    Medical Scribe Interview

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Clinical Information Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Emergency Medical Associates (Parsippany, NJ).

    Interview

    Initially submitted my application including cover letter and resume through their website. Received a phone call within a week from a recruiter to further discuss the position and my qualifications. Within the next week received a phone call inviting me for an interview, which was held 2 days later. Had my first interview with a different recruiter than the one who first called me. The interview lasted about an hour, of which the majority consisted of questions about my perception of the job and its responsibilities, my qualifications for the position, etc. I was asked to rate my interest in the position on a scale of 1-10, which took me by surprise. After the questions I took 2 dictations tests, a typing test (both on the computer), and a medical terminology test. I believe I did well on all of them. I was told that there were three rounds of interviews, the first one I was having with the recruiter, the second one with the Regional Manager, and the third one with the hospital I would potentially be working at. I then received a phone call within the week inviting me for the second interview with the Regional Manager, which was to take place two days later at a Starbucks. However, the next day I received a call back saying that the interviewer got sick and the interview was postponed a week. I had the second interview on the rescheduled day at the Starbucks. I'm not sure how it went, it was awkward interviewing in a Starbucks. Two weeks later I received a call from the first person I interviewed with who told me that the positions at the hospitals I was being considered for have filled, and that I wouldn't have been able to commit the one year minimum that they require (since I would potentially be attending grad school next year). However, he assured me that I was a good candidate for the position and they would have liked to have me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Emergency Medical Associates (Parsippany, NJ) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of multiple rounds. One phone interview (initial contact), one in person and another online. The first in-person interview was the longest at about an hour and consisted of pretty general questions--go into it knowing why you want to do it. That interview also included a 10 question medical terminology test, a dictation test and a typing speed test. The typing test is pulled directly from typingtest.com so practice there if you aren't the fastest typist. Other than that, they appreciate it if you are personable, have an understanding/passion for medicine, and, as always, dress to impress.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Emergency Medical Associates (Parsippany, NJ) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of the interviewer asking me at the very beginning what I knew about the position, then proceeding to tell me exactly what the position entails. The interviewer than asked me a number of typical interview questions (background, interest in the position, etc.). This was followed by a basic medical terminology test ( abbreviations and term definitions), a transcription test (you get to a practice first), and a typing test. The whole process took about an hour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Emergency Medical Associates (Parsippany, NJ) in January 2016.

    Interview

    There are 3 rounds of interview along with the initial phone interview. Its a pretty simple process but takes time. The phone and first round of interview is just an HR person reading a script and asking questions. while the 3rd interview seemed more formal and as if the interview may actually be judging your potency. The first interview has 3 tests which you must pass to move forward, a medical terminology test, typing test and transcription test.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Emergency Medical Associates (Parsippany, NJ) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted for an interview via email after applying through indeed.com. The recruiter was nice and we set up an interview at ease. I was interviewed at their headquarters by another person. The interview consisted of multiple prepared questions, a typing quiz (need to score >60 wpm), transcription quiz from an audio file scored based on accuracy, and medical terminology and abbreviation test of about 10-20 questions (written). There was no indication of which medical terms would be on the examination in the email but they were all fairly basic... (COPD, PCP, myocardial infarction, etc.) I was contacted shortly after the interview and told I did not receive the position. No specifics were given as to why I did not receive an offer, they just mentioned they went with someone who was "more qualified".
