When I was in Chengdu, I actually found avocados. It was in a big fruit and veggie market. They were like 30 RMB each...so pretty expensive but worth it!

I've recently moved to Guangzhou and saw avocados at the local Metro wholesale store. I'm not sure about the price, but there are Metro stores throughout China.

Avocados are expensive as hell here. In the markets I've seen like 68-100rmb per 500g. But in Shanghai, there is a lady that is known as the Avocado Lady who has a market and sells them cheap. Occasionally some street vendors will have them for 8-10rmb a piece as well.

Avocados are everywhere try the market place and those newly built japanese style market places. Any Jenny Lou's should carry them and the cheapest you will find it is around 7 to 8 rmb. The most expensive one's I saw were probably around 12 to 13 kuai.

Sanyuanli Market (三源里菜场) near Liangmaqiao is the place to go. Bought avocados for 8RMB a piece last week, but I think I could have gotten them cheaper.

A:Most of the companies still use traditional methods of hiring such as, interviews, resume reviews, background screening, etc. HR professionals still follow the several, decades old pattern of personality assessments but in a quicker and efficient way, which will yield accurate results. Employee assessments tools are extremely beneficial in realizing the results are quantifiable and go a long way in ascertaining the work style and behavioral attributes of potential employees before they set foot into your company. In-fact they take out the guesswork involved in recruiting the employees who can work together.  The major benefit of the assessment tools is not confined to the hiring process, but also used as an effective tool of employee retention. The assessment tool will identify the gap between employee work style and job needs. They provide you a road map for recruitment of prospective employees and the further development of essential traits such as, leadership ability, individual development, team communications and conflict resolution. It will also help the employees to make better, satisfying and successful career choices. Nowadays more and more organizations are integrating personality assessments with skill tests, leadership evaluations, 360-degree assessment, evaluation and feedback, disc personality profile and behavioral assessment. -- LoganMountgarre
