    Decent conditions, but expect to be milked for free working hours...

    Jun 7, 2022 - English Instructor

    Pros

    Face-to-face teaching hours are good. Lesson plans and curriculum are provided, so possible to deliver lessons with minimal planning. Largely left alone to teach with minimal interference.

    Cons

    Hourly rate is decent enough, but they only pay you for 5.5 hours per day whilst expecting you to be on campus for close to 10 hours per day (in order to be "available for students" -- 8:30 to 18:20 most days ). If I'm on campus and not available for other paid work, then I expect to be paid for every hour of my time. So you can basically cut that hourly rate in half and you'll find yourself being paid about the same as the part-time high school convenience store clerk across the street. Except you'll be the one with the Master's (or even doctoral) degree. Westgate have a bizarre (and strict) "business attire" dress code, so you have to go to class looking like you're attending a business meeting of some kind. The explanation is that "Japan is a very conservative country", but this is nonsense: most of the university professors don't dress formally on campus when teaching. And the other non-Westgate foreign instructors on campus get to dress as they please (usually very casually), so it doesn't seem to be dictated by the university. I'm not sure who it's benefiting to have instructors dress this way -- it's certainly not conducive to a relaxed and dynamic teaching environment and only seems to serve to make Westgate instructors stand out, which is precisely the opposite of what we're told Westgate wants us to do.
