At VIPKid Since November 2015"
I have been working at VIPKID part-time (Less than a year)
I love working for VIPKID because:
- I get to choose my own schedule
- I have the flexibility to work from anywhere in the world
- I get to make an everlasting impact on students, ages 5-12 in China
The "hot hours" on the West Coast, USA can be challenging to coordinate with day-to-day schedules as the hours are really early in the morning or pretty late at night.
Advice to Management
Keep doin what you're doin!
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at VIPKID (Dallas, TX) in April 2017.
Potentially long unless you nail it the first time. Very thorough! You must complete an interview and then teach a lesson. Depending on your preliminary stage it will be a Demo Lesson (10 min) or a Mock Class (25 min) presentation. Your interview outcome determines your pay so be sure to know the lesson. PREPARE PREPARE PREPARE!!! You will have a better chance at success on the platform if you do well the first time. If you don't pass the Mock 1, there is a potential for Mock 2 and other programs, however, each additional stage takes days to complete and can add up to a lot of time to pass. No matter your length, there is still no guarantee that you will get booked in the future but most do well in bookings and love the job so it's worth a try.
