior Territory Manager (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – January 6, 2015
In 10 years the company had been through 5 mergers. The core products were excellent. The company dynamics had changed when DJO took over the company which was in large part completely negative for our division.
I gained much experience selling into physician offices, disease states, medications, treatment protocols, specialties and much much more. It was an extremely positive experience with the company but in the end it was not stimulating and positive. I felt under appreciated, underpaid and over scrutinized.
Clinic service dept was the best place in the whole company to work
CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE 3 (Current Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – January 30, 2016
Everyone in the dept helped each other out day in and day out. We would get our work done but we all had fun doing it. We are the best customer service in the whole company because we care about your customers and patients alike.
A typical day working at DJO Global involved a high volume of outbound and inbound calls to generate revenue. Normal daily call rate averaged 125 calls per day. In this position I learned about insurances and how they operate from a back end perspective. I also learned a variety of sales techniques specific to medical sales and phone sales. The sales management team was very good at allowing the sales team to have freedom but did not always communicate expectations clearly outside of monthly quotas. The most difficult aspect of this position was keeping up with changes among insurance providers as they had a tendency to change month by month, however, the challenge that this position provided and the reward when challenges were met made the position enjoyable.
Work outings and other events developed by HR team for positive workplace relationships.
Patient Care Services/ PCS/ ASR (Current Employee) – Shoreview, MN – January 20, 2014
This place sucks the life out of you. For the inside reps, there has been 4 comp plans in 3 years with another on the way. They did a huge lay off of the outside sales force last year and another earlier this month, with some inside people let go each time as well. The company is in pure survival mode. Most patients do find the products very helpful, the problem is that Medicare is not covering the main product from the most common diagnosis and most private insurers are following Medicare's lead.
The training is lackluster at best and the management is never anywhere to be found. If you are an inside rep, there is NO opportunity for advancement. NONE! The best thing about working there is the flexible schedule, as long as you work 8 hours a day, you can work your own schedule.
Great coworkers that were always fun & willing to help one another out. Was a very challenging & busy position. Medicare guidelines were constantly changing so, the ability to cope with constant changes in our day-to-day processes was a must.
On site catering daily & we could listen to our music
