    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DaVita in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was introduced through a recruiter, and then went through 2 phone interviews with HR employees before being passed on to an in-person interview. The in-person was with 2 individuals at a DaVita clinic location. One was the hiring VP who was brand new, the other was a seasoned HR guy. The interview was pretty random / didn't seem very structured. In the end, I wasn't sure what I had found out about DaVita, nor what they found out about me.

    Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at DaVita (Brentwood, TN).

    Interview

    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

    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

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at DaVita (Virginia Beach, VA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews-HR recruiters First interview: mostly over view of the company, the questions were on leadership development and how had I developed leaders in the past, what were the outcomes. Did my leaders enjoy doing their jobs because at the Davita centers, they like to have fun. My interest level was still high for this position. Second interview: the recruiter called on the wrong day and had to reschedule for the date that had been confirmed with the first interviewer (that was okay things happen). The questions were so generic, that I only remember one; Give me an example of when the rug was snatched out from under you and how did you handled it? Most of the questions came from me ; what are you looking for in this position, what is needed, are the facility administrators developed in financial management,business concepts, budgeting,customer service, how do they support the vision and objectives of the organization, is this position being restructured , what patient and employee surveys does DaVita conduct to use for talent management assessment and performance development? They did get back to me within a few days to inform me that they were still moving on with their search, and to thank me for my time. I still feel this is a great company, and HR is key in attracting the right talent to any organization.
