I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at DaVita.
Interview Details – First received a phone interview which covered basic questions. I was then sent a timed test to complete. Questions ranged from managing 'bed counts' at a hospital to scenario based questions with teammates. I presume the purpose was to gauge how effective I was at managing obstacles while also evaluating my management style. Once completed, I was scheduled for a phone interview with the ROD. After passing that phase, I entered the last phase of the process which was an interview with the ROD and HR Director.
Interview Question – On the test...a question surrounded scheduling delivery trucks at the loading dock of a hospital. given the fact that I was applying for an administrative position at a clinic, I couldn't see to correlation Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Initially, I was not given an offer as I was told they preferred to go with an RN.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at DaVita in October 2013.
Interview Details – Initial communication was through a networking connection. I interviewed with a Group Facility Administrator and a Regional Operations Director in training. I next interviewed with the Regional Operations Director and the Human Resources Manager. The third interview was with the Divisional Vice President, members of the clinic team, and the onsite physician.
Interview Question – The interview questions were all standard situational questions Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at DaVita in October 2013.
Interview Details – Lengthy and unorganized. The length could have been tolerated in order to ensure a good fit, however, senior management extremely unprofessionally by not following up with expected communication in a timely manner. Unclear and conflicting information was given frequently by several people. It seemed that they were unorganized and lacked good communication even amongst themselves and this was very evident.
Interview Question – No difficult questions, however, the company advertises a stellar work environment in terms of culture and values that they deemed critical to employment yet was not followed by senior management at all. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – negotiations were reasonable but nothing was followed through on after hire. In fact, they made it quite difficult to perform your job duties due to the unorganized manner of their training and the unwillingness of senior management to intervene and/or resolve those difficulties.

Interview Question – Describe a scenario where you had to earn your team's trust? Answer Question
I applied in-person and the process took 4 months - interviewed at DaVita in December 2011.
Interview Details –
Attended an Open House and had face to face interviews on site with a Recruiting Manager, Facility Administrator and Operations Director. I also spoke with the Regional VP of Operations during the process. I was directed to officially apply through their website for a specific position and told the formalities & legal requirements had to be taken care of, but an offer would definitely be made. I completed the application the same day and received an email to schedule a phone interview. The phone interviewer actually commented about management already making their hiring decision and seemed to feel slighted about not being part of the decision. I had to follow up with the Recruiting Manager in order to receive the on-line assessment that the recruiter kept claiming to have sent. I finally received it (4 days later) and completed it immediately.
After the assessment, I interviewed with a Group Facility Administrator and continued on to interview with a Regional Operations Director. During this whole process, I continued to get phone calls to schedule interviews for different facilities and departments in the same company. No one seemed to be communicating internally about their applicant tracking and they had no idea I was already in the interview process. During the process it was clear that some managers were very new to the interviewing process for management. The more I interviewed, the more questionable the company became. There was a definite lack of cohesiveness on the clinical level and my questions about the type of and amount of support available to ensure success of a clinic were met with answers of “You’re considered the mini-CEO of your facility”. I took the responses to mean, support would be minimal at best. After emailing back and forth for over a month with the ROD and continuously being told I would hear something either in a few days or the next week, I gave up. This also affirmed my concern about their straightforwardness, rather their lack of it.
About 3-4 weeks later, I received a call for yet another interview, for the same position. I reluctantly went. All of the questions asked were a regurgitation of questions I’d been asked on the previous interviews and this time there were 2 interviewers. I was told my interview was flawless and that I was obviously well prepared, trained and qualified. Toward the end of the interview they tried to convince me to take a Tech position to “get your foot in the door” reasoning that “the job market is terrible right now and you could quickly move up into a management position”. I was told that if I would take the Tech position at $17/hr, I would be handed the papers to sign on the spot. The interviewer actually said, “Well, only you know what your breaking point is and when that time comes where you’ll have to just take something. Ask yourself if you’re at that point.” The same interviewer boasted about their current position being the 3rd one held within the past 18months – 2yrs. This was a red flag for me about the company’s stability and training. I was then asked an illegal interview question and one of the interviewers stated, “I probably shouldn’t have asked that but, if it ever comes back, it would be our word against yours anyway”. After this unbelievable statement, both interviewers laughed about it and the same one stated, “Oh yeah and Integrity is one of our core values”. Then they laughed again! I thanked them for the interview and without asking any other questions, I left. I didn’t ask for a business card, follow up, or ever want to hear from this company again.
