Medical Supply Sales Representative (Former Employee), Tavares, FL – September 4, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: under constant stress of being let go, terrible upper management in my area, high and unrealistic expectations of new hires.
They train you and expect immediate results. I busted my butt and aced their 2 week training class with hard work, very stressful 2 weeks, and was let go 9 months later for not providing quick enough results. The 2 weeks of extensive and detailed training costs Lincare about 15K per employee. To train a new rep and then let them go less than a year – more... later is a major flaw in their company not to mention waste of money. They waste their time and the new hires time. – less
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Cincinnati, Ohio – September 3, 2014
Pros: stablility, work independently
Cons: pay could be better, on-call
A steady job with a lot of responsibilities. You have to learn to communicate and handle things as the unexpected arises. I had no problems with management. As long as you did your job and showed up to work, everything was good. The co-workers were always willing to lend a helping hand. The hardest part of the job was how the hours, especially when – more... I was on call, could be long. The most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction of supplying a service to someone in need and all of the positive relationships. – less
Purchasing Coordinator/Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VA – September 3, 2014
I enjoyed working there until new management came in and then things went down hill from there. I think Lincare is a good company but they needed to listen to what both sides have to say and not just take the managers word.

Pros: upward mobility for the forty and under, good benefits
Cons: senior management not in touch with real time, works off of inaccurate or outdated reports. antiquated systems
Lincare is a national home respiratory & DME company. They are a goal focused highly demanding company. With that being said this is not the company to apply to if you are not motivated and goal driven, you will not make it.

A typical day would be pulling patients medication orders and filling to have them ready for the pharmacist to check, and we pack them to be ship for delivery. Majority of my co-workers were lazy. The most enjoyable part of the job was closing the last tote.

My work day began at 8am on Monday mornings we had monday morning meeting after which I would gather my materials and equipment needed to go out and see my patients. I had to see 6-8 patients a day and document in the computer on each visit. Along with managing patient accounts most office duties were shared. Answering phones, stocking shelves, delivering – more... equipment to the hospital,and assisting walk-ins. This fast pace environment taught me to how to prioritize tasks and manage my time. The hardest aspect of the job was the volume of orders the office received a day. My co-workers and I often had to work late and take weekend call. These difficulties taught me how important team work Communicating with your co-workers was very important. The most enjoyable part of my job was the relationship with my co-workers and supervisor. They were a great team to work with. I was employed there for two years. I had to relocate to New Jersey and left Lincare in good standing. – less

Most enjoyable part of my job was that it was a challenge and I felt accomplished when I saw the results of the hard work of myself and my team. – less
