I worked at BorderLink full-time
Helpful and supportive staff(some not all and also depends on certain situations)
Able to offer a variety of ES/JHS positions
Help with accommodation and the filling out of forms and documents required during the first few weeks in Japan.
Training lasts a good amount of time before initially starting at your school.
Feel more like someone who is there to fill a role instead of an actual teacher.
If there are any problems they tend to deal with them between the school and themselves and notify the teacher last of all.
On occasion they can go back on their word or rephrase something written in the contract to avoid taking any blame or responsibility if there is a issue.
Advice to Management
Think less about how Borderlink is seen as a company and more about the people who are there to teach for Borderlink.
I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at BorderLink in December 2015.
I applied online. The process took a little less than a month. There were 2 interviews done over Skype, but they had to reschedule my second interview because they forgot that we had a date and time scheduled. Overall, it wasn't a bad interview experience. A good majority of the questions focused on having you explain why you want to be a teacher, what sort of previous teaching experience you possess, and why you specifically chose Japan. There was a portion of the initial screening that tested your Japanese language ability, so be prepared for that if you claim to have studied the language.
Reasons for Declining
For personal reasons, I had to decline the job offer.
