I've noticed this chain expanding quite quickly around Moscow. There's a branch in a business centre near my house, and it looks quite swish - brand new building, nice decor, computer room, and bright classrooms with floor to ceiling windows. According to their website, they're hiring at the moment, offering blocked timetables of adult learners and a competitive salary, which seems suspiciously good. Does anyone know what they're like to work for?

Never actually worked for them myself, but have only heard bad things. What they offer and what they deliver appear to be very different - reality is split shifts and low pay. As I said, never worked for them myself, mainly due to what I was told.

Pretty low pay, last I heard, though that was about four years ago, or whenever they set up in Moscow. They did have really trendy glass whiteboards though, gasp!

i turned down a job offer with them not so long ago. They wanted 40+ hours across different locations for 45000r a month after tax. It would leave no time for privates and you would be exhausted working in different parts of the city to make up 40 classroom hours! The swish offices and the nice people i came across in the interview process could make up for the poor pay and long hours.
