Acute Dialysis RN Interview

Anonymous Employee in Grand Rapids, MI
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DaVita (Grand Rapids, MI).

Interview

They will interview anyone who applies. Need only to apply. Would not recommend this job for a new grad, too much you need to learn in regard to hospital nursing to handle an emergency...and they will not teach you. Fill out online application, manager calls you and arranges an interview. Go into office where they basically describe the job, make sure you have a RN license, and that your schedule is flexible enough to be available at their beck and call. Flexibility is very important...tell them that you love OT and you love to be short shifted and you're in!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DaVita (Frederick, MD) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed via phone by HR to see if I was a match for the position. I then had an on-site interview with the Facility Administrator. At the end of the week, I shadowed a current nurse for about 4 hours. The interview process was relatively easy with my Acute Care background. I felt like the questions were more behavioral to see if I'd for into the current clinical staff and environment, and my clinical skills/abilities were not questioned since they have a very comprehensive training program for those new to dialysis.

    Interview Questions

    • Will the schedule be a problem for you? (3x12 hr shifts, on-call rotation, working every other Saturday, occasional longer shifts, occasional comp time.)   1 Answer

    Interview

    there are 4 steps. recruiter calls, interview with F.A, go to meet with a peer, and then a final interview with another administrator. the interview was as expected nothing too difficult. It seems to be a good company to work for they didn't sugar coat anything were as accurate as possible except the employee was a bit negative about the position

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at DaVita (Houston, TX) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by online recruiter and set up for phone interview 2 days later. Interview went well, closed with interviewer saying he would push me forward to the next stage of the process. I heard nothing for 2 weeks, but was then emailed back by same recruiter, who apologized and said next person would be contacting me. To his credit, that woman called 15 minutes later to set up interview with FA the next Tuesday. I went to that interview, felt it went well, was told about training and salary and then told FA (who had been on the job 2 weeks) was going back to Colorado for training, but would contact me the following Monday. Monday came and went, another week passed, and I sent a follow-up email to that FA inquiring about my status insofar as being considered or rejected for employment. Two more days have passed and I have not heard back either through email or telephone.

    I felt both people I interviewed with were very nice, but busy. The people in the office did not seem unhappy or bitter. The facility seemed clean. I did seem to know more about the company than the FA did, especially its green initiative, but that's probably splitting hairs.

    They should have contacted me. That's basic business protocol and also polite when adults interact with each other personally or professionally. I can't speculate why things happened as they did, but I know that I would have have handled things differently if our roles were reversed.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at DaVita (Philadelphia, PA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The first interview I had was with a recruiter over the phone after I had set up a profile and applied for positions online. That interview was 20 minutes. Then I had a phone interview with the facility administrator for the position I was applying for. I then had an interview in person with the FA and two other clinical coordinators. After that, they narrowed down the candidates to 4, and invited us each in for a 2 hour "shadow day" to see how we interacted in the dialysis environment and also to see if it was something that would still interest us.

    I felt that I actually should have negotiated for more. But yes, there is a chance to negotiate salary.
