Thread: News from Interac

  1. #1

    Default News from Interac

    There's apparently an email coming to Interac workers that will ruin the company's image? I'm not sure what this is entirely, and I'm not Interac myself, but I'm awaiting confirmation from other people right now.

    Let's discuss in this thread.

    All Interac ALTs will get paid a livable wage?

    yeah, because who needs free flowing drugs and alcohol fueling adventorous sex with taut, lithe young bodies when you could wander around a dying town in the freezing cold with a can of asahi super dry in your hand while some toothless old farmer shouts at you.

    Reddit has been going on about it since last night.

    Does JET have anything to do with that? I'm honestly not to clear about the various ALT organizations and how/if they're related to each other.

    No. But also yes, a little.

    Interac is a private dispatch company. It provides ALTs to schools. The ALTs in question work for Interac, not the local board of education. Interac is known for its sh*tty pay but is essentially the largest and possibly most "legitimate" private dispatch company. JET is a program that screens ALTs and flies them over to Japan, but the ALT is then hired directly by the local (or prefectural) board of education. JET is known for its slightly less sh*tty pay, the free flights, and the general sort of shared sense that it is the "best" way to become an ALT (well, better than a dispatch company, anyway). JET and Interac have nothing to do with one another, aside from the fact that they both have something to do with ALTs/teaching English.

    However, to lots o' Japanese people, the differences between the two probably mean f*ck-all. ALTs are ALTs, and this will probably reflect negatively on everyone involved in the English education field in the minds of more than a few J-folks.

    Hmm, okay, I think that makes a little more sense to me. Thanks for explaining.
