Q: Where is a good place to find reliable, high quality Chinese staff to hire?

I am looking for a Chinese Sales and Marketing agent to work for my company.  The salary starts at 7k RMB monthly + commission.  Any idea where I could find the kind of high-quality staff I am looking for?

wouldn't trust any Chinese agent to supply sales staff - you would probably end up with people very like a regular poster here who claims to be a 'sales manager' yet seems to know next to nothing about understanding people or the proper meaning of common terms used in sales.

 

unless you have a person on your existing staff who knows how to conduct proper interviews, your best bet is maybe contacting your embassy.

I know mine has a section that will point me to a reliable network for doing just this, and not rely on a local agent that has not been proven to be trustworthy.

 

Local agents will by and large just scam you and send anyone, regardless of ability or experience, just to pocket the fee.

 

Better a foreign educated Chinese person than one who has never left China.

I can only advise you on what not to do, as it is a case of  caveat emptor for most things in China, and hiring staff is no exception.

 

All i can say is 'good luck'

Try GZstuff.com classifieds or a similar website in your city. Easier to find English speakers and recommendations.  I've found mine thru referrals or from similar companies.

for that salary you are only left with those who don't know what they are doing unfortunately.

 

I found that sales who knows what they are doing usually not working below 20000 + commission.

sad but true

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
