Not much info about them at all on this forum. I recently received an e-mail from them. They are a placement agency for all types of schools in Guangzhou and Dongguan. It seems that they dictate your working conditions (salary and working hours) rather than the individual schools though, which I thought it strange.

This school is very BAD.....

I know of 3 people from Oxford who came to this school to teach. All different races and different backgrounds. Once they arrived, school didn't pay for anything, not even hotels or visa fee and did not refund. They were all rejected. One lawyer because they thought he was over qualified. They could have told him that in the states. One Vietnamese, hair was ear length and he wouldn't cut it and another black guy whose hair was too long and did not cut it.

Once they arrived, the contract negotiated over the internet was reduced less than half. Be careful if you want to teach here.

From my experience a company calling itself "Start Consulting" and "China Teach English" recruit for this place. They are equally unprofessional and I advise not to seek work through them.
