Precyse Solutions Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Very Easy Interview
HIM Technician Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Precyse Solutions in August 2012.
Interview Details – Interview process was very easy. I just spoke to the Director and asked if they had any PRN positions open. She said yes and i started the paperwork for the hiring process. I had worked for them previously when it was a different company
Negotiation Details – I didn't negotiate
Medcial Records Technician Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Precyse Solutions in August 2013.
Interview Details – I applied to a position months ago and was called to set up a phone interview. I called for the phone interview and was told that the position had been filled but that they would keep my information on file. I never believe this but they actually called back for another position 3 months later. I interviewed 2 days later and had a really great interview. The salary offer was not what i executed but I stuck to my guns and was offered the position late that evening.
Interview Question – The interview was not terribly intense or hard. All of the typical questions like "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" and "What are your greatest weaknesses." Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They offered much lower than I expected. We met in the middle of that.
Medical Transcriptionist Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Precyse Solutions in February 2009.
Interview Details – The interview process begins with applying online and completing a thorough skills test which includes grammar, spelling, terminology understanding and transcription ability. If you do not get an overall score of 90% or above you will not be contacted for an interview. You are able to reapply and retake the skills test again in 6 months. If you get 90% or above on the skills test and have at least 5 years of transcription experience you will be contacted by phone and email to schedule a phone interview with Precyse's recruiter and often a second interview with your potential manager. Depending on how many openings are available and the urgency to fill open positions, the interview-to-offer length can be as short as 2 days and as long as one week. Precyse provides all computer equipment and will ship the equipment to you as soon as you accept their offer of employment. Tech support will assist you in set up of all equipment. Be prepared to 'hit-the-ground-running'! You will be paid for 2 days of training on the computer system and then will be expected to work your full shift on the 3rd day. The managers will not 'hold your hand' and you will be expected to learn all the account specifics within 2 weeks while you are on 100% review of your work. There are a lot of very helpful and patient support people at Precyse and sometimes you may feel you are being bombarded with too much information. However, production expectations are very stringent and poor performers will be terminated quickly.
- Would you be willing to work 2nd or 3rd shift instead of the first shift you applied for? Answer Question
- Are you able to work for the first 90 days without absences? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There is a flat $10/hour rate for the first 2 weeks of employment. After 2 weeks you will be paid on a production basis; there are 2 separate and very different line rates for traditional transcription and voice-recognition editing (ASR). The ASR line rate is generally 65% less than the traditional transcription and 90% of the work will be ASR so be sure you negotiate the highest ASR line rate you can get. Be realistic though; your ASR production will be 250 lines/hour or higher and $0.08/line for ASR work seems to be the cap.
