    I have been working at WellCare full-time (More than a year)


    Many many many avenues for advancement for LPNS doors and salary are endless for RN's... Work from home option... Cafeteria on site... Parking garage.... Awesome staff to work with


    Management is disorganized but what cooperate office isn't... Especially in UM nurses aren't taught business so to have a bunch of nurses running it makes it a little difficult but totally worth it

    Negative Experience


    I applied online. I interviewed at WellCare.


    I had an initial phone interview with HR that seemed to go very well, and they set up a phone interview with the hiring manager for a few days later. I took time off work and rearranged my entire schedule so that I could be available for this phone interview. Come the day and time of the interview, no call. I called HR several times over the next few days and left messages, nothing in return. That's fine if they decided not to move forward with interviewing me, but have the common decency to let me know.
