I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at DaVita in March 2011.
Interview Details –
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.

Interview Details –
I applied on line and they contacted me the same day. I had a great informal interview with HR. Then nothing for weeks. I called to check up and they said they decided to "go a different direction" with the job. Then several weeks later, out of the blue I get a call from the reporting manager asking for me to meet her for breakfast the next morning. She was almost 15 minutes late and the interview felt rushed because she was leaving right after our meeting for a vacation in Italy. She was nice but we didn't connect and I realized the job and I were not a great fit after I learned more about it.
One thing is for sure: I will never agree to an interview over a meal again. Once we had finished talking about the job I had barely touched my food because I was busy answering her questions. So she was completely finished eating and just sat there watching me try to quickly finish enough of the food to not be rude (I had barely had a bite). Then she made a comment about another guy she interviewed who took forever to eat and made me extremely uncomfortable. I immediately asked for a box to go and got out of there fast. I sent a thank you note for the interview and never looked back.

Interview Details – Their internal recruiter called me very quickly. We had a 1/2 hour interview that (I thought) went well. It seemed they were looking for something in particular. I was then summarily rejected the next day with an impersonal email. It was a little head spinning, given that they were so enthusiastic when the contacted me.
Interview Question – They wanted to know my underlying leadership philosophy. Answer Question
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at DaVita in April 2010.
Interview Details – I had three seperate interviews. All three of the individuals I interviewed with said "you're the perfect candidate, but we're worried that you will be bored and quit". I tried to insure them that I would not quit, but they all three claimed that I would. Interesting how they "all" knew what was best for me.
