      I have been working at Magic Ears part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I have been with Magic Ears for five months and I absolutely love it! Let me outline some of the many reasons I like this company: • They listen to their teachers and implement teacher’s requests. • They value their teachers. • They communicate clearly and often with their teachers via email, Skype and in the teacher’s portal. • The Beijing staff is wonderful to work with. • The Magic Ears platform is interactive,...

      Cons

      Cons: • If you are looking to have 100% full schedule with lots of hours right away, that won’t happen. This is common with many companies. • I can’t really think of any other cons. This is a fantastic company to work for and I highly recommend it. It’s especially helpful if you find someone with a referral code and they can help you and answer questions for you through the hiring process.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the good work! Thanks for all you do to make Magic Ears a great place to work.

      I have been working at Magic Ears part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      * I make $23/hour * I get to work from home * work early so the rest of my day is available * amazing training from the company and other teachers * sick policy is such a relief if you really have to cancel * I ranked up quickly and was offered a secondary position

      Cons

      *you have to be patient and focus on improving your teaching before ranking up and getting booked more, so this could take some time. If you are in it for the long haul, it is so worth it though!

      I have been working at Magic Ears part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Magic Ears treats you as part of a family. They are extremely courteous and gracious. If you are sick, they want you to rest. You need to travel? No problem. The pay is wonderful, the highest I've found. I make $22 per hour. There is opportunity for secondary positions pretty quickly. I've worked for them for 5 1/2 months and already have a supervisory role also.

      Cons

      They are a newer company so "all" the hours of teaching aren't offered quite yet, but they will get there as they grow :)

      I have been working at Magic Ears part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I love working for Magic Ears. At ME I am not a number like I was at VIPKID. I communicate regularly with the staff and they are always so friendly and appreciative of my hard work. I have gotten a raise since I started working and also have been awarded some secondary positions that I can do on off-peak hours, which I love. I get feedback on my teaching regularly that is helpful and that I can implement. ME is new and...

      Cons

      In the beginning you will not have a fully booked schedule. But as you get more experience and do well, you will get more and more bookings.

      Advice to Management

      I would like to see more videos of great teachers teaching on the ME portal so that new teachers can see what a great class looks like.

      I have been working at Magic Ears part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      MagicEars has so many good qualities that I have witnessed since joining the company in September 2017. I am grateful for this opportunity to teach as a second career in my mid-30s. The pay is good, the staff is flexible and the children are teachable. The students have the ability and the desire to learn. The biggest pro as a Teacher is seeing the world through the children 's eyes. I learn as much from them as they...

      I have been working at Magic Ears full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      You get to choose your own hours. This is so incredibly helpful for me, because my husbands job rotates his weekends/hours often and with Magic Ears I can easily adjust my work hours to match his. I get to work, and be at home with my son. Magic ears has an excellent policy on cancelling classes for emergencies and the job security is unmatched. If theres a storm and your internet goes out, or a family emergency arises,...

      Cons

      They are a semi-new and growing/thriving company. I hope to see communication between staff and teachers become more immediate as they grow.

      Advice to Management

      More consistency of comminicating with the teachers would really be so appreciated and take Magic Ears to the next level.

      Pros

      This company will not punish teachers for cancelling classes if they are sick. I believe you get 2 sick days per month.

      Cons

      Newer company, might see growing pains, but I havent witnessed it.

      Advice to Management

      Continue to communicate with the teachers. 😊
