    Idexx has some of the highest turnover in the industry! They treat their reps like garbage and all you have to do is look around to see how long each rep lasts for. They only want to sell equipment and then tell you not to help the customer again and to only go back when you want to sell them something else. The old owners of Idexx would freak if they saw what had become of their company. The managers are morons and know next to nothing. It's too bad cause the products are good. I am a distributor rep and I am now training my 5th Idexx rep in 7 years. WHy are they all quitting?? Don't work for them- you will be miserable!!

    IDEXX is manipulative, deceiving, and arrogant. They treat their employees like garbage. If considering a position there, do yourself a favor and don't bother. You won't be happy there.

    Idexx has no respect nor do they care about their employees. They will fire and eliminate employees at the drop of a hat. It is the most uncaring and unethical company i know of.

    Antech is just as bad if not worse. I rue the day I accepted the position with Antech. I feel bad for the vets...both comapnies suck. They have to pick whoever they think is the lesser of two evils. Both companies rip them off and bribe them...how the f is this actually considered sales? Nobody sells them anything.

    Antech and Idexx are both so arrogant it's sad that the customers have so few choices.

    BOTH companies suck HUGELY !!!! As a former Antech rep, I also regret taking the position about which I was lied to. The DM who hired me made the job seem as though it was real selling. Since I couldn't learn to BRIBE/LIE/ well enough I got 'terminated' due to lost revenue. Translation: The Idexx reps I competed against were better at the above characteristics, which both companies equate to ' selling.'

    In 26 years of selling for topnotch firms, I made a TERRIBLE career move taking the ANTECH position. I'm revinventing myself, going back to school (for a completely different career...yayyyy) and wishing I'd known about this site BEFORE I LEFT MY PREVIOUS JOB !!!! SHITSHITSHIT I would have learned so much more than the due diligance I performed researching the Antech job.

    SO IF YOU'RE INTERVIEWING FOR EITHER COMPANY....READ THESE POSTS ABOUT 10 TIMES UNTIL YOU GET IT INTO YOUR HEAD....

    DON'T TAKE THE JOB!!!!!

    This used to be a nice company to work for. It's horrendous how bad things have gotten over the past 3 years.
    Our former manager was demoted , and we now have an interim manager who is also the transportation supervisor. ( in charge of the couriers ) He knows NOTHING about any laboratory tests. He barely steps foot back in the lab. ( which is a good thing, he has no business being back there ) He is a complete bully, and curses, and badmouths employees.
    I cannot believe they left this man in charge until they find a new manager. Good grief.
    We need help in Florida, desperately.

    One manager Idexx has was one of the least respected sales reps for the lab and never left his house.And BRAGGED about it. But he can lie and manipulate like a champ so he is still there and was promoted to RM. The ethical reps have all left for the most part and I feel bad for the ones who are still stuck there. They push equipment out the door way before it's ready for mass consumption so they can report to their shareholders. RUN AWAY!!!

    Absolutely false! IDEXX has what I believe are the most patient, considerate and capable managers of any corporation. The people I worked for at IDEXX never treated me with disrespect, nor in any way made my employment there unpleasant. The structure of the management DID change regularly as conditions warranted, but the working conditions were never intolerable or unprofessional. IDEXX is a model company for employee relations, and they have strived to be an excellent company to work for.
