Skyler in Pasadena, California said: HARD. I've been in medical device sales for almost 5 years. I came into this industry with actual medical experience and sales experience. This isn't your normal 9-5 monkey type job selling insurance , copiers, or any other commodity a monkey could sell. Without medical experience, why on earth would a company send you into the OR and consult a Dr. on a surgery he's doing with your product? Go away.
I had no direct sales experience and no medical experience. I knew someone who got me in the door. I have been in device sales for 5 years and doing very well. It is very hard work, but you don't need to be a doctor or nurse to do it. Don't let this guys ego get in the way of pursuing a career in it. He is a joke.
