This is a customer service position rather than a teaching position. Avoid at all costs!

ILAC promotes itself as a language school (or the even more glorified term 'academy'), but in reality, they are not remotely interested in any academic matters. Teachers provide customer service.This is a company where student evaluations are not concerned with academic progress. They are popularity contests that can determine their one-sided judgment on your teaching skills. You cannot provide constructive feedback to students because they can (and they often do) take it as personal criticism, which results in student complaints. You cannot assess your students fairly because, if passing grades are not awarded to all, your objectivity and teaching abilities are questioned. Students are often misplaced yet you are expected to constantly praise their often non-existent efforts, you are expected to pass them with flying colours regardless of their academic merit. It is a conveyor belt of students where at the end they are given a meaningless certificate.Your hours will never be secure. Every two weeks you can be out of a job. There are no benefits unless you are in a management position. They will, however, not tell you this upfront. They will tell you that benefits are available after a probation period. Once that period is over, you will be told that benefits are available only if you work a certain number of hours. If you are lucky to work the required hours, then you will be told that there are no benefits because your schedule (your hours) may change any week.During the start of the pandemic, many teachers were fired only to be rehired at a much lower pay later on. - 

Pros

Some teaching materials are provided (although most of their books are fairly outdated and dry)

Cons

Lack of job security and low hours with low pay, shameless favouritism with highly insensitive and unprofessional management, highly subjective employee evaluation criteria where popularity is prioritized over teaching skills, zero career opportunities with zero benefits for teachers, extremely insincere work environment with a toxic work culture that lacks transparency and support, sales/customer service values prioritized over academic values, high staff turnover

Just so you know they removed all the negative comments

They removed all the previously negative reviews:( There is no job security and salary is just a little higher than janitors, but you gotta do way more work. Very bad management. Have never seen any ESL schools post hiring ads so often. Teachers don’t get fooled
