    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Medical Scribe Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If your in the medical field, this company has teamed up with many hospitals that can give you the experience you need working in the ER. At most of the hospitals Medical Scribe Systems works with, the Doctors are all very nice and are willing to teach you and help you with whatever you need. Also there is a lot of opportunity for advancement in position and pay.

    Cons

    The morning shift starts at 7AM and the graveyard shift ends at 3PM. They require you to work holidays.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get to work closely with a lot of providers including both MD's and PA's and can get great letters of recommendations from them.

    Cons

    The pay was minimum wage and the hours were not great.

    Advice to Management

    Pay scribes more. Most of us are students and would like higher salaries to pay for tuition and living expenses.

    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule once you have been scribing for a while.

    Cons

    Low pay. Not enough training. Sometimes you don't get a break and if you take one on a busy day the doctor are mad at you about it.

    Advice to Management

    Traveling scribes make more.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Medical Scribe Systems part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great experience in a healthcare setting, learning terminology and the flow of the emergency department. Exposure to a broad variety of clinical cases keeps the job interesting

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the pay rate with this company is somewhat lower than other scribe companies. Finding coverage in an emergency can be somewhat difficult

    I worked at Medical Scribe Systems part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Scribing, in general, is a good way for pre-medical students to gain entry level experience in the field of emergency medicine, anatomy and physiology, hospital environments, and medical decision making. However, there are no pros to working with Medical Scribe Systems according to what I have experienced.

    Cons

    Initial training is stressful, and you may be terminated if you do not pass successfully. When you begin bedside training, you work with a scribe trainer, and these trainings are not consistent. As a result, your scribing skills and knowledge will vary. After bedside training is completed, you may not immediately get shifts. I was given two shifts for the entire first two months, all late evening into overnight hours....

    Advice to Management

    If Medical Scribe Systems wishes to retain more of its scribes and reduce overall size and frequency of classroom trainings, they should consider improving the organization and quality of training. They should also stop essentially taking advantage of young pre-medical students looking for entry level clinical experience. Please, future pre-meds, consider a different company! Do not let this company take advantage of...
