Friendly and Fulfilling place to work

Featured review

DaVita selected this as a representative review
DaVita has a saying, “We give life” and this is definitely what drives most people who work at DaVita. It is fulfilling to know that your hard work and effort results in thousands of people being able to spend quality time with their loved ones. Davita is a fun place to work. The workers (Teammates) are happy because they are treated with respect. There are so many roles but the predominant role is clinical in nature. The clinics are smallish (24 patients) so there is a very tight knit camaraderie established which helps to separate one from the typical overbearing corporate experience.


Friendly, fun, fulfilling, challenging, educational, flexible, good benefits and perks


Low pay compared to hospitals, big corporation feel, often work understaffed

Management was exceptional

The RN oversees the techs and does patient assessments and makes adjustments to treatments to fit the needs of the patients. At Davita you get to regularly see the same group of patients which helps to determine when they are off their baseline. The work environment was very welcoming and management was always available but never micromanaged.

:) balance

:) your work load will depends on how you manage your time and how you do things. If your new to the position it will be a lo and will surely be overwhelmed but as long as you pace yourself, I guess it will be okay

Difficult work culture and extremely low pay

The work culture was difficult -- a lot of inter employee drama. A lot of turnover. Pay was extremely low. High management did not listen to concerns of clinics.

Used to be a very good company to work for, this has changed drastically over the past 2 years.

Don't expect ANY upper management to help resolve issues, they are great at saying they will address issues but never follow through. It doesn't matter how far up the ladder you go for help with compliance issues, teammate issues, policy/procedure issues and staff that refuse to follow them, you won't get help with teammates that make the entire environment hostile with swearing, yelling and coming at other staff, on treatment floor. You are completely alone, no upper management takes any initiative to STOP these types of behaviors. Davita has a HUGE turn over rate because they don't care about any of there staff or the environment they are forced to work in>. The PATIENTS are literally the BEST pat of this job!! I wouldn't EVER refer ANYONE to work for Davita they are a terrible company and only care about the $$$$$.Davita is NOT competitive with the rate they pay Nurses or PCT's, THE pay is not worth the stress and mental exhaustion in this environment !


sometimes get free lunch for celebrations. Womnderful patients


Nurses dont get there breaks, always short staffed, hostile environment, poor upper management, poortraining with comouters

Rewarding job, but terrible hours

The job itself was very rewarding and educational. However the hours in which you work are hard to get use to. You work from 3AM-2PM and the pay does not seem to make it worth the hours

Absolute trash. Managers are horrible-very catty. Short staffed and will make you work like that with no regards to your physical or mental well being. Money over safety/patient care.

Great place to work and opportunity to grow

What is the best part of working at the company?Davita has shown me great performances in helping me learn the Davita way at their villages/ work sites . Everyone has shown great interest in myself as far as my daily responsibilities at my work siteWhat is the most stressful part about working at the company?The job can and will become stressful if you don’t get a good understanding of what is required of you on a day to day basis.. It can be fast pace between setting up and getting ready for the Patients to receive their treatments.. and ending treatments.. it’s all about what you know to do as for as your job performance beginning of your day until the end of your day..What is the work environment and culture like at the company?It’s friendly loud at times … not that loud because you have to hear your patient machines as well as them if an alarm goes off on the machines..What is a typical day like for you at the company?Busy,..attentive responses from patients.. and workers on the floor

Gave me my career wings

I enjoyed working at DaVita in my 4 years there. The company values and culture gave me the foundation for how I have operated in my career. Ultimately the group I was in was not a good fit for me, but it was such a long time ago now.

Great co workers

Good place to work, benefits are good, pay could be better. Insurance is great. It’s long hours on your feet and a lot of heavy lifting with chemicals and boxes.

not enough training

I felt horribly unprepared to work on the high risk patients we treated, staff also really didn’t seem to take sanitation seriously which I found odd considering the nature of the job. Some wonderful coworkers & some that sucked. The nurses tended to not have a lot of compassion for the patients which was disheartening.

Great for getting your foot in the door

A typical workday? In the clinic at 4AM-5AM, more than likely running short (high PCT turnover rate). I learned to brush everything off because you’ll put up with a lot. Time management is a big part of the job. Management? The FA’s will let you know every chance they get that you are replaceable when they in fact, cannot replace you because the older techs push everyone out (terrible bullying culture). Hardest part? The long hours, working out of ratio all the time, management adding MORE of a patient load even though they do not have the staff to dialyze patients. Not being able to report misconduct because you for sure, will be retaliated against. The most enjoyable part? The paycheck and the patients (you’ll love majority of them which will MORE than likely keep you there).


Patients, the overtime pay and meeting new people


Short breaks, pay and constant bullying
