Blacklisted: GDOU, Guangdong Ocean University in Zhanjiang ChinaGuangdong Ocean University in Zhanjiang China

If you have an opportunity to teach at Guangdong Ocean University in Zhanjiang China, ((((BEWARE)))))
The college is a beautiful university but the administration and foreign teachers are so difficult to contend with.

First off the administration.
Late paying: they say theyll pay on the end of the month, most always they pay over half way into the following month.
Furnished on campus apartment: things get broken and the NEVER repair it. I had to pay for a new shower heater, no water machine they said they will furnish. Lead paint peeling and chipping off the walls. Every weekend the electric and water goes off because their still developing the campus. If you need assistence they never answer your calls or reply your emails and phone text messages
The never refund your travel money from your homeland and no pay to return home.

Second is the foreign teachers:
Working there with the foreign teachers are difficult to contend with as well. they will come off as friends but all at the same time they are exploiting you so they can make problems in your work life such as relationship there is like they worry youll be more successful teacher than them, more liked by the students, I believe its a jealously thing Im not sure about their actions honestly. Telling students lies so they wont like you, making you look folish in english corners.

My overall experience at that college was the worse job Ive had in China, I loved the high fashion appearance of the college and the hard working students. It is a beautiful college,but its a very ugly working experience once you get inside and see the real college atmosphere.
If your thinking about working there, Think again, Its not worth the stress when theirs many other colleges in China that offer a stress free career. "I hope this is useful and helps you to have a happy future in China"
