    I worked at Kang Chiao Bilingual School full-time

    Pros

    -cheap cost of living -students are great -good co workers

    Cons

    -far from Shanghai -boring rural city -no classroom supplies given -dirty bathrooms -awful management -can't leave campus throughout the day when you have free time -director doesn't care about the students -clock in/clock out system like we're working at McDonald's -school does not respect teachers AT ALL -everything is disorganized -work on weekends from time to time -no curriculum -ITS A JOKE OF A SCHOOL

    Advice to Management

    Hire foreign teachers for admin positions as well!!! Listen to your staffs concerns. Show some appreciation for the hard work we all put forward. I will never recommend a friend to come here because of my awful experience with this school.

    Cons

    - Huaqiao Economic Development Zone is a tiny (relatively) town that does not boast a lot of amenities. It is 2 hours away from Shanghai which is good, but at a distance that is not always convenient. -Lots of PD that is not relevant. Each department is required to have a certain amount of hours of PD which leads to teachers being required to sit at meetings that are not relevant or helpful. -In Asia there can be...

    Advice to Management

    Help your teachers get resources! If you make something a requirement, don't make it difficult to produce it.

    I worked at Kang Chiao Bilingual School

    Pros

    Elementary is a great place to be if you are really interested in growing as a teacher. I saw lots of changes over the two year period I was there. Great support from staff. Great facilities at school.

    Cons

    The leave system is not great at all. You get extra days if you sign up for another year.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your leave system for teachers.

      I worked at Kang Chiao Bilingual School full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      cheap rent - that is it

      Cons

      You have to ask so many questions at this school, nothing is communicated to you. The staff here no very little English, very hard to engage in covo. The food is disgusting - bones all through the meat and its not fresh and healthy. You must clock in and out before specific times or you will not be paid full amount. The gym is tiny and very dirty. The staff here treat you like you are 5 years old and not a adult, they...

      Advice to Management

      Learn better English or have people put in place to communicate with their English speaking staff. Stop treating this place like a military camp and start treating them like children. Look after your staff and reward them.

        I have been working at Kang Chiao Bilingual School full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        There is a large community of co-workers, including foreigners and locals, who are really great people.

        Cons

        1) Management will occasionally skim some money off the top of your paycheck and there's no way to "prove" it, per say, because management won't provide you with an itemized pay stub with detailed info about deductions, payments, etc. 2) The information you get from your direct boss (i.e., middle management) will sometimes be totally contradictory to the real policies that are actually implemented. 3) There is a...

        If all you care about is making money, get out of education.

        Pros

        Kang Chiao is a great place to work. I've been here two years and coming back next year for a third. Great administration and the children are absolutely wonderful.

        Cons

        You're a long way from home as a foreigner, but I have few cons. It's like any place else...it is what you make of it.
