worst school to teach at in Toronto

Your pay will be late, school is still extremely unorganized. I taught here for almost a year and it was a disaster. We feel sorry for the Chinese kids who pay thousands of dollars to go here.

Please read the dozens of teachers reviews on glassdoor.

Run away from this disastrous school.

Never pay on time
English Instructor (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON16 December 2017
Run as fast as you can away from this school. It is a revolving door for teachers and the only ones who stay feel they have no choice. Directors change frequently because the school never pays on time or when they do the cheques bounce. Management and administration staff is unhelpful and harass any employee who complains. Anyone who tries to leave is 'fired' and any who complain are let go too. There have been multiple complaints against the labour board yet this school is somehow still open.
Students are nice but hate the school too- stay far far away!!!
Pros
Lots of freedom to teach how I want to
Cons
Never get paid, harassed by principal

The school is paying $35.00 dollars per hour. Where can you get that kind of pay in Metro Toronto? You complained because you were fired by the administration for a cause.

Bouncing cheques if they issue them on time
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 April 2016
When I worked there I never got paid on time. The owner is either unaware of the Employment Standards Act or chooses to ignore it. Contracts are rotating every 5 weeks for esl courses and 3 months for other courses. Several employees have been "fired" after they quit. The place is a revolving door with new employees-high turn over for a reason. They still owe me $1400 in wages and also a week termination pay. In the past year 6 deans came and went that I know of. Fellow employees are generally really nice and supportive but the harassment produced through some of the administration ramps up the pressure to the point of bullying at best.
Pros
Im no longer an employee there, good teachers and some students that have fallen into this pyramid scheme
Cons
ESA violations common, low pay, no pay, not paid on time bounced cheques, harassment by administration

Productive and fun workplace
EAP Instructor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 January 2015
A typical day at work would be coming in prepared with lesson plans and activities for the amount of classes and students you have, which can range from two to three classes at most (four to six hour shifts). Morning classes run from 9:00-1:00 with a one hour lunch from 1:00-2:00. Evening classes are from 2:00-8:00. I learned how to use Excel spreadsheets for keeping track of marks, assignments, and performance as well as how to prepare report cards and final grades. My co-workers are all passionate about what they do and enjoy working there due to the pleasant and relaxed environment. The hardest part of the job is how to deal with problematic students when in an unexpected situation, such as when a student looked through my bag to see the exams. The most enjoyable part of the job is the field trips and getting to know the students outside of the classroom as they experience new things about Canada.
Pros
Excellent environment, flexible hours, friendly co-workers and employers
Cons
contract, part-time, no benefits, once a month pay by cheque
