    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Emergency Medical Associates (Parsippany, NJ) in December 2014.

    Interview

    First met with the hiring manager who was really nice. Asked the generic interview questions such as availability, strengths, what experience you want to gain from the company, etc. Then you take a medical terminology quiz, two scribing tests, and a typing test. The interview was fairly normal, nothing you wouldn't expect.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was one of the most professional I've ever been involved in. From the initial recruiter contact, to the site interview, I felt things went along very smoothly with communication going both ways. I never felt as if I couldn't get feedback to a question I had within a timely manner.

    Negotiation

    Relatively painless.

    The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Emergency Medical Associates (Parsippany, NJ).

    Interview

    Initially submitted my application including cover letter and resume through their website. Received a phone call within a week from a recruiter to further discuss the position and my qualifications. Within the next week received a phone call inviting me for an interview, which was held 2 days later. Had my first interview with a different recruiter than the one who first called me. The interview lasted about an hour, of which the majority consisted of questions about my perception of the job and its responsibilities, my qualifications for the position, etc. I was asked to rate my interest in the position on a scale of 1-10, which took me by surprise. After the questions I took 2 dictations tests, a typing test (both on the computer), and a medical terminology test. I believe I did well on all of them. I was told that there were three rounds of interviews, the first one I was having with the recruiter, the second one with the Regional Manager, and the third one with the hospital I would potentially be working at. I then received a phone call within the week inviting me for the second interview with the Regional Manager, which was to take place two days later at a Starbucks. However, the next day I received a call back saying that the interviewer got sick and the interview was postponed a week. I had the second interview on the rescheduled day at the Starbucks. I'm not sure how it went, it was awkward interviewing in a Starbucks. Two weeks later I received a call from the first person I interviewed with who told me that the positions at the hospitals I was being considered for have filled, and that I wouldn't have been able to commit the one year minimum that they require (since I would potentially be attending grad school next year). However, he assured me that I was a good candidate for the position and they would have liked to have me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Emergency Medical Associates in September 2014.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by phone by a recruiting coordinator, who first asked me about my basic availability, interest, and qualifications for the position. I was then told I would be contacted within the next week if the company wanted to continue with an initial interview. I was contacted the next day, and set up for an interview two days after. The interview lasted about 1.5 hours and was composed of a general set of interview questions about myself, my resume, and my experience, and the second part of the interview was a typing test, a medical terminology test, and two transcription tests. The medical terminology test was challenging, but doable, and the transcription tests were pretty straightforward. I received a call a few days later about scheduling a second interview with the regional coordinator. That interview lasted about 30-45 minutes and went over the same questions I was asked in the first interview. It seemed quite repetitive, as I wasn't asked any new questions. I was told that if I made it to the next round interview, it would be at the hospital site and would be with the head CIM and director at that site.

    Overall, the people involved were very friendly and returned calls and scheduled interviews very quickly.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Emergency Medical Associates (Newark, NJ) in July 2014.

    Interview

    It was a little nerve racking because of all the questions asked and the tests I had to do right in front of the interviewer but overall I think the interview was reasonable. The interviewer was very nice and patient but it was really hard to read their face to see what they thought overall of my qualifications, etc. I feel that was one of the most difficult things was reading them to see whether they even liked you or not.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Emergency Medical Associates in June 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was overall an organized and stress free process. After answering a few questions concerning my interests and availability an interview was scheduled. I was able to meet with everyone on the same day which was time efficient and greatly appreciated. I received an offer the next day and my questions concerning my contract were given attention promptly.

    Interview Questions

    • The credentialing process was awful. The credentialing specialist that I was assigned to didn't seem to know what she was doing and did not respond to my emails for several days and was rarely available by phone. I was asked for the same items repeatedly despite having turned them in. Once I had stopped working at my former full time job and had the time to track behind her and get the information needed, I was finally credentialed.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Easy process. My questions were answered promptly and changes were made without an issue.
