    Pluspunten

    Working far from the headquarters means you can adapt the curriculum to the needs of the classes with more teacher support and minimal interference. The company does take the time to make sure you are safe in case of disasters, and are available to assist with questions.

    Minpunten

    Almost no support from headquarters. The company occupies a liminal space so there can be some disconnect in how to interact with supervisors. (Even though I majored in Japanese culture I was often unsure of how to approach a subject- as an American or in the Japanese style; because my bosses were frequently Half or had lived in Japan for 20 years+) Additionally, the company will rarely stand up for you when there are unreasonable expectations.

    Advies aan management

    Please make the effort for your employees because they are what runs your service. I brought in a friend who had a very different experience, and received much more support, so perhaps there could be more consistency across sectors.

    Pluspunten

    + Help you get started
    + Intense first week training
    + Visa

    Minpunten

    Advies aan management

    Don't treat everyone the same increase pay based of performance get rid of bad ALTs and equal pay all year around.

    Waardeert Directeur

    Ik heb een voltijdbaan gehad bij Interac (Langer dan een jaar)

    Pluspunten

    Relatively easy work. I simply assisted the Japanese teachers of English in implementing English lessons during classes in two junior high schools and one elementary school in a small town in rural Japan.

    Minpunten

    Only one con. Interac at times did not pay my salary on time. Apart from that issue, I think Interac was a great company to work for.

    Advies aan management

    Please pay your ALTs on time

    Pluspunten

    Decent hours depend on where you are placed. One area let me leave when classes were done, another area made me stay until until 16:45 every day even if I didn't have classes all afternoon. Some teachers are nice and will involve you in school activities, other schools you you're made feel like a piece of furniture.

    They do look after your housing and getting you settled into your area.

    Days off if you're made work on a Saturday.

    Minpunten

    Terrible pay. The advertised salary is only if you work every day of that month. You wont be scheduled to work everyday, maybe holidays or your schools didn't request you. Expect tough times after holidays.

    Advies aan management

    Treat your employees like adults.

    Pluspunten

    Pay is on time
    Can have a second job
    Plenty of free time to Study Japanese

    Minpunten

    Need a second job
    Pay is trash after the first year
    Ignores Japanese laws
    Doesn't Pay ALTs their worth. The Board of Education pays double for ALTs and the company pockets the majority of it
    Company takes the side of the schools/teachers/Board of Education over the ALT
    No real paid leave
    No pay over summer, winter, spring

    This job is good for ONE YEAR, maybe two max. Remember guy there are other ways to get to Japan that don't involve working here. There are tons of different companies and jobs which aren't ALT-based. Take more time than I did researching in order to avoid, not disappointment, but I feeling of missed opportunities.

    Advies aan management

    Please pay your ALTs more money, stop being so sneaky with your contracts and forcing ALTs onto random assignments. Just stop taking advantage of the stupidly young new graduates who join the company

    Pluspunten

    They prepare you very well. If you're new to ESL teaching (and even if you're not) take lots of notes at orientation!
    They give you all the lessons. (Their lessons are boring, but you at least you don't have to start from scratch. Just take their lessons and add some nice games and activity.)
    There is even a database (which most teacher don't uses) with tons of lesson plans, activity, cards you can print, worksheets, even game board you can print. (It's in their google-folder.)

    Minpunten

    The award, which is just a printed certificate that says, "Hey, you did a great job" is handed out arbitrarily. I've seen people who worked their butt off not get one, and people who can barely walk and chew gum get one. (Although, 60% of the time, the right people get it.) Also, the award really means nothing. It's just a piece of paper.

    The pay is not bad, but its not a good as the JET Program.

    Unlike the JET Program, there is no additional health insurance. But you do have health insurance, the national health insurance which every legal resident of Japan gets. It's pretty decent; just not fantastic.

    Lovely opportunity to work with kids in a wonderful country.

    Minpunten

    Management can be very nitpicky and are more concerned with maintaining the illusion of well-being with their clients (schools) than you. You are very easily replaceable and not
