what are docs saying about their re-energized marketing approach to urine testing?
Opinion is that Ameritox is trying far too hard and has become very aggressive (almost to the point of making us Docs uncomfortable).
Not to mention some of the questionable tactics they are using to get accounts. Remember, the office is just as liable as the lab if laws are broken/ignored. I wouldn't want to spend my own $ on legal fees or fines.
I've heard the company is pushing their sales force to unreasonable limits. Any thoughts/comments on working for this company?
I too, would be interested to hear what experience any of you have had with Ameritox. I was contacted by a recruiter and f2f is tomorrow. My brother is a pain specialist and anasthesiologist, I have asked his opinion on this as well.
Thanks for any info.
Very good company, moved over here about 5 months ago and spent most of my career at J&J on the pain management side. Very different than pharma, in a good way, and compensation is much better than pharma.
Manage by fear and are quick to fire. Very aggressive with Docs and a lot of pressure is put on there reps. Think twice!
Miss leads about territory, commissions are not what they promise.
Join the club. This sounds like Phadia.
Had a F2F yesterday. Claim sales force expansion? I was also wondering how it is to work with the company? Are the they growing the way they say they are? I have been with Big-pharma for a great number of years and I am hoping this is a good move. Do the doctors receive the idea as a benefit or are they afraid of losing their patients? Ameritox post big commissions. Very good compensation package also. Claim managing growth is the issue? Any feedback would be great.
Good questions...I'm hoping someone responds. I'm interviewing very soon too-what can you tell me about your experience so far?
Thanks for the help!
This industry is in an expanding mode. I talked to some managers at AIT labs and they are growing at a fast pace. It is all about cover your ass testing. Dr's don't want to be sued for patients abusing medicine.
The worst experience I have ever had at a company. I'm not sure if you would call it a growing company or a company that is constantly replacing employees, do to turn over.
A lot of pressure and a lot of empty promises.
The person above must not have been making their numbers....for a long time! Ameritox treats its employees with respect and they give you every opportunity to succeed. It is by far the best company I have ever worked for!
In most organizations the cream rises to the top; at Ameritox @*&# floats. Was once a decent place to work when the founder was still active in the company. He left and took the heart of the company with him.
I'm employed by Ameritox as well and I couldn't be happier. It's a young company that is on the rise and ahead of the curve. Urine screening will be standard for all chronic pain patients. All of the docs that are on board are one step ahead. They love the reports, provided their sales and field ops representatives give the office the attention it needs. Customer service, support from management, professionalism... you name it... Ameritox is where it's at... Like the above poster said - don't be so bitter because you didn't do your job. With an attitude like that, you are probably stuck working as a collector somewhere in middle America... Best of luck to you.
ameritox is where it's at I seriously laughed out loud when reading that thanks so much! you sound as retarded as BL trust me young one not bitter...I couldn't be happier now that I work for a real company not one owned by Sterling! so good luck to you too
No, actually I went with a competitor where I am not required to drink Cool-Aide every day. Wow, are you attempting to present to an MD for the first time? Oh by the way, you don't have to sell auto-reminder at lunch tomorrow, the account switched over to my company.
The absolute worse company you could ever work for. No leadership, turnover rate over 50%, high pressure. I Wouldn't wish this place on my worse enemy!
Ameritox does not recognize seasoned sales speciality sales representatives that have built their kingdom and treat employees like children with a ton of new reports over e-mail to be completed intwo days-thus you are at home on your cell phone gathering ridiculous information for their management reports-thus you cannot be interactive with new clients or getting new ones.
The loyal sales representatives that built Ameritox have either moved on, been terminitated b/c of some 30 day performance improvement program, or saw the hand-writing on the wall that their territory had been decreased to nothing with no potential for new accounts based on their opiate sales data from the 1990s and left. Word has it that Milenium, Calloway, AIT, and Dommion are taking accounts right and left from Ameritox and Encelmo won't be able to overcome Sterling's pressure for unachievable goals for each territory. The turnover is HUGE. And thus it should be since Ameritox treats their employee's like depository-slaves.
