This is just a short disclaimer about my experiences as an ALT with Interac.
My experience does not necessarily represent the experience of other current or future ALTs for Interac.
I work for the Kansai and South Central Co., Ltd. branch of Interac, and I know from friends who have worked for other branches that experiences range wildly depending on where you are placed.
I also consider myself very lucky with the schools I have been placed with. It is really the luck of the draw, and if you are placed at a picky, difficult school you will have to work harder to get them to like and trust you.
I am only placed at elementary school and therefore do not represent ALTs placed in junior high or high schools. On top of this I am at a number of schools, so my experience will differ greatly from those placed at fewer schools as they have more opportunity to build relationships with the staff and students.
Please don’t think that my experience is a comprehensive Interac experience, because it is not. There are so many variables. However, if you have any questions, please feel free to drop me a message and I will do my best to answer your question accurately!
Best of luck!
