    Gaba is a horrible school to work for, im warning alot of my english friends off it now, they basically pimp you out to Learning stations like prostitutes, You may live in Tokyo but they’ll send you out to learning stations in Chiba Okinawa and they’ll expect you to pack up your family and move because they say so.

    Your basically trapped, I recommend never doing this kind of work for a full time job, they’ll only mess your life up.

      Hello Amy,
      There are downsides for sure, but that is a bit extreme. You are right, instructors can’t choose where they are sent, but you can give a preference, and if you work there for a while you can probably get yourself transferred to a learning studio that is more convenient for you.

      You are right about Gaba as a full time job messing people up however, I have seen it happen. It is much better as a part-time thing.

    but what if you are thinking of getting hired by them to get a visa, and quit? Is this a possibility?

      Hello Chris,
      Yes, that is possible. They can’t cancel your visa. But they can tell immigration that you are no longer working for them. I don’t know if Gaba does this or not, but I think if you are in Japan on a visa you can’t stop doing that activity (teaching, studying, whatever) for three months without a good reason or immigration might cancel your visa. If you plan to get hired by them and then quit, you should probably have another job to go to and then notify the immigration asap, just to be safe.

      Some info (See “Residence Procedures for foreign nationals Q&A #17”)

      That said, when your visa is getting re-sponsored or changed you might need a letter of release from Gaba stating that you no longer work for them, and I’m not sure how willing they will be to supply that if you played them for chumps and quit on the first day.
