Yes, I am asking many questions, haha.

Some of you might have noticed a school called SSTC being advertised on jobsdb and other websites.

I was wondering if anyone had heard anything about it before.

One thing that stood out to me was this conversation:

Me: How many foreign teachers are working there and how long have they been with you?

SSTC: We hire 3-5 foreign teachers. Right now, we are looking for all new teachers.

Coincidence or poor employee retention...That is what I am trying to figure out.

Whattodo,

You wrote:

Seems like BAD English communication, a new school or they go through teachers like they drink tea / coffee. (Ask them how long have they been operating, or get a legal eagal to research their history.)

Coincidence or poor employee retention...That is what I am trying to figure out.

Could possibly be as you suspect.

I once had an interview with this school, and have met some of the former teachers. There seems to have been an en masse clear out of previous teachers and a fair amount of dissatisfaction with the iron fisted female owner.

I also gather that teachers are expected to prepare their own material and text books are not provided.

The salary is on the low side, but this is a 'shopping mall' school, one that has not been able to get as powerful as Shines, Dimensions and Tyndale.

The salary is on the low side - should be looking closer to SGD4000.

SSTC - wouldn't bother (I turned them down with confidence).
