hard to balance
every month's schedule is new, there are no patterns except for the fact that unless you have a "excuse" to not work nights then you will be randomly given night shifts, I personally had 6 in one month. There is also no evening or night differential pay so no one applies for nights making it a unnecessary situation. Obviously you get to work with the doctors and see what they do, so what's hard to balance is if this is worth it or not to you. They will always ask you to work at a location super far away also then when you refuse they will make you a better offer (location wise). Overall the company likes to play games to get young excited hopeful premed students to do a lot of work for as little money as possible. They also hire scribes on the floor as managers so they have to work the swing shifts, get paid like garbage, and are responsible for all of the other scribes.

The pay and benefits are not as good as the amount of work and hours we do as a scribe in the ER. We do a lot of work and are looked down on by some people making us feel insignificant

High paced low paying job
The job itself is a wonderful opportunity for experience. It's one on one experience with a provider working directly with the patients. However, you're paid no where even close to the amount that you should be making for the amount of work that you're doing. I've been making $10 per hour, and that's exactly what I was making the day I was hired (I've been there for two years now). You're worked until you're tired and in pain. I currently work in an ER and I've typed to the point where I've almost passed out because you see patients back to back for 8 hours, with no time to take a break or even to walk off the floor to use the bathroom. Your computer will most likely be trash and not well maintained. Management doesn't care whatsoever (not including the chief) about the scribes or what they have to say/need. A lot of the time, you'll be yelled at by providers for your flaws and not being perfect (despite taking their recommendations in). At my site, we had an issue with assault from one of the providers to multiple scribes (including myself) and management wanted nothing to do with it. It took almost 6 months before someone said something to him, when we all threatened to quit if nothing was done about it.

Great opportunity for those interested in the medical field, would not recommend long-term advancement within the company
- At the entry career level, second to none for networking and clinical exposure.
- Travel trainer was a great opportunity for management experience and traveling; housing, flights, and some transportation was paid for.
- Pay is not worth for long-term sustainability.
- Management is hit or miss; some are accommodating and exemplify strong leadership traits. Others will likely go against your preferences/ideas and inconvenience you significantly if it helps them meet their deadlines.

This is a fun job and a perfect stepping stone for medical school. Be aware that you should not be applying for this job unless you are doing so for the experience and not because of the pay. Exposure to emergency medicine, trauma, and clinical medicine is the biggest driver as to why I stay regardless of the low pay.
Conslittle breaks and low pay

Great way to stack up clinical hours
it's a reat way to stack up clinical hours, but the company itself is not the best in the world. don't even think of calling out, you will be threatened to loose your job, even with a doctors note.

Extremely poor pay
Bottom line - extremely low pay My reward for doing an excellent job was harder practitioners and no increase in salary Benefit package is worst I’ve ever seen (5 days mixed PTO bucket a year, use it or lose it, no holidays)
Regional Manager | Louisville, KY | Dec 14, 2018
In all honesty, this is an ok job for someone who is wanting to get some experience for medical school. Not for someone who wants to make a life long job. Upper management in some regions do not support their staff and don't listen to concerns.

the most enjoyable part of the job
the most enjoyable part of the job, is being able to interact with physicians from around the united states, and to see how different each provider is from another in regards to how they expect their documentation

Great work experience, poor management
Work environment was great. CTAs and nurses worked as a team with each other. There was good communication for the most part with everyone.
Management was not that way. There was a lack of communication among management that affected everyone. At the beginning, they put out schedules maybe the Friday or even Sunday before the week began. Not until recently did they put out the whole months schedule. There was a lack of communication between managers, and also a lack of communication from the managers to everyone else.
