      I worked at Language Services Associates for more than a year

      Pros

      You can work from home.

      Cons

      While you are working from home and set your time as available for any given amount of time, and you cannot do anything else during that time, you only get paid in cents per minute interpreted. So, you set yourself as available for 4 hours, but you will end up getting paid only about 25% of your available time.

      That depends on the need for particular language and the hours logged in

      Positive Outlook

      I have been working at Language Services Associates full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Motivation: Management constantly motivates their employees though emails, chat and over the phone Team Work: Interpreters help one another all the time Glossary: Interpreters can profit from the glossaries and add their own Resources: Website with tons of useful information QA

      Cons

      Rates are too low for a medical interpreter position Not enough preparation/training, only a few days. It is more of a day to day training. You learn by try and error. Equipment makes it hard to understand callers. It does not only depend on the company itself but on their customers.

      Advice to Management

      Increase the interpreter's rates. Keep up the good job in motivating interpreters
