Former Pharmaceutical Sales Representative at Eli Lilly and Company
almost 2 years ago
A typical day for a Pharmaceutical Sales Rep at Eli Lilly typically starts with the rep going over their planned calls and responding to emails from the previous day. It is recommended that the rep organizes the marketing material for each provider (doctor/nurse practitioner) so that your targeted messaging is easily attained. Then, the rep should gather their samples for the day, ensuring that they keep an accurate count of the samples due to their highly regulated nature. Once marketing material and samples are secured and organized, the rep is expected to spend most of their day make 8-12 calls per day (depended on the size of the territory and manager expectations. Leadership was expecting about 3-4 lunch meetings per week.
