One thing about this program is if you are planning to go to do anything in the medical field it helps tremendously. The job can be fast paced but it's hard-work because it's legal people job and it's someone medical note. One big pet peeve is that they don't pay you enough. I used to work at Pink Secret and they paid me so much more. The job is a great learning experience but for pay to pay the bills they are truly lacking and need to do better. $10 is not cutting for the amount of work and stress the job brings.
Student exploitation. Very underpaid and the hours were hard. Only positive experience was the knowledge and exposure attained from the work environment.
The experience I’ve gained can’t be compared to anything else. My coworkers are always willing to help out and the doctors and providers are always respectful and willing to teach you anything you are interested in.
The experience and knowledge gained from working at scribeamerica was immeasurable. But their training is inconsistent and they do not pay you well.
This job provides me with a good balance of schedule flexibility, doing something I love, and learning every shift.
ScribeAmerica is a great company for students that want to start getting in the medical field. Being a scribe, you will learn tons of medical information and other information to start learning about life in the medical field.
Working with the doctors I have been working with for almost 2 years has been one of the best experiences of my life. I could not have asked for a better way to see into a doctor's life, practice, and the real experience of what being a physician is all about. The company I work through is a little under appreciative of their staff, and it can be difficult with constantly changing managers, while the other downside is the low pay. However, I appreciate the ability to work almost entirely autonomously.
I have been with the company for almost a year now. When I first started working with this company I worked in the ED. This was a very stressful environment to be in, but the amount of knowledge I gain was worth the crazy hours and stress. I have recently moved to the OP setting, and while this has very consistent hours, the potential to learn a wide variety of information is limited. If you are looking to learn more about healthcare, this is the perfect job. However, scribes are severely underpaid for the amount of training and work they have to do.
I have had a very good time working for ScribeAmerica. The onboarding process was very thorough and I feel very pleased with my position in office.
I like the experiences that I gain and will be able to put on applications. I would like it if pay were higher as it is not an easy job ad requires skill and most employees have very high school costs. I would also prefer if availability did not have to be submitted so early. I don't know what I am doing in a month and a half most of the time.
Neat company to work for, especially if you get in a good office. A lot of autonomy and the higher-ups tend to leave you alone except for regular check-ins (do your job well and no one bothers you). Great on a resume, especially for med school applications. If you're expecting to make any money whatsoever, do not work here... I always had to remind myself, it's for the experience, not the money. 4/5.
Great company to work for! 90% of our upper management team promoted from within so there is great opportunity for advancement.
Pros: The experience gained and exposure to healthcare is the best takeaway from this position.
Excellent exposure to the health field and medical professionals. Plenty of room for advancement. Valuable experience for individuals who desire a profession in healthcare.
I love being a scribe. They provide very comprehensive training. Unfortunately, they profit majorly off of their scribes. I have seen invoices from hospitals that they are contracted with and they could definitely afford to pay scribes more than minimum wage. If you are lucky enough to have a good manager/ supervisor, this is an amazing company to work for, but unfortunately, that is not the case for everyone. Overall, I think they care about their scribes and do what they can to support them while still operating as a major corporation. Becoming eligible for benefits as a scribe is almost impossible.
It's a great opportunity to learn more about the profession. However, I do feel sometimes the company neglects its employee or care too little.
ScribeAmerica offers great and paid training course for all new employees. Continued training and scribe meetings are paid as well. The pay is not quite equal to the amount of work scribes are expected to do, but you learn so much every day on the job. Overall a good company to work for.
