What is health insurance like at LanguageLink?

Pros

They treat you well, as they should. They let you work in peace. HR lady is very nice and always has us doing activities that I appreciate. Compared to other language companies, this one is one of the best because it is not that big, so it still respects its employees.

Cons

Pay only increases from 80 to 90 cents a year. They offer paid vacation but, since they were bought by the miserable BIG Language Solutions company, they don't let you accumulate vacation time anymore; either way, they give us 4 weeks per year. They never hold meetings with the interpreters, so you don't know what's going on, ever. You don't know what the company is doing, what team you are in and what the other teams are doing, you are, pretty much, anonymous. BIG, the parent company, has the worst reputation among employees, but Language Link is a good company overall, I hope it doesn't get destroyed by the new owners. The health insurance they offer is extremely expensive.

Advice to Management

Don't let BIG change the way you treat your employees, no one likes that company, but you still are a good one. Think about increasing the pay rate and let us know what's going on. What clients we have, who's where. If we do a good job, let us know, your appreciation matters and motivates us.

Does LanguageLink have any mentoring programs?

Pros

Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing , nothing

Cons

The company pays their Latin interpreters 5 dollars per hour! ( remote job) 750 dollars a month if you don't absence ! We r talking about a full-time employment here! Here comes the worst besides not paying you the minium wage, they don't give their candidates a previous training ! How the company can expect a good performance from their candidates without training them? That's why most of candidates fail! They send you some videos for you to practice at home , they want bilingual Latin people so they can pay Latinos a misery! Plus they don't take on quialified interpreters because qualified interpreters are not gonna accept the offer! Furthermore the company's policy is very strict when it comes to their candidates , the company wants a non interpreter that memorizes everything without any previous training ( like a recording machine) so if you hestitate in one of ur renditions you are out honey although u interpreted ur rendition correctly . Besides after doing the test the company never notifys the candidates if they fail or even thank them for giving them their time . To conclude I would never ever recommend anybody to work here because of their low low low salary for Latinos and their bad managment.

Advice to Management

If u r looking for bilingual candidates ( not trained interpreters) give them a previous training instead of sending some random videos on Youtube! do you expect that the candidate passes the test without previous training? U play with people time and u don't even notify if the candidate failed the test!!! Shame on u!!! U Language Link know exactly why u don't hire trained interpreters because u pay 5 dollars per hour! No qualified interpreters will accept that misery wage! Besides u don't even pay break not even to mention holidaysssssssssss.U use people and then throw them like a pice of trash!
