    I am interviewing with them. Have 3 years of Pharma experience, looking for a change.

    What can I expect with regards to salary/commission/vacation/car?

    How has the response been to ViziLite? What other products do you sell?

    Any info would be extremely helpful...thanks!

    Zila is struggling right now they have lost 60 of their reps since May 07 (no joke) I'm one of them. If you have any other offers - consider them instead.
    But if you must, here's the scoop.
    $40 k base salary, $400 car allowance, 2% 401k match after 1 yr., 4% commisson (but the thresh hold eats all of that up) so expect to make $40k.

    The products are awesome though.. so at least you have that.
    Good Luck!

    40k?? That's ridiculous! I was making more than that in 2001! Do they mostly recruit at high schools? Who the hell would take that job?

    You never believe what a hiring manager tells you. If she is telling you the truth then she needs to provide some back up, paystubs with names blacked out, commission statements with names blacked out. Most helpful I would ask to speak to other reps to get their take. Ask those reps, for other names of reps since the hiring manager is most likely only going to give you names of friendly reps. Anyone who would accept a sales job in dental with a base salary of only $40K is making a huge mistake. Even if you made decent commission, which you won't at this company, the base needs to be $55-65 to comporable to the industry. If you take the job and after a few months find yourself on the street your resume and prospects of finding another job quickly is greatly diminished. Think hard about this decision. There are a lot of dental jobs that pay more, and in time you will land a better one, don't settle for below undustry pay. Don't settle unless you are desparate for money and they are about to foreclose on your house or something. Otherwise wait. There is a reason why this company doesn't want to pay you what you are worth.

    The reason the company doesn't want to pay you is that they only have enough cash flow to continue operations for about 6 months.

    This company sucks! Run! Run!!!!!
    Ask them if all there reps are on the same bonus structure, 'cause they will tell you not to speak of your commissions or pay with other reps because they are screwing everyone! Shitty company.

    I work for Zila and would not recommend the company. They are going through a hard time. They have no $$ which mean no commissions.

    Don't work for this company!!!!! What everyone wrote is 100% accurate. Company has no money, the training sucks, they raise goals by 20-30% each quarter which is just another way to screw the reps out of money. The VP is an idiot and thinks every chick wants him. Take my advice you'd be better off working for McDonalds, at least there you would have job stability.

    a former employee spending time on the job board bashing the former company and making personal attacks on people. Wow, you would think the person would move on and enjoy life and their career.

    wheeww! that is a big accusation! so, since the accusation is so big, you should throw the assholes who are involved under the bus as well...this way, if these assholes involved are no longer w/zila, their potential or new employers may find this here and re-evaluate their candidates ethics and moral...because if you are that sleezy that you are sleeping around w/the executive of the company because you think it might get you somewhere, everyone should know about it!! Because obviously you don't have class anyway...so you wouldn't mind who knows....so, let's hear it!!

    Wheew! those are some big accusations....so, since you are throwing the VP under the bus,(not sure if you are a disgruntled ex employee) but that doesn't matter you should go ahead and throw those involved under the bus too....let's hear what it is that you swear on your life?

    Unprofessional sleezy people get what they have coming to them, and if that is a display of their lack of ethics and moral on a public board like this- then let's hear it!
