Too many political games and favoritism....Unprofessional and Goofy...Inappropriate conversations and comments...The office environment standards could easily be surpassed with a class of first graders...they have practiced manners...Awful...Terrible experience...Very traumatic...
They say that the $1.00 per hour is approved and will be on the next paycheck on the 10th of never. Don’t hold your breath. You train new teammates and you can’t get connected to submit for the payment. Davita only cares about their money, the staff cares about the patients and that is why we stick around.
This company is a complete JOKE! Process took 4 months and had a total of 6 interviews! The level of incompetence by management is overwhelming along with their indecisiveness! If you want to work with knowledgeable professionals this is absolutely not the place. Take your knowledge and skills to a company that is actually deserving of your talents!
What is the schedule like? How many days per week? How early and how late? Weekends? Holidays?
Completely random. On call 24/7 Mon-Fri according to manager but not according to any written policy. Basically you need to be available 4am to 9pm Monday - Saturday but you will only be paid for hours worked. Except early morning "emergency calls" nearly every single day which you will not be paid for in violation of labor laws.
MY advice? You need system in place to really investigate the complaints; instead of passing them around in an effort to save certain leadership's jobs...you lose valuable teammates this way..It is blantantly bias....I was severed from Davita...not fired!!!! Due to an incident involving a Manager...People Services were terrible in the handling of my complaint. Everyone was hostile towards me. It was disgusting...I gave seven committed years ro Davita and was pushed out...Seniors were changing my time; especially during my lunch times... I was a very highpeformer and it was discouraged and unreconized for years...Around the time I returned to ithe office...Worst mistake of my life...the juvenile atmosphere was sickening....
East Los Angeles Doctors Davita, Worst clinic I have ever worked in due to lack of caring for patients, new employees and non favored usually, female employees. Manager favored and tolerated disrespectful behavior, walking off floor, leaving patients short staffed, taking patients off early so certain favorites could take longer breaks. Management was made aware of all this from nurses and techs but these favorites continued to get away with this as well as disrespectful behavior and harassment.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make DaVita a better place to work?
New machines for patient safety, greater pay for employees doing the work at clinics, less pay for upper management. Bonuses and profit sharing. No PTO used for federal holidays. Surprise visit clinics as the CEO, you know that will ensure clinics operate properly.
Dialysis is a very specialized field. If you want to be stuck only in this field then go for it. If you want more open doors in the future find a different line of work in the medical field.
