ER Medical Scribe (Current Employee) – Washington State – January 25, 2018
Unless you plan on going to medical school and need clinical hours and experience; I do not recommend the job.
Management is basically a joke; they will move up anyone to Trainer, Head Trainer, or Chief Scribe and will completely OVERLOOK those with tenure or more experience.
No team support; almost IMPOSSIBLE to get shifts covered.
You get the flu or are excessively vomiting? Too bad, still have to go in to work because there is no one to cover you.
You qualify for any discounts provided by Team Health.
I am sure others have had a great experience working for this company; however, I have not. I have found nothing but poor management skills and no job advancement.
This job is amazing if you need clinical skills as it does provide with great experience and gives you the chance to create close relationships with ED Physicians, nursing staff, hospitalists, . Also gives you a good view of what working in the ED is like and helps you get used to the environment.
You get paid overtime and do get holiday pay. But expect to work 40-50 hours a week because there is a high turn over rate for employees and a lot of time; multiple people will quit and leave several shifts open for the rest of the team to pick up.
Short turn arounds are expected. Also expect to work days and nights within the time span of 1 day off, if any.
No lunch breaks. No breaks at all. You can take breaks depending on the pace of the ED, but don't expect them.
experience for medical school, OT pay
no breaks, no lunch, no paid time off, almost never any coverage, no team support
