    Skype interview. Interviewer explained the position and asked a few basic typical interview questions. Explained that all scribe training is done in Fort Worth, Texas. The interviewer thoroughly described the position and spoke of her own experiences working as a scribe before her current position. The interview was an overall good experience, but, I was somewhat concerned with the starting pay.

    ER SCRIBE Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Worth, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Fort Worth, TX
    Interview Details

    Contacted by email and phone about an available position. Interviewed and was asked to start but chose not to pursue further. The pay is abysmal and the training is unpaid. Waste of time. They take advantage of premeds who are desperate to get medical exposure. A friend of mine was hired and told he would only work at certain agreed upon times but they quickly backtracked and signed him up for times he could not make due to school.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing difficult. Typical what are your career plans, why us, etc.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Poor pay. Crappy managers.

    ER SCRIBE Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at PhysAssist in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was 100% online, which I've never done before. You sit in front of your computer and speak at a webcam, which is a little uncomfortable. Overall, without the constant feedback from the body language of the person you're speaking with, you have NO IDEA how well you did or didn't do. They were a lot quicker about the whole process than any other scribe company.

    Interview Questions
    • Assuming that you want to help people and like science, what are three reasons that you want to pursue a career in medicine.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was easy, but I don't negotiate much. If I don't get an offer I like, I just don't accept the offer.

    Scribe Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PhysAssist in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is fairly simple. You go online and fill out their application. After you've submitted it, you get an email with further instructions.
    These instructions provide you with links to tasks you have to complete before your application is considered. You have to take a typing test. Don't worry, I couldn't keep up with it and I still got called for the interview. I think they're more checking typing speed than anything. You also need to take a grammar test. It's VERY easy as long as you know your basic grammar rules (singular/plural; past/present tense)
    Then you fill out an availability form.
    Once all of that is complete, you'll hear back about scheduling an interview. You have a week to schedule it and take it. It's a pre-recorded interview which means you don't speak to a person in real time. They play a video of someone asking you a question and you record a video of your response. If you don't like the video, you get an option to re-record it once. After that, you have to submit it to move on to the next question.
    I was asked a total of 8 questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Besides liking science and helping people what are three reasons why you want to be in the health field?

      Describe a time where you had a severe time restraint and what you did to overcome it?

      What do you think the environment in the ED is like?

      How do you think becoming a scribe will prepare you for your future goals?

      What sets you apart from other candidates applying for the Medical Scribe position?

    Medical Scribe Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miramar, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miramar, FL
    Application Details

    interviewed at PhysAssist in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    A week after I completed my application, PhysAssist emailed and contacted me about an interview. It is a self interview, and you have one week to complete it. If something occurs, you do have the option to extend the deadline. The great thing about the self interview is you can do it in the comfort of your own home or the library and at anytime. Make sure you have a webcam; apparetly the camera on my laptop isn't enough. Check your settings to be sure your internet and computer supports the interview even before you're ready to actually sit down and begin the real interview. I ended up doing the interview at my school's library because the internet was much faster and there was a recording studio available with a webcam. There were 7 questions, with 1.5-2 minutes to answer each question, and the option of 1 chance to redo my answer. Once they ask you a question there is a 3 second countdown before it begins to record your answer. Afterwards you have the option to replay your answer, redo your answer, or go to the next question. A week and a half after my interview, I was offered the job.
