I got a job offer from Berlitz Bratislava a few months ago and moved to Bratislava, Slovakia. The job offer was promising a salary range between 1200-1800 Euro. But the school wanted to reserve all my schedule. After a while I realised they don't fulfil their promise but they insist on me keeping full-time availability. The management was very disrespectful and unprofessional towards teachers; constantly patronising, mobbing and threatening. After I asked them fulfil their promise of full-time or change my availability to part-time, they pushed me to terminate the contract and pay a penalty to them. I didn't accept. They threatened me by reporting at police even though I am a European citizen. After I didn't listened to their threats and didn't accept to pay penalty, they suddenly banned me to enter their premises. They still have outstanding payments and I am still waiting to get them. If you want to have peace of mind while working, having a professional, supportive management, don't think to work there. Many other teachers suffer from their unprofessional, aggressive attitude towards teachers. Please don't get into their trap and ignore to approach them for a job. The process I go through with them costed me not only money, but also health and mental consequences.

Berlitz is not an employer to consider - anywhere.

Ditto what Scot said. Berlitz is and has always been a bottom feeder.
