I worked with Open Book Teachers for one term. They were amazing to deal with. They made sure I had an abundance of information about the job and living in Thailand. They paid for a few things that other agencies never did - such as first non-B, bus, etc. Their salary was generous compared to other agencies. I was always paid on time and always felt I had support if I needed something.
