    Pros

    You choose your own hours, pay is very good, the company listens to it's employees and changes things.

    Cons

    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.

    EFL Teacher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at VIPKID (New York, NY).

    Interview

    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.
