Director Interview

Director
Brentwood, TN

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at DaVita.

Interview Details – I applied through Dice and was called and interviewed very quickly. The process was typical phone screens with manager, then HR. The onsite was a full day with multiple senior managers and was fairly interactive. They did a good job of having a conversation rather than just me speaking or the interviewers rambling

Negotiation Details – They asked what I was making and what i wanted. I was in their range so not too much negotiation. The 401k match is tricky because they do not match in the traditional sense. After 1 year of employment I still don't know if it's a good deal or not

Patient Care Technician Interview

Patient Care Technician

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at DaVita in July 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online and the whole process took about a month. After submitting application online, I was asked to take an online test. After that, I received a call from the FA just going over some specifics of the job. A couple days later, I received a call from an Asst. FA to set up a time to interview. I went to the clinic about a week later and shadowed another PCT and interviewed with the Social Worker.

Interview Question – There really were not too many unexpected questions. Most of my time at the clinic was with the PCT teaching me about the position and making sure that it was something I wanted to do.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There wasn't any negotiating. The starting salary is set.

Ccht Interview

Ccht
San Antonio, TX

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at DaVita in May 2010.

Interview Details – Too long, took more than a month, 3 or more interviews, background check took 2 weeks and had to take a personality exam.. Davita's process is incredibly long and monotonous. Each interview felt the same and never broke new ground.

Interview Question – All questions involved time management and how long I planned on working for Davita. THey were more concerned with what it would cost to train me and kept reminding me of how high the turnover rate was for new techs.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – no negotiation, just straight offer. would not pay more due to "cost of training new staff"

Reuse Technician Interview

Reuse Technician
Wilmington, NC

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at DaVita in July 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online for several locations at once for both PCT and Reuse Tech. I got the standard email for the PCT positions saying my application was being presented to manager, then I got an email from HR saying she wanted to set up a phone interview. I emailed back with several blocks of time for her. The phone interview was about 10 minutes of behavioral questions (tell me about yourself, best/worst quality, and tell me about a time when...) she kept it pretty brief, and then said she was passing me into the next step and presenting my resume. I got a call from the center within a couple days for a shadowing session and interview. I shadowed the current tech and then was led into the interview which was one on one and informal, more like a chat. She was trying to feel me out to see if I would be able to fit it. At the end I got a formal offer and pending background check and drug test (done by HR in Colorado) I have the job.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself, and "what would your current supervisor say about you?"   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I asked for a dollar more than the initial offer, she is trying to get it approved through HR.
