Don't only look at which one is easier to open a bank account, look also at the services they offer.

For me, all the local Chinese banks (Bank of China, Bank of Communication, etc), they have really poor services.

I would advise you the China Merchant Bank.

Don't choose Bank of China. They suck big time. ICBC is slightly better and they usually have more counters open which means slightly less waiting times. But in general, Chinese banks leave a lot to be desired, to put it mildly.

I had China Merchant in Qingdao and its wire transfer service was really good. I have ICBC now which is slightly more of a hassle but there are many more ICBC locations in Beijing than China Merchant, so yeah. 

 

I once heard that ICBC has more branches than any other bank in Beijing. Not sure if that is true though.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
