I have been working at VIPKID full-time (More than a year)
I was very lucky with vipkid and got a lot of bookings straight away. The class material is easy to use and a straightforward and fairly effective. The students are usually so lovely and the parents are sweet too.
For me not many, I think the pay is good and it is easy, fun work. It gets a bit boring after 2000 classes (I have taught over 4000 now). I will stay with it but am open to other jobs. I would love to be a mock class mentor as I have a lot of experience now with the company.
Advice to Management
Please strongly consider teachers with 4000+ classes as very experienced and offer them MCM positions.
I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at VIPKID (London, England).
Terrible, unfair process. I passed every part of the interview and was constantly receiving gushing feedback. Then, after the second mock class, they told me that I wasn't good enough and deactivated my account. This was after both of my mentors told me I would pass and asked me to buy a headset and lamps before I began teaching. I already have years of online ESL teaching experience and positive reviews from all of my students, so it came as a huge shock. The mentors should not lie and tell teachers how amazing and wonderful they are if in reality, they are lying. VIPKID also expects teachers to invest money into props and expensive equipment in the interview process, which I will never get to use in a teaching situation.
