    Hey Guys can someone out there provide me some information.. I got a call from a recruiter about the Northern California DM position for Upper Extremity. Recruiter told me that this territory is one of the top producing territories in the company but when I asked why it was open the recruiter was very vague. Can anyone shed some light on why this position is available if its such a great territory? Can anyone shed some light on the manager or anything else i need to know? Word on the street is that alot of people are leaving this company right now but the $$$ was pretty good in what the recruiter is telling me. The two are not adding up so I am trying to get some clarification. Anything anyone can share with me or provide me would be very helpful.
    Thanks!

    The company is excellent to work for! I am a DM and love it! Yes we have had a few underqualified reps and DM's leave lately but we didnt want or need them. As for the position you are asking about yes it is I beleive either the 2nd or 3rd ranked territory in the country. It had nothing to do with the DM it had everything to do with the ASD and the training that the reps received. The DM was not qualified to cover complex shoulder cases so we moved on from him but if you are clinically solid you would be walking into a gold mine situation if you are lucky enough to get the position. I can tell you we are one of the top companies in our field so you would be promoting top of the line products and I can also tell you the comp plan is probably the best in the industry. Upper managment cares about our success and we have full supoport from the CEO to the President to every other member of senior management.
    Its a terrific opportunity if you can get the offer. Good luck! Hope you are lucky enough to come aboard.

    To the jackass that posted above you need to get some of your facts straight! You say the success was because of the ASD and training? As far as I know the ASD has only been there a few months so how is that possible? You say we moved away from the previous DM? You didn't move away from him he quit! No the territory wasn't second or third you idiot it was number 1 and yes the DM quit. What does that tell you? I don't know how good he was at covering cases because I never worked with him but he was good enough to have the territory ranked number 1. Yes I am sure the training helped some but every rep gets the training not just his reps. Finally I hope whomever is interviewing for that open position realizes that it's not the entire territory you are interviewing for? You are only interviewing for a significantly reduced territory and from what I understand is why the previous DM left was because he was pissed off that the company was taking his number one territory away from him and giving him a significantly reduced portion of his territory that he made number 1 without any guarantees or overrides for what he had built. Company is willing to give a new hire a guarantee for this territory but wasn't willing to give the DM that built the number one territory any kind of a guarantee for this exact same reduced territory that they would give a new hire a guarantee too. Doesn't make any sense and is crazy! Not saying to whomever is interviewing for this position shouldn't take the job but you should at least be aware of all the facts. Most importantly make sure you ask exactly what territory you are interviewing for.

    If you are desperate take the guarantee and look for a better job for the 6 months. If not then you should run for the hills.

    Well I've asked around and can't find anyone that has a positive thing to say about this company culture. Products sound great. Is it true a DM recently quit to become a hockey coach? Seems like a mess from the top down.
