Pros: patient care, I love the patients
Cons: money sucks
You work your butt off for very little money. you work 14+ hour shifts, not for sure if you ever get a break and its almost impossible to move up unless your related or best friends with management.

patient care technician (Current Employee), concord, ncAugust 6, 2015
Working as A pct for davita can be very challanging. I feel it take a strong person do work in the healhcare field its self. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that Im helping someone through another day of life. I have learned alot through my experience of being apart of the dialysis world and hope to conitnue to learn more. The harderst part of my job is getting attached to patients and seeing them go away. Again the job could be challenging but i love it.

Not so good
Facility Administrator (Former Employee), Portland, OregonAugust 5, 2015
They state that they want you to have a work life balance, but that is not the case, they continually add more to your plate, without taking tasks away. You work a lot of long hours and continuous days.

Very Poor Administration
RN (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OkAugust 4, 2015
Pros: none
Cons: Poor administration
this is a for profit company. My hours were manipulated so that I was not given Overtime pay. Salaries are very low. This company does not value RN's or their experience. Not recommended in the Oklahoma or North Texas region.

Fast paced
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee), Battle Creek, MIJuly 27, 2015
This is one of those jobs that you either love it or you don't. It is hard work with sometimes having to take care of a patient with only 15 minutes and hope that their access dosen't bleed to much. There wasn't enough time time to take care of the patient, clean the area and get the next patient in and hooked up.

Uncomfortable
Patient Account Specialist (Current Employee), Brentwood, TNJuly 24, 2015
Pros: Family feel
Cons: Short lunch, micro managed, unorganized
A typical day at work is just like any other day. We have alot of work to do at short deadlines. I actually learned alot bby teaching my self. The training at Davita is okay but hard to catch on, because your not doing hands on things. The management is okay, everyone is not on the same page. The job would be better if we got paid more for all the work that we do.

Productive Work Place
LVN (Current Employee), Conroe, TXJuly 24, 2015
Very great place to work. Always meet your fulltime hours. Just not the best kid/family friendly place to work. I have learned how to cannulate patients, assess vitals, monitor patients as needed, access CVC sites, administer medications, administer injections, how to educate patients with patient education that may be needed by the patient, and I have also learned the role of how to train all new employees hired on by our facility. Management has been great and they are wonderful and very open to teach you new things. The co-workers are great, a pleasure to work with, I love being a leader and enjoy working with new people. The hardest part of the job is trying not to get attached to my patients. The most enjoyable part of my job is everything. I love helping people and I love teaching people how to better learn their jobs.
