sa Unilab, ang alam ko, 5 years max sa isang territory except if youve already established yourself there, meaning may property or family ka na na naka-base doon... iwas lang sa over-familiarity sa teritoryo kasi mas marami daw nagagawang modus pag ganun... like us, we were assigned in cebu for 6 yrs, pero hubby handled cebu for 4yrs and bohol for 2 yrs... we made a conscious decision not to buy any property doon kasi ayaw namin magtagal sa province... until na-assign na kami dito sa manila, and now lang kami nag-acquire ng property... nakailang lipat na rin ng territory si hubby ko, pero the farthest is north luzon so madali pa ring umuwi pag weekends...

about sa assignment naman. how long naman maaassign yung rep sa isang place (province)? may chance din bang ma-assign sa ibang country yung rep?

i think most pharmas opt to hire natives of the country where they have offices... mas mura kasi kesa magpadala ng rep dun and provide allowances.. mga higher bosses lang yata ang napapadala sa out of the country 'permanent' assignment...
If you can't keep your Integrity ONLINE, what does that say about the person you are OFFLINE?...

I think takeda is still looking for other applicants, kasi diba sabi nila wala pa sched kasi ikaw pa lang naiinterview. ayun. pagisipan mo sis if good deal naman yung sa isa then grab it na, mahirap maging masyadong choosy sa work. you might end up losing everything in the end. pero it's up to you pa din kung gusto mo talaga sa takeda. based on my experience kasi may ginrab ko muna yung offer nung di ko masyadong gustong company then after I got hired don sa gusto ko saka ko nagfile ng resignation don sa current employer ko, just make sure to have a graceful exit sis para maganda record. :) Goodluck!

oo nga sis im worried din kase if i wait pa for takeda eh sayang ang oras. they didnt give me any idea how long ako may wait i really want to get in takeda kaso wrong timing sila. yun din sabi nung friend ko kase pantay naman sila nang sweldo nung nakuha ko na isang job so yun muna then after takeda calls pag maasa ko mga interviews saka ako lipat feeling ko nga next year pa yun.

hi Tifay! buti ka pa sis.. I applied din at Takeda.. last october 6.. nagwalk in lang ako.. someone from hr interviewed me naman right away and ok naman interview. or so i thought :( didnt hear from them kasi. kala ko pa naman ok na kasi the interview went well talaga. hay. sabi wait daw ako ng call or text. la pa din its been two weeks na so i guess wala na yun... moving on..hay.

mga sis.. i really want to have a career as med rep.. i've applied to so many companies na pero til now la pa din balita.. actually i applied lang last october 6.. nag submit ako sa pfizer, takeda, merck, sanofi and novartis.. lahat hiring naman except for merck. tapos nagsubmit na din ako thru email sa lilly, bayer, servier.. lilly is hiring pero hindi ata yung bayer and servier..

anyway, mga sis pls help naman.. WHAT IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY OF APPLYING AS MED REP? kasi lahat na ginawa ko. online and walk in (though sa walk in takeda lang naginterview sakin.. sa iba kasi hnggang guard lang ako).. tska pansin ko, pag may kilala sa loob ng company yun ang talagang tinetext nila kagad... yung kilala nga ng friend ko na med rep, magreresign na dun sa company nya kc dadalin sha sa bacolod e ayaw nya, so yun resign nalang tpos nung nalaman nung mga reps from other companies na ka area nya, sinabi ngayon sa hr nila tapos wala shang ka malay malay, pinagtetext na sha ng ibang mga companies for interview agad. ang daya diba?  :-[ anyway i know plus pag may experience kana as med rep before pero pag may kilala i think mas ok kasi they will invite you for an interview talaga with or without experience.. pero pag mag isa lang nagaapply, ang hirap grabe...

pls help naman mga sis.. ano bng dapat kng gawin.. btw, RN ako.. bt d ko na nilagay sa resume ko na RN ako kc bka d ako lalo tnggapin dahil isipin nila d ako magtatagal etc.. pero gsto ko talaga mag med rep.. ang haba na ng post ko im sorry... nkaka frustrate lang talaga... :'( thanks sa mga magrereply..

tsaka usually po ba gano katagal bago mag hire mga pharma companies?  pati makareceive ng text mga short listed candidates? thanks po

true yan sis. yung classmate ko nung college nakapasok agad as medrep kahit tourism grad sya. yung sister nya kasi medrep din from another pharma company and may kilala dun sa loob ng isang pharma company where she (my classmate) worked.

nako sis ako din i didnt expect na tatawagan ako kase mga kasama ko puro may working exp na ako lang wala. as in 2yrs na ako vacant no work at all. nun oct 4 ako nag apply sis then tawag sila after a week lampas 1 week nga eh then nag exam na ako then nung tuesday i had may panel interview (after 2 weeks of waiting)and i realized na ako nga lang ang nakuha nila nung hiring sila kase ako lang din nag exam nun sabi kase nung hr before di rin maka gawa ng sked for panel coz ako palang. then lahat nung kasama ko nung tuesday was from a job fair nung monday and 9 lang kami. lucky man ako but i really cant wait na napaka slow kase nang process nila sis need ko na work may final interview pa if ever di ko din alam how long pa yun bago ma sked hehe and im not sure pa if tangap na ako but this time. 1st job ko kase if ever so i have no idea ano ang process pag nga apply...and sis same tayo nursing grad but not RN pa ako.
may bumabagsak pa ba sa panel interview?im not sure kase what to expect.

Hi! I'm working as a medrep in a local company. One year na din ako.
Actually totoo yung sinabi ng isang sis natin na napakafrustrating magapply if walk in or thru on line application since super salang sala lahat lalo na sa mga multinational company. Dati nagtry ako on-line sa Glaxo but then hanggang 3 interview lang ako. Nagkaron ako ng friend na medrep from Mead johnson and talagang tinitimbrihan niya ko once na may hiring. She refered me to Abbott, for training nako kaso nagkaron ng integration with solvay so nahold yung training. Syempre nalungkot talaga ko but blessing in disguise din kasi nagkaron ng opening sa Mead johnson and nag-apply ako ulit. Luckily nakapasa sa series interview and exams. Tomorrow for medical nako. Training na lang kelangan ko bunuin! Good luck!
Masarap maging MedRep. Akala ng iba madali lang and petiks pero yung totoo toxic, pagod, habol benta pero very fulfilling din and rewarding lalo na if your masipag and in a good company.
