    This place cares about the teammates. It’s not perfect but they try hard to provide a good experience. Lots of fun for teammates and great care for patients.


    Some of the health benefit options aren’t the best. And location is deep in DeLand. However the pros have outweighed cons for me.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the recent changes when it comes to teammate input and communication.

    Medical Technologist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at DaVita Labs (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in March 2016.


    Was surprised as the entire management team was waiting for me in a board room. An entry level technologist coming in to a room full of seasoned 7 or so managers running the laboratory. Was pleasantly surprised at how involved all the managers are in the hiring process, but it did add a few butterflies during the interview.
