    I have been working at SayABC part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am booked for 31 out of 32 available slots a week. Any spots I don't have homerooms I currently fill with trials. I find they are responsive and a great company to work for. The homerooms I have I have had from the beginning.

    Cons

    The only con is that it's not flexible and taking time off is an issue.


  2. "No classes to schedule and poor management"

    I have been working at SayABC part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the kids they are great e

    Cons

    They do not schedule many classes at all . They say they need help and you open all your slots and nothing. When you start working you are pretty much on your own they don’t really give you a guide to follow if certain things happen you just wing it

    Advice to Management

    Give more hours so you do not loose your teachers I’m assuming the turn over rate is high because people start because you tell them you will book them classes and still after months they are barley being booked at all almost not even worth it.

    Pros

    Students are great and classroom is well built.

    Teacher Support will blame teachers for random errors on the system's part

    Be kinder to teachers. As the Facebook page is showing, we are being mistreated.

    I have been working at SayABC part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    pay is good ( but other online ESL programs pay the same )

    Cons

    This is the MOST unprofessional and unorganized company. I have had so many problems with them as well as other individuals I know who work/have worked for them. They do not have a representative who speaks fluent English so it it hard to speak to an employee when there is a problem. They will book classes without you even knowing, and you will get penalized for their actions. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY.
