The foreigner - 2017-01-26
In response to Daqing Joy school (Steven)

There were rumors of a former teachers mysterious death. I was able to
corroborate a few things. The Canadian national in question was unstable and tried to
commit suicide and spent some time in the hospital. After his time in the hospital he
died on a train from Daqing to Harbin the capital of the Provence. He was on his way to
the airport but never made it off the train! What's interesting is its only a two hour
train ride or so. Also he was being supervised! He left the hospital just fine. Alarm
bells! When I signed my contract with the school the insurance clause was specifically
covered for death on a train. Stay the fuck away from this school! A dishonest Chinese
woman with the name of Ruby is in charge of foreign teachers. She has probably changed
her English name since but who knows. Godbless

It looks like they are paying more to sweeten things up. Accidental insurance!!! Are they still using the same insurer? If anyone has information to report please do! It looks like the evil 'Ruby' and the gang are still running things.

'Ana' and not 'Ruby' but still has the same email. Nice Try Ruby and co.

Oh and if you try and silence me Great Offer From Joy Daqing, I'll post your contracts.

Hello from the tremendous city of Daqing China. My name is Simon from the U.K, I have been working for Joy School in Daqing for over 8 years. I am very happy with my decision to come to Daqing to work for Joy School. It truly is a great city to work and live in, and Joy is a good company to work for. The people are extremely helpful, friendly, and kind. I like Daqing and know you will too. I hope that you will join us. We are currently looking for English speakers from England, Canada, America, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland and so on. We need 2 immediate teachers.

Daqing is the oil capital of China; it is located in the northeast in Heilongjiang province and is very close to the provincial capital city of Harbin. The air is good and the traffic is smooth, not as crowded as other big cities! The climate in Daqing is quite nice, hot in summer and cold in winter. Daqing is well equipped for the winter and everywhere has hot heating systems, the only time you will need to wear your coat and sweater is when you are outside walking, skiing or ice skating etc.
Although it is in Chinese you can use Google translate or something similar to help out.

Joy school has their own curriculum, text books, game files and tools like hammers, balloons, flash cards, dice, etc. The class size is small (between 15 and 20 children). Your classes will be assisted by a Chinese co-teacher (who speaks English very well). Teaching times are as follows: Tuesday to Friday between 5.30pm - 7.20pm Saturday and Sunday between 8.00am - 6.50pm. Monday will be your day off.
Joy has its special concept for children's English teaching. The children are from kindergartens and primary schools in the local area and we teach them English using methods such as games, songs, and stories. The programs are very well created.
Joy needs teachers who are hard-working, punctual, easy going and energetic. Obviously experience and a degree are preferable, but not essential as Joy has an excellent TEACHER TRAINING COURSE; English teaching guides are also available. In the early stages your Chinese co-teachers will observe your classes and give necessary guidance if needed, and there is always a Chinese co-teacher to be your assistant in the class. To be honest it's actually flexibility and a positive attitude that count.
The salary is 11000-13000RMB for 70 hours per month teaching, with 4 office hours a week (lesson planning) and 2 hours of class observing a month, extra teaching hrs over 70 will be paid at 100RMB/class.
Pay day is the 25th of the Month and I'm happy to say it is NEVER late.
On completion of a 12 Month contract Joy school will offer 9000RMB airfare reimbursement.
Joy school has holidays on Labor Day 1 day, National Day around 7 days, Summer Vacation(12-18days) and Chinese New Year(about 15days). All holidays are paid except summer holiday.
You will be entitled to free Chinese lessons (1 hour per week). Pls be kindly advised only people in Beijing and Heilongjiang can speak standard Mandarin.
On arrival you will get free accident and medical insurance.
All apartments are fully furnished with a TV, DVD player, refrigerator, washer, air-conditioner, microwave, utensils, free fast broadband connection, a queen sized bed with fresh clean bedding. All utility bills are paid for by Joy school. Your apartment is not shared.
So why choose Joy School Daqing?
The school is fantastic, the people are warm and friendly and the cost of living is not high, you can expect to spend on average 2000-3000RMB per month which leaves you plenty to save for back home or travelling. I can honestly say Joy School Daqing treats all teachers fairly and will go out of their way to help you.
Should you require further information including photos please don't hesitate to contact either myself or Ada.
(Ada, administration staff of Joy )
Hope to see you soon!

Video evidence coming soon...

Warning to all those seeking employment
