I worked at Ittti Japan full-time
- The pay is great for the hours worked
- If you like working evening hours you can have lots of free time to explore Japan
-The curriculum has it's kinks, but it's usually fun and workable for the age group.
-Training is more thorough than other Eikaiwa
-Kids can be badly behaved
-In spite of the emphasis on "safety," having a single teacher in charge of a batch of small kids is not a safe arrangement
-Japanese coworkers are often overworked
Advice to Management
Take better care of the Japanese staff, and more readily provide backup teachers for young or difficult classes.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ittti Japan (Los Angeles, CA).
I sent in an application and was arranged to have a phone interview. The interview called me and asked me a couple of questions on the phone, and even tested my Japanese fluency. After that, I received a forward up e-mail saying they wanted to conduct an in-person interview at their L.A. office which was scheduled a month later. In the office I did a live demo on teaching English in Japan and I was shown a quick video of their company. I was then informed about experiences living in Japan. I was offered the job I believe 1 month later.
