What is a job in pharmaceutical sales like?

I've been thinking about trying pharmaceutical sales after I graduate college in a few months and I'm looking for some information about the job. What exactly do you do on the job? What is the schedule like? Do you like your job? I'm not looking for sarcastic answers that tell me to bribe people with free lunch...I'm looking for some advice from somebody who actually works (or knows someone who works) in the field. I give 10 points :)

I've been a professional resume writer for 20 years and have written more resumes geared toward pharmaceutical sales than any other field, which means I have interviewed tons of people already in the business. It is extremely hard to get into, highly competitive, lots of pressure involved and has a high turnover/... More

I am sorry I do not have detailed information, but I do know this is a GREAT field to get into! My friend's mom has been doing it for years, and she is making bank. Also, I know it is a very competitive industry, so get as much "hands on" experience for your resume. Like internships, classes, etc. Good luck!
