Q: What's your input on Rockies English School?

Hi everybody, 

 

It's been a while, quite a long while. I would like to ask you, whether this school it worths to work for. They seem to be serious through the job add but I need to hear from your experience how reliable they are and how do they treat their teachers.

 

They claim that "We are not an agent or intermediary, and the locations that we recruit for are either directly owned or partnered schools that use the Rockies designated curriculum. We have recruited more than 1000 teachers in the last 15 years. We can provide teacher references to prospective teachers. Rockies English School is founded by Canadians and currently operates different locations throughout China. Our vision is to set the highest quality English training standards for Chinese students. We are looking for responsible, dedicated, energetic, and creative people who feel they can contribute to raising educational standards in ESL learning."

 

Is that as they claim to be or not? Any insight will be very much appreciated. Thank you all for taking your time to share your thoughts.

Rockies has a well deserved horrible reputation in the business. They have the habit of registering their employees under fake job titles, oftentimes through seedy visa operators spinkled all over China and, of course, when the PSB comes to check they're nowhere to be found.

And also, you can forget about your last paycheck.

" "We are not an agent or intermediary, and the locations that we recruit for are either directly owned or partnered schools that use the Rockies designated curriculum."

 

This is a new semi-scam scheme. "We are not an agency but you will sign a contract with us blah blah"...

 

Avoid them and:

 

Zhejiang Helen/ZhejiangWendy or whatever name they're using at the moment

Haida

Echo English

Maple Leaf

China Youth International

 

If you are not signing a contract directly with the school, stay away.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
