      -Very pleasant to work for by making teaching resources easy to access -VIPKid teaching material (slides) made teaching online much easier then expected -Constant improvements to VIPKid app were especially useful -Getting paid was easy to setup -Teaching children online was fun even when there were challenges -The VIPKid site provides a lot more guidance for beginning teachers then when I started


      -Very difficult to accumulate new student bookings due to doubling their teacher numbers. Their ad said they employed 30,000 teachers when I applied and after working under contract for one and a half years the ads claimed 65,000 teachers. Acquiring new bookings was already challenging when I began and became scant to scarce after 1 year. -China passed a law requiring ESL certificate that VIPKid provided lessons for current teachers on their website (TESOL) which was greatly appreciated, but TESOL really does nothing to make you a better teacher. It is mainly teaching theory and ideas. Although I found it really interesting , it seemed unhelpful to teaching children. -A lot of work in acquiring different levels that you are allowed to teach. -VIPKid does not provide any props, equipment, basic teaching tools, etc. All of this comes out of your own pocket. -There is a resource known as the Hutong which provides materials you can pay with credit acquired by different reading exercises but the worthwhile materials are extremely expensive (require a tremendous amount of time and energy to acquire the credit). -The whole process was really overwhelming and time consuming to figure out when I began.

        Work from home. Curriculum is designed, no lesson plans


        -Communication with Home Office in China is delayed due to time difference and language barrier often means limited answers - The available times to work are rough

        VIPKID really appreciates your kind words. We work hard every day to offer an even better environment to the amazing teachers in our platform!

      Executive Administrative Assistant

      Hello, Please be kind. I’m so out of the loop and beat down, and may have posted this in a wrong group. I have been at my job 11 years, applied for a new job out of my organization. Posting closed last Mon. Tues at 4:40 they emailed to request an interview and wanted my top days/times for upcoming M-W. I responded with pref Wed afternoon as 1, Tues early or late as 2 or 3. I have not heard a response. I have to figure out an excuse to go on Tues to leave work. Is this normal to keep hanging on?

      hi , I’m new here 👋 I have an interview coming up and I’m struggling on how to answer the “tell me about yourself statement question.” I personally don’t like to talk about myself and have the tendency to start talking about me but then I end up talking about what’s on my resume 🤦‍♀️ any advice ?


      Alexa Rivera

      Hi, I applied for a job at a small business warehouse and I had a phone call with them about 1.5 weeks ago. It went well and a few days after, I got an email asking me when can I do an in person interview. I replied the following business day and gave them three dates. However, it’s been 4 days and they have not responded back to my email response. I even sent them a follow up and nothing. What does this mean and what should I do?
