    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Asian Services in Action part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    if you are Hispanic and female despite lack of qualifications you will work.

    Cons

    If you interpret in Spanish and are not Latino they discriminate against you; racist basically. They serve the Juvenile and adult courts of Cleveland and have few if any State Certified Interpreters. Since they are the 'go to' source for interpreting in these courts the courts it appears are not abiding by Federal Law which states that a court should attempt to hire a State Certified Court Interpreter before resorting to a less qualified interpreter. They capture the difference in pay between a certified interpreter and the rate they pay theirs.

    Advice to Management

    Find a manager of interpreting that knows how to manage and is certified in legal interpreting in the State of Ohio

    I have been working at Asian Services in Action as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    self confident, and keep learning new things including new terminology and get with all people cultures...

    Cons

    miss understood with people who have special mind in their custom... keep repeating to customers or patients the same thing all the time...

    Advice to Management

    To enhance interpreters with advance training...and be equal with chances to gain more experience .
