    I worked at James English School full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexible schedule and good hours
    - Understanding staff at my branch (sometimes not!)
    - Good class material.
    - Accommodation in terms of helping you settle in.

    Cons

    - Often clashed with upper management when it came to issues such as promotion or leave
    - Teacher evaluation metrics are not flexible. I.E. you will be judged for students leaving even if they simply can't afford classes.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management should be a good example for all employees. If you treat staff unfairly, especially the Japanese staff, you can't expect good results. Value the people who work for you, listen to their ideas, share workload evenly and pay everyone fairly.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at James English School.

    Interview

    I interviewed over Skype via a video call. It wasn't hard at all.
    They hire around October to coax renewing teachers to not leave and work for a competitor.
    My advice is to look elsewhere.
