Wishborn Global Communications
I just wanted to warn future teachers about this after getting out of a terrible situation with these people and I also wanted to see if this was a familiar story. First, Wishborn extends an offer of employment on the condition that you come immediately. What they don't mention until you get there is that you will be required to work illegally for a long time, a terribly risky situation as you will have to drive a company car for which you will be charged a lot of money. If you are caught you'll be deported and no one will help you. My apartment was filthy, and the work conditions are bad. The conversation job I was promised disappeared when I arrived and I was forced into another position that I didn't want. The expensive 'deposits' that the school wants are not returned as promised. When I needed to miss an office meeting because I was undergoing a stomach analysis at the hospital I was told I had to go to the meeting and skip the procedure. Then, when I announced that I would leave the company at the end of the school year, the boss made vague threats that I would not be permitted to leave. I really can't believe such an institution is allowed to send teachers into public elementary schools!
