    I have been working at BorderLink full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The management is under control. They have done a good job of keeping me informed of what is going on in the company.

    They are mostly hands-off when it comes to teaching.

    Cons

    Pay is not great.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BorderLink in October 2012.

    Interview

    I applied on the company website. After passing the first screening, I had two Skype interviews. First one was in English and the the second one was in Japanese to rate my skills.

    Interview Questions

    • If you don't speak Japanese don't worry about that, but if you have a TEFL or Japanese skills you are likely to get a hire pay.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate, but I got an offer via email and was told to respond within 7 days with a reply.
