I was contacted by these guys, they want me to come on short notice on a business visa. Here's the terrible job description, low pay plus split shift. Does Saudi even allow the 90 day visas anymore? If caught, the teacher would probably be left hanging in the wind. Sounds as dodgy as EdEx, but with terrible pay:

I've made quite a few typing mistakes on this site. After all , we all get tired, or type something too fast, but to have a typo like "Evenng" on an ad advertising English teachers is the best way to leave the OP guessing on weather (ha! see - a typo) or not he/she should take the position.

The ad also claims, "We are working on our US visas". Ha! That's rich!

It won't matter what any of us think; you're going to do what you want to do. If you were a person I deeply cared about, I would shake you around the head and shoulders until you start making more sense. The job market "out there" must be brutal.

I doubt KK is going to rush to take advantage of this one. At least they were honest that they will be having the teacher work illegally on a business visa.

Low low pay... though they aren't really requiring any credentials... though I wonder what they mean by "appropriate teaching qualification." All for the privilege of working from 9:00 in the morning to 9:00 a night... with a break in the middle of the day. Shocked

The working hours and salary are standard for private language schools in KSA. Entry level job and a way to get the foot in the door. The "business visa" is a bad deal through.

Split shifts are the norm, typically 9 t0 1 and 5 to 9
