Center Manager (Current Employee) – Newport, OR – January 8, 2018
This is the lowest paid, patient focused job. Very little instruction and training offered for those with little medical experience. Their systems are outdated and difficult to navigate, time-consuming. Due to insurance changes, several patients are given very little information on what is necessary to qualify for supplies necessary and prescribed by the medical professionals, creating frustration and ineffective customer service.
Center Manager (Former Employee) – Ithaca, NY – January 11, 2018
Management is horrible, they treat you awful. No support, no help, no training. High demands with no staff or training. Abusive work environment. You are nothing but a body that they can replace, they do not care about employees.
Center Manager (Current Employee) – Marietta, GA – December 13, 2017
Company is so focused on numbers it didn't truly care about patient care. Upper management would not provide resources to facilitate the demand for patient need in regard for equipment. Lincare tries to buy other companies for market share regardless if the company takes a loss. In the process they expect the local center to clean up bad debt assumed through acquisition. Sales reps are ask to resolve issues outside of their scope. Corporate billing creates issues where the reps are not commissioned in a timely manner. Thus, the reps don't get paid.
Corporate looks at numbers while in the ivory tower, while not realizing what's actually needed in the valley (the local centers).
Center Manager (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – October 1, 2017
I managed an amazing team at this organization, however, the middle level and senior leadership we incredibly numbers drive- patients were numbers and that was it. Coming from a clinical background this was incredibly difficult for me and ethically as well. If you are sales driven and not clinically driven this for profit company is the company for you.
Center Manager (Former Employee) – Kentucky – August 2, 2017
Days can be very long with overtime required for all positions. Required to be on call and available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. People who work for the company are friendly and most get along very well.
Center Manager (Former Employee) – Cambridge, MN – July 17, 2017
I worked for Lincare for over 5 years. Started as a CSR and moved into a CM. Center Managers receive very little support and are expected to work 60-80 hours per week for very little pay. Managing staff with 10-20 hours of overtime each week is challenging. Turn over is constant and burn out is inevitable with their business model. Only the VERY dedicated stay over a year and mostly because they love the patients. Drink the cool aid and your fine, speak up and your sure to have compliance at your door.
Patients are amazing
Too much stress and job expectations are too high for little pay
Center Manager (Former Employee) – Colorado – April 25, 2017
And Colorado is the worst of the worst. Don't waste your time. The management will not stand behind you, especially the managers from other states. Poor training, terrible support. They will throw you under the bus and it's your problem.
CENTER MANAGER (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 24, 2017
I really enjoyed working with Hospitals, Assisted Livings, Nursing homes, rehab facilities and physician offices. The day to day tasks were to secure new referrals from the above mentioned businesses. I worked closely with activity directors, executive directors, case managers, physicians and Nurses. I was responsible for selling our services to these reverral sources.
Center Manager (Current Employee) – Las Cruces, NM – April 11, 2017
Lincare is a fun but challenging place to work with the ever changing DME industry. They are a national leader in the industry offering stability. Normal business hours with weekends off and great benefits.
Center Manager (Former Employee) – Enid, OK – December 1, 2016
Very large corporation, tons of continuing education in every career field in the company. Goals were very realistic and attainable for most of the markets. Easily accessible to upper management for answers.

Center Manager (Current Employee) – Belleville, IL – May 2, 2016
I am very proud of the work that I do at Lincare. I learn something new everyday with the changes in health care. The knowledge that I have picked up since my employment with Lincare has been a valuable asset to me. I have an excellent staff of 17 employees. The hardest part of the job is not having enough hours in the day to complete all the goals I have set for that day. I enjoy working for a company that helps people live the best life possible while dealing with their disease.
Checking insurance to see if any durable medical equipment or oxygen will be covered by the specific insurance the patient is provided by.
Center Manager-Connie Moorman (Current Employee) – Amarillo, Texas – September 28, 2015
At first, I enjoyed it. I did have a really good trainer. Then when I realized that the center manager did not know how to perform her job duties, and would always have to ask my trainer for every little thing for example: Looking a number up for a different branch. This happened on a daily basis. Most of the day and everyday. It was so distracting that it actually kept my trainer from training me. The center manager had only became manager for two months prior when I started working there, and has never been a manager before nor did she have any prior training to become one. After I noticed this, she would have really bad mood swings and become hateful/rude at any given moment. This was on-going as well. She demeaned employees in front of patients, and the patients did take notice on this matter. One patient even expressed to me that he would be taking his business else where because of the center manager's attitude. I did bring this to her attention one on one in her office with the door shut. I told her how she is not acting professional in the workplace. I addressed that every time I asked her a question, she would tell me to go ask my trainer because she didn't know. She was constantly on her cell phone telling people she has had "A Sh*tty Day" in front of her employees. The morale was so bad you can cut the tension with a butter knife. I love getting up in the morning for work, but at this job I started dreading it the minute I was driving home from work knowing I had to do this all over again with the center manager. The service tech guys were all very nice and helpful.more... After I did bring this to her attention, it seemed like things had gotten worse, it was like retaliation. So I decided to take it to upper management. This person lived in another state. I told him everything that had been going on and all he told me was he would do an investigation. He was not pleasant to speak with either. I was still open minded that things could change for the better so I still was giving it my all. When weeks went by I decided I will not be treated this way anymore. So I started looking for other employment.less
Good Training/Nice service techs
Center Manager Should not have held this position at all
