    Former Employee - Telephonic Interpreter in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at Language Services Associates

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Cons

    One major downside is ridiculously low pay rate for an over-the-phone interpreters. I have contracts with six other agencies, and LSA is definitely offering the lowest per minute rate. We, interpreters are here for money, not the charitable assignments...

    Advice to Management

    You need to overhaul your pay rate system. You cannot pay the same rate for a seasoned and experienced OPI in a high demand language pair and an unexperienced novice.
