    work towards a goal that changes lives.

    Cons

    management is a joke and for some reason they think they are far superior to reps.

    Advice to Management

    too many managers that should be out in the field helping us make these out of reach numbers.

    Advice to Management

    For the first 2 months or so, I literally thought it was too good to be true, but then things started to change. The job had a 90 degree learning curve, yet within a couple of months I was expected to be able to do all of it (and there was WAY too much) perfectly and without assistance. When I expressed my concerns, I was told I was the problem and that the workload would only increase. Management gave mixed and unclear guidance regarding the tasks/assignments, and I could apparently never do anything right because of this. If I asked for clarification, I was met with irritation and told I should just know, yet when I made assumptions I would get disciplined and asked why I didn't seek clarification. I started going in early and staying late, as well as working weekends and holidays (and even my PTO birthday) to try and get everything done, but it was never enough. I literally stopped eating and sleeping in my attempts to please them in both quantity and quality, and it still wasn't enough. It reached a point where I had become incredibly depressed, anxious and unhappy all the time, and had lost over 10 pounds due to not eating, and I just had to get out. Honestly, I felt like 2 people could've been doing my job full-time and they would both be stressed out and overwhelmed. Please PLEASE, if you're thinking about applying or accepting a job offer from the AHA, please don't make your decision lightly, and read these reviews carefully before making up your mind.
