    Pros

    work is autonomous, create your route schedules, schedule your own vehicle services as needed, helping with your work schedule.

    Cons

    bonus levels are virtually unattainable, lower management is lacking, upper management "hears" nothing at the Center level. No feedback on upward mobility when requested - no chances to accel. Very poor Customer Service when listening to area clients and doing other routes and stops.

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It was a job so that I could pay bills

    Cons

    Asked to do illegal tasks on a regular basis; could only complete job within a 12 hour day by doing things illegally; management would throw under a bus if it could;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time

    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.

    Not a career move

    I have been working at Lincare Holdings

    Pros

    You get to learn about insurances with regard to how they work and what services and equipment they cover. Also, you quickly learn the difference between good and bad health insurance as some cannot be accepted for our business. Also for future knowledge you learn that all these companies really want is your money so be sure you actually need the medication.

    Cons

    One major point I feel is unfair is that only the drivers get random drug test which I have yet to experience but still the fact of working with people who could be under the influence of something that could make me lose my job is just not right. You are not appreciated for your work your expected to do it no matter how above and beyone you go it just becomes an expected performance of you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct better training on how each employee can sympathize with others in the office with all the hard work they do and the stress they take on a daily basis. Also, teach all employees especially drivers how to deal with the passing of a patient as it pertains to family members who we have to see to pick up our equipment.

    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.

    My father was taken care of this company in another state and the service was top notched..

    Low pay and staff turn over makes hard to win doctors and hospitals back when they had problems.

    Pay people a wage that they can live on. You spend so much time and money on fantastic training...you should want to keep these people.
