Pros

It's easier to get hired since no one is full-time, and the atmosphere is probably a little bit lighter as a result of that. For most people it's a second job, and since they pay well above minimum wage, you can do pretty well as long as you have a full time job, or if you are in school and live at home. I thought most of the supervisors were pretty nice. You were definitely expected to not slack off, and they verified that through checking your call statistics. That was actually a good thing, because it meant that everyone was sharing the work equally (unlike some places I've worked, where a small percentage of the people do a large percentage of the work). The coordinators were also all very helpful and they are good coworkers. LSA does some cheesy things to raise employee morale, and I appreciated it. I think they did a good job creating an image of the nice atmosphere that they wanted for the company and for the coordinators.

Cons

You can only work part-time. Other than that, I think it's a perfectly fair exchange in terms of labor for dollars.

    Pros

    Ability to be trained and work from home. From the comfort of your house you can work in a highly regarded career without the expense of a wardrobe, commute, gas and parking expense. This company will train and give you all the resources necessary to perform well.

    Cons

    This company offers one of the lowest per minute salary regardless of the ability, training and documentation required to perform it. Many of their interpreters have court qualified status, have been working for them for some time, are in the list of several judges and companies as preferred interpreters, have bachelors, masters and even PhD;s but their pay continues to be the same as recently hired, non-professional, non-degreed interpreters.

    Advice to Management

    Need to revisit per minute offer based upon years of service, experience and interpretation quality and accomplishments. Everyone is the same across the board.
