I noticed that there is a posting on Gaijin Pot for an AET job with the Kurashiki City Board of Education.
Although I have never worked as an AET in Kurashiki, I know people who have. According to them, the job is pretty good: the schools are ok, the co-workers are cool, and the city isn't too bad a place to live.
However, they say that anyone interested in applying for a position there should be warned about the "so-called" AET Consultant that works for the Board of Education. Things aren't as rosy as he makes them seem on their employment web page. Despite what he says on the page, he is only interested in ingratiating himself with his superiors and pursuing his own personal agenda regardless of how it affects the AET's he is supposed to be helping. It's either his way or the highway and if you don't play ball with him he will find a reason to squeeze you out.
I could probably make a very long list of all the things I have heard he has pulled or tried to pull but there probably isn't enough room on this server.
All I can say is, make sure you do your homework before signing on the dotted line. Just because it's a position with a city as opposed to some funky private eikawa school, doesn't mean that everything is done on the up and up.
