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

    Pros

    you get a set schedule, so no last minute schedule changes (sometimes night shift was bumped to day shift for the holidays but you get plenty of notice ahead of time), pay is great $10/hr plus incentives, my first month on the floor I received 4th tier (the highest), training can be stressful for new timers but my trainer was a lot of fun and I made great friends in my training class, very easy to get orders since the patients already need the items anyways (you do have to reach minimum goals), good benefits, holiday pay, great food in the cafeteria, family environment, company picnics, I was really nervous at first but turns out I am natural on the phones and was very successful. The only reason I left was because I moved and the local center near my new place didn't have any openings. It was a great job.

    Cons

    Incredibly strict on attendance, calling out or leaving early is a write up (you can get up to 6 qrite ups a year before you get fired). management were nice but they tend to make you feel like an idiot for asking questions and can be very sarcastic (I worked here for 4 months so of course I would ask questions).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    teach your managers about positive reinforcement, of course constructive criticism should not be forgot but when an employee is doing well let them know!

    Pros

    It is a good company if you don't like to work in Hospitals.

    Cons

    Company do not take in consideration their employees, policies change every week to something different, and the company need to improve benefits to retain good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to change some policies and take back the good employees that worked for them before. Actually Lincare have a policy of not taking back people that worked for them in the past. THAT'S A MISTAKE!!!!!!

    Pros

    Chosen overtime, busy, easy-going, great pay for the experienced

    Cons

    lack of HARD workers, some people throw you under the bus to get somewhere, lack of communication but what job has everything? I guess I have worked crappier companies like WELLPOINT for many years and just love this job too much compared. I wouldn't give it up for nothing and I work in one of the busier centers. To the complainers, I am sure there is someone who is on unemployment who would love your job right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to everyone and not just your favorites. The seniors are not always right and typically not up to date.
