    Russian Interpreter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at LanguageLine Solutions.

    Interview

    Interview was in the target language, the recruiter was a native speaker. Very arrogant and snobbish approach. No "how" or "how are you?", straight to business about them hiring employees not contractors with no benefits, no vacation and $7/hour pay. Seriously? At that point she lost me. The pay structure is cumbersome to make you believe that you will actually make more (calls over 20 min are paid at base $7/hour plus $13 premium (proportionate to the length of the call). If you happen to wait for another call for an hour, that hour will be paid at $7. She said they only hire highly skilled professional interpreters... For $7? You can find those? No professional growth, nada, zip, zero (recruiter scoffed at me when I asked that). 15 min into the interview, I was drilled and grilled on interpretation skills. The recruiter was giving me sentences in English (with rather heavy accent - go figure), I was supposed to translate consecutively. After 4 sentences and her constantly picking at my Russian (hello, I was born there), I quit and said I had no more interest. Hostile environment. Very unfriendly. I got an impression of this being a language sweatshop. Can't image how somebody can do this day to day in this condescending atmosphere!

    Director of Global Recruitment Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Monterey, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at LanguageLine Solutions (Monterey, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with the recruiter then an interview with the VP of HR and recruiter again. I did not have the VP of HR contact information so I reached back out to the recruiter via email to thank both her and the VP of HR for their time and she never responded back. Got a generic email over a month later saying that I did not get the job. The interview process is very unprofessional. To have someone wait over a month for feedback and then to not even respond back to the thank you email was very rude. The recruiter could have at least thanked me for my time. Very rude and unprofessional company but after seeing the low ratings I am not surprised.
