My Work Day
Phlebotomist (Current Employee), Hazelwood, Mo.April 27, 2014
Pros: giving life to the patients that has lost hope
Cons: it's hard on your body
I love working with my patients. I have the pleasure of educating and making them feel comfortable while spending time on dialysis. I've learned how to manage my time well so the day wont become an unnecessary stressful day. We work as a team sometimes to get the job done. The only problem is that it's hard on your body, especially when you're working – more... a lot of overtime. – less

Lead File Assistant/Custodian of Records (Former Employee), Denver, COApril 25, 2014
I loved my job at DaVita. It was very difficult at times to do my job successfully due to the constant changes in supervisors, managers, directors and anyone who was assigned to oversee the records department. I loved the fact that I was able to get many opportunities to get leadership/management training, build skills in project management, and develop – more... the lead position from the ground up. In general, the people whom I worked with at DaVita were caring, kind, compassionate and loved the goal of the business to save lives. – less

Forget about having a life
RN (Former Employee), FloridaApril 22, 2014
Pros: pay and benefits
Cons: everything else
Though Davita has good benefits, once you get past the 90days, it truly takes your personal life. 15 to 20 hr days and back to back call. Also, the orientation was not set up in such a way that as each task was completed it was checked off by both you and your preceptor. The pay is decent, and the co-workers were fine for the most part.

teammates were great but unorganized in keeping management
Certified Clinical Hemodialysis Technician (Former Employee), Marshall, TXApril 21, 2014
Pros: benefits and free lunches
Cons: hours, they expect you to give up a lot of family time
Start day at 3am and work till 6pm most days, took care of eight patients in a day monitoring all aspects like b/p, fluid removal during patients treatments. This company was a great company when I first started but they quit putting patients first, could never keep help so often you worked 6 days a week and many times 16 hour days. Would I go back, – more... never I got into the medical field to help people not treat them like herding cattle. – less

Davita is a good place to advance within the company.
Float Registered Nurse (Current Employee), FloridaApril 21, 2014
If you plan to more up into management, Davita may be a good fit for you. However, as a floor level nurse, the company could use some improvement. Dialysis is a very specialized field and the pay is very good, but burnout is a problem.

High Burn Out Rate but Work is Consistent
Staff RN/Charge Nurse (Current Employee), Kansas CityApril 15, 2014
Pros: bonuses, profit sharing, consistent work hours
Cons: poor health benefits, burn out rate high
If you are looking for a job that is very demanding and stressful for RN's then DaVita is the place for you! As a RN working in a Chronic Hemodialysis Unit, you have a lot of things riding on your nursing license each day. It seems that many nurses who have had disciplinary action taken against their nursing license, often find a job in dialysis clinics – more... because most units do not have narcotics that are administered by the nurse. Upper management tends to be either caddy, click-ish, and/or useless other than knowing and sharing their official job title with others. You would think the health insurance benefits would be the best in the world but are not! You would think a CEO who made 25 million in bonuses last year could at least offer his employees the best health insurance in the world.... but instead... just CIGNA. :( Training isn't the best but you have the ability to make the most out of your job role if you desire to seek out the knowledge and know how yourself. – less

unperfessional
pct (Former Employee), hackensackApril 9, 2014
the higher up in the staff, is very unprofessional and find it ok to reprimand employees on the treatment floor during turn-over and in front of patients. Also find it ok to fire someone over the phone.

they have no common courtesy that employees have families and a life outside of work and need to do what needs to be done for their families.

they – more... worry more about getting patients on and off the machines on time then worry about taking their time to do things the right way. – less
