My DaVita Experience
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) –  Lakewood, COAugust 25, 2016
I am lucky to work closely with a strong, supportive team caring for our patients. Working with patients can be unpredictable, but together there is nothing we can't handle.

Overall good company to work for
Peritoneal Dialysis Nurse (Current Employee) –  Burton, MIAugust 25, 2016
Good company to work for. I think they need to have clinics managed by RN. Advancement opportunities are present but usually requires traveling. Insurance is given and vacation time is given. Overall is a good company to work at.
Pros
Flexible schedule
Cons
Management could improve

Each department is really different, some are difficult to work for. I can't speak for all, but I have seen some that were very good and some that were less desirable.

Company does not value it's patients
Dialysis RN (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAAugust 15, 2016
Money is the primary focus of this company. They do not take precautions to ensure safety for patients if they will be spending too much money on associates staffing the unit. Short staffing is a huge problem and all associates experience burnout after being worked to the bone.

Poor choice of work

Pros
Great dialysis, company great benefits
Cons
Long hours short breaks, lots of mess, mismanagement, only 7 days off per year pto

Productive workplace maintaining golf course needs
Cart Attendant (Former Employee) –  Vallejo, CAAugust 15, 2016
Washing and putting away golf carts, making sure all bathrooms are cleaned, and providing customer service to all golfers coming out to play. Coworkers were excellent to work with. Management could have used better communication to talk and work with people in other positions. The most enjoyable part was being out on the golf course working.

Challenging, fast-paced field, but no advancement
Hemodialysis Technician (Current Employee) –  Puyallup, WAAugust 14, 2016
Davita is an excellent company to work for, as long as you're not a PCT (dialysis technician). The job is very rewarding, but with the amount of blood/infections/contagious illnesses/hepatitis classes/chemicals that you are exposed to, the compensation is very low and disappointing.
PCT's perform the most important job of the dialysis industry, especially since they have the most direct face-time with every patient, enabling them to be every individual patients' aid and care.

We give out medications, provide direct dialysis treatment, assist with all concerns and reactions of the patients, perform needle cannulations/lab draws, keep patients safe and healthy, remain the first responders to adverse events/bleeding/BP crashes/heart failure, and have essentially every duty that an RN/Charge Nurse has on the floor...but without the title, recognition, or the pay. This makes working for company very frustrating and limiting, given the amount of work that is required of you. The lack of appreciation is constant, while incentive for moving up within the company is non-existent.

The most rewarding part of the job is that you are saving lives, first hand. But I was hoping for more opportunities and advancement when working for one of the largest kidney care companies in the world.
Pros
Plenty of practice improving medical skills, generous PTO
Cons
lack of hours (even at full time), low pay, high turnover, no advancement opportunities

Unstable schedule
Acute Dialysis Nurse (Current Employee) –  Burlington, MAAugust 11, 2016
Opportunity to make a lot if desired to work long hours, a lot of overtime available. The schedule is very unstable, not knowing when you will get to go home

Davita is an amazing place to work and they care about their employees and patients
Patient Account Representative (Current Employee) –  Tacoma, WAAugust 11, 2016
Davita had a strong belief in work/life balance. Davita has 7 core values and they resonated with me. Davita offers a lot of options for understanding different department roles with opportunities for advancement. I would continue my employment if I was not moving to Spokane, Wa.
