Learn more at, or follow us on Twitter @Ethicon.

Ethicon Sales Training Representative (STR) Program is a 14-month program designed to provide the necessary development for a career in the competitive and rewarding medical device industry. During your time in headquarters, you will have the opportunity to learn from the best sales representatives in the field as well as build connections across multiple sectors in the Ethicon office. When successfully completed, the STR Program leads to an Associate Sales Representative (ASR) role and subsequent leadership responsibility within Johnson & Johnson.  The STR Program is focused on building the skills necessary to drive business growth through learning and executing training programs (live and virtual) through blended learning.


Additionally, as a member of the Commercial Education team, the STR will provide support and expertise through field training, account conversions, engagement with key customers at professional education events, as well as support other ongoing customer engagement activities.


The STR will learn to provide education and training regarding Ethicon's key platforms including wound closure, endo-mechanical, energy, and biosurgery.  The STR will quickly become an extension of the collaborative Field Sales Organization.  Pivotal to success will be the ability to develop the clinical and business acumen necessary to meet the needs of our customers and Field Sales Organization training needs, while exceeding business objectives.

After the initial 14-month development program period, and with demonstrated proficiency to work within the STR role, the STR must relocate (with company relocation assistance) to the hiring region for the transition to the Associate Sales Representative role.  As an ASR, you will be required to be aligned for up to 12 additional months and begin to support customers by working with and under the guidance of the local sales team.  Following successful completion of the ASR role, promotion to Sales Representative may include an additional relocation within the region.
