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."

DaVita Employee

"Very sadly true; it once was a great company."

What do you like about working at DaVita?

"The first two years before the purchase of Gambro, all ethics and care of staff were lost at that point! The COE was out to screw people daily. The company lost all ethics or close to it."

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

"Don't, unless you have no other choices."

What don't you like about working at DaVita?

"I dislike the DaVita of today. There was a time it was a company that cared about its people; now it is only the bottom line. Upper management steps over each other to look good to the COE, even if it means axing several good people."

"Get rid of the COE."

DaVita Employee

"I USED to love this company... but times have changed."

What do you like about working at DaVita?

"I liked the stability of a Fortune 500 company. I loved this company back when it was smaller and the mission and values were more than just words."

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

"Don't fall for the mission and values speech. The sales pitch is great... and it used to ring true. But in many parts of the country this is no longer the reality. Be sure to be prepared to answer behavioral interview questions."

What don't you like about working at DaVita?

"It has changed. The company has gotten too big. The mission and values are just words. Politics and stepping on others to get to the top have gotten out of hand. Management by fear has crept in. It's just another big company now. You can't leave there without being black-balled, no matter how valuable you were as a teammate when you were there. If you leave and go to the competition, they will trash you."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Go back to the old days when you actually cared about the patients! There is too much focus on the bottom line. Even the local and regional managers can't do a good job because they have too much on their plates and are expected to work 24/7."

Patient Account Representative
in Irvine, CA

What do you like about working at DaVita?

"I liked the teammates."

Facility Administrator
in Houston, TX

"short and concise and too the point"

What do you like about working at DaVita?

"It is an excellent company with great benefits."

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

"This company does all thorough background checks and will call all former employees. It's a Fortune 500 company, and it is a business-casual company; hence, no suits and no ties. Khakis and polo T shirts are the dress code."

What don't you like about working at DaVita?

"There are too many formalities and too many systems to be worked on; hence, it keeps you busy just getting on one system to another."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Keep us away from too many conference calls and meetings; hence, we can spend more quality time with patients."
