Avoid Bell as, though they used to be a great school to work for, they have not been paying on time for well over a year now.


Hmmm. I didn't know that and I've been working at Bell Gdansk for 5 1/2 years. When they pay is spelled out in the contract and they've always paid me on time.

Thanks for the advice Master Shake, I feel slightly less unprepared now!

This isn't the case at Bell Warsaw, unfortunately. I have heard it from multiple sources.

AliceB, it's gonna just come down to using common sense. The ESL industry in Poland (can't speak for other countries, I only worked in Poland) is a sketchy scene but there are honest ones out there. Problem is the ones that are always hiring tend to be more high risk. I'd suggest looking for smaller schools, it'll be easier to keep tabs on the management and develop relationships. Also in my experience the smaller schools pay better (less overhead?) and go through less teachers. I worked for a big school in Wroclaw and we had about a 30 percent turnover each year.
