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

    Pros

    Very rewarding job. Meeting new patients, setting up patients on oxygen, becoming friends with patients and family.

    Cons

    Just trying to get to everyone in the same day. Long hours for reasonable pay. Lots of training especially the driving training and learning where to go.

    Pros

    Helping patients in need has to be one of the greatest parts of the job. (Will list the cons to that below). If you get a good center, you know that anyone that makes it with lincare is a reliable and hard worker. If you can make it past the 6months - year that it really takes to get comfortable in your position, you can really get into a groove.

    Cons

    Patients (here it is) the ones you get that are phenomenal and make your job worth having are few and far in between but when I get a call that my 28 year old patient needs her oxygen picked up because she had a successful lung transplant, that helps me to believe that lincare is going to be a part of the success story that she tells. However, that said, work loads are extremely heavy. If you don't like working overtime and putting in more than your job description, this job is not for you. Lots of phone time, lots of problem solving (good thing and bad thing) and a ton of work. But if you like a challenge, this is the job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Better training. Staffing turnover wouldn't be the beast it is if you trained new employees in a close-by fully functioning center for a month before throwing them into a short-staffed center. A week or two is not enough.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are pretty good for our area. A person can make a great career for themselves in this company if they understand and can juggle a constantly changing environment. Employees must be flexible and ready to change direction at a moment's notice. It's challenging, but never monotonous. Attitude is everything! You must be willing to learn. Most of the job requirements cannot be learned from a manual. You must be self-motivated and seek out the answers through constant interaction with your peers and through research for you to succeed. You must understand and respect authority and follow their direction. If you constantly question or rebel against instructing, you will never be successful here. Realize you are paid you do a job, and find the most effective way to do that job. But if you're trying to bee a trail-blazer, this is not the right job for you. It's a very rewarding career opportunity if you understand your role and can perform well under pressure. It's a great opportunity for personal growth.

    Cons

    This company is not right for everyone. If you think too highly of yourself and can't learn from others as well as take it upon yourself you learn what others can't teach you, you will fail miserably.

    This is not an 8-5, M-F business. You must be willing to pull together as a team at any time to meet the needs of our patients.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest a much longer transition period than 2 weeks when one employee is leaving and training their replacement. That's a valuable tool for you so trading can be completed and not rushed. The preliminary FDA training, Hazmat training, equipment orientations, policy and procedures training, HIPAA training, etc, can take the first two weeks with little to no time to actually complete training for the unique position itself. That process could be better, and will make better employees with less frustration and less turnover.

    Pros

    Excellent training and local management. The freedom to earn as much as you want based on drive was a big plus.

    Cons

    Assistance from corporate in a timely manner when it came to marketing questions. Employee retention is a struggle based on commission payout structure.

    Pros

    It's such a fun and relaxed job. Great start to medical sales. Some business comes so easy.

    Cons

    Base pay and comission is much lower than the competition. Also, once you get the 'sale' you have to work hard again to get paid for it.

    Pros

    Lincare continues to evolve as an organization through improving the company's culture, enhancing technology, empowering managers and fostering collaboration.

    Cons

    Change management is a process and creates an opportunity for the development of "best practices", leadership development, and team development.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep open communication with all level of employees.

    They provided a lot of training on the job. It was challenging and rewarding at the same time. We worked in teams and individually alike. Everyone was very pleasant and easy to work with.

    45 hours per week requirement at a minimum. Staffing was low and there was a lot of turn over because many people could not grasp the job requirements.

    Advice to Management
