Default Sonicare Sales Representative at Philips Medical

Are their any Sonicare sales reps out there? Can anyone give me some feedback about this position and how Sonicare's products are perceived by dentists. I am interviewing with this company.

Familiar with this company. Good overall job, especially if you are looking to break into dental or device sales. Not too much real sales here. Mature product, no huge growth curves. A lot of smoozing and give aways. Good for a year or two, especially if you are using it to get into medical or dental sales. Long term, you will be bored out of your mind.

Thank you so much, any idea on the bonus structure? Do dentists buy products pretty regularly? Couldn't they just get something similar from their dealer rep?

This guy is full of it, I worked As a Sonicare rep and there are no "give aways". It is just like any other sales job, you are judged by a revenue # and new business gained. Typicall 12 % increase over prior year. It is a well established product and the Drs love it, but getting them to sell it is a little different, they do not make much $$$. you have to sell them on patient benefit and compliance.

That being said, it is a mid level sales job great break through position. Philips is a great Co. I enjoyed every minute I worked there, great people.

Default Re: Sonicare Sales Representative at Philips Medical

The person posting messages about the $1600 bonus has old information. Here is the deal: I work for Sonicare, my base salary is 55K. Every quarter, I make $4000 in bonus if I hit my goal (100% or better). At the end of the year, I can make an additional 22K in bonus if I have overachieved in every bucket, which is actually possible. So bottom line is, it is possible and likely that one could make 90K plus in this job if they actually go to work and do their lunches. I think they said that about 25% of reps maxed out their bonus, meaning their overall year end number was 120% to plan or better. We just got our numbers and I will recieve a 20K bonus for 2007 (so it is possible). The car choices are Chrysler 300, Jeep Liberty, and Dodge Magnum ( I think the Magnum is the 3rd choice, but not positive). This is a good job, my manager is GREAT, and does not micromanage. They do expect results, if you are below 100%, you will be put on a performance plan. Sonicare is really well recieved in offices, and its not a hard product to sell. The hardest part is getting access to the RDH or DMD, but once you can set a Lunch with them, its pretty easy to sell. Hope that answers all your questions. It really is a fun job. Every job has its downfalls, and so does this one, but the only one that really irritated me last year, they actually changed for this year (one of our goals) so I am happy. Most of the Regional Managers are great and as long as your perform and make your daily calls, you will be fine.

Why dont you keep reading and see that I said i make an additional 22K on top of that for hitting year end numbers. So make that 91K, thanks! Oh but I am sure you are making SO MUCH more, right. If you dont know what youre talking about, stay out of the conversation. Bottom line, You can make 90K your first year in this job. You obviously are stupid and think comp. plans never change, and as far as turnover, who knows, and who cares? As far as I know, we dont have much turnover, but like I said Ive only been here a year. We are adding a LOT of people but they are all for expansion territories, so thats a good thing, and we're not laying people off like alot of companies. All I know is I am making 90K+, my product is easy to sell, doctors love it, and I am happy.

"but like I said Ive only been here a year."
Lets see so you have only been here for a year and the reps who trained me had only one years worth of seniority, I am beginning to see a pattern. If its such a great job making 90k the first year then why the high turnover? Before you say it, the reps who trained me were not part of an expansion.

"I can make an additional 22K in bonus if I have overachieved in every bucket, which is actually possible. So bottom line is, it is possible and likely that one could make 90K plus in this job if they actually go to work and do their lunches. I think they said that about 25% of reps maxed out"

" I think they said that about 25% of reps maxed out"
so 75% of the reps didn't hit the 22k bonus and made less than 71k

Arms Re: Sonicare Sales Representative at Philips Medical

I am surprised at the number of incompetent people on this site. I am trying to be helpful and honest, and all you do is bash other people's jobs. NO 75% OF PEOPLE DID NOT MAKE 71K OR LESS, MOST OF THEM DIDNT MAX OUT BUT THEY STILL OVERPERFORMED SO THEY DID GET A YEAR END BONUS. On average reps probably made 80K this year, but there are those that made more and those that made less. So the range is anywhere from 70-90K. I dont know if you are 5 years old but you read one thing and interpret another. Get a life. Why are you so concerned with Sonicare, you dont even work here and obviously things have changed since you did.

You never responded to the fact that the company has such a high turnover. You have only been there for a year, the people who trained me had only been with the company for a year. If the job pays so well than why is there such a high turnover? I am sure that the Listerine reps make more than you do.

Lol Re: Sonicare Sales Representative at Philips Medical

I did answer that question - We have about 80 reps in the country now and I can only think of 4 people who have left the company in the year that I have been here. I did not replace anyone, I was put in a new territory/expansion. We just added about 15 people (all new territories) . So maybe the turnover that was high before was because the comp. plan wasnt that good. Now its better and they do pay if you perform so I think the retention rate is much better. And no, I am not drinking the koolaid, every company has problems, and nothing is perfect. But I do feel that Sonicare management treats us all fairly and everyone has the chance to overperform, the goals are challenging but still in reach. I am guessing that you left Sonicare and now work for a company that's a sinking ship. I wont name any names out of respect for you and your new company, but I think I know exactly who you are!

