Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Nice job if you know a few languages and like to help people. Unfortunately, it cannot be your full-time job as there are not a lot of demand for translation jobs (depends on your specific language requirements).

No regular work opportunities unfortunately

They do not give regular work. They are really rude whenever I’ve tried to call them, not helpful nor are they accommodating i providing more regular work. I have been employed since November and only had 3 jobs sent via the portal.

Worst company ever

No customer service at all I worked there and I asked for a reference they refused to help. The idea was to cover a hospital assignment then and call the office regarding the job nobody helps

Pros

Many hours to cover

Cons

Speaking highly of themselves

A typical day is to check your email before anything to see if you have received any email. You need to check the right address if you have already a booking for the day.

Workable and existing place to work

After a few months of working in this company, I can say it is a useful service for people who want to be self employed and for people who have got children.The most enjoyable part of the job is dealing , communicating and meeting with different people; Also the staff resolve problems in a short matter of time with good service, finally the monthly payments are due on time.

Staff is really pushy

I had the "pleasure " of working with them. They pay less than any other agency and the staff working there is really unprofessional and pushy. They were actually forcing you to take a job, even if you would say that you can't do it

productive and fun workplace

i had an incredible exprience in the global tranlation service. i had to work 6 hours and no more. i have learned so many thing, for example how make in order the spread sheet, how to upload the appointments of the interpreters of that day or other days. it was not too big the place but it was alright for work. i had lots of help from every staff member and they are really kind. there was not any hard part for the work because i really enjoyed work there. One of the day during work experience a boy came by and he was an italian who wanted to translate his italian results into english for the school. that was really fun because i had to translate it. i enjoyed to work with them.

Environnement pas très sain

Expérience mitigée chez GTS : J'ai fait un stage de 3 mois dans cette entreprise, j'étais partie sur 5/6 mois mais ai eu l'occasion de partir plus tôt, heureusement. Peu d'accompagnement par l'équipe dirigeante, une période de mon stage s'est faite avec : 7 autres stagiaires, les 2 patrons et une employée. Abus de stagiaires, non rémunérés bien sûr et envoyés comme des interprètes classiques en mission, sans suivi.

Pros

Confiance rapide pour les missions d'interprétariat

Cons

Aucune rémunération. Comportement à la limite du harcèlement.

V. Professional and straight forward team

V good company. No issues at all. Worked with them for many years. They have strict procedures in place but as long as you are serious in your job as a interpreter then you will have “zero” issues with GTS. Such nice people to work with. Highly recommend

Pros

Professional company

Cons
