Are Meten English Schools in China good places to work? Their on-line ads look good, but what's the reality?! I'm looking for my first ESL job, I want to work in Beijing teaching adults and am searching from the UK. Any advice would be great. Thanks.

Your question is way too general. If you read some threads you will understand that a mctraining school is operated differently and by different managers in most locations.

means metan in Location A could be MUCH DIFFERENT than in Location B - even though the schools are only 7 miles apart.

You need to ask about specific schools in specific locations - down to the street address - to get a reply that could be useful and pertain to the location you are interested in.

I TRIED to apply to Meten but the process was interminable. I was sent to four different reps (they all wanted the same documents). Then I had a 45 minute phone interview. Then they asked me to submit an interactive lesson plan. Then they wanted audios and videos of me in action. Then......
Then I told them I didn't think I was right for them.

I should mention that I was out of the country, but if they're that anal during the hiring process it doesn't bode well for the workplace atmosphere. I suppose you could say that they are diligent in screening applicants, but anybody could fake all of the stuff they wanted. The contract has a probation period, so.........