I thought the interview went great, very laid back DM and I felt awesome when I left...still I haven't heard back from him! (Are you secretly the DM?? And checking this forum out now?? )
He told me that he was planning to hire March 1st--territory is Georgia.
Do you work for the company or have any insight???

He seemed great..he told me that it was narrowed down to 7 people out of over 100 for the first round of interviews.
I interviewed with him on Jan 23rd (I think). Have you heard if someone has been hired for the territory? I sent him a thank you email---should I email him again?
I told him about this forum so maybe he is looking at it and sees my interest!! Ha ha!! I would love the opportunity to work for Philips!!!! Tell him!!

Smile Re: Sonicare Sales Representative at Philips Medical

A few different questions.

I am interviewing at Philips for the Sonicare position. I had a successful phone screen and 1st face-to-face interview. I am awaiting my second face-to-face.
I am curious as to the starting base salaries of those in the field (one poster says 55k, the phone screener said 52k, I am curious if there is room for negotiations.)
I am also curious how the bonuses have been going? The DM said approx 4k/quarter bonus and if you exceeded quota (120%) in every 'bucket' then you were eligible for another 20k or so in annual bonuses. He said he had one rep exceed 120 last year. Not sure if that was in 'all buckets' or not. So I am guessing at plan, average comp would be somewhere around 70k +/- Does that sound about right?
I'm not sure if you make any additional bonus if you are below the 120% (not sure if between 100-120% there is a year end bonus?)

I am also interviewing with pharma, and it seems their bases are a bit higher, with the same types of bonus, perhaps a little more. But it seems like there isn't that 'instant gratification' that goes with selling. This seems like a true sales job, versus a pharma non-transactional type of 'sell'.
What are your opinions of the two industries?
I have already received a couple offers. Do you happen to know how long the process is from initial interview to offer with Philips?

Thank you in advance!

Yo, don't even think about taking a pharma job over Sonicare. I probably have as much info about the pharma industry and Sonicare as anyone. Sonicare is a good gig and pharma is dying a slow death.............
If you need to take a pharma job, make sure it's with a small company - Big Pharma is not a good place to be !

Oh, ok I don't think we are interviewing for the same position then. Congrats!! I am still waiting to hear back about if I made it to the 2nd interview. How long after your first did you get called for the 2nd? And did they email you wanting you to do a credit background and drug testing etc? Just curious.....I want this position soooooo bad!!

Thumbs up Re: Sonicare Sales Representative at Philips Medical

One week from first face to face until I found out when the second face to face was. (One more week away) But as long as I do well with this face to face, it's my understanding that the last 'interview' is more just a seal of approval. They fly the final candidate in to meet the big boss and he gives his approval, but as far as I know, the hiring managers mind is made up after this second face-to-face. At least that's the way I took it. I did the paperwork for the background check/etc. before the first face-to-face if I remember correctly. (Sorry, I have been interviewing the last 2-3 weeks, so its all kind of running together.) I did a personality test for a couple different ones, but I can't remember if this one had one or not.

ok, I just looked back thru my email, looks like after my phone screen, the day before my first Face to face interview they sent the online application, so I did it that day and had the first interview the next day. Then I was contacted earlier this week about a 2nd face to face for early next week.

Good luck to you! What stage of the process are you at? I am kinda hoping the rest goes more quickly, because I have other offers on the table as well, and I need to make some decisions, get back with some folks, but I also want to know I'm making the best choice for me, and don't want to overlook any opportunities. . .

I was told pretty much of what poster #9 said regarding salary and bonus. I just finished my 1st F2F this week and was told I would be told about when my 2nd would be. I am anxious because I thought the 2nd was to be next week. Oh well, guess I just have to learn to be more patient. That's great you have other offers! I wish that was the case for me, I have nothing else lined up!!

Cool. Well best of luck to you. How large will your territory be? Mine will be pretty extensive. About a 150 circle around my home base, encompassing 2 states. That's pretty big, (that's actually been my territory for the last 4 years, but for the most part, I stay in my metro area, because there's enough business here to keep me busy.) So I have a feeling I'm going to rack up some miles! Happy to be getting a car rather than just an allowance.
Tell me about your first interview. What was the manager's style? Mine was pretty laid-back, asked the 'usual' interview questions, but was very thorough in answering my questions, which I appreciate. (sometimes in interviews, people answer you as though you've been doing the job as long as they have, which doesn't help to explain anything really. He was very good though.) What did you find most interesting? What did you find most disturbing? SORRY. I just want to see if I'm getting a TRUE feel for the job.

My interview went good, I felt. He said it would be a very laid back style, then when you come back for the 2nd F2F it would be more extensive. Asked the usual "tell me about yourself..." and talked alot about the job itself. Showed me the territory, not as big as yours that's for sure. Told me briefly about the training, just that it was 7 weeks, didn't get into start dates etc. Said as long as your "producing" he's hands off. Which is nice. We left it as someone would be contacting me about the second interview, it was to be at the same place with him again. It would be down to 3 or 4 candidates then meet with the VP if necessary. I know he covers 3 states in the southeast so we may be speaking of the same DM just we are interviewing for different areas. Good luck to you....PLEASE let me know how the format of the 2nd interview went and I will let you know if I moved onto the next round.
