Will depend on the company and full role: A while back, I was in the 70's. Could be more. I would say that your starting/minimum ask is at least what you are making now....plus you get the perks like company car, possible home office allowance, internet allowance etc....neonlily wrote: ↑Mar 19th, 2015 12:09 pmQuestion for you, I've only been an MLT for a year and I've been recruited a few times already to work as a Technical Specialist (which I turned down) for two different companies. I'm not close to many people in those types of jobs so I was wondering what your ballpark pay is? I'm having a tough time leaving a stable hospital position to an unknown.
There is normally a bonus plan which will depend on either national or regional performance...
There is often a bonus for "add assays" i.e. Convince the customer to convert from competitor product to yours and have it implemented and you earn $$...keep in mind the sales rep is doing all the pricing/negotiating.
In the end, the biggest decision is that for some companies there will be a lot of travel. While this can seem exciting, it is a major drain...and when companies lose TAS back to the lab this is normally the reason. Because of my product lines, I often had a national role, so I aways approached (though never reached) super elite, was platinum with a few hotel....we funded world wide vacations with all the points.
For me it was a great first step in to the company...and have jumped to many different positions since.
