    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are no good reasons to work there.

    Cons

    They are always under staffed. Upper management wants you to work every weekend without any additional pay. Drivers are also expected to work on call. The pay is horrible. They are also closing centers nationwide. Not a good company to work for. They don't care about their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company used to be great. Many many years ago. You have managed to make it hell for everyone that works there. Thank god I was able to get out when I did. Now happy to work for a company that cares.

    * Management is Mob-like with employee(s) to prepare reports, spreadsheets, watch others in driving fabricated tasks to produce the numbers
    * Lack of investment in training employees and quality assurance
    * Absence of company culture
    * No modernism, No alliance, No growth, No respect, No integrity... (5 Lincare Holdings "values")

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

    Pros

    Customers and referrals, that's about it

    Cons

    Management is corrupt, rigid and inflexible. Dan Vasilj has no clue what true leadership is. Leadership is action not a position! The company makes center level decisions based on numbers from a spread sheet. they have no clue what it is to work at the center level and make it work. I would LOVE to see Dan or Greg work a center for 3 months, short handed. (most Lincare centers operate short handed) Lincare takes advantages of their good employees. Over time in many cases was not an option, that adds up to a significant chunk of your life being taken away. Lincare makes for a pretty unhappy work situation, which in turn can make the rest of your life pretty miserable as well. lincare says they are the caring choice... BULLSNOT! The only thing lincare cares about is that almighty dollar. We never had the proper equipment for our patients, at one time we were not even allowed to order tanks for our growing client base. There was very little, if any support from management, there was never any positive feedback, communication was non existent ( unless they thought you screwed up), employees overall were unhappy, and miserable to say the least. Decisions are made at the highest level possible Regardless of what it is, you have to check with your boss before doing it.He or She also has to check with there bosses. In the dysfunctional world of Lincare you may have responsibility, but the authority lives in a office in Spokane Washington, you might be " labeled" a center manager but really your just a glorified CSR who gets paid just a little bit more. In reality it's not worth it, your health and family are more important. lincare will continue to lose talented employees...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest time in your center... See what it's really like running an office in 2014. Address your integrity, and values...

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I did three interviews with them and each one was very professionally conducted.. It was only after accepting the job that you get treated like a puppy who peed on the rug. The benefits are above average, and on the surface it sounds like you're serving the public in a good way. Then you discover drivers who aren't able to complete their routes and the customer calls you back upset.

    Cons

    Lincare has the strangest techniques for discussions with employees. The pay is extremely low considering your job duties. I also witnessed management make fun of someone with a disability and harass them about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some empathy classes!

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with elderly customers. most are the nicest people in the world. most of the people in the office are very competent and great to work with.

    Cons

    I was a service rep For the last year at the Hagerstown MD office after working at a printing company for 24 years. thought it would be a nice change .MISTAKE! 80+ hour weeks on call, no consideration for the safety of drivers. profit trumps everything. including common sense. A center manager that comes in late a lot ,even late for her own meeting .Spends her day playing on her phone, painting her fingernails, go's out during day to get hair done and for tanning, and tells us its none of our business, leaves before anyone else .After a year I still don't know what she does. Got fired last week for shouting at her, sorry it ended that way . but not sorry I don't work there anymore, relief.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start reading your own reviews. get your head out of the sand, people aren't happy. I'm the 7th or 8th driver in my slot in the last three or four years . And come out your offices and see what your managers are doing while their employees are busting their butts. Also I was a LOX driver ,one customers delivery is up 3 flights of stairs, these tanks weigh 140lbs this needs to stop ! It's to hard on the drivers.

    Hire more employees so the Service Reps don't get burnt out. Pay for all hours worked. Reimburse Expenses.

    Pros

    No checks bounced. I added these words after "bounced" to meet the five word minimum.

    Cons

    100 percent profit motivated. Patient care and employee concerns are ALMOST non-existent. Good people at centers. Managers outside of the centers are ruthless and I mean ruthless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Myself and others have tried, to make you change in every way ,up to and including resignation. Nothing will help.

    Pros

    the pay and all the overtime you want

    Cons

    work never ends, management is horrible, a few hours of training and you are left to defend for yourself, micro-manage, rule are make up on a day to day bases, asking for help forget about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    not to have favoritism because you like them, learn the job that you hire people for, and take a management class to help with those who have never managed anything in their entire life.

    Center manager

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Lincare Holdings

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck that you can out on. There are some good people that work at this company. Good life insurance policy.

    Cons

    Upper management is terrible and they expect way too much from one person. No one stays at this company, unless they are upper management. Center runs with bare minimum staff. Bonus pay is always not given for any excuse they can find. The numbers are manipulated, so you can't get bonus. Do not work for this company unless you are wanting a stepping stone to another company. There is no training for managers. You are thrown in there and expected to figure it out on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about what your enters have to say and the issues they are having. Spend some time in the centers and actually listen to the staff. Value your employees. Knowledge is valuable. Training a new person is expensive. Make this a positive place to work. Reward staff when they work hard.
