I worked at LanguageLine Solutions

Pros

The only benefit is that you work from home

Cons

When you take time off due to a family emergency or a sick child, you get reprimanded, even when you have a doctor's note. The sad part is that if you receive 3 warnings for absences (even if they are 100% justified) they let you go. There is NO flexibility whatsoever to balance work life and family life. They expect you to be there, PERIOD. No benetits, no health insurance and I was getting paid the minimum amount for high-quality work. I was there for a year until I got a job elsewhere. My recommendation to others who are looking to work as an interpreter there... DON'T it's a mistake.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your act together. It's unfair that the itnerpreters make close to minimum wage here in the US and you don't even offer benefits or vacation. Be more flexible, there are those of us who are moms and have obligations, children get sick, there are emergencies, etc., Be involved with those of us who are really working hard and are the heart of the company.

    Current Employee - Translator in Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at LanguageLine Solutions

    Pros

    Supposed flexibility. Work from home and potential of the earnings in a segment of this business where as a eastern European, i have a very few competitors.

    Cons

    Working hours, no benefits, lack of communication from management, response time from the management as well as reactions from direct line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start at the human level and you will begin to understand that the translators are the engine of this company and not the management.

    Current Employee - All-call Interpreter in Heredia (Costa Rica)
    Current Employee - All-call Interpreter in Heredia (Costa Rica)

    I have been working at LanguageLine Solutions full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good salary for Costa Rican standards
    Paid Vacation, 2 weeks per work year
    Monthly bonuses for attendance, performance, internet subsidy if you work from home and seniority
    It is a constant learning experience, and that is how it should be taken

    Cons

    No Holidays, this is very hard to keep a good family-work balance because we do not get any holidays, not American, nor Costa Rican, so specially if you have children it can be challenging. Spending Christmas morning at work while everyone is opening presents can really get you down,

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
