    I am a DME rep looking to get out of medical sales and into a more lucrative career of Pharmaceutical Sales. Any suggestions of which companies to work for??

    I would apply to IQVIA as they are hiring over 500 new Pharmaceutical Reps and pay very well.

    Well.... I found this!



    My suggestion would be to stay away from the CNPR. They have hundreds of fake jobs posted on Zip Recruiter and CareerBuilder under - CP Pharma, PRC Pharma, Health Plus, DMG-Health, Pharmville, Prism. Lynx and more. I bought this program based on several emails I received and then heard nothing from any company. All of these companies require "CNPR" but you cannot find any of them on the web. I started searching and found the links below. Then I noticed that NONE of these companies are advertising in Colorado. That's because this guy Brian Kennedy is running a scam and the Attorney General of Colorado nailed him. He was/is ordered to pay back all money received to anyone that purchased the CNPR or RMSR? program. They required $1 million from him just in Colorado to hold in trust to pay victims. I would suggest anyone that has purchased based on fake job postings or emails received to simply call and request your money!

    Attorney General - Cynthia Coffman or Jay Simonson at: 720-508-6203

    Intuitive (da vinci) has ALWAYS discriminated on age! If you had used a recruiter they would have told you to not even bother interviewing because they would never hire you. I can't believe they haven't been sued already (or maybe they have) because they don't even try to hide their discrimination.

    That was my experience with them also - blatant age discrimination.

    I spent 37 years in the industry most with one company but was run out of that organization after 27 years. I had one every management award the company had, consistently high appraisal’s. But at 55 found myself without a job. I was lucky to hook up with a couple of start up companies looking for experienced people to launch first time products. There is definitely age discrimination in the industry. Now if you want a position you need to know someone, possibly a colleague who you worked with previously to get hired, especially as you get over 50. It is an industry definitely catering to a younger workforce and does not value experience. Just look at LinkedIn and all the people who post their awards, the people I worked with over my career would never have done that. That’s because they knew that 80% of the success was being in the right place and the right time, not that you were some great rep or manager. The job is like a rollercoaster it comes with good years and bad years, good people and bad people. It is worse now than ever before. Glad I finally retired because it will suck the life out of you.

    Just relocated and was re-entering the job market when I was approached via email to fill out the profile and sign up for the webinar. So glad I read your posts. I will skip this as I don't need to waste time with this scam.

    Med device guys here. Saw a post yesterday on LinkedIn by a guy who was humble bragging about winning Presidents Club at his recent sales meeting. Good for him, but the humble brag is so over done and a turnoff - especially when your point is only about you and not the team around you. But the thing that really jumped out was that he posted a picture of the Rolex he was awarded along with the crystal trophy. Again - good for him, but patients, doctors/customers, and the general public really don’t want or need to see that. IMO it really gives a black eye to the industry and hard working reps, whether you’re in pharma or med device.

    So I don't recognize the names of anybody who's mentioned the previous e-mails, but I got an identical e-mail to the earlier ones posted just today, from a Mr. J. A. Trent. If you think it's too good to be true, it probably is.

    I fell for it, received this email and spent the money to take the Certification process, passed and they still send the same emails. Bogus company, I had a couple of phone interviews with legit Pharma companies and the hiring manager said he never heard of them and completing the course was not necessary to be hired. When they send the same email, I reply saying I completed the course and they do not reply back with job opportunities.
