    I worked at Interac full-time

    Pros

    Great help setting up apartment, utilities, cellphone, bank account. Training was memorable and lengthy. Nice consistency in scheduling (you know your overall schedule at the start of every year for a year). Genuinely want you to have a good experience at your schools (which you are very integrated into). Facebook group that connects Interac ALTs all over Japan. Compared to experiences of friends from other ALT companies, mine at Interac seemed superior.

    Cons

    Team teaching is frowned upon, so you either have to do it on the down low or learn to teach completely on your own. Taking vacations outside of the appointed holidays in Japan is a touchy subject. Little assistance in the way of non-school/housing related happenings; you must do these things independently: home country taxes, visiting government offices for some forms (visa renewal, moving, etc) and moving back home (learn some Japanese for these situations).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dedicated translation service for non-Japanese speaking ALTs for documents, hospital visits, etc. Improvement on the usage of paid holidays.

    Interview Details

    Dispatched from Teach Away in America. From what I've heard, Interac now mainly hires people already in the country, and they have an aggressive touring campaign as they are the #1 leading provider of ALTs in Japan. Teach Away process involved an online application, phone screening, English language proficiency test, video recorded teaching demo, and behavioral questions
