    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at BorderLink full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    the school you work normally are good.(*nothing relate to the company)

    Cons

    short notice that not going to sponsor your visa and not continue to employ you for next contract.
    low pay
    hid necessary information
    force to go far away to work (leave you with no choice)
    Always work overtime and no overtime payment.
    No pay raise ( no matter how many years)
    the work condition can be changed (when you negotiate the condition and when you sign the contract with them)
    non stop working in school without breaks... (even your lunchtime, but the company will deduct 1-hour break in your timesheet.
    so many grey areas that are not fair to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the fair salary to your employee not scam the employee.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at BorderLink in December 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining
