    He trabajado menos de un año como jornada completa en Altia Central

    Ventajas

    Supervisors are always available by phone and email, and (to my surprise) they are genuinely kind and helpful people. They know what they're doing, and they do their best to be understanding and accommodating. I really appreciated my supervisor(s), and I hope they get to hear from time to time that they're doing a great job. They give you loads of resources and materials. They deal with any issues in your school.... They pay fully and on time. In my opinion, this company is the absolute best in the field of ALT work, aside from getting a contract directly through the BOE.

    Desventajas

    Initial training and periodic training events throughout the year are the biggest waste of time imaginable. Unless you are fresh out of school with no work experience, they are beyond useless and made me want to set the building on fire. I felt like I was in kindergarten, and it was really difficult to keep a positive attitude when we were being forced to waste a perfectly good day on such ridiculousness. The... monthly meeting were about the same, but it was nice to get to actually see the other ALTs in the area. ALTs outside of Aichi/Gifu seem like they might not have it as good (headquarters are in Nagoya). I overheard one of the supervisors from another prefecture talking to an ALT and was appalled by how rude and demanding they were being. After speaking to the ALT, it seemed like they had far less support and structure (as well as a long and nasty commute). Pay isn't great. That's the norm for ALT dispatch companies, but that doesn't make it right.

    Consejos para la Dirección

    Your ALTs are adults. Please treat them like adults. Respect and understanding should be universal. If you want to set yourself apart from other dispatch companies, you have to work for it.

    Perspectiva negativa

    He trabajado como/a jornada completa en Altia Central durante más de un año

    Ventajas

    Long breaks, subsidized health insurance (most contracts), company housing if needed, materials supplied, transporation reimbursed, support in schools if trouble arises. In essence, they are supportive when it comes to school needs, but you’re on your own outside of work.

    Desventajas

    The company is going through changes and getting bigger, and it’s not for the better. Many people left or are leaving because of this. Unfortunately, Altia is becoming more like its competitors to keep costs down. Altia boasts it offers paid breaks, health insurance, etc., but more and more contracts are purposely cutting hours to avoid paying health insurance (technically illegal) and more contracts are... receiving salary prorations. I feel like your supervisor also depends on how good of an experience you have with Altia. Some of the supervisor are very nice and helpful. But some are very corporate, don’t care about their employees, and will snub you if you need help. You often have to fight to get what you need/want. It’s ridiculous. Altia is not as supportive as it claims either. If they arrange housing for you, they will not help with any moving costs if you decide to transfer or move. A lot of the housing is not conveinently located. They also leave you on your own to open a bank and get a cell phone. You only get 5 days of annual paid leave. If you get very sick and need more, they don’t pay you. Also, good luck using those 5 days for anything outside of being sick. At the end of the day, they’re just trying to keep the Board of Education happy. Your needs don’t really matter.

    Consejos para la Dirección

    Your employees are the backbone of your company. You at one point used to care about the happiness of your employees. Since then, the quality has declined. Start supporting your employees again.

    «Good way to teach in Japan for a year or so, not a lifetime career option»

    Exempleado - Empleado anónimo 

    Trabajé como/a jornada completa en Altia Central

    Ventajas

    Lots of support Great supervisor Good teaching materials Paid summers Taxes/insurance taken care of They give you a car (if you need one)

    Desventajas

    Very few opportunities for advancement (like most teaching jobs in Japan) Salary is good for ALT work and fine for a single person, it would be difficult to support a family with it though.

    Consejos para la Dirección

    I think management does the best they can... there are a lot of cultural differences between foreign teachers and Japanese schools and I think management bridges that gap well.
