Pros: company car, opportunity to get into the pharmaceutical sales field
Cons: being dowsized, drug formularies
As a Pharmaceutical Sales Rep, I had a territory that included parts of 3 states, Pa, WV, and MD. My primary targets were pediatricians, but I also marketed to primary care, psychiatrist, and ENT offices.
This job taught me patience, a lot of waiting in doctor offices throughout my day.
I had a very good manager that even though he was hours away, was always available and would reach out weekly to ask out our week.
I was fortunate to have experienced co-workers that helped me out during my first couple of weeks in the field.
The most challenging part of my job was getting into see non prescribing doctors.
The most enjoyable part was when I was able to earn commitments from those same doctors.
