    I have been working at DaVita full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Growth within the company is promising, overtime is always available, tuition assistance is exceptional and health benefits are a plus. My co-workers are amazing and very supportive of one another. Employees support Davita's mission, core values, and believe in going above and beyond as far as patient care is concerned.

    Cons

    It is very easy to lose control over your ability to balance work/home life with all of the overtime and other opportunities. Leadership is sometimes questionable…the company is hiring young leaders with little experience. I believe in giving people a chance but immaturity is coming into play when hiring some young inexperienced leaders. It has been brought to my attention, by more than one facility administrator, that those currently holding clinic management positions only last about two years. There needs to an inservice on developing and maintaining professional relationships with the staff managed. I understand wanting employees to "like" you but there are too many issues with this and there are too many people being taken advantage of. The biggest con for most Davita employees are low wages and minimal annual raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think Davita management does well and appreciate their willingness to promote current employees and hire those without experience. However, we get what we pay for and the current starting wage for unexperienced technicians is disgusting.

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at DaVita.

    Interview Details

    After a referral from my school, I had a panel interview after an appointment. I had researched the company and learned their mission and core values. The questions revolved around behavioral, conflict management and questions for a given problem scenario. I thought the questions were easy. I had another interview set up.
