Job to gain experience or as side job. No stability as it depends on the volume of call outs. Company says that the cover travel expenses but I could not see this reflecting on my pay too much.

Looking for another job opportunities due to you won’t meet your financial needs . Also you would have a sense of unfairness due to your actual salary and the amount of effort you put in don’t match at all.

Pros:
1. Flexibility in the job, you can take the job if you are free or tell our super coordinators Rebecca or Alina and they will replace an other one in a jiffy.

2. They make sure to balance both inbound and outbound jobs, so we are getting a decent pay end of the month.

3. They pay you right and on the right day as promised.

4. As part of you job, you will get an entry to many government organisations and various other public related organisations, where you just do not do your job but get different types of exposure and experience.

Cons:

1. For inbound jobs, the travel cap in the bus is 7 Euros a day, which should be provided to us. Outbound jobs, the mileage to be calculated in Kilometres and not

Miles.

It provides great flexibility of schedules and times. It offers different opportunities and I have had the chance to meet many people from different walks of life.

This has been one of the busiest places I ever worked. It is challenging but time goes fast and there is huge flexibility regarding your working hours. You can easily arrange your working hours with the manager by starting early in the morning and finishing early in the afternoon. Everyone is friendly and always trying to help each other. There is no competition in the office, unlike my previous job, which makes the day go smoothly and creates less stressful working environment.
My salary is good and based on your performance there are lots of opportunities within the company.

I am happy that I found the right place to work and will stay here unless something drastic will change.
Pros
Flexible working hours
Cons
Busy place

Poor rates of pay. Not always prompt in paying. Somewhat disorganised. Deadlines tight at times. Inconsistent work available.
Lady is courteous by email and phone.

I have been working for Word Perfect Translations as an interpreter and translator for the last 4.5 years.

Every day is different and I could be interpreting for HSE, Courts Services, Solicitors, Department of Justice, etc. It is very busy and I love attending interviews at the Refugee Protection Office. These interviews last for a good few hours and also in the evening/weekends I am able to translate lots of documents/files. My monthly income is around € 2800. I really enjoy the work but you need to be ready and able to put up the hours. I prefer the flexibility this job gives you and can pick and choose and say "no" to the project managers at any time. You need to be fast and work around the clock. If you are lazy or a moaner this job is not for you.
Pros
The project managers are very helpful
Cons
Long hours but worth it

I worked outside the premises of the company, as I work as an interpreter. That means, that I go to The Courts, Garda Stations, Hospitals, Social Welfare Offices to interpret form Polish to English and from English to Polish. I do like this job, however it does not happen very often.
Pros
good rate
Cons
very little work

A typical day as an interpreter would be to go to a hospital where someone needs translation in order to communicate with the staff.
Advantages- it a fun job, always meeting new people, always on the move

Disadvantages- it's only a part-time job and you cannot count on it, because they only call when they need you.
