It varies, can be very unpredictable. I've done 6, 9, and 12 hour shifts. Scribe America uses a scheduling model where usually 2/4 weeks you get lots of hours and the other 2 weeks you barely get any at all.

Answered

My interview was held over video chat, 30 minutes in length.

Includes a typing test - they email you the link to a test of their choosing and you screenshot and send back your test results. They are looking for at least 60-65 wpm, 75 + is considered impressive.

Some introductory questions about your schedule, iflexibility, availability, future vacation time, future goals, willingness to commute far (if applicable), do you want full time or part time, could you work weekends if needed, ect.

Situational based questions, such as:

Biggest challenges
A time you made a mistake at work
How would you react in an emergency

Answered

Was fairly quick after immunization record update. Interview, testing, training, testing, shadowing, and shift work.

Answered

Good. It is a great service. Just not for anyone who needs money.

Answered

Time off must be requested 2 months in advance. There are not paid vacation days but you accrue paid sick time in Massachusetts which I used for vacation days.

Answered

Left because the work environment was harming me. Constant criticism, gossip, doctor was rude. The pay wasn't worth the treatment.

Answered

Use scrubs as a uniform instead of polos. patients are more comfortable if we look like we belong in a hospital.

Answered

I always had interesting stories to share after working in the emergency room and I was proud to explain what a medical scribe was. Being a potential medical student, I was eager to learn and share my new knowledge from the job.

Answered

I work 3 12 hour shifts in the ED. There are other scribes that work a 9-5 in an urgent clinic.

Answered

My interview was 50% job orientation, 50% interview. A powerpoint about ScribeAmerica and a scribe's role, followed by a few quick questions about availability, commitment, and future plans. I wasn't asked any "what if's," and sort of felt like the interview was just to make sure I was a functional human being. Therefore I wasn't surprised when I got hired.

This might be because the entrance exam (medical terminology) and training period are talked about as being a much bigger filter for employees that they find suitable. I haven't started yet, so I can't talk to exam or training difficulty.
