DaVita Interview Questions

To give yourself the best chance of employment after you submit your DaVita application, prepare for the interview by practicing some questions.

Why do you want to work with us? This is very likely to be the first question you’re asked, so in order to be prepared, do some research on the company before you go.  That way you can give a full answer detailing what you like about the company and the job description of the role you’re applying for.

How would you calm down a distressed patient?  If you’re working in a patient-facing role, even if your job role isn’t medical you may need to deal with patients who are difficult or need calming down.  You need to show the interviewer that you can manage this kind of situation professionally.

Which one of our core values do you identify most with?  The company takes its core values very seriously, so make sure you know what they for starters.  Be prepared for this question and explain your answer fully, there’s no right answer.

For nursing careers, although training is provided, the questions are likely to be more specific about your medical knowledge and experience so make sure you’ve reviewed this before you go.  Likely questions you may be asked are, “Can you tell me the different types of dialysis?” or “Do you have any clinical experience?”
