    J'ai travaillé chez EF English First à temps plein

    Avantages

    If you’re coming to China for the first time, EF is a great way to get settled into the country. For me, the culture shock was real upon coming into the country so it helped to have the support provided. The two weeks of orientation really helped to just have time to get used to the country, but as far as teaching goes, if you’re quite new, it still felt like being thrown into the deep end for me. You’ll learn and get...

    Inconvénients

    Had to find our own apartments by our third weekend there. It was nice to have 2-3 weeks to do this, but still stressful.

    Avantages

    I do not have many pros to say about the company. A good experience to live in another country and to gain teaching experience.

    Inconvénients

    I am going to be completely honest. The pay is not good at all. EF will tell you they have a competitive pay in China but they do not. EF cannot keep teachers because of the pay. You earn 13,000 yuan and jobs pay more than 20,000 yuan with free housing. When you arrive in China with EF, they will offer you a loan for housing to move...

    -The children are incredible and a joy to be around -They take care of getting you to China

    Inconvénients

    To start with, most of the things they tell you and advertise to get you here are a lie. Even the contract says you will have all PRC holidays off yet you are required to come in to sit at your desk twiddling your thumbs for five hours just because. Against what the contract says. Out of the other jobs in my city we are paid the very least even though going to the school is the most expensive in the city. We have the...

    Conseils à la direction

    You wonder why your teacher turn-over rate is so high yet you treat your teachers like trash you can throw out at any time. Show your teachers you actually value them and let them have the life you advertise. If not then start being honest before hiring people. That's an immoral way to run a business.

    Paid on time. Jeff. Fantastic trainer and a genuinely great and supportive guy. It's a shame the company isn't built on his values.

    Inconvénients

    Low salary. Terrible holiday policy. 3 month notice period if you want to leave. Threatened multiple times that they wouldn't give the documents they are legally obligated to provide if I didn't do exactly as they want. Uncooperative and rude toward the company I joined after. Overworked. Terrible working environment. An overcrowded office with no windows, classrooms with no windows. People are constantly sick all...

    Conseils à la direction

    Teaching is about kids not how much money you can extract from the parents. Don't expand so aggressively if your only choice is to constantly push for parents for more money. (3 months in to 12 months of classes and you are pushing PA's to get the parents to buy more... Come on..) You are never going to keep good teachers while the contract remains so poor. Doesn't really seem like a priority though, the business model...

    The company knows you are there for a year and is not trying to keep you there. The pay is less than you can get with other Teaching jobs in China.
