I worked at Marshall Cavendish Int full-time (Less than a year)
A few nice colleagues who have been bullied into the same situation. Otherwise, no pros at all.
Politics, politics, politics! Super long working hours (up to 2am is normal). No overtime pay. Expected to work over the weekend or during public holidays. If leaving work earlier than 9pm, need to ask for permission or be prepared to be called back to office while on the way home. Senior management is a bunch of Hitlers. Job scope might change without informing. Will also get reprimanded if not performing well in new job scope. No training provided either, expected to know everything. Direction from management changes frequently. Sometimes twice a day. It has come to a point where instructions/directions are so mixed up, nobody knows which is the latest. Salary is given just right above the minimum wage that allows you to claim OT. Colleagues are either in the same boat or backstabs you to save themselves. Cannot laugh or talk during work. Toilet break is a maximum of 2 1/2 minutes.
Advice to Management
What's the use? Already highlighted all these issues a long time ago. Nothing has been done and never will.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Marshall Cavendish Int (Singapore (Singapore)).
Interview was straight forward. There are 2 interview. One with the HQ people and the other is with the school that you will be based in. To prepare, imagine you're interviewing to be a teacher.
