    J'ai travaillé chez Ittti Japan en Contrat Permanent (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    Good salary, 2 weeks intensive training, Great opportunity to live and work in Japan (without prior experience). Accommodation is arranged for you.

    Inconvénients

    Prior experience is not needed but certainly helps! You almost always teach on your own, and far from the urban areas of Japan, very likely you will feel isolated and alone at times. This job can be very difficult if you do not have an upbeat/lively personality.

    J'ai travaillé chez Ittti Japan à temps partiel (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Independence is nice.
    The content is easy to teach and helps you develop basic EFL teaching skills.
    The company helps to contribute to the cost of your medical insurance.
    Excellent as a one year experience.

    Overall, it's easy, but can be very tiring and even frustrating at times.

    Inconvénients

    Please only consider these cons if you intend to work at this company for more than one year. The first year is wonderful but after the excitement of a new country and late starts wears off, the issues start to become apparent.

    The behavior of students can be a cause of stress.
    Particularly bad students will never be asked to leave, even if they treat the native teacher in a racist manner and disrupt for the entirety of the lesson. Classroom numbers are paramount to the company, not the quality of lesson. The company seems like a vehicle to sell the parent companies' text books, language learning 'tools' and test. As a result, it's easy to question the effectiveness of the curriculum and teaching methods.

    The teaching methods you are trained to use are consistent with the Audio-lingual approach to language learning. It is rooted in the philosophy of 'drill, drill. drill.' Since there is a curriculum, towards the end of the term (of which there is 11 in a year) it can feel almost lobotomising to be drilling a class on an expression of dubious real world value.

    The lesson goal is that the students can demonstrate the target expression. This is trained with repetitive drilling. It's not clear whether the students comprehend what they are saying. This produces short term results at best and it is clear that it is just to impress the parents in the end of lesson demonstration.

    The company uses a separate entity to recruit students. It is clear that the recruiter's targets are set independently of the teachers working in the classroom and as a result, it's not uncommon to have lessons of 11+ children. Given the issues stated regarding the boring teaching methods, it is impossible to maintain classroom control.

    Sometimes it can be unclear as to what the company will agree with in terms of conduct. Stern and strict approaches to disruption are discouraged by the company and you will often hear of customer claims related to teachers who take the common sense approach. It can be very stressful as it seems impossible to perform your job and you will hear complaints that the class was 'out of control.' Instead of allowing for effective methods of classroom management, the company provides an ineffective and convoluted series of strategies that could only ever work in an ideal world that doesn't exist.

    Having experienced a few classes with students suffering from serious behavioral issues, the stress can be intense. Though most of my schools did not have such issues, I covered some classes that did.

    In one instance, at one of my regular schools, I felt incredibly drained after restraining a screeching kid for 45 minutes. However, such classes can receive assistance from the Japanese teacher should it be deemed severe enough.

    Finally, from constant reminders in the native teacher newsletter about customer service, the fact that supervisors will tell native teachers that Peppy is 'a customer service company, not a teaching company per se' and the fact that the company president (when I started) could only perform a self introduction in English before resorting to his interpreter, elucidate the priorities of the company.

    Summary:

    - company seems numbers driven, not quality driven

    - mindless customer first philosophy leads to contradicting expectations and native teachers feel at the mercy of the parents' whim

    - repetitive drills, repetitive curriculum and repetitive games can become difficult to meet with enthusiasm after the first year

    - severe incidents in class that were the fault of a student are not dealt with appropriately by the company (again, customer first)

    Conseils à la direction

    Train teachers for one month, expose us to modern approaches to second language acquisition to allow for more interesting lessons that don't rely on mindless games to 'reinforce' the target language. No matter how well designed the game is, the kids just won't repeat the lanaguge perfectly when playing the game.

    Recognize that 'customer service' is not an industry unto itself. This is an English School, not a maid cafe. Do not tell your staff, who operate under job titles such as Native Teacher or Japanese teacher, that this is a 'customer service' company. No matter how much you write it in the native news, good customer service cannot exist with dissatisfied staff.

    Take into account the teacher's side of the story and reconsider which claims are published. The approach currently used is demotivating and leads to staff feeling disenfranchised.

    J'ai travaillé chez Ittti Japan en Contrat Permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Peppy Kids Club has an easy recruitment process due to high attrition rates (many teachers resign) and positions usually have to be filled urgently. Please read the cons listed below before accepting a job offer with them.

    Inconvénients

    Inexperienced management (Ask how many years before your supervisor/trainer was promoted from entry level to their current position. Senior employees refuse to accept supervisory positions due to low salary rates and overwhelming scope of work.)
    Very high attrition (resignation) rate among Japanese and foreign teachers (If Japanese teachers keep on resigning, foreigners or "Native Teachers" have to cover the Japanese teachers' lessons, too.)
    While foreign teachers who are unlicensed are legally required to teach with a licensed Japanese teacher at schools nationwide, this English Conversation academy has resorted to allowing foreign teachers with little or no Japanese speaking abilities and no early childhood education training to conduct classes alone (Due to the lack of manpower, they are unable to hire JTs to assist NTs, which may be very risky as this job involves children.)
    Unprofessional behavior among employees (Much lower level of professionalism and work ethics at Peppy Kids Club compared to public school staff.)
    Supervisors lack sympathy (Due to the lack of manpower, sick days are frowned upon, and parental leave and other benefits are not viewed positively by the supervisors.)
    Employees are usually sent to isolated rural areas and consequently, due to the late night schedule of classes, teachers have to quite frequently take the last train, which is very risky as missing it would mean the teacher would have to look for his or her own accommodations or sleep at the classroom.
    Very low satisfaction among Japanese employees (especially among JTs who always complain about their salary and workload)
