    I worked at Oscor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work I performed, I liked my fellow workers. It's a clean environment and the benefits were good.

    Cons

    There is a lack of training and follow up on progress of new employees. There is favoritism that affects the work flow between departments where "long term" managers have the clout to fool senior management (they know how to "game the system"). Initial pay is low with only the opportunity for a 3% annual raise for hourly staff. Slow employees are not reprimanded for low productivity and if their department manager has sufficient power within the company no one is held accountable including the manager. When management is weak within a department the staff within that department quickly becomes a scapegoat for other department shortcomings. Senior management appears to be living in an "Ivory Tower" and don't understand the dynamics or what happens on a daily basis within line staff positions that eventually affect the quality of the the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to create an "open door" policy for line staff to communicate issues of productivity and favoritism within the different department levels as middle management does not share the concerns of line staff garnered from department meetings designed for management to learn of internal issues. In short, middle management fears that sharing anything negative with senior management will shine a light on the negative situations of which they could have influence to change for the better; however, they don't possible out of concern for their own positions. Senior management believes in a system of management from the "top down" and "talks" about an environment of staff inclusiveness.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Oscor (Palm Harbor, FL).

    Interview

    The hiring process at Oscor is one of the most unprofessional I have ever experienced.
    It's principally about if you will fit in with the clique, and not largely about technical qualifications.

    Background check consists simply of a criminal check and a drug screen

    Negotiation

    Very easy.
    Offer, counter offer and acceptance.
