    Very Understanding Laid Back Company

    Pros

    The staff is very responsive and always willing to help with absolutely anything, from class materials, tech issues, to needing to reschedule/cancel classes. They really go above and beyond. Always friendly. Easy to hit bonuses (see cons below about bonus structure) Flexible Schedule Very easy to follow Pre-planned lessons

    Cons

    The pay/hr is misleading to those interested in the company because you do not actually get paid per hour. You are paid/lesson which is less than 30 minutes. You are not compensated for the short breaks in between classes, So a full "hour" of pay would actually be a little more than an hour of work. Little incentives or room for career growth. The bonuses are easy to hit but they do not add that much to your pay. That can be disheartening after teaching for months or years and you are still getting the same pay as someone who is a new hire and who also may be a worse teacher. Lessons (especially beginner lessons) become extremely boring. This becomes easier after your first contract since the many of the beginner lessons are put on new teachers.

    Pros

    - They schedule for you and talk to the kids/families for you. - My schedule has been filled most of the time (not the case for some others). - Lessons (curriculum) is done for you. You may need/want a prop or two. - The staff treats you like a person with a life - AMAZING!!! - You can talk to the staff at any time. - You can ask to have a personal day, sick day or vacation at any time (preferably with 5+ hours notice). - You can change your availability whenever you want. - The kids are (usually) wonderful, well-behaved, want to learn and super cute! - The lessons are interactive, engaging and FUN with an imaginative wonderful story, games, songs and cute animated characters.

    Cons

    Wish the classes weren't so early in the morning, but that can't be helped because of the location of the children (China). I wish this company could continue in China and I could continue working for them. Sadly, because of the regulations in China, I am now looking for other ESL work...

    Pros

    Qkids has a very flexible schedule that you can build yourself, reliable assistance from CCT, and overall great kids to work with.

    Cons

    The hours can be difficult due to how early classes start. The industry is also dissolving so job security is uncertain.
