    Pros

    Basically will hire anyone. Thats pretty much it.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay, No vacation, they could care less about thier scribes. They charge the hospital 20+ dollars per hour and pay you only 10.


  6. "Scribing, fun. The company, not so much."

    I worked at Elite Medical Scribes full-time

    Pros

    Scribing is objectively a fun job. The doctors, by and large, really appreciate having you there. I can't think of a doctor that ever caused any trouble with scribes, plus it's a great experience for pre-health careers, so Elite does give you the experience.

    Cons

    They are part of the movement to turn healthcare into a corporate-style job. Healthcare and corporations are mutually exclusive. As a regular scribe I didn't have to experience this, but as an onsite manager I definitely did. It was abundantly clear that they did not care one iota if the clinic's needs were met, as long as company policy was being followed. Did it matter that their policy directly interfered with the work at the clinic? No.

    Advice to Management

    A manager who didn't insist on following every rule to the letter, and who didn't micromanage the onsite team would be a huge plus. Honestly, I don't know if my review is reflective of Elite Medical Scribes as a whole, or if I just got unlucky with this one manager in particular.
