I worked at LanguageLine Solutions part-time

Pros

Works from the comfort of home.

Cons

They charge 2.5-3.9 USD per minute but only pay interpreters less than a quarter per minute. They're buying out smaller companies like Pacific Interpreters and changing their interpreters to "employees" status, meaning being forced to work fixed hours, no paid vacation, no sick days, $12-14/hour, and crappy useless health insurance. It's better to wait table than working for them. Many highly qualified interpreters are leaving due to LLS's abuse and greediness. Please don't use LLS for your language needs, people who have no choice would stay and they're not happy. Don't expect good quality of customer service/ interpretation from unhappy interpreters.

Advice to Management

Stop your greediness, don't use interpreters like a factory worker. Unhappy employees mean poor service.

    I have been working at LanguageLine Solutions full-time

    Pros

    We provide great services that are needed and important to the communities we serve

    Cons

    Language Line has been acquiring companies and not integrating them well, so the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing.
    Employees are not valued or treated well. Great people are getting fired or just leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and find out what is going on, determine best practices, and then move forward.
