Double dip

    The more time I double dip, the more I am sure it's the best thing to do (for me). Just a little bit of work and it's easily done. About 5 years ago, my biggest fear was getting caught by not being able to keep up with the work. But once I decided to give it an 8 week try, before I decided to let one job go, I found out it is very doable. Any fear I had is gone now, and I'm "entrenched" with both pharma company's. I'm NOT a superstar with either pharma company!

    It's easy to do....the hardest part is juggling meetings. I know I'll get caught eventually but in the meantime, I'm raking in the dough!

    How do you handle conflicting meeting dates? Besides going to the ER, what are some excuses that can be used?

    Luckily, for me there has been only two conflicts in meeting dates in the last 4 3/4 years of double dipping in pharma! I claimed illness, but I can use that excuse with my other company now. Vacation time, emergency leave, and family illness are all valid as well.
    Once for a Natl. Sales Meeting, I used an excuse of a non- refundable cruise to get out of the first couple of days of the meeting. Conflicts rarely happen. Once again, if push comes to shove, you lose one job, keep the other job, and look for another pharma replacement job.
    Hope some of this helps!

    This is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Sounds like a good idea until you get caught and get sued by two companies and face criminal and fraud charges. The all the money you just made goes bye bye as you pay a lawyer.

    When I get caught by two companies, get sued, and pay a lawyer, I promise to let you know! In the meantime, I'll continue what I've been doing for several years. It really isn't as difficult to do. Don't be so negative! Perhaps you should give it a try!

    If you want to try the double dip you can take the second job on a part time position. I do it and then there are no meeting conflicts because the part time job expects that you have conflicts, or they don't have meetings for part time reps, and in most cases they know you may have another job, or commitment. You can leave town for meetings with the full time company, or if you want to try on a company for size. I've been double dipping since 2006, and sometimes triple dipping, but that's pretty damn stressful to take it that far, but I wanted a hefty down payment on a house so did it for two months. It can be done.

    Great! I've been double dipping with 2 pharma jobs since 2008. Since my other pharma job involves completely different meds for completely different specialties, I've never been close to getting caught. And as I have suggested before, if I'm ever caught, I would lose only one job. One company would not know the other company I'm working for!

    I almost accepted a second pharma gig a couple weeks ago but I chickened out and turned down the offer. One concern I had was the medical insurance component. With obamacare everyone must have insurance. Would it be illegal to have 2 insurance plans?

    People turn down insurance because they are covered elsewhere All the time. Either through spouses or private. You do not have to accept both. Only one. Jeez

    Right. I double dip, but I have chosen to use my other pharma insurance to cover my family. It's a little less costly than Watson's, and has better drug coverage for us. HR may think we are covered by my spouse's insurance. Who cares?

    Thanks for the feedback. I have a few interviews scheduled and am so excited to double dip. One problem though. I really want to punch my current manager in the face, so if I do get an offer ill have a hard time not telling him to go f himself.

    Dipper here:


    Remember, if you "tell him off", you will probably lose this job, and then your opportunity to double dip is gone. It's better to get over on him by double dipping!

    I do it constantly too. I have been caught twice and fired. Once was fired for having crappy sales numbers and sending in food for a lunch that I didn't attend. POD rep told on me. The other one I was fired for I actually ran into a boss with a tiny division in the sales force. We never interacted with them. However, I was caught red handed and with my new manager that day. I freaked out thinking "great ....now I will be fired from both jobs". I wasn't though. Just the old job fired me the very next day. It was so embarrassing. The new company never founnd out, and I worked there for a few years. Regardless, I continue to do it. I have learned that getting fired isn't a bad thing. All it means is the 2nd paycheck ends. I never put both jobs on my resume: I just put the higher paid one. I'll probably do it until I retire. The way companies downsize, they are used to seeing multiple jobs and gaps in employment anyway. My only fear is both companies finding out and losing both incomes.
