The worst school I have ever experienced.
5 years ago.
Institute Review
I have taught in many places, but this school is so awful that I must warn other teachers about it.

1. The school didn't provide a visa to several teachers, but endlessly told the teachers to keep waiting, even having them do visa runs. Eventually, they just gave up, gave the teacher a heavily deducted paycheck, and told them to leave. Another teacher was forced to pay for his own visa run. Do not trust them to get a visa for you.

2. The owner does not pay in full, constantly deducting large amounts from paychecks mysteriously, deducting paychecks punitively, and paying only in cash.

3. The owner is abusive and bullying, harassing teachers and attacking them personally over minutiae.

4. The school is incredibly disorganized with last-minute cancellations that teachers are not informed about, late paydays, no set schedule, and archaic lesson plans that are expected to be followed to the letter despite consistently falling attendance.

5. Absolutely no assistance is rendered in paying utilities, getting a phone, setting up a bank account, or any information pertaining to life in Japan.

There is much more, but these reasons alone are enough so that you should never, ever work for Omni International English in Narita.
The pros
The Japanese teachers there, excluding the owner and her daughter, are very kind and helpful.
The cons
Many illegal practices, a horrible working environment with shouting and personal insults, lots of travel between sites that can extend working hours over 40 per week, poor organization, no acceptance of teacher input, no opportunities for advancement, and expensive, subpar housing with no included furnishings.
Advice to Management
Treat your employees like human beings.
Institution Location
Narita, Chiba, right by the JR station, across from the Barge Inn bar.
Relationship
I am a former employee with years of proven experience and references who was underpaid by hundreds of dollars, consistently lied to about the visa (never received one), treated poorly, and blamed for the entire situation.

Despite the lack of visa, the owner still kept hundreds of dollars out of paychecks for "tax".
