Anyone who has experience with them or info on them would be great. I would love to know there reputation as a school to work for and if I should go with the job - I don't want to take the job without know they're reputatio!!!

Any info would be very helpful!

Alpha Beta
The address I have for this school is in Tien Mue, Taipei.
This school has been around for a few years. I have 7 complaints reported over the last 8 years. Two of these were confirmed.
Three complaints were made about keeping work deposits in excess of 30,000Nt over a one year period.
Other issues were low pay, rude/oppressive management and not enough hours. I have an old contract from a former teacher, about five years ago, it is depressing just to read.
There have been no reports in the last two years, I suspect they have either started hiring through an agent or cleaned up their act.
My recommendation is that you proceed with caution and talk to as many foreign teachers there as possible about potential problems.
Good Luck
A.

Thanks for the info!!!

I took the job - talked to one of the teachers and heard that the bad rep could be from one of the directors who deals with other schools in the city and not the one in Tien Muo. Hopefully it will be ok and i'll proceed with caution for sure!

Thanks
