Pros

Supervisors really do care Training is adequate to thorough Ability to choose where you are placed Great way to improve Japanese, teach kids English, while learning Japanese culture first-hand Transportation and living arrangements taken care of for workers

Don't expect this to be a lifetime gig -- salary fluctuates very little Practically impossible to get time off (though you get over a month of summer vacation)

Advice to Management

Keep trying to differentiate Altia Central from the other dispatch companies

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Altia Central full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Altia Central provides training and teaching materials as part of a week-long intensive training session. The Altia Central staff is helpful and supportive of their ALTs. Altia Central provides its ALTs with more than enough media and flashcards to assist with lesson planning, and entertaining a classroom of middle school or elementary school students.

    Cons

    Altia Central has an obligation to send you to a location based on the needs of the various boards or education in central Japan, so some rural positions are quite unappealing. Vehicles are not provided for some rural positions

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the management would be to spend more time assisting ALTs in rural places where public transportation is less reliable.

    I worked at Altia Central as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Annual professional development events provided opportunities to compare and contrast pieces of flair with other ALTs.

    Cons

    I was asked to either be less public about my dating life or leave the company. Guess which one.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck.
