Q: Looking for a job? Beware Guiyang prime International School

What is the worst possible job?    Is there one worse than this?

Guiyang prime International School

 

1) All the foreign teachers are illegal working on family visa.  They think its okay because the leaders lie to them they insist they are experts and tell them it is okay to work on family visa because of the virus.

2) The government knows and told me to leave the school because they would mess up my visa.

3) The school has no principle the woman running the school used to manage a hotel.

4)  They have no idea how to run a school and all the teachers laugh about it.

5)  The manager is angry with me because I wouldn't give up my work visa and work on a family visa.

6)  The government officials helped me finish my visa.  Finally it took over four months for them to transfer my visa from another school to Guiyang prime International School.  The school does not care at all about the work visa they think it is nonsense.

7)  She cheated me out of the last months pay.

8)  She charged an additional 3000 as a cleaning fee for an old dumpy apartment.

9)  She gives me a bad reference on the phone and makes up fake stuff such that I can not get another job.

10) The manger tried to force me to do personal chores such as walk his dog and clean his apartment.

 

 

I think this is the worst possible school, they ruined my life.

Have you ever heard of a worse school than

Guiyang prime International School?

 

Please do not go to this school.

If you do not believe me and you do interview at this school ask to see the foreign teachers work cards.  This will tell the truth.  Swing by the immigration office after the interview and ask about the school. This school wants to hire teachers illegally that are on family visa.  The government knows and they are very upset.

 ... better ask to see School's authorization for foreign hire every school in China must posses to be able to sponsor Working permit and Z visa for a foreigner.

It's a A4 form sheet written in Chinese with several red, gov. stamps.

You should ask to see that certificate (or get a file of it ...) at the first interview. If school cannot produce the paper, they cannot hire you legally, i.e. with only right, Z working visa ...

 

I worked in Bijie, Guizhou, in 2016/17 and ... all schools in the city competed, which one will have more candidates at the enrollment, so school with the foreign English teacher on board would have a higher no. of applicants/students ...

 

There are some Public schools in Guizhou owned by the gov., but most of the schools there are under private ownership. They all carry 'Public' attached in the name, but the real owner (and manager) is either one or more private individuals.

 

Less than 3-months after my start (i.e. end of the enrollment ...), School's Board, behind which was the owner, i.e. leader issued Termination notice for some invented reasons as 1. English classes aren't interesting ...; 2. Students sleep in the classes; and I forgot the 3rd one, but there were 3 termination reasons..

At my Q to the Board, what should I do to prevent students' napping during the classes, Board demanded I must punish the kids ...

I've imagined, I would be an American teacher as then was a start of the tensions between USA and China ... and kid would return home and say to her/his father: "Foreign (American) teacher took my chair and made me stand for the entire class ..." or "Foreign teacher slapped me with the wooden stick ...".

Most of the fathers in USA would return to the school armed, looking for the teacher ... , so I've declined Board's demand to punish the kids in my classrooms.

 

Next day, I ringed SAFEA in Guiyang and told them about Board's demand and troubles I have at the private school in Bijie.

'SAFEA' stands for Foreign Expert Bureau in short, which issued Working permits and Foreign Expert Certificates to the foreign teachers. FEC was a document about the "gov.'s authorization to the carrier for work in China" before 2017 Labour law changes. We had to show FEC together with the passport to the cops in China at ID-ing.

 

I had to contact SAFEA at every single school I've worked in China, mostly 'cause of the Schools' contract disrespect, violations. We even had a weblink of Provincial SAFEA's HQs with addresses and contact phone no.s' all around China posted at one of my threads here, i.e. "my-SAFEA ...." surprise

Once, SAFEA determined FT's complaint is sound, they've dialled the School in question and one (FT) could experience changes in the school's behaviour immediately. SAFEA's call to the school usually happened in less than 24-hours after the complaint was filled, i.e. very-efficient-my-SAFEA ... .

 

Long story short, kids in Bijie were 'permitted' to sleep in my classes and I completed 1-year contract..

 

School on the other hand, hired a FT, who would/could flew to China from USA, Canada, UK, Oz, NZ or S. Africa ... and then just conveniently get fired after 3-months of work for some lollipop reasons, i.e. TCS or "Traditional Chinese scumbaggery".

 

When I understood all the details and real purpose of my hire in Bijie, I went and studied the signed contract School issued to me.

One part of the contract was:

" ... party B (FT) is permitted to have no more than 10-days of sick leave fully paid per whole contract duration .."

At my first sick leave, they've never required any MD's certificates or anything as proof of my sickness, so I would usually just phone in and tell them I am ill and can't attend scheduled classes for that day or two.

When teacher is missing at some class or whole day, School is required to assign replacement teacher, who must be payed for an extra class or two ...

In other words, every teacher's sick leave is doubled cost for the school ...

I phoned the school no more than 10-times usually at my the most busiest days ... as I read in the School's contract ... about 10-days ..

I've anticipated, I will be most likely shortened for the flight ticket refund, so I was instead 'ill', sleeping long day sleeps while collecting the full pay ... , money is money ... 

Otherwise, I had less than 10 sick leave days in 8-years of working in China, if I don't include all "illnesses" I've experienced in Bijie.  

 

You can play a game with me, butT .. once I accept yer play, you're gonna lose.

Zhongtian Beijing Primary School in Guiyang is also a terrible school. Probably best to avoid Guiyang altogether.
