    I have been working at RareJob part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They allow a flexible schedule to work around with. With 50php as a starter for every 25 minute lesson, pay is just. In addition, they have generous benefits for hard-working tutors. Again, there are other companies with better pay, better system, and better tutor-care.

    Cons

    It's a Japanese owned company. Unless you are the customer, they don't care about your welfare. The system itself is hard to work around with, and the management does not care about your side of the story for irate students. You can do better than RareJob. Make this your stepping stone, or a part-time thing, but do not make a career with this company. It's not worth it.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, easy to use teaching materials, students are pleasant

    Salary doesn’t change no matter how long you worked with them, high penalties, retains rude students no matter how many tutors complained about them, since you will be classified as an Individual Contractor, company will not pay for your SSS, Philhealth, etc

    I have been working at RareJob full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Super flexible schedule Great students, very polite and eager to learn Relatively fast response from Tutor Support Extensive source of teaching materials On-time pay Easy to understand tutor fee computation Fool-proof website which is always updated with ways to make tutors' jobs easier Large number of students ensuring no empty slots especially during certain peak times

    Cons

    Unfair management practices- takes the students' side most of the time (this, I can understand as students are the bread and butter of the entire operation but in a way, so are your tutors, no?) Inflexibility. Finds it too easy to find ways to disqualify tutors from incentives by hiding behind technicalities in the handbook. Take an unscheduled power outage for example. They will surely give you a 204 (code for no-notice absence), 3-4 of those a month will surely disqualify you for ANY incentive. So you may be working steadily and reliably for the past 100 hours of that month and should you be unfortunate enough to book 3 hoursof class the day when a power outage happens, you may certainly say goodbye to at least 2-3 thousand pesos of your pay. No questions asked, no considerations. It is the tutor's responsibility to know even the unknowable. BAIT AND SWITCH. Of all the cons, this is the biggest of all. A tutor is signed on for a particular set of base pay, set of incentives and requirements for those incentives. Three years in a row now, they have steadily slashed net pay by at least 10 percent each time under the guise of "renewing" your contract. They do it so well by asking you to "renew* your contract by "raising" your base pay, add some incentives and scrap some existing ones. Sounds fair? Not at all. After all that is said and done, you are left with a net of -10% of the salary you usually get. Usually because they got rid of the highest paying incentives, replaced it with other incentives at half the value, moreover, attaching rigid requirements in order for you to qualify for the incentives at all. They ask for more and more in exchange for less and less pay. The tutors have to deal with a touch choice: to acquiesce or to leave.
