I worked at Our Lady of the Lake RMC part-time (More than a year)
Working with the doctors, physician assistant, NPs, nurses, techs and other scribes was a great experience. You develop skills including how to communicate well with others and how to work as a team member. There were times when there were so many patients in the waiting room , but everyone was focused and soon was able to clear them all out. You learn and see a lot in the emergency room and the staff always answered questions (when they weren't so busy).
Since I was only a scribe, I did feel neglected and unimportant. Sometimes the physicians can be harsh on you too if you are new, which can be intimidating but I promise they aren't out to get you. The pay is terrible (min wage). Its impossible to support yourself with only this job. Most of the scribes were also in school so they would work part-time. I kept hearing how they have to look for another job but they can't find the time since school was a priority.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Our Lady of the Lake RMC (Baton Rouge, LA) in June 2015.
After I completed my application and submitted it on the hospital website, I received an instant reply that it was under review. NOTE: when you get to the end of the application, you are asked to submit to two additional voluntary surveys. I skipped these with my first application when I saw the word voluntary, but on further reading with my second submission I saw there was a message stating that your application would not be considered if you did not complete them. Just do it! Two days later I received a call from my HR Representative for a quick phone interview. That afternoon I received a call from the Unit Director who conducted another slightly longer (10 minutes) phone interview, after which an interview with the manager was scheduled. A week later i interviewer in office with the Manager (40 minutes). Immediately after Manager interview I was taken into a conference room where a peer interview took place with three current Case Managers. It was very relaxed and took about 15 minutes. I received a phone offer from HR five days later, but with a starting date a month in the future. I accepted, although I hated to wait to start. The week before starting I had an appointment with employee health at the hospital for a urine drug screen, as well as submission of immunization and health records. Immediately following that, I had an appointment with Human Resources to sign my offer of employment and to get my picture taken for my ID card. I started my orientation the following Monday with a full day called Premier Expressions. That was it in a nutshell. Yes, they were thorough, but that's a good thing.
