    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PhysAssist.

    Interview

    I applied online through the website and got a call to schedule an interview 2 business days later. The interview was on Skype. The recruiter was very nice and made me feel comfortable. It was 1 on 1, which is always nice. The questions were pretty simple, but I always hate the obligatory "tell me about yourself". It lasted almost exactly 30 minutes. The first 10-15 minutes is questions asked of you, while the rest of the time was her telling me about he company. It seems like a good job for students, but I just couldn't accept minimum wage (I mean VERY minimum wage-legally the lowest they are allowed to pay) I am in school but already have a degree so it was not the right fit for me. If you are desperate for experience working with doctors, go for it.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PhysAssist in August 2015.

    Interview

    Skype interview that lasted around half an hour for me. My interviewer just spent time asking about what kind of person you are and how you would perform in an ER setting. Some questions were difficult to answer if you never experienced that situation before such as death in the ER. Overall interview was fairly easy and relaxed.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at PhysAssist in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call to schedule and interview 3 days after I applied (super quick turn around). The interview took place via skpe and was very casual. First she asked me to tell her about myself, then asked me if I was in school and what classes I am taking. It was a very relaxed interview, not too hard! At the end she explains the position and told me to email my recruiter if I am interested with my location preference.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PhysAssist.

    Interview

    The interview process is a 40 minute to an hour Skype interview. The recruiter asks questions regarding why you want to be a scribe and and how you would react to certain situations while working as a scribe. Some of the questions could be easily answered if you watch the videos about the duties of a PhysAssist ER scribe, but others require you to be open-minded and reflect on your own experiences

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PhysAssist.

    Interview

    Skype. Very informal. Basically said "oh you have experience that will be helpful." I am sure they would say that about any medical related training or experience. I am pretty sure if you speak English and are friendly you would be considered I know a few employees who are not even going into the medical field that still got hired. I heard of a few people who could hardly speak English even. They did not pass training of course. Out of any job interview I have had this was by far the easiest.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PhysAssist (Miami, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was very short (less than 20 minutes!) and informal through Skype. I was at home and she was at the office with people walking in the back and you could slightly hear conversations. She was very friendly and easy-going so I wasn't nervous. She asked standard questions like "why do you want to be a scribe," "tell me about your clinical experiences," "what is your understanding of what a scribe does?" and the first thing she said was "tell me a little bit about yourself."
