I have been working at Certified Languages Int'l full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Working from home in PJs
Great hourly rate
No commitment feel-you speak with management only if you need something.
They always send you a Holiday card.

Cons

No guarantee you will get calls.
Sometimes no calls for a whole 48hrs.
No career opportunities for interpreters.

Advice to Management

Why not hire from within. Why not let your more senior long standing interpreters grow in the industry.

    I worked at Certified Languages Int'l full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was in the call center and I really did enjoy working here. I was there for years. Working with the interpreters was fun and overall, the employees had a pretty amazing relationship with few hiccups. The hiccups were appropriately dealt with too. I started part-time and was went full-time and they were very flexible with my school, like if i needed a day off for finals. HR is amazing, IT guy is great, the owner is super outgoing and friendly. Good benefits for qualifying employees. The 401k is employer matched up to a percentage, offered healthcare and dental. Pay is fair and when I was there, there was a pretty good bonus system.

    Cons

    Very scheduled, because it has to be. All lunches and breaks are meticulously scheduled because it's just that kind of job that required it. It's not necessarily a con as much as it is necessary. You don't be making your own hours is all. Not an ideal place for career growth as there just isn't anywhere to grow into thought the job security if good because they are growing.

    I have been working at Certified Languages Int'l as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everything, you work at home, no supervisors nagging you all day long, no set schedule.
    Being treated as a responsible adult.
    Very nice management team, always willing to help.
    Paid on time every month -not like other companies where you have to call once and again asking for your check, nice amount of calls, you never get bored.

    Cons

    No direct deposit. No rate increase per minute, even after a few years working for them.

    Advice to Management

    We would appreciate direct deposits instead of paper checks, or at least being paid every 2 weeks instead of once a month. Please increase our per minute rate a few cents every year.
