Relaxed, fast-paced and flexible

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Management is pretty hands off. Classes are easy enough to follow and teach, with opportunities with some adults to discuss things in-depth. The only downsides are sometimes a lack of available hours and no guaranteed money for classes that aren't booked by students.


work hours, flexible schedule


pay is less than industry average

low pay, no support, violate contract

Teachers are promised up to 18 dollars per hour and then told company is struggling and pay is cut to 14 per hour. No pay for prep time or mandatory feedback time. No support. Teaching materials are a joke, full of Chinglish and grammar errors.

User-friendly platorm, helpful support, audio class, easy to use materials

This is a great company to work for. I've been with two ESL companies before but never expected to enjoy Hujiang this much as it was not a famous school to all. You would really get to love their platform, courses, students and support, plus you don't have to open your camera, and salary is great. Thanks Hujiang for the great experience!

Private cubicle in the office

Even though you work with a lot of other people in the office, I really like that we have our own cubicles where we still have our privacy when teaching so that we will not feel so embarrassed about having someone else see you.

Nice but low pay

The work is easy and I love how I am in control of my own schedule so I can fit it around what else is going on in my life. I have built up a large group of students who book my classes regularly so I always have work. The pay is low though and not enough to live on in the uk

High standards, high quality

Hujiang has higher standards than most online ESL schools out there. It's harder to get a job here. But as a result, the company has a much higher quality product and a better work environment. My managers and assistants were all very pleasant to work with. They had reasonable demands on my time, and frequently offered overtime; but if it didn't work for my schedule there were no penalties, as is common with Chinese employers. As a demo teacher, the hardest thing is definitely the high-energy nature of the job. You can't have an off day, or even an off class, because all of your students are first-time learners, and how they see you is how they will see the whole company, and to a large extent determines whether they buy the class. On the other hand, the flexibility this job provides is amazing. You can do it wherever you are, change your schedule each week to best fit your life, and get your paycheck through Payoneer anywhere in the world.


Flexibility, good management culture


Short breaks between classes, often work in the middle of the night

Don't be a demo teacher

I can't speak for what it's like to work as a regular teacher, I only did demos. The company will expect you to be available 24\7, you will not get paid if someone cancels a class, and sometimes you'll just end up sitting around all day not even getting paid for it. From what I was told by a friend they use to pay for cancelled classes but stopped after so many cancelled at the last minute. I have to say the hardest part for me was the timing. The contract specifically said to be available up to 5 minutes before a possible class. However, they don't stick to this. If someone wants a demo even one minute before the class they'll assign it to you. On top of that, if you miss it for any reason, whether it's your fault or not, you'll get some pretty angry text messages from management. The girl I worked with was not easy to get along with at all. The contract you sign states that you won't harass anyone at the company. I guess that doesn't apply to the teachers. If you work as a regular teacher and don't ever miss a class this job might work for you.


$18/hour decent pay


Cultural differences can cause a lot of headaches.

Productive and challenging

I start up my computer and teaching application. I teach my booked classes for the day and complete a short feedback report. Classes are done by voice only. It takes careful planning on a weekly bases.


Flexible hours, Good salary


Not many

productive and fun work experience

Every morning, I would look over how many students I would be teaching in the evening and prepare each lesson that corresponds with each student. During the lessons, I would work individually with each student to make sure that they not only had a strong comprehension on the topic but also help the student improve on their English.


having the opportunity to help others


very limited time to work with the student

Great way to get teaching experience

Working online has been a unique experience. It is a great way to learn to teach English, and there are also opportunities to use Chinese with the students. Sometimes it is difficult or confusing working with the Hujiang staff because they are in China and English is their second language. Overall, though, this is a great way to make some money on the side and make some new Chinese friends.

Fit for language learner

Though I am just doing a part time job there, not ever met those formal co-workers in this company, I can feel that all the employers there are with passion about their work and I have truly learnt a lot other than language, such as time management and the importance of communication.
