Pros: Work outings and other events developed by HR team for positive workplace relationships.
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 – more... 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. – less
Productive and a fun work place for all coworkers.
Assembler 2 (Current Employee), Arden Hills, MN – June 5, 2015
At DJO Global our work ethic was excellent. Typical days at work coworkers works together to help accomplish jobs at times. We are very friendly towards one another. At this job I learned how to utilize different sewing machines to make different products. Since we all mastered our skills there was nothing hard about our job that we had to worry about.
Over all not bad but lacks the maturity of a well established company
Compliance Engineer (Contractor) (Former Employee), Vista, CA – April 9, 2015
Pros: Nice people, nice facility, lots of resources
Cons: Organizational structure??? Commitment, Accountability leave more to be desired
DJO is a relatively good commercial company to work for. The organizational structure however has lots of turnover and does not seem to be able to react quickly to the high turnover rate. Consequently – more... their seems to be many gaps in their product management.
By contrast the product regulatory group is growing in order to meet the needs of product safety compliance and is very committed to maintaining global compliance for most of their product lines.
Manufacturing has many challenges of which they seem to be trying to keep up with but just cant catch up with... DJO Global is a conglomerate created by in ingestion of several smaller medical companies, each with its own drawing system and processes and procedures. DJO currently has the challenge of combining all of this information from the merged companies into the new Agile ERP systems, progress is good but will take time to perfect.

Patient Accounts Specialist II (Former Employee), Shoreview, MN – January 11, 2015
Pros: some days they provide lunch
Cons: too much like big brother
It was very nerve racking to come in to working knowing you have done your job but not feeling stable in your position. You watch corporate go through people constantly. No loyalty at all. Makes it very hard to feel stable in your own position.
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 – more... 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. – less

One on interaction with patients/Physicians. Fit braces on patients depending on diagnosis. Filled out paperwork attaching accurate paperwork according to insurance billing procedures.

Quality Control Inspector (Current Employee), Asheboro, NC – February 4, 2014
DJO makes medical garments such as socks and hosiery. A typical day in the Quality Alert Lab is to ensure that all aspects of the garment meet medical specifications. Proper relaxed length, stretches, – more... pulls and compression is a must in these garments since they are medical.I work 2nd shift so I basically worked on my on, management know that I am reliable and a responsible worker. The hardest part of the job is when nothing is right and the product has to be trashed and completely redone. The best part of the job is knowing that my job helps so many people lead better lives. – less
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 – more... 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. – less
I love my work and I am very proud of my profession at DJO Global! The management has been supportive, encouraging, and helped to grow professionally.
Specialized Patient Care/Sales Representative (Current Employee), Saint Paul, MN – October 30, 2013
DJO Global has been one of the best companies to work for. This company not offers stability and professional growth but also has created a difference in patient's lives by the superior products they manufacture – more... and market, and that is something I am very proud of. The managers that I have worked with over 16 years saw great potential in me due to my strong sales and business development performance. Because of their support and encouragement, I had the opportunity to advance to two sales positions. The managers have complimented me on my dedication, initiative, creativity, teamwork, and my desire to make a thorough success. Not to mention, my communication, organizational, analytical, motivational, and problem solving skills have truly excelled over the years and helped become a leader in business development, productivity, and sales conversions.
This position has been challenging due to economic climate and constantly changing healthcare industry yet I am consistently ranked high by delivering multi-million dollar sales revenue. I have been instrumental in generating significant market share growth through the execution of targeted sales and business development strategies leading to several prestigious awards including Diamond Club, Presidents Club, and Champions Club. As an employee I am very enthusiastic, focused, attentive, energetic, self-motivated, task driven, punctual, and a driven sales leader that excels under heavy pressure. – less
Sales and Service Representative (Former Employee), Shoreview, MN – August 6, 2013
Pros: helping people
Cons: little support from upper managerment
The most enjoyable part of the job is helping folks with their healing process and pain. Co-workers are great. Travel is required and there are not enough hours in the day it seems for all the paperwork.
