    Interview Details

    I was heavily recruited and went through several weeks of phone interviews and finally had an onsite interview set up. Several days after the onsite I emailed the main interviewer and asked for feedback. He emailed back that the sec. would be in touch with me soon. She never was and he never provided any feedback other than to say they were not moving fwd with my app.

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at DaVita in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was submitted by a recruiter for this position and have 5 years of experience as a Project Manager in another industry. Typically a PM wouldn't apply for a Coordinator position but I thought it might be a good way to get in the door for a large PMO in the healthcare industry so a good opportunity to pursue. I was selected for a phone screen which I was told to be *early* for as the interviewer was not fond of people who were on time or late, calling in 5-10 minutes early was expected which is fine by me. I was on the call 10 minutes early and the interviewer dialed in 4 minutes late which was annoying but I'm sure he had other interviews prior to mine-no big deal. There were supposed to be 2 people on the phone screening but only one was present and he indicated the other person (who was the hiring manager for the position) would not be on the call. Hmm, that's strange but alright, people are busy. He asked me pretty straightforward questions about my skill set, why I was leaving my current job etc. I couldn't help but notice he kept umming and ahing, stalling and seemed terribly disinterested with interviewing as if it were just a general bother; I would say to the point that he came across as very unprofessional. The real doozer is when he asked me "Why DaVita and why now?". I explained that I was excited about DaVita, they are growing rapidly, they just relocated to Denver a few years ago, excited to be part of a booming healthcare industry and large PMO. I also added that I thought it was remarkable that DaVita was one of Berkshire Hathaway's top holdings and overall that I believed I would be be great fit for their culture based on some cultural Q's I had asked earlier in the interview. So you can imagine my surprise when the interviewer repeated the SAME exact question.."Yes, but WHY DaVita and WHY now?" I paused, confused and said "Is there something you would like me to elaborate on or something more specific you would like me to discuss with regard to my response?" Rather than responding to this question..he repeated the same exact question a third time. So I rephrased some of my previous response and sprinkled in a couple comments about the culture and the way their PMO is organized, etc. It was obvious he was looking for a very specific answer to this question that I was not giving. At any rate, he sighed and moved on to the part of the interview where I got to ask specific questions about the role which he was pretty categorically unprepared to answer. When I asked what would a person in this role typically achieve on a daily basis (and how do you gauge their success from a more macro level) for the PMO team-he got audibly frustrated, sighed and said that's hard to answer. WTF? Overall, I would say he was unprepared, disinterested and probably the worst interviewer I have ever experienced. I would also like to add that this was a 3 month contract position (with high probability of being extended) so the aggressive Why DaVita, why now questions seemed pretty nutso.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at DaVita in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got called a week later. He really like me and he pulled my application up because I was persistent. Sometimes going in person may help. Sometimes it takes persistence, and just to keep getting your name out there. The interview process went smoothly. I am actually waiting on him to call me this week which he said he would "definitely do"so we will see. I will still be persistent and keep checking up on things to be quite honest..

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DaVita in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    They had everyone come in at 4 AM to shadow other PCTs. After shadowing for 4 hours, I was suppose to get interviewed. They made me wait an extra hour because there was another person shadowing and they chose to interview her first. The interview was pretty short and friendly.

    Patient Account Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at DaVita in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and a few days later, had a 15 minute phone interview with the recruiter. I was scheduled for another phone interview with the hiring manager, which lasted for about an hour. The third interview was an in-person interview, which was scheduled to last for 2-2 1/2 hours. The recruiter sent me a detailed list on what was to be discussed. Upon my arrival at the facility, I was greeted by two people, one who I was not originally scheduled to interview with. They read 6 questions off of a piece of paper (which I thought was a bit unprofessional). While answering a question, I was interrupted by a woman who was going to direct me to the testing area (for an analytical skills test). At this point, I felt like I was being rushed, mind you, only 20 minutes had passed. After the interview, I took a 30 minute test, mostly consisting of analogy questions (there is a reason why these questions were thrown out of the SAT). After the test, I was sent on my way. In total, the interview lasted only an hour. I feel that my interview was short because they had someone else in mind for the position. Also, they discussed nothing that the recruited had mentioned would be discussed.

    Insurance Counselor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at DaVita.

    Interview Details

    I initially spoke to a recruiter, about a 30 minute conversation about the company and the position. I then had about 4 follow up interviews which were about 1-2 hours long. DaVita is probably a great place to work and is absolutely a great company, but this was a significant amount of time to put in to any interviewing process. I appreciate that they wanted to be thorough and hire the right candidate, but there has to be a better and more time efficient way to do this. Perhaps the most frustrating part of my experience was after my fifth interview. I was interviewed by a panel of women, who were all wonderful, and they complimented me on my how prepared I was for the interview and they stated that they appreciated that I had researched the company and the role. I ended up not getting the position and when I asked for some feedback on my interview, I received back a very rude email about how it was obvious that I had not prepared that the role I was interviewing for was serious and I clearly was not. So, not only was it rude but also not helpful ( I really appreciate all constructive criticism!).

    Overall, poor experience with them.

    Interview Questions
    • All of their questions were pretty typical. "How would you handle this situation" type questions. They also asked a lot of questions about my experience.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at DaVita.

    Interview Details

    Filled an app online and got a call 2 weeks later. Phone interview was pretty easy going. The recruiter was very friendly and set up a panel interview the following week. The panel interview was a little intimidating since it was 4:1. But it wasn't bad at all. The questions were what you would expect at any interview. Still waiting for an official answer.
