|I had an interview with Wall Street English in Taipei.
Here are some things that I learned about this company:
Full Time 30 hours a week
$55,500 per month
1/2 wages for training
1 week training period
$30,000 max bonus is possible
$25,000 towards a return home air ticket
Split shifts are normal
1 hour classes
No Paid Vacation during the 1st Year
2nd Year 5 paid days vacation (5!)
Health care, Work Permit, ARC provided
Computer Assisted Language Learning used at Wall Street
They look slick on the surface. Management seemed very unorganized but this is true in a lot of Taiwanese schools.
Per hour wages work are not very competitive if you work divide the wage by number of hours worked. They want teachers to go full time as it is cheaper for them this way.
Part Time minimum 14 hours a week
$550 per hour (Higher than full time but still below average pay)
Must work Saturday or Sunday
No Paid Vacation
If you get a no-show student, you don't get paid.
However, if you elect to do "chores" around the school You will be
compensated at 1/2 your hourly rate
