I've been working at Langrow School in Lima for a couple of months and they're not paying me. Every time I go to the office they fob me off with an excuse and tell me to come back in 3 days. The same thing is also happening to one of my colleagues there and she also tells me that they have a reputation for doing this.
Has anybody else experienced problems with this "school"? I'm guessing that this behavior is quite common in Perú.

BTW As you can probably guess, I do not recommend working at Langrow. Aside from the no pay policy they send you all over Lima (with no travel expenses) and have a ridiculous time-wasting compulsory training program. That said, my students are nice and my lessons are normally interesting so not ALL bad but still not worth the hassle.

Won't be the first time. langrow doesn't exactly have a good rep. They promise visas, but send you to dangerous areas and don't pay.

It's not that common in Peru, most places pay, Langrow just isn't one of them.
