    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DaVita.

    Interview

    After I completed the application , I had a phone interview. The phone interview was about 15-30 minutes. The interview person emailed me back in a timely manner in regards to the interview. They also called on time as promised and didn't keep me long. They were very pleasant and answered all the questions I had. This is a company that I have wanted to work for, but they interviewer put me at ease.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DaVita.

    Interview

    Contacted by email for a telephone interview. The usual basic interview. Then met a panel of Facility Administrators...this was very laid back conversation like interview. I passed and went on to meet with the FA from the facility I will be working at...usually you meet with your FA first and then the panel. I then did a shadow day at the facility and was then offered the position! The process was pretty fast and thorough. Everything happens within about 2-3 weeks.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at DaVita (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    Open ended interview, more like a conversation. They were very interested in whether the personalities would be a fit for the group. In hindsight, I should have asked more specifics questions regarding the position and duties. It was very relaxing and not a typical pressure type interview. They did not really talk about the day to day of the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Talked about my experience, and my work ethic. There were not any specific interview questions. None of the how do you handle, or what are your goals, or if this situation arises what would you do questions.   1 Answer

    Patient Care Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DaVita.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume on the Davita Career site. I was immediately "presented" to a recruiter. The next day I received a call from the Facilities Administrator to talk about the position. She then asked if I could come in for an in-person interview. I was interviewed by her, the dietician, and social worker. After they were satisfied with that stage of the interview, they invited me to come shadow the next morning to see how the other PCT's work. I was only there for an hour and was extremely excited and hoped I got the job. We negotiated right after that shadowing. She sent me an on boarding site to start my paperwork. This took about two weeks total for the background check, drug testing, and employment verifications. Make sure you have ALL of your past employers W-2's and do not lie on your application. They do want to have your CPR for Healthcare Providers before you apply, so please be mindful of that. Two to three weeks total process. Very positive.

    Credit Balance Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DaVita (Tacoma, WA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The process takes up about four stages, 1) is the application, once the application is approve then you move on to the next step. 2) Online Testing (see your thought process). 3) Phone interview and 4) Would be a one on one interview. When taking the test it is not time, and I recommend taking your time as well have a pen and paper to work with. Be honest with them if you're willing to work year for this position, apparently you can transfer through DaVita through your course of career, however, it usually 6 months, only Credit Balance Specialist require a year.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at DaVita.

    Interview

    Straight forward - (1) recruiter, (2) follow-up w/ HR, (3) manager on team, (4) analytical test - via phone/email, (5) in-person interviews on site. The analytical test was the most confusing, considering they provide you little clarification on a large data set and ask you to conduct analysis at break-neck speed. It can rattle you, but they are looking for insight into the analytical process and not an answer.
