Interpreter (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ONApril 23, 2014
The day involves going to a hearing and interpreting what is said into English. This job requires rapt attention and continous learning. There are not many people you meet at this job because you work alone, still at breaks you can go to the lunch room and talk "shop". The work is confidential and anything you hear may not be repeated ever.
Pros
self starting
Cons
not enough hours.

Mon évaluation de l'Immigration Canada
freelance accredited interpreter and translator (Former Employee) –  Toronto, Edmonton, Ottawa, Montréal, VancouverOctober 27, 2015
Environnement de travail agréable et valorisant. Respect du personnel et de ses compétences, valorisation du travail accompli, respect du secret professionnel.
Bonne interaction et bon dialogue avec les superviseurs.

Ce qui est avantageux c'est que l'on peut travailler avec tous les bureaux de l'immigration à travers le Canada dans toutes les langues de sa compétence chaque fois que des opportunités se présentent.

L'inconvénient le plus gênant est la discontinuité de l'emploi qui se règle sur les besoins du moment et se fait occasionnellement sur appel.
Une journée de travail dure souvent trois à six heures et commence à 8 h 30 ou 9 h 00 pour se terminer soit à midi ou à 16 h. Il y a une pause d'une heure entre 12 h et 13 h.

Les heures rémunérées sont au minimum 3 et au maximum 6. les heures supplémentaires s'ajoutent soit aux 3 heures de la matinée, soit aux 6 heures de la journée.
Pros
Rémunération sur un nombre d'heures préétabli, salaire supplémentaire de 50% par heure dès que ce nombre est dépassé, rémunération de longs trajets au kilométrage en cas d'un déplacement de plus de 35 km, paiement des salaires endéans un mois
Cons
Annulation de rendez-vous à la dernière minute, offres d'emploi occasionnelles.
