    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. She never was and he never provided any feedback other than to say they were not moving fwd with my app.

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at DaVita.

    Interview

    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.

    • They wanted to know my underlying leadership philosophy.   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DaVita in April 2009.

    Interview

    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.
