    I worked at EF English First full-time

    Pros

    Good onboarding and always paid correctly and on-time.

    Cons

    There are far more competitive salaries out there with better benefits such as more annual leave.

    Advice to Management

    Give teachers salaries that reflect the number of years ESL experience they have.

    I worked at EF English First full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You will get plenty of classes working with EF. I was teaching 70 classes a week. The lesson plan is good. The pay is good.

    Cons

    After working 6 months with EF I was fired. The day that I was fired my lesson plan did not fully loaded up. I left the class and re-entered the class, I hoping the second time I would be able to see the lesson plan. However, this caused me to be 30 seconds late to class. EF was quick to terminate my contract and was unwilling to listen to me. I think they view their employees as disposable .

    Advice to Management

    Not to be so quick to fire and respond to your emails about tech problems.
