Great place to work despite poor advancement
Communication Assistant (Former Employee) – Moorhead, MN – January 18, 2018
By far, this was the most rewarding place I have worked. By working here, I was able to hone and develop skills I need for further advance in the workforce.
Of course, there are some callers that don't respect your, and there are some businesses that hear "relay call" and don't understand that a deaf individual is trying to reach them. It is important to remain calm while working at Relay.
Typically, try to arrive a few minutes prior to the start of your shift so the computers can boot up and start working. You'll get to choose a cubical, read quietly, talk quietly, or do homework. I highly recommend this job for those that want to work through school.
MN Relay is a 24/7 hour operation, so there are plenty of options for schedules. The downside to this, however, is that MN Relay is on a sonority-first basis. The people that have been there the longest get to pick what schedule they want. The new hires have to take what is given to them. Swapping shifts is easy, though.
relaxed environment, supportive staff
low pay, poor advancement opportunities
