    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fresenius Medical Care - North America (Augusta, GA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted about two weeks later to have a face to face interview which took place about 3 days later. I met with a RN who was also the hiring manager at the facility. She was very nice and she told me that the job sometimes requires long hours and prn call ins due to other employees calling out. She also explained to me that her biggest pet peeves included having employees call out of work excessively and participate in workplace drama. After the interview she told me that she had a lot more candidates to interview within the next week but she would definitely put me on her "recall list." So now I am just waiting for that phone call.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fresenius Medical Care - North America (Mesa, AZ).

    Interview

    My application was submitted first. After about a week, I received a call back for an interview. The interview was scheduled that week and only lasted about 30 minutes. Fortunately, I was told that I was likeable and a preferred hire. But after about two weeks I still had not heard of an additional open position yet.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question was not really a question from the employer. The assessment test was a bit intimidating. I had been good with my vocabulary but, I advise anyone to really brush up before attempting the assessment test.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fresenius Medical Care - North America (Kingman, AZ) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy going. As I have been trying to get in with this paticular Fresenius for months, so management already knew my experience and skills. The hiring seemed to take forever from the initial interview, to the job shadowing, to the second interview, then th e 10 wk traing program.

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult part was the personality profile that they send you via e-mail. It included questions from math, word associations, and senarios to test what kind of person you are and how you would react.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I asked that they work with my schooling schedule. They excepted these terms and even told me that the company would help me pay to advance my carrer to become an RN.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fresenius Medical Care - North America (Deerfield, IL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was scheduled one week in advance. When I arrived, the clinic manager seemed to read off scripted questions with little or no personal flare. I submitted to a cheap oral drug screen while sitting at the desk of my future supervisor which initially came back as inconclusive. A second screen was more accurate and of course was negative. The clinic manager did give me a tour of the facility which I did appreciate.

    Interview Questions

    • What's your biggest weakness? Not too difficult of a question.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation with Fresenius Medical Care, you'll take what little they give you, and you'll like it.

    • Most difficult question was "Why should we hire you over the other candidates?"   Answer Question

    Negotiation was tough. They do not pay as much as other dialysis companies. However, they are a great company to work for.

    Interview

    Applying for the position online gets you nowhere and you will not receive a call back. You must actively pursue management and really show that you are interested by making phone calls and mailing/faxing resume and cover letter to the unit you are interested in. Once you get an interview it is smooth sailing as long as you have dialysis experience.
