I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DaVita.

Interview

The Interview process was thorough since they asked about hard skills and soft skills. Both interviews were conducted over the phone which is good since they concentrated more on your communication skills rather than appearance.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at DaVita in December 2014.

    Interview

    Straight forward interview. You will not be contacted if you are not offered the position. Be prepared for a group/panel interview. I had 5 people in the room asking questions. Each of them asked 3-5 questions. It was a relaxed atmosphere, and I didn't feel intimidated by the panel. As long as you are prepared for the panel interview, it should be relatively easy. It has been 6 weeks since, and I have not heard about my status towards the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at DaVita in June 2014.

    Interview

    Spoke with a recruiter, who then had me take an online test. Make sure you have a calculator handy. The test asks about scheduling and ordering of supplies, and how would you handle various scenarios as a manager. Easy enough test. I then interviewed with the regional operations director, then the group facility administrator, I still have another interview scheduled.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    The whole process was very long...it sometimes took weeks between steps. I was also asked to travel very far for an interview (2+ hours away) and then sat through 2 panels that asked essentially all the same questions. The interview also consisted of many very personal questions that didn't seem to relate to the job.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at DaVita.

    Interview

    Applied online for a Facility Administrator position. I was first contacted by email by a recruiter to set up a phone interview.

    The interview went well. There were the standard questions and a time to ask questions, the recruiter was able to answer most of them since she was in good contact with the hiring manager. The interview took about 25 minutes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at DaVita (Chicago, IL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Attended an Open House and had face to face interviews on site with a Recruiting Manager, Facility Administrator and Operations Director. I also spoke with the Regional VP of Operations during the process. I was directed to officially apply through their website for a specific position and told the formalities & legal requirements had to be taken care of, but an offer would definitely be made. I completed the application the same day and received an email to schedule a phone interview. The phone interviewer actually commented about management already making their hiring decision and seemed to feel slighted about not being part of the decision. I had to follow up with the Recruiting Manager in order to receive the on-line assessment that the recruiter kept claiming to have sent. I finally received it (4 days later) and completed it immediately.

    After the assessment, I interviewed with a Group Facility Administrator and continued on to interview with a Regional Operations Director. During this whole process, I continued to get phone calls to schedule interviews for different facilities and departments in the same company. No one seemed to be communicating internally about their applicant tracking and they had no idea I was already in the interview process. During the process it was clear that some managers were very new to the interviewing process for management. The more I interviewed, the more questionable the company became. There was a definite lack of cohesiveness on the clinical level and my questions about the type of and amount of support available to ensure success of a clinic were met with answers of “You’re considered the mini-CEO of your facility”. I took the responses to mean, support would be minimal at best. After emailing back and forth for over a month with the ROD and continuously being told I would hear something either in a few days or the next week, I gave up. This also affirmed my concern about their straightforwardness, rather their lack of it.

    About 3-4 weeks later, I received a call for yet another interview, for the same position. I reluctantly went. All of the questions asked were a regurgitation of questions I’d been asked on the previous interviews and this time there were 2 interviewers. I was told my interview was flawless and that I was obviously well prepared, trained and qualified. Toward the end of the interview they tried to convince me to take a Tech position to “get your foot in the door” reasoning that “the job market is terrible right now and you could quickly move up into a management position”. I was told that if I would take the Tech position at $17/hr, I would be handed the papers to sign on the spot. The interviewer actually said, “Well, only you know what your breaking point is and when that time comes where you’ll have to just take something. Ask yourself if you’re at that point.” The same interviewer boasted about their current position being the 3rd one held within the past 18months – 2yrs. This was a red flag for me about the company’s stability and training. I was then asked an illegal interview question and one of the interviewers stated, “I probably shouldn’t have asked that but, if it ever comes back, it would be our word against yours anyway”. After this unbelievable statement, both interviewers laughed about it and the same one stated, “Oh yeah and Integrity is one of our core values”. Then they laughed again! I thanked them for the interview and without asking any other questions, I left. I didn’t ask for a business card, follow up, or ever want to hear from this company again.

    Well, I am in the beginning stages as we speak. I had the initial phone interview a few days ago. I was told to wait for the regional Director to call and set up an interview. The phone interview was very basic.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DaVita (Birmingham, AL) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I applied online to several locations all over the US. Only some of the facilities are taking MBAs rather than RNs for this position. I was emailed by a recruiter saying "I'm sorry we are having trouble connecting via phone"...this was the first time anyone had contacted me. After a game of phone tag I finally got through the first phase of interviews with the recruiter. Completed the online questions that focused on time management and leadership traits.
     Then waited another 3 weeks to interview with the Regional Operations Director, then 2 more weeks to speak to a current FA in the area. Recruiters response time was between 2-5 days via email or phone.
    Everyone was VERY nice but I had to make a move quickly and the way to move quickly is to get a faster recruiter from what I see. So I did just that.
    In the mean time I began the process with another DaVita recruiter for the Florida region and have had two phone interviews and am scheduled for an onsite interview next week.
    Questions were:
    "tell me about yourself" is always the first question. Tell me about a time you had to deal with a difficult employee, how do you describe your leadership style, what dialysis experience do you have, what makes you think you are right for this position, what brings you to this city?

    Interview

    The initial screening is a typical rude HR screener looking for keywords straight out of the job description, vision, mission, and values. Just weave their words in your responses to the typical screening questions. Also, write down answers to typical questions such as your worse experience handling problem employees.
