    If you are applying for an RN position with DAVITA DON'T do it !!!This company will work you SICK. You will not train to be a charge nurse. They will only train you to be a tech. This is what you will be assigned to do the majority of the time you are working....

    I have been working at DaVita full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits(could be a little better), flexible, steady work and helped their teammates in the hurricane areas and other disasters. DaVita does step up to help in charitable areas needed.

    Cons

    need better benefits, lower teammate's share of insurance premium, Less demanding, high pressure to produce quantity, and village concept is kind of hokey.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the "Mayor" label and" village", etc. Teammate concept is good. Make it so everyone will buy-in and it is "real"; not fake.

    "Good place to work depending on your coworkers and management."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    - 3 (12) hour shifts was a full work week
    - two bonuses a year ($700+) although the last year for bonuses is this 2017 year.
    - everything is repetitive all day long

    Cons

    - ALWAYS short staffed and management seemed to really not care.
    - Always call ins adding extra pressure/work to coworkers who did show up to work.
    - sometimes you would be scheduled more than 3 days without being asked.
    - hard to take vacation days (was always told we were short staffed)
    - rarely any raises, I had a .50 cent raise while I was there
    - a lot of Filipino coworkers, which isn’t a problem to me, what bothered me was when they would speak in their language all day long & management said/did nothing.
    -VERY FAST PACED

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management- when you see your employees are short staffed and struggling out on the floor it wouldn’t hurt to get up off your seats and go on the floor to help.

    Pros

    I have a fair amount of autonomy in my current positions and work closely with both physicians and patients. I have great patient technicians and enjoy my work.

    Cons

    There is definitely a gap between the corporate office and the daily workings of the clinics, which can be frustrating.

    Pros

    One of the BEST Companies I was able to Grow at!
    I learned many things here and I'm very grateful for this and I met some really amazing people. It wasn't just a Co-Worker or Patient experience, we were family!

    The company has continuous self paced and Instructor led training and an Annual Davita University, that selected employees can attend atleast once in their career. If I was offered that awesome Full time position in my area, I would still be there today! It's so many wonderful things I have to say about this company.

    Cons

    A Full time opportunity as an AA, in my clinic wasn't ever in the budget.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the Great work, and continue to make each day positive!

    I have been working at DaVita full-time

    Pros

    I love my patients. I have good co-workers who really care about our patients. I get to teach kidney classes occasionally. Immediate management cares about us and tries to protect us from upper management.

    Cons

    Davita tries to con us into thinking that we're a 'village' and our highly paid CEO is our 'mayor'. We are forced to sit through brainwashing sessions and sing company songs while watching our egotistic CEO prance around in his costume.
    They say our pay is 'competitive' which means they pay the bare minimum to keep people working here. Our medical/dental truly is an embarrassment. Davita has partnered with several other corporations that aggressively try to sell us products at a 'discount' and then we are allowed to have our pay docked until we pay off our debt.

    Advice to Management

    Pay us what we are worth. Cut the brainwashing embarrassment. We aren't stupid. Don't let anyone who's not medically trained make policy. Consider employees and patients before profit. All managers, especially higher managers should be medical professionals, not just someone with a business degree.
