Cyracom Interpreter Jobs
CyraCom International works with businesses, mostly government-sponsored organizations and healthcare providers, and helps out with phone conversations. If you speak a second language, Spanish being the most in demand, but there’s a need for other languages as well, you and CyraCom International might make a good pair.
There are two different ways you can work as a CyraCom Interpreter. They have some brick and mortar contact centers which are located in Arizona and New Mexico. The contact centers are a great choice if you’re the type of person who finds working at home distracting, or you need to spend a few hours a day with people you’re not related to.
If you enjoy working from home and not having to ever wear anything but comfy pajamas, you will be pleased to know that CyraCom International loves working with independent contractors. As an independent contractor, you can work from any state.
The great thing about working for CyraCom International is that not only will they job pay your bills, but you’ll also interact with all kinds of people. The company does warn that you need to be able to stay calm if a problem comes up or someone loses their temper or become flustered.
Paid Training as a Cyracom Interpreter
You already have to be fluent in your second language and your skills have to be conversational, but otherwise, no experience will be needed. If they feel like you will be a good fit for the company, CyraCom International is happy to pay for your training program. This makes CyraCom International a great way for you to earn money, get trained, and gain the interpretation experience you need before you will be seriously considered by other companies for higher paying interpretation and translation work.
Cyracom Interpreter Salary
After doing a bit a research and looking around, it looks like interperter salary base pay is anywhere from $13 to $19 an hour. Glassdoor states that there are options for cash bonuses of $2,400 – but I'm not sure if that is an ongoing incentive bonus. It seemed specific to certain locations and I'm not sure if it was an option for those that have work at home positions.
A salary in the range of $30,000 to $31,000 a year seems to be fairly accurate.
Possibility of Benefits for a Hired Cyracom Interpreter
If you only work part-time, it’s uncertain that you’ll qualify for benefits. However, if you become a full-time employee, you’re health insurance concerns will finally disappear. CyraCom International does an excellent job of providing each of their full-time employees with health, dental, and life insurance. You’ll also receive disability if something happens to you, making it impossible to work. You do have to work for CyraCom International for three months before you can collect benefits.
It’s a Great Time to Start
CyraCom International is a young company, but you shouldn't let that discourage you. They already have some experience under their belt and they’ve provided such a wonderful quality of service that they’re considered one of the fastest growing businesses in the country. Getting in with them now means that there’s a good chance that as they grow, you’ll move up the organization’s ladder.
What You Need
CyraCom International isn’t the kind of business who can just hire everyone who applies if you haven’t completed high school or gotten your GED they’ll overlook your resume.
While CyraCom International is happy to pay for your training, applicants that have some interpretation experience will be given a higher priority. In addition to being able to speak another language, you also need to be a really good listener.
