Hi guys! Has anybody worked with them and would like to give me a review? I've been working for a bit more than a month, I did the health check, police check record and am waiting for my degree to get authenticated (they said 25 days the 24th of March).

I'm on a tourist visa now because they told me it's ok as they are doing my working permit. I told them several times I didn't want to work on a business visa or a student visa but with a proper working visa.

Yesterday I got a message on WeChat by the recruiter asking me if I wanted to work in another city... I asked her if she made a mistake since I'm already working here and it's all good..

She said silly things like "but here the air is better" (??). Now I'm wondering what's going on.. 3 weeks ago they posted an add asking for another teacher in the branch I'm working. Which was also weird since there are not enough kids for 3 teachers (we are currently 2).

Maybe they already knew by then that they can't get me a proper working permit but didn't care to let me know? I'm not native speaker so I can imagine with the new regulations there could be some problem..

Any review you can give to me is highly welcomed!

Is a third red flag needed here? This sounds like it can only get worse (as in a pink slip soon to be delivered?) and I am not sure I would hold out for the possibility of it getting better.
