"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."

"FAs love Davita bc of the huge bonuses they get."

What do you like about working at DaVita?

"The patients and the clinical staff with the exception of the FA."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Find another company to work for. Davita will crush your soul and try to turn you into a robot."

What don't you like about working at DaVita?

"Awful benefits. Inexperienced administers. Administrators get huge bonuses bc of all the hard work of the clinical staff. Clinical staff gets Jack s$!t while the administrator yells and writes people up for hindering their chance at a bonus. Patient and staff safety is compromised d/t low staffing levels and the staff they have are burnt out from awful hours and low pay."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Seek out FAs with experience. Take staff opinions into consideration when hiring administrators. Better benefits, and at least cost of living raises each year."

Administrative Assistant

What do you like about working at DaVita?

"These days the only thing that makes me happy is seeing my favorite patients."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be sure this is the career you want, because once you're here, you're here forever."

What don't you like about working at DaVita?

"DaVita is all about numbers. Your hours are based on how many patients are at your clinic. Our clinic is getting slammed but we can't hire another nurse because the numbers say we're doing fine with our current staffing. Nurses spend between 43-50 hours a week working a 4-day work week. It's impossible to move within the company too. DaVita loves to hire from the outside so much that a lateral move is like pulling teeth. (I still haven't pulled this off.) Oh, and they don't match any of your 401K!"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Stop all the micromanaging or just do the task yourself."

"Terrible place to work because it sucks the life out of you!"

What do you like about working at DaVita?

"I like the patients and feeling that I make a difference in their lives through the time and effort I spend to help them live a quality life."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Unless you are prepared to devote 60-75 hours/week to a job and only get paid for 40, don't interview. They keep talking about a work/life balance but no one gets to live it unless you are high up in management. I would only work here again if I was a fresh college graduate looking for work experience or I was at a place in life where I needed a job to consume me. Unless you suck up, you will not advance."

What don't you like about working at DaVita?

"I dislike DaVita itself! We are so metrics-driven it is ridiculous! The need to please our RODs drives people to practice outside the core values we talk so much about. Fear of not being the best and getting walked out the door is constant! I hate this company and wish I had not worked myself into a corner by specializing in dialysis; I now am finding it difficult to find other work. I don't trust any of my superiors and most of my peers, as they talk about people and would not hesitate to stab you in the back if it caused them to look better. There is no support from my supervisors, and the concept of team is a joke. We talk so much about our MV and core values, but we no longer live them. We host a farce called town hall, where you are encouraged to ask questions from your leaders. God forbid, you ask a question that is difficult, may be construed as negative, or is a complaint! You will hear about, it and it will be held against you!"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Live the core values. My managers act like day-to-day keeping of this company running is beneath them. There is definitely a hierarchy of importance and elitism. Favoritism is rampant, and rarely are effort and skills the reason for promotion."

"I enjoyed the fact that I could be on my own for some of the time, with no one around to really bother me."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be very careful of what you wish for, as you just might get it! Make sure you get whatever they tell you in writing. I've been lied to a few times about that."

What don't you like about working at DaVita?

"Management has its issues. They hire people not qualified to lead people, just because they have a degree. Certain areas of the country have racial issues between management and the workers."

"This was the best employer ever."

What do you like about working at DaVita?

"I liked that it was for-profit. They paid very well compared to any other companies in that market."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

What don't you like about working at DaVita?

"I disliked that they had more than four corporate-based offices. They need other billing facilities."

Social Worker

What do you like about working at DaVita?

"I like that it is a short commute from my home."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"I would not recommend working for this company. Employees are not supported, not given adequate training and tools to do the jobs assigned, and not treated respectfully."

What don't you like about working at DaVita?

"The company makes it very clear through every company practice that profits, rather than patient and staff well-being, is the most important consideration, while claiming to be the best dialysis company in the world. No matter what your role in the clinics, the workload is completely unrealistic. The management seems remote and clueless about what it is like to work in the clinics. Employees are managed in a culture of fear and intimidation, and this gets passed on to patients, whose lives depend on dialysis. This company is very unethical as an employer and as a health care provider."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would have a more realistic understanding of what it is like to work on the front lines in DaVita facilities. I would cut out the phony corporate culture."
