    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DaVita (Royal Oak, MI) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Started with online evaluation you take, after that I was contacted by a recruiter and had a phone interview. Followed by a panel interview with administration, and lastly a one on one interview with the facility administrator and shadowed a current tech for about an hour. I'm glad a got to shadow a tech because the video they show you on the application site is no where near how it really is. Its very fast paced and slightly overwhelming. I am still waiting to hear back if I got the job or not, but at this point it's been several days and I have not heard anything. Overall the company seems like a great company to work for and there's potential to move up. But if you struggle with multitasking, learning quickly and working 12-15 hour days starting at 3am; then this job won't be for you. I wasn't impressed with the pay offered, but I couldn't negotiate because I was inexperienced.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DaVita (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online and was sent an online survey that day. Completed the survey and was told to schedule a phone interview. Had my phone interview with corporate, and it was with a lady named Ashley. She asked basic interview questions, and asked if I had any. I was then scheduled an in person interview for a week later. A very nice interview. Everyone was super nice and basically just explained the position. I had to wait almost a week to hear back after which was pretty stressful. They called and told me I got it!
