But another teacher said work experience is correct instead.
Are there any English experts could help me?

Working(adj.) experience(noun).=工作的..經驗...... 這句最正確 .
working是adj.正正式式 的形容詞.不是什麼gerund/present participle.
.....gerund.只可作 noun=subject/object/complement. 不能作adj. 唔好誤會.
n+n唔多妥. 不是兩個noun一起就是compound noun....否則adj就失去其意義.
work(v. or n.) 不是adj. 因experience 是要被adj.去形容的.

因為work experience係兩個noun撞埋一齊 姐係compound noun

It is good that you ask!!
I am sure they are Both correct!!
working = gerund (not present participle------> not a function)
another similar example= teaching experience
work experience ( jobs you have done/experienced)
working experience and work experience are both correct.
Actually in the past(in 60s) , working experience and not work experience is used.
Nowadays, stubborn grammarians claim that work experience should be used.Frankly I have also yielded to these stubborn grammarians, for fearing that someone who knows little about grammar may say I write something wrong.
