    Great company to work for

    Outbound Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Clearwater, FL

    Prosyou 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.

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

    Don't see what the complaints are about, but depeneds on your center

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)

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

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

    Overall, not a bad place to work

    Lincare Sales Representative (Former Employee)

    ProsAs a sales rep, if you hit your targets, you have a lot of autonomy. You also get a pretty good marketing budget. I think the commissions are pretty good.

    ConsCustomer service staff can be less than stellar, making it hard for your to follow up on what you promise to MD offices. Marketing dept materials are pretty lame.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind ways to promote/ retain good salespeople. I was very successful, but didn't want a Center Mgr or Area Mgr position, so they really had nothing else to offer me other than status quo.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
