    * This is not the job for people who want to be managed and supervised. You plot your own schedule, find ways to market yourself as a trainer, you set your own goals, you motivate yourself, you pay your own taxes, government contributions, etc, you pay for your own equipment and resources. * This is not the job for people who want to discuss easy topics; You need to have work experience to relate this to your lessons to make it interesting and engaging for students; You need to have wider perspective;

    Hi there. Thank you for al your feedback. Glad to hear that you are enjoying the benefits and getting a handle on the additional responsibilities of being your own boss. You are absolutely correct about this job not being for people who want to be managed or need to be managed. And thank you for your suggestions. If you haven’t attended our Get-Together before, please do. We have a lot of giveaways and it’s a great opportunity to create close ties with other Bizmates trainers and staff. Cheers. Hika Ito, CEO, Bizmates Philippines

    Pros

    - The schedule is flexible and the support team is very accommodating and responsive to inquiries. - New hires do not have to worry too much about the teaching materials because everything has already been provided for. - The students are mostly business professionals, or are working closely with that industry, so they behave accordingly. - Overall, joining them allows you to work at a friendly, professional, and stress free environment.

    Cons

    There is a slight discrepancy between what their finance dep. and BIR consider as a valid trade name/receipt so it's best to consult finance regardless of BIR's assurance that your documents are valid. However, it's still pretty manageable as long as you can allot some time for it.

    I have been working at Bizmates part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I never regret clicking the apply button the moment I came across their Ad in my facebook newsfeed. Bizmates is just exactly what I need. I'm a hands on mom who wants to earn from home at the same time. I dread the thought of having to leave home everyday for work leaving my child in the care of other people. Work/life balance, no long commute, flexible work schedule, reasonable pay (with regular increments) are just some of the perks of working from home with Bizmates. You'll also end up with some skills and be independent because you need to work well remotely. You become proactive to find what you need on your own. Of course, trainer support is always just a skype or text message away (who always responds promptly), but a lot of time you can just solve issues on your own pretty much because Bizmates has a GREAT SYSTEM and GREAT PEOPLE BEHIND IT. On top of these, I think what sets it apart is their comprehensive set of lesson materials. Not only that it covers all areas of business and conversation English skills, it's also structured to be easy for its trainers to teach.

    Cons

    Bizmates require reasonable internet speed, however, this requirement isn't always enough. Trainers should have a stable connection because poor connection can negatively affect your evaluation. It can be demotivating to get a low score from students just because of your connection which is out of trainer's control (be it a connection or a skype issue). One can have good speeds but high pings (especially if your testing with a tokyo server), which I think affects internet stability and skype calls.

    Thank you for leaving such a comprehensive review. I'm glad you are enjoying your time with us. Nothing makes me happier than to see our trainers being proud to be a member of Bizmates. Your concern about the Internet connection score is absolutely valid. I can understand how frustrating it can be when your ISP has problems and it's out of your control. However, a stable connection is part of the job requirement. We turn down so many excellent applicants just because their connection is unstable. So, we see our evaluation system for trainers as NOT a personal evaluation of you, but an evaluation of the impact you have on the business. If you have stable connection and manage to get good feedback from students, you are having a positive impact on our business and should be rewarded. However, if you live in an area that has a lot of power outages and only access to an unreliable ISP, that could have a negative impact on our business. So, we don't blame the trainer personally for connection issues, but it will be reflected in the evaluation system. As for resetting the scores of Internet connection, this is something that we've thought of doing. However, as the customer feedback is a survey, the more feedback we get the more accurate the score is. So resetting it would bring us back to square one. Imagine if we were to reset it and then you received a negative score for connection, your total score would be very seriously affected from that one survey, which wouldn't be fair. So as you more and more surveys from students, the bad scores should get watered down. Anyway, as you teach more and get more feedback scores from students, you'll notice that the few bad feedback scores from students have hardly no impact on your final score. Hika. CEO, Bizmates Philippines.
