PharmaGen USA Reports & Reviews (4)
I've experience the exact situation as the three other claims below.
Is a total scam to only end-up asking you to enroll in the https://www.napsronline.org/ web site and spend the $250+ to get a Pharmaceutical Sales Training Certification which, indeed, I found out is totally useless and not recognized by any major laboratory.
When I further investigated the scammers web sites like www.pharmagen-usa.com and http://www.circlehealthcaregroup.com/ it became obvious that his is some sort of home-based one-guy operation with an extremely poor and low-budget corporate web page that will be impossible to be considered as a legit and for a successful business when not a single picture of a Customer Member nor a local phone number (much less a local address) shows up!
Stay away from this scam!
I receive the same email as user above indicated. The funny thing is I have not applied to that company at all I got the email below from them.

Type of a scam Employment
The email I received was very vague when detailing the job as a pharmaceutical sales representative. When clicking on the link to the company website, i was redirected to a website with no information- no products listed and all very general and vague. The recruiter never used a real name, just initials. When clicking on the linkedin link, it brought me to a person with no picture, same initials. When searching the company on linkedin, nothing appeared. I didn't proceed further.

Type of a scam Employment
This scam involves a recruiter website offering to hire you for pharmaceutical sales, only to require that you complete pharmaceutical sales training through their affiliate website, https://www.napsronline.org/. The cost of training is $250+.
The recruiter will have received your contact information from posting false pharmaceutical sales jobs on websites like Ziprecruiter.com.
Once a victim completes training (the program appears to provide legitimate pharmaceutical sales information, causing the user to actually complete it), the recruiter will no longer answer your calls and will never offer a job. Completing the training provides you with a certificate that is not valid for any pharmaceutical job, therefore causing you to waste your money and time.
I have received this scam from other past companies that the "recruiter" creates, such as "Full Circle Health", in which they ask the same things in the email.
Their website never lists any address of the company location.
