    I worked at UUabc part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company seemed to be respectful and appreciative of their teachers until they brought on-board new "directors", who never bothered to read the employment contracts they signed with tutors and started making "new policy" announcements which contravene their legal documents, such as they won't be paying stand-by rate, even though in their formal employment agreement they stated that a stand-by rate would be paid, or they announced "revisions to tutors' pay rate" which means that they would lower hourly pay rate. Hence legal documents mean nothing to the company management who are arrogant and extremely incompetent.

    Cons

    Some kids are a pleasure to teach.

    I worked at UUabc part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None - but you will get some money from them.

    Cons

    1. They are always late in paying my salary. 2. They are always complaining and sending threatening emails to teachers. 3. Their computer and course ware has numerous problems - so it freezes up or shuts down during lesson time. 4. This company only care about profits, and does not care about teachers, so they are late or completely ignore teacher's requests or suggestions. 5. Lastly, they think teachers are nothing more than cheap robots to abuse and mistreat.

    I have been working at UUabc full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They are friendly. They don't punish you for emergency leave if you're very sick.

    Cons

    They make deductions and change policy a lot and without much warning. The students can book leave too often at times.

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

    Pros

    The pay is good - $18 per hour (But you have no booking so it doesn't matter)

    Cons

    HR are rude and seem to fire people for no reason at all. The teaching hours are set and you have flexibility. There have been basically 0 bookings since August when the company was sold off. The lack of communication and general mismanagement has been shocking! Almost all teachers working for UU have been complaining since Aug 2019 and nothing has been done to make sure the teachers are being taken care of.

    I worked at UUabc part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I taught English online with UUabc for just under 1 year and honestly loved every minute of it! They are well organized and the staff and management/HR was always so helpful and friendly. I was very sad to leave the company and my awesome students, but unfortunately due to personal reasons could not continue to teach online. Honestly would reapply with them in a heartbeat! They also pay their teachers extremely well too!

    Cons

    The company only did classes for 2 hours at night on weekdays. I would've liked to have more hour available for bookings, but that might only be because I loved it so much!
