    I worked at Bluedata International full-time

    Pros

    Nice and easy going coworkers

    Cons

    everything is case by case, no set rules, all depends on the owner`s mood. pay is extremely low. starting at $10-$12 and after you got $12, it takes over years to have an arise. No opportunity to grow and no future. NO Benefits at all.

    Advice to Management

    You need to work with ethic.

    I have been working at Bluedata International part-time

    Pros

    A lot of room for flexibility in your teaching. This is a great place to try teaching for the first time, get your feet wet, make mistakes, and become a stronger teacher. Staff are nice, teachers are supportive.

    Cons

    Some students are unmotivated because have been at the school too long. However, this is standard for language centers of this caliber.

    I worked at Bluedata International part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good for first time teachers trying to develop a style. Young environment.

    Cons

    Everything else.

    I am a seasoned teacher with overseas ESL experience and management experience within an educational facility. I interviewed for this place, and the director tried to con me into getting licensed via their program, which I had to pay for. I initially withdrew my application because of this, but she never even saw it and offered me a job anyway. It was for a retainer substitute position, so I thought why not since it is not permanent.

    I was hired alongside another person who taught overseas who had less experience than me (only one year). We were offered the same starting rate! Then I found out the other teachers were getting paid higher than me but still had less experience. The TOEFL class they wanted me to teach actually required more preparation work than the other levels, and they put low and high level students in the same class. This is extremely frustrating in terms of student progression. Not to mention the classes are a whopping 4.5 hours long, with students only required to be there 3 hours. What is the point of having a class that long if they are only supposed to be there 3 hours?!

    I asked via a long essay about my qualification for AT LEAST $2 extra for my starting rate. What they were asking of me combined with my expertise justified more than the horrible $12/hr rate they were offering. Days and days passed and no email nor phone call. I believe the director has "selective reading" because when it came to finding an emergency sub, she was quick to message me!

    Extremely disorganized, horrible pay, terrible program. DO NOT WORK HERE.

    Advice to Management

    CHECK YOUR EMAILS. Learn a thing or two about how much work it takes to prepare a lesson and think about how much someone should REALLY get paid for it!

    Try to treat your most important commodity (thats the teachers) with some respect and value. Take the time to learn our names.
