How hectic is working as an interpreter?

I think I can do it. But my aunt is an interpreter around the clock. She says its hard to be on call. Are there any regular hours for working as one? Any experience anyone?

  • Well, we used to be part of the deaf community, where we lived, cause we worked with the deaf at church. I know the interpreters there were always on call,but they got paid very well. But, they had to go everywhere, court, doctors, you name it. Not sure what kind of intepreter you are talking about, but that's the only one I've really been part of.

  • My cousin in law does it for the Italian consulate in Chicago. She just LOVES it, despite the hectic scheduling. She LOVES her job.
