Very challenging and fun workplace with many opportunities
Medical Representative (Former Employee), Osaka and Fukuoka, JapanMarch 28, 2014
Pros: benefits and income
Cons: long hours
I had been working at Astrazeneca Japan for seven years as a medical sales representative.
What I did everyday was not only meeting my clients like doctors.
My first job in a day started from visiting wholesale companies to communicate every sales men who had contract with my clients.
This everyday's communication with them makes my sales be comfortable. – more... After I got some recent informations about my clients, I prepared some documents or some data what they need that day.
During 10 am to 7 pm, I visited 13 doctors to give them our medicine's informations. Some times I talked with the doctor for one hour the about specific case that he had at the time.
Then I started my routine office work around 8 pm and prepared documents for next presentation at the hospital until 10 pm.

I learned to listen someone very carefully because most of their information gave me many ways to think about my clients's needs.
I also learned to be patient even though I could not get a good result as soon as I had done my action. Since I was a sales woman, I was under pressure of sales goal. I had to get over my goal every month. It was good experience for me. It absolutely made me strong.

Our management worked well in my team. I shared our goal with all of my co-workers and we had a meeting once a week regularly.We tried to solve everyone's problem by everyone's idea. It worked very well. Literally I was a leader at the meeting.

I got along with all of my co-workers. We had some drinks after our long work and encouraged each other.

The hardest part of the job is finding the way to make my client's medication be comfortable. When I found the way, my client and his patient and me, everyone got happiness. Such a wonderful time it was.

The most enjoyable part of the job was to achieve the goal with my co-workers. Thanks to good relationship with my co-workers, we achieved our goal so many times even it's very hard for us.

I would like to work as a responsible worker like I had been in Astrazeneca. – less

Process Operator (Former Employee), MacclesfieldFebruary 26, 2014
Whilst working for Astra Zeneca, I was on the night shift team helping to keep the line running as part of a 24 hour campaign. I would work with a small team on the lines to run the packing machines and maintain them to ensure smooth and constant running. This was sometimes very technical and I would be responsible to fix the machines if they had errors/failed – more... connections. Following the GMP guidelines, certain principles had to be adhered to such as ensuring a clean environment and all risk assessments were followed. Due to the Pharmaceutical nature of the business, there was no margin for error and each piece of written documentation had to be 100% correct which meant following a right first time attitude. – less
