I have been working at LanguageLine Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You get to work from home, which means no extra spending on gas or work appropriate clothing, and the schedules are flexible.

Cons

There are no sick days, no paid vacation time, and no holidays either (so be prepared to work on Christmas and New Year's Day, which are the two busiest days of the year). You only get around $22 per month for phone service, so if it costs you more than that, you will have to pay the difference out of pocket. You also pay for your electricity usage and are required to have a computer (which you also have to pay for on your own). If you need to replace your headset and/or phone, you have to pay out of pocket first and then get reimbursed. You can only do that every two years, though, so if you have to replace anything before then, you are on your own. And you get all this for $8 an hour!

Advice to Management

If you are not willing to extend the same benefits that office workers have to those of us who do most of the work and earn you the money (aka: the interpreters), you should at least be nice and pleasant. Everyone I've dealt with (except for those people at IRC) is extremely rude and uneducated.

Other Employee Reviews for LanguageLine Solutions

  1. Reviewers are too critical and unreasonable

    Pros

    As my subject title indicates. But training pre-hiring is good.

    Cons

    Reviewers are way too difficult. It seems like they had to pick on something or else they are not doing their job.
