Not bad to learn and leave. Opportunity comes only to people who work hard. A lot of times you will need to collect unemployment if there are no cases to work on.

I got trained. I work with people who always helped me. I feel part of a team and making a difference. Good job but you work by contract. Once contract is over, you wait for new contracts and there is no way to be sure how long it will take for new contract.

The amount linguists get paid is the biggest pro. The work itself is interesting so that's a plus. It's project-based so unless you travel (frequently and have to know the right people) work is too inconsistent to justify staying. The company just wants to nickel and dime everything. If you travel they don't pay per diem or gas, they want to make you travel in your own vehicle (so if anything happens it's on you), they even want you staying with family and friends so they don't have to pay for a hotel. You are also less likely to be sent for travel work if you ask for rentals or a flight. If you can't leave when they want you to, they'll go with someone who will. Coworkers are usually nice but it does get competitive. Some will try to make you look bad to make themselves look better. Also, they're always pushing to hire but there's already not enough work for their current employees. Also forget about sick pay. If you aren't on a case you can't use your sick pay. If you have any overtime and get sick you can't use your sick pay. So you basically accumulate all this sick pay and never get to use it because you're never working or always working.

There is only work for a few privileged people. They should stop advertising job positions because there is no work for new hires. Too many supervisors. Strict rules but with double standards.

Where to begin. Terrible supervisors. The rules don’t apply to everyone. Unethical and toxic work environment. There is a rule in the employee handbook about no fraternizing and the supervisor is dating one of the clients… yet no higher ups seem to raise an eyebrow. Supervisors are toxic. No real leadership. It’s been very slow for a while and many people sitting at home, yet the company continues to hire new people. Gossip and favoritism are rampant. This is NOT a full time job. It pays okay ( with inflation and gas prices I don’t even know if it’s that competitive) You can’t opt out of their insurance and they will take the insurance away if you don’t work enough hours. They have a very unstable review of your work process. No motivation, no leadership. When days off are requested and approved you get punished with hours taken away from your schedule. This is a very cool job but was completely ruined by the leadership they picked. There is no room for growth and interestingly enough personal friends of the supervisor were hired to be team leaders.

They had me recite back the job description word for word and got frustrated when I hesitated on some exact points such as they may work longer hours on weekends but not always. Them, some “what would you do” scenarios. Finally, tell me how you handled conflict, etc (in Spanish)
