I don't think any of you know anything about China. She gives you a good job with competitive salary especially for first teachers, comfortable accommodation and much more. Stop complaining and suck it up. There are only a few complains on the internet out of hundreds of teachers they've placed.

You have no one to blame but yourselves.

You have probably no idea in the least what this woman had to go through, just like chaofan and the rest backing up your so called angel Rebecca Tang which i personally see as a DOG. Firstly the contracts that the agents give you to sign is illegal, threatening you with a ban in china when certain conditions are not met, secondly the agents know that you can only work with a Z visa. So don`t back agents when they CLEARLY BREAK THE LAW.
I see after Magic has proved you wrong, you are completely silent like a scared little puppy running with its tail between its legs. You people make me sick the way you treat foreigners, you get away with anything and you don`t have any remorse for what you have done. Money is the only thing you care about and it will be your downfall in the end. What goes around comes around.

My roomie worked for Rebecca at China ESL for six weeks and quit after they told him to use different names every month when he answered emails and the phone from over 800 ads she spams all over the internet. She operates under 23 different email addresses and over a dozen telephone numbers because China ESL is constantly being blacklisted all over the internet for years. Google "China ESL scam problems complaints" and you will find complaints going back to 2007!

My roomie said China ESL has such a bad reputation that they hire a hacker full-time to go around deleting all the negative posts online. In fact, I remember seeing some really nasty posts about her here about a year ago (and they have vanished) and there are still many at eslwatch and the beijinger.

This woman has zero ethics and her unbelievable contract speaks volumes. It even says in black and white that you will be "blacklisted" if you do not finish your contract with her! The only positive posts you see about her are posted by people who work for her pretending to be a happy, satisfied customer or teacher - in horrible English. Here above is just some of what I found about China ESL in only five minutes googling.

From what my roomie told me and what I read online, it is a wonder she is not in some Gansu prison behind bars by now. Her husband must be the police chief of Beijing! My roommate is so ashamed that he worked for China ESL that he never even mentions it on his resume. BTW... when he quit they did not want to pay him for his last two weeks and the only way he got paid was to mention all the above on Weibo and she finally paid him to shut up.

The China Teachers Alliance apparently does not think very highly of China ESL:

I'm currently working for Rebecca Tang in Sichuan province. Before working for her I'd already worked for different recruiters and schools in China for two years. Really she's not that bad. I've read all the horror stories and they all seem to come from the same type of people. Newly graduated or gap year college students that haven't ever really lived abroad before. When you go abroad there's a different way of doing things and you're gonna have to learn to adapt or you probably should just stay home. I wasn't expecting to pay a 3,000 yuan deposit for the 1st three months with her but that's because I overlooked it in the contract. If you sign a contract you don't really have the right to complain. I'm making 7,000 yuan a month and she's taking 3,000. So the school I'm working at is paying 10,000 a month for me. That's fair because she's a recruiter and of course she's supposed to take a percentage. If you signed a contract knowing how much you'd be making every month how can you get mad after finding out how much your recruiter takes from your salary? If you signed a contract that says you'll get payed 5,000 a month it doesn't matter if your recruiter makes 10,000 off of you a month because you already agreed to earn 5,000. Like I said I've worked for lots of other employers in China and the truth is no matter who you end up working for you'll be able to find something to complain about if you're looking at them with a western perspective. Rebecca Tang has been pretty decent in my opinion and I might end up working for her in the future after finishing my current contract with her.
