I worked at Altia Central full-time
Lots of support
Good teaching materials
Taxes/insurance taken care of
They give you a car (if you need one)
Very few opportunities for advancement (like most teaching jobs in Japan)
Salary is good for ALT work and fine for a single person, it would be difficult to support a family with it though.
Advice to Management
I think management does the best they can... there are a lot of cultural differences between foreign teachers and Japanese schools and I think management bridges that gap well.
I applied online. I interviewed at Altia Central.
Took several months to go through, and even then nothing concrete in terms of information. The interviews themselves are very easy. They're looking for fun people who can survive in Japan.
