    Medical Scribe Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Parsippany, NJ
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Emergency Medical Associates (Parsippany, NJ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Four step process:
    1. Phone interview
    2. In-person interview with typing test, transcription test, and medical terminology test
    3. 2nd In-person interview with management
    4. On-site interview

    Interviewers were all very warm and welcoming. They were all fairly painless. I'd say the hardest part was the medical terminology test. I'd brush up on terms before the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I 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.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Emergency Medical Associates (Tucson, AZ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a phone interview, an online webcam interview, and a typing and note taking test. There was also a drug test once you got past all of the other hoops. The initial phone interview was short and asked a few basic interview questions. The typing, note taking and medical terminology test had certain score requirements.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the interview questions asked was how much do you want this job on a scale of 1-10 which threw me off a bit.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Emergency Medical Associates.

    Interview

    Interview process is a bit lengthy however, they are extremely thorough and very professional. Three tests are taken after first round of interviews. You can choose in person or through webcam. Transcription, typing and medical terminology test. Transcription test is fairly simple but you must copy word for word, medical terminology is simple as well but make sure to prepare a head of time (there are many quizlet study guides)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Emergency Medical Associates (Parsippany, NJ) in August 2018.

    Interview

    So far I have received a brief phone interview where she just basically asked what I thought a scribe did and if I had 100 hrs of experience. I then did "the first official round" of interviews where she asked me some situation questions, asked what my weakness was, and my plans for the future. I then did the three tests (medical terminology test, typing test, and transcription test). I studied for the medical terminology test through quizlet, which I thought was sufficient. The typing test was directly from typingtest.com and the transcription test for me was to listen to an audio clip while I took notes, and then I had to answer questions regarding the audio I just heard. I heard back about this interview maybe a week later notifying that I made it to the next round. I have not had it yet, but I do know that it is with the Regional Manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Emergency Medical Associates in November 2014.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed 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.
