Overall Reviews at ScribeAmerica

Examiner | Portland, OR | Apr 14, 2020
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.
Associate | Philadelphia, PA | Apr 6, 2020
The pay
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
Emergency Department and Heart and Vascular ICU Scribe | Hershey, PA | Feb 27, 2020
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.
Medical Scribe | United States | Feb 19, 2020
Great opportunity for those interested in the medical field, would not recommend long-term advancement within the company
Pros: - 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. Cons: - 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.
Internal Medicine Physician | Cleveland, OH | Nov 9, 2019
ED Scribe
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.
ProsPhysician relationships
Conslittle breaks and low pay
Mentor | Orlando, FL | Sep 5, 2018
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.
Quality Assurance Analyst | Hollywood, FL | Jan 17, 2020
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.
Medical Scribe | Hollywood, FL | May 29, 2018
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
Senior Care Coordinator | Orlando, FL | Jul 26, 2019
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.

What advice would you give the CEO of ScribeAmerica about how to improve it?
Asked Nov 13, 2016
Please offer scribes merit-based rewards in terms of increasing both paid-vacation time and salary pay. Additionally, please also increase communication with regional managers and chief scribes to individual locations, because due to these two tiers of division, there is often a huge disconnect in terms of policy changes and “giving scribes a voice” to discuss things with HR. Additionally given both the health exposure risks and the daily stress of most scribes’ daily work life, I believe they should be offered similar resources such as an employee health nurse contact and potentially an online mental health counselor. Because we are not direct employees of either the hospital or clinical practice where we work, it may be difficult to seek treatment for work-related exposures that are specific to scribe. Finally, I also believe all employees, regardless of their rank in the company or salary, should receive some form of annual incentive either in terms of a bonus during the holiday times, just for their hard work with the company. Overall, I believe that the implementation of these changes will foreword produce a happier work place environment for all employees, and the economic and package incentives mentioned prior that scribes may gain as their time progresses may further increase the time that scribes choose to work for scribeamerica.
Answered Mar 26, 2020
Pay your scribes more. Physicians are charged $21/hr for scribes yet the average hourly salary for an ER scribe is $10/hr. Appreciate the people on the floor making your money. Chief scribes are expected to do so much (Recruiting, hiring, credentialing new hires, training, time cards, scheduling, maintaining compliance) but do not get compensated. Please show you care about your lower tiered employees

How are the working hours at ScribeAmerica?
Asked Jul 9, 2016
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 Dec 10, 2018
It all depends on your availability and assignment. You must work a minimum of two full days per week. From, there, it's all dependent on what's available to match your schedule. I have been working 7am-2:30/3pm M-Th with full-time availability but will be working T-F 8-5 in a new assignment. Most scribes will only work M-F clinic hours, but some programs have options to work evenings and weekends if that is what you're interested in!
Answered Jun 23, 2018
If you were to leave ScribeAmerica, what would be the reason?
Asked Jan 15, 2018
1. Emotional stress 2. Poor financial compensation, despite length of time with ScribeAmerica 3. Very-little-no sick leave, despite having to work in a clinical environment, where most scribes are daily exposed to viruses and illnesses 4. Lack of employee health resources with exception to annual TB test and preliminary drug screen
Answered Mar 26, 2020
Very rude, unsupportive managers and supervisors. Pay terrible. Trainer was of no help at all and downright verbally abusive.

How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at ScribeAmerica? What are the steps along the way?
Asked Aug 10, 2016
Was fairly quick after immunization record update. Interview, testing, training, testing, shadowing, and shift work.
Answered Mar 26, 2019
The entire hiring process should take approximately a month. There is an initial interview followed by classroom training and lastly by floor training.
