Hi, i’ve been in Taiwan for almost 2 months now and haven’t been able to find an English teaching job as a native speaker. Almost everyday I sit in refreshing the same pages hoping something new will pop up. I’ve had a few interviews but the schools seem just awful.
I’m thinking of joining Hess as they have offered me $680 per hour for a minimum of 20 hours, but after hearing so many horror stories i’m also reluctant, but desperate times call for desperate measures. After agreeing to commit for one year, if the school is as bad as most reviews of Hess i’m wondering how difficult it would be to quit and if they are allowed to withhold my last pay? (If I give them warning when I quit)
FYI, I don’t intend to quit but I like to have the option of knowing I can be freed if I need to.
I was also told they might be able to make it not possible for me to get another job straight away and I would need to wait for the full year contract to end too. Is this correct?
