Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Pacific Interpreters as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Nothing is positive about this company- I feel sorry for the actual founders... Now that a company has bought them out -it is about the money not the service they provide!

Cons

No one they hire is actually an interpreter- staff is sub par and communication = ZERO
They say to companies that they are all about the company - they are not!

Advice to Management

Do not try to pay me 30-40 cents less a minute than other companies!! This is why you get sub par interpreters---qualified interpreters would NEVER work for this company.

    Pros

    Pacific is a mom and pop company graduating to corperate. The leads will fight for you and your job whenever you need it. They also allow you to vent, They are very personable and really good with giving recognition when needed. The importance of the job is awesome. The director of Operations started as a part time customer service agent. They pay is OK and the oppourtunity for advancement is there.

    Cons

    There is some super shady upper management. This is the first call center some of the upper managment has ever worked in. The center could be run way more efficiently, but due to egos, it will not. They run people ragged with overtime because they refuse to staff correctly. Borderline harass employees for Overtime...

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to do your job more efficiently. You are not maximizing profits they way you could be. Understand that your employees (especially since it is a small(ish) call center, are your bread and butter. Also, When your upper managment staff POINT BLANK lie, and you are aware of it. Take care of it immediately, upon hiring you all express that this is an "at will" employment. Handle your business like you run a corperation, not like its a back yard operation.

    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, as a contractor you are your own boss, you work when you wnat, though they call you sometimes in the middle of your free time to ask you to log in because they cannot ahndle their call volume, go and figure who is going to say "no" to more money?

    Cons

    There is no career development, a lot of talk, they say the do train you, but they can't it would be illegal if they did. There is a lot of politics in this place, it is a good gig for the time being. No cost to the interpreter but no gain either...

    Advice to Management

    MAke interpreteers employees they you can train us, then you can BS everybody out there.
