Sales Representative Lincare Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Lincare Holdings in March 2010.
Interview Details – Had a very short phone interview and was asked to come in for a 1:1 interview. Saw all of the bad things posted about this company and they were right. The manager was nice enough but the pay was a joke. The office was nothing to write home about either. With 7 years sales experience they offered 24K. Unbelievable. No thank you!
Interview Question – Give an example of a time when you turned a negative situation into a positive situation? Answer Question

Sales Representative Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Lincare Holdings.
Interview Details – I found the interview process conducted by the Area Manager to be quite misleading as she promised wonderful commission and room for vertical career moves. This was a well oiled speech given to each and every person she interviewed as she just wanted to fill spots with quantity not qualtiy. The truth is commission structure is not all that great given the products they are currently trying to push. Traditional reps can make decent money but be wary if you interview for specialty divisions. Most center managers have integrity it seems so i don't have any issues with them as most will try to help you and push your case for late reimbursement, commission approval...etc.
Interview Question – Not a difficult interview, very standard run-of-the-mill questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation ability on salary no matter what your experience.

Interview Question – How would you handle it if a physician's office complained about the service for one of their patients? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Just find out when your commissions kick in. They wanted me to wait 90 days or something but I negotiated they should start as soon as I visit the office. I had to attend training, which I thought was very beneficial.
Center Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Lincare Holdings in October 2011.
Interview Details – Interview is one-on-one and they want to know about your work experience and what type of employee you will be. They ask questions to find out what kind of an employee you will be, so answer accordingly. Send a thank you card in or follow up with a thank you phone call. Dress to impress with business attire, NO JEANS!
