Excellent Place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Pacific Interpreters

ProsPacific is a mom and pop company graduating to corperate. The leads will fight for you and your job whenever you need it. They also allow you to vent, They are very personable and really good with giving recognition when needed. The importance of the job is awesome. The director of Operations started as a part time customer service agent. They pay is OK and the oppourtunity for advancement is there.

ConsThere is some super shady upper management. This is the first call center some of the upper managment has ever worked in. The center could be run way more efficiently, but due to egos, it will not. They run people ragged with overtime because they refuse to staff correctly. Borderline harass employees for Overtime...

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to do your job more efficiently. You are not maximizing profits they way you could be. Understand that your employees (especially since it is a small(ish) call center, are your bread and butter. Also, When your upper managment staff POINT BLANK lie, and you are aware of it. Take care of it immediately, upon hiring you all express that this is an "at will" employment. Handle your business like you run a corperation, not like its a back yard operation.
