Hi, I am a victim of a pharma division shutting down. So, I was laid off 9 months. I have always been in top 5 or 10%. I have done other sales as well. I got hired by lets say, ABC Home Health (a bigger one) in October. My 90 day probation period is up in January. I was put in a new territory, and have already started getting referrals the first 30 days. They want 10 (lots of competition here) so they do know it takes time to build relationships first. I forgot to say I was with another home health for 6 months before this one and did quiite well, but I had a medical director who I was always with to get me referrals. I do not have him anymore obviously as he is with last company. There are 2 other reps with my current company- one here a year and one here 9 months. The latter took 4 months to get ANY referrals. She just got 5 last month. The other averages about 6... so, they have fired nurses and PT's as our "census" needs to be up. Well, all of a sudden, my driving sucks (rode with a supervisor and a rep and we had zero driving incidents). I did get called on by a citizen (as has everyone..some several times) because someone cut me off, I had to slam my brakes and car behind almost hit me. One of them called in. What can you do when your company name and fleet number is blazened all over your car? No atta boys for accessing hospitals and very important accounts in just 60 days, no kudos for referrals I have gotten, all I get is, I need to wear turtlenecks (I have been blessed) with my suits- very discriminatory... I dress in very good taste and as a pharma rep not once did a manager complain of my driving or my attire. ( I do not show my girls!) my ipad and phone quit receiving emails over the weekend and so on a Monday, before I even had a chance to see they were not working, I got chewed out for not having a working phone and computer! What?I It was working Friday at 5! So I called the IT people right away, it was a glitch on their end and voila fixed. So, I am apparently bad at calling to get it fixed, but hard to know it is not working when we do not usually receive any emails on the weekend, so until someone called to find out why I did not respond, how can I know? Then, I was shown "briefly" how to do a very complicated, time consuming expense report. I learn by doing it hands on. So first expense report, I was on my own and I made some easily fixed mistakes. Instead of "it's okay" it is something we all have to learn, it was "what was wrong with you?" Did you not pay attention when she showed you in less than 5 minutes how to do it? Geez! I had formal traiing at pharma co where we had dummy reports we did hands on. I still made mistakes on first one but no one yelled at me. I am now putting 2 and 2 together. I have received zero support. I am very positive and have been very confused as to why no one (especially if they have a problem with me) wants to help me do my job better. I think I am doing fine, especially for 2 months. I know they fired staff already for over hiring. This company has been around for years but only 1.5 years in this city. So there is no brand recognition. it is hard as I have 900 agencies in my territory. The other 2 reps have medical directors, and that is where almost all their referrals come from. I have no medical director, and trying to find one, with no help from my boss. she acts like she even cares if I get one. I have known this lady for my whole life. She is good friends with my Mom. That is one reason I got hired (also because of my very successful record) I cannot beleive how she is treating me when she has close ties to my family. So, my 90 days is up after Christmas. I suspect she is trying to find any little thing to write me up over to have documentation to get rid of me. I don't think it is because she doesn't like me. I think it is because they cannot pay me, (once again... census is lowest of all 20 branches) so she is making it personal to be able to cut ties. What recourse do I have? I am a single parent with no other support. If I get let go for "performance" or inability to do job" (which they are very aware I am doing both... just nitpicking) what do I do? Do I get unemployment? I think I am being very unfairly treated. Especially when other 2 reps did their expense reports on wrong days, didn't do PTO's right on Thanksgiving, have both been called on for driving (as has the clinic coordinator more than a few times). The director of ops pretends to go "marketing" so he can leave office for hours at a time and has no clue or answer to any of my questions. His job is not to market. He hasn't brought in a single referral and we all know he is full of crap. Why is his job not in trouble? It is really unfair. My boss told me last week "it looks like you know how to do your job" (just had a great lunch at a big hospital) no good job, etc. she told me to fix my boots (what?- change my dress- once again very professional) and said there were complaints on my driving. Hmmmm . I bet if I brought that up to supposed person I 'drove" with they would have a surprised look on their face. I drive carefully, especially with company name on car, and especially with a rep in car! Should I document everything? I have never worked in a hostile environment before. Just because they may shut down our branch in the future doesn't mean they have to be nasty to try and trip me up and get rid of me. They also told me I would lose my car if one more incident. I guess it is okay with everyone else (including one of the top directors) being called on. There are mean people who are unhappy that will call. No one else i know of has been threatened to have car taken away. I am so stressed. Merry Christmas to me. If anyone has an answer it will be greatly appreciated. I am super scared for me and my little girls.
