Lincare experience report

Nightmare

1.63

Company Culture

Cares NOTHING for loyal employees only interested in number of O2 setups they can get

Support from management

Constantly understaffed not enough resources to do your job. Management is aware but does nothing to make your job better

Teamwork

the crew I got to work with was second to none always helping each other

Freedom to work independently

At one time I was trusted to run my route as I saw fit, then came the micromanagement and the GPS spy units

Internal Communication

you are kept abreast of work day, most of the time but there were always surprises

Attitude towards older colleagues

you are not respected or valued for your knowledge and experience you are a disposable employee

Career Development

whatever you are when come through the door is all you will ever be

Overall compensation for your work

required to have a CDL and hazmat endorsement. but compared to other CDL jobs the pay is not even close. you have to use your personal phone on the road, with no reimbursement, you have to be on call without being paid unless you have a call. you must also provide Your Own GPS. All work is hand written no laptops or technology.

Office / Work Environment

most people in the office were pretty good. but in service you are forced to work without A/C and share a couple of computers between 8 guys

Environmental Friendliness

made to throw away items in the dumpster that could be recycled like electronics and plastics. they also use more paper than any company on earth. still use LOTS of paper documents

Work-Life Balance

this is probably the worst part of the job. you run 15 to 20 stops a day you are dead tired and then you get to be on call all night without being paid unless you have to go out on a call. You are OWNED by the company

Company Image

Read the reviews for yourself

Job Security

worked there for 11 years without a write up no problems, made 1 mistake with center manager could have kept in house but chose to take it corporate. Next thing I know I was fired. No write up no warning no second chance just let go. I had more seniority than anyone in my department but it meant nothing

Workplace Safety

It's reasonably safe except for going into very filthy houses and having to do your work without A/C

Challenging Work

really the only challenge is can you do the work of two people without going insane

Inclusive / Diverse

Have several different races, all great people

Suggestions for improvement

What I dislike about the company
