    I have been working at Eriksen Translations full-time

    Pros

    I really enjoy working at Eriksen in large part due to the staff. Everyone here is a pleasure to work with - friendly, helpful, and talented.

    People here take pride in the work they do. Our account and project managers sincerely care about their clients – and this shows through in the type of service they provide and the quality of work they deliver. Everyone has a real passion for language!

    I’ve never before worked with such a diverse group of people, who originate from many different countries and speak a wide variety of languages. They are always surprising me with interesting pieces of their different cultures, from Brazilian Brigadeiros pastries on Valentine’s Day to the traditional holiday party glögg.

    Like any small business, people wear many hats, which present great opportunities to learn. And I really enjoy working for a company that does positive work to help others. We help NYC communicate with non-English speaking communities, we provide interpreters to help people obtain quality health care – these are all things to feel good about!

    Cons

    This is a competitive industry, and to succeed it takes hard work. It sometimes requires putting in extra hours when projects demand, as well as a commitment to providing extra high levels of customer service. (Especially true for a small business.) This can at times be a challenge, but it also creates a great environment in which to learn and grow.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being supportive of your staff, listening to their ideas, and nurturing their talents.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Eriksen Translations in May 2016.

    Interview

    Initial contact with HR rep, but owner soon joined email conversation. We set up a time for an onsite interview, but owner asked me to first fill out a detailed print application - after I had already done so online. I emailed that I would complete the application, if I wanted to pursue the position, following the interview. They had my resume already! Well, that "I prefer not" didn't sit well with the boss, so my onsite was promptly cancelled. Unprofessional.
