I have been working at VIPKID part-time (More than a year)
You choose your own hours, pay is very good, the company listens to it's employees and changes things.
You may not always be booked. Sometimes parents will write bad reviews based on system wide issues . They are "invalidated" but still show up in your reviews.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at VIPKID (New York, NY).
VIPKID has a very comprehensive and competitive hiring process. You will be interviewed by the Corporate Office in Beijing and contract negotiations will begin if you are recommended for the mock class. The mock class will be you teaching an assigned lesson. It requires preparation. You are required to successfully complete at least one mock class to be hired. The mock class evaluation includes feedback on strengths and weaknesses including timing the lesson, allocating rewards, the use of props and TPR, connecting with the learner and using complete sentences. Some candidates will go through 2 mock classes. Sometimes more.That seems to be much more common.
Making Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies List for 2018 is an honor and a privilege. VIPKID is #29 most innovative in the world, and #2 in China.
The list is populated with inspiring and cutting-edge companies such as Apple, Netflix, Square, Tencent, Amazon and Slack. Being placed among such pioneers is an amazing and exciting place to be. #FCMostInnovative
