[quote=GUEST18936,554013]Rockies English school are agents in that they hire out foreign teachers to partner schools within their network, and the foreign teachers have a contract with this company directly, and not with the school. f you don't want unnecessary hassle, stay away from them - this is a well-meant advice. There is hardly anything professional in this company. While they are not only agents, but also active in other business fields, it is all done with such a high degree of unprofessionalism and dilettantism that you can only wonder how they get away with it. Never work for Rockies English School. They fooled me and I felt really dissappointed. A good lesson for everyone who is looking for a job as English teacher in China. You should never accept the school if they say you should come with a tourist visa (L-visa) first. That is bullshit, it is just a way of getting more money. Rockies does the following with that: They'll notify the public schools they have a contract with that a new teacher has arrived, the public schools pay for the books etc etc. for about 5000 RMB to Rockies. Once they have received the money, you will be fired, so basically they just used you to cover for classes some other teacher couldn't do and you will be treated like crap. Thanks for nothing basically. First they give you a contract which didn't even state the start and end date, which already start you think about this place. I've been teaching for one week and they already decided to fire me after one week. I've spoken to other teachers at Rockies, everybody got a work permit before they arrived and never got in China with a tourist visa first. That's bullshit. You aren't allowed to work with a tourist visa in China, if the immigration catches you, you are screwed. he assistant that joins your classes (assistant is usually from Rockies) is not even a qualified teacher, they always have criticsm about your teaching style while they are not even teachers for god's sake!! How do they know? And the weird thing is, my manager said that one of my assistants is not a good assistant, so why do you keep her employed at Rockies then. Rockies should fire her too then, but no, they fire the foreigner, because they like to make abuse of you and they are litterally slave drivers. They do not even cover the hours you make from going to school A to school B, which a good school should cover for. Terrible benefits ,starting pay and raises were both really bad, too low salary, long working hours, no breaks between the classes ( Unless it is lunch break ) . No one is held to a standard of accountability.Basically the management does not support others, they like to challenge their teachers .Lies all around .They can terminate the contract without even a discussion and without paying you a penny . President is a dummy, he lacks administrative and decision taking skills.[/quote]
