"I was in the process of training but quit before completion. I was having trouble with different female coworkers and had to be moved to a different clinic only to encounter more bullying and gossip. Basically, I was made to feel like I need to toughen up and every job is this way. I had to receive extra training because I was behind due to the issues at my hiring clinic. It's a lot of work and a lot of responsibility. You go in between 3-4 a.m. and work an average of 12 hours or more."
"I've worked for Davita off and on since 1998. Then, the staff was wonderful (ole school), now it's about numbers, not care, not doing anything for patients, no good care, if you're sick?? can't make it to work, management angry?? like you want to be sick, no compassion, we are there for patients care. I can't say it's every management but most of it is management. I guess being in charge, you forget who you are in charge of and what your charge is, think about, Davita can be better, a lot better, like cleaning, better management, controlling your tongue??"
"This is not a good company to work for! Mandatory overtime daily, 18-20 hours, four days a week. The facility administrator will not respond to emails, text messages or voice messages. If you get sick because you are working too many hours, they make it difficult to call in sick. You not only have to call the scheduler, they have you call the clinical co-ordinator, who will try to convince you to work sick. I have only worked for Davita a few months, but have been told by RNs at two different hospitals that the Davita nurse dialyzing their patient collapsed during a treatment and a code was called. The schedulers are rude and lack any empathy for the nurses out doing the patient care. The have one goal. Assign a nurse to a patient. It does not matter how many hours the nurse has worked. Two of the schedulers are the daughters of the Regional Director. The daughters speak very condescendingly to all the nurses without fear of reprimand. I believe that Davita has a policy against nepotism. However, that policy obviously isn't followed. Bottom line is people do not matter to Davita, whether it is the patients or the nurses. Nurses working these long hours day after day are too fatigued to be safe. Working these long hours has definitely affected my health. I am one of those people who rarely gets sick and misses work. Since working for Davita, I have been sick twice and injured once. Money - that is the focus here. Making a profit. I am not against a business making a profit, but when that is the only focus the company is not being properly managed. People matter Davita."
"Davita, is well know name in the world of Kidney Dialysis. I have been working with Davita for past 1 year as a Sr. Flex Developer. It's been a great experience working with one of the best fleet of developers and architects. The management and overall company environment is very employee friendly with emphasis on flat hierarchy."
"Great company to be a part of."
"They company has to promote from within. In 6 1/2 years, not a single Manager was promoted to Director in IT Operations, causing talented Teammates and Managers to leave."
"I had 145 patients and took my facility to number one."
"Management expects you to love up to their core values, mandatory overtime that they themselves do not live up to."
"I worked for Davita for 5 years. It seems like a nice company to work for with strong values, but soon you realize that the management does not strive to live up to the same values."
"Company is great if you have the proper education."
"Care more for their bottom line than the well being of their patients or staff. Staff are overworked, unappreciated and even when threatened and have reported it to the administration, company does not do anything because they don't want to lose any money by addressing the issue with the patient. On top of that, they keep on accepting new admissions even when they don't have the staff to cover for it. No 401k matching, sets up goals for your bonuses (which by the way, the way the system is set makes it difficult to achieve) and has a patronizing regional director who has a business background and has no clue what it means to be on the floor working with actual patients."
"Working with Davita has given me so many opportunities. Located in Santa Ana, California and still growing. Respectful patients and reasonable workers. To keep us updated, the company gives us online classes. Fair with employees and gives us the tools to get the job done. This company is all about safety and professionalism. It has given me the opportunity to be bold and take my job seriously."
"Really a horrible place to try to build a career. I had to threaten to quit to get a promotion I had been doing for more than 2.5 years. After communicating my promotion my director realized that she had made a mistake by not promoting me sooner as the rest of the organization saw me in the position. Now that I've been promoted I'm not allowed to do my role, but I'm currently stuck hand holding people and being excluded at every turn. Good ideas are not encouraged, toeing the company line is."
