No performance management for employees
Invigilator (Current Employee) –  ManilaJuly 5, 2016
Unfortunately the existing organization management does not recognize the function of human resource as a whole. there is no value for employee relations except if the kind of personality you have is "patronize the one in the position".

those who are in the position just takes the credit of those who have tried achieving something for the company. appreciation is not practiced in this company.
Pros
some free food on some events
Cons
long list

instructor (Former Employee) –  Cebu City, P07May 15, 2015
the typical day of work in the company is natural teaching the students to right learnings, ive learned many thing like handling attitudes students ive learned how to deal with them, ive learned how to teach in a proper way, ive learned also how to speak british and american accent. when it comes to the management they are very friendly and always focus on everything the employees and also students. the hardest part in that company is when you have a slow learner students you need to do your best and used diff teaching style to handle them. i enjoy the most about the people it is because they are very friendly, approachable and most of all help each other.
Pros
free lunches
Cons
long hours

Invigilator/Station Manager (Former Employee) –  Manila, PhilippinesFebruary 27, 2014
A typical day is exciting and something to look forward to from setting-up the test venue, registering candidates through intricate Identification authorization management. Arriving at least 2 hrs. earlier prior to exam proper wearing prescribed business casual uniforms. And finally engaging candidates to start with exam proper.

I've learned to be patient every time dealing with each candidate coming from different backgrounds. I've learned to do tasks in administration and has improved much with my interpersonal skills.

I have great experiences every time assigned to manage candidates Identification process. I enjoy that part almost always being a technical person handling electronic devices.

Hardest part is to handle more than the regular volume of candidates say from the normal to double and at one time triple. That was hard but still fun enjoying the challenge.

The most enjoyable part is the time to evaluate and discuss successes on the job and sharing of learning with supervisor. Another enjoyable part are the training every start of fiscal year along with a celebration for post Christmas and New year events.
Pros
Educational in nature / English proficiency enhanced / Customer Service Skills advanced
Cons
a few complaints from candidates /
