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

Pros

Able to be out in the field working alone.

Cons

Takes forever for a sales rep to get their commission. No overtime pay but will ask you to run tanks to hospitals at 4:30 and push you pass 5, but will not have a on call person do it that makes over time. everyone makes overtime except sales. no communication between staff in whats going on, when documents are received that generates our commission, when orders come in or not. Take off, get docked, 8-5 daily. Rain, sleet, hail or snow you are expected to be in the field.

Advice to Management

Provide positive feedback vs looking at numbers all of the time. Yes it's a numbers game but meeting discussing strategies and different ideas would be positive.

    I worked at Lincare Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health insurance, Local people I worked with were dedicated and worked very hard as a team. Despite the District and Regional Managers poor skill set.

    Cons

    Very poor District Managers with absolutely no knowledge of the day to day operations of individual centers. Don;t have a Sales Rep, CSR or a driver. No problem let the center manager do it all. They are salaried so no overtime to pay. If the manager doesn't hit the unrealistic monthly goals fire them an get a new one. That is the basic Lincare policy. You must hit your goals regardless of the of circumstance. Computer technology is archaic AS400 is a joke. Must have been designed by the people Microsoft fired.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. IF 90% of a District Managers center staff are looking for a new job. (Any Job) It might not be the staff. It might be the the upper management.

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

    Pros

    Good sales experience, potential for fun friendly clients if you really get to know your accounts

    Cons

    Everything the base is very, very low compared to other companies, the gas mileage reimbursement, management from the top to the bottom of the company, the rollover at the center level including all the sales reps and managers!, the dysfunctional management staff, overwhelmed centers due to too many patients they are not taken care of as well as they should due to over worked staff, the company just got bought out by Linde Company, the weekends on call for no extra pay, went through 4 other sales reps for the other sales position at my center in 2 years. Territory manager overwhelmed and not motivated.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so controlling micromanger, you built your team up well and everyone left.
