    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great experience in the medical field and learning the ins and outs of this type of sales.

    Cons

    Every office is ran differently. Your manager can basically choose your income potential by choosing what accts you get and what "qualifies" commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to oversee more of whats going on in the offices ---- especially how territories and commissions managed.

    I worked at Lincare Holdings

    Pros

    - Uncapped commissions (requires detailed follow up to actually get paid)
    - Flexible work schedule
    - Good Entry Level Sales Experience
    - Paid Holidays
    - Minimal Supervision

    Cons

    Territory placement can make or break you. This company mandates internal competition within their monopoly, so you are calling on the same accounts, selling the same services, the only true variance is where your center is located. Management is not supportive (starting at the center level and marching all the way up the corporate ladder), they demand results, but can not offer any feedback on solutions to obtain these goals. i came to my manager on multiple occasions to brainstorm on ways to improve my numbers, and the only advice he could ever give was, 'just get out there and sell".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take the time to not only train your employees but also continue to train and support them throughout their employment. An essential duty of management is to actually manage your employees, not just the business. Take the time to create positive relationships with them and work with them to constantly improve and become the best.
