Do you think it's common to get fired from jobs in China?

In my experience, it's almost impossible. The Chinese don't like confrontation, but everyone has their limits.

What are the biggest deal breakers for employers here? It seems like someone would have to be a real Jack AZZ to get fired from teaching anywhere here.

Any good stories of losers getting fired from training centers here?

I'm just wondering what it takes...

I doubt it's common, but it probably happens more often than you'd think.

I think it mostly comes down to the administration/type of school your in... If it's a money mill and you're getting paid cheaply, you might have more leeway with being a bad teacher, negligent, what not..

Just my thoughts, not speaking from any actual experience

"getting fired from pre - school"

This is the thread title. So, what is the situation? Why is the OP asking about getting fired in general?

Happens but not very common probably. And at the pre-school level getting fired is meaningless since there are about as many pre-schools as people in China. Just take your pick.

You pretty much have to whip out some porno or come in pissed-drunk and vomit everywhere in front of all of the parents in order to get canned. There is a teacher at my school who can't get any hours. He works literally 1.5 hours a week. He still gets a full salary. The school refuses to can him even though they are losing thousands by keeping him on. Seriously, it's super difficult.

It does happen but it's not very common.

The cost and trouble of finding a replacement mid-year is what scares most schools off from firing bad teachers.

I've seen a couple teachers get fired at other schools, one was just a worthless drunk and the other was culled after the company she worked for was losing business because of how bad she was.

I've never had to personally fire a teacher but there were a couple times I would've liked to but, as I said, the cost and difficulty of finding a replacement mid year made that not really feasible.
