China School Blacklist: Warning: Language Link China ReviewWarning: Read this first before even considering joining


In case there is any confusion this is the company I'm writing about


The only positive thing I can possible share is that they pay you on time which is what you should expect from any company. The teachers I worked with were great, friendly and supportive. Management is the opposite of that.


If you like being told that you have freedom to be creative with your lessons and then told made to stick rigidly to the material then you’ve found your school. If you like management promoting each other for gross incompetence then you’ve found your school. If you like being resource deprived and having any request for resources closely scrutinised than you’ve found your school. If you like being made to teach classes that you’re not qualified to teach and not paid any extra for it then you’ve found your school. If you like controlling, intelligent deficient bosses that cause more problems than they solve then you’ve found your school.


I've never worked in a place where I've hated the management so much. Other people may have different experiences. But, if like me you're the type of person that like to be given their resources and left to just get on with the job instead of having every single decision be scrutinised or require justification no matter how trivial well I think you know what to do. Ultimately it's up to you if you still want to join. Just be warned: whatever they tell you in the interview is misleading at best so be careful.  


And if Language Link are reading this I have this to say to you: Do not reward incompetent management with promotions; it's disheartening to see things like that. Do not apply your rules singularly over all your schools. Recognise the differences in them and act accordingly. Enforcing all rules for the sake of enforcing them is retarded. Don't skip on resources. If you want your teachers to do the job that you're paying them for provide them with the proper resources and don't piggyback on theirs. It's cheap. And when your employees complain don't ignore it. That way you can avoid another mass exodus of teaching staff. And for Christ sake learn to delegate tasks and employ the right amount of staff. Don't employ the bare minimum and over work yourselves and your teachers. It's ridiculous.
