Thanks for the heads up. I had an offer with them and they wanted me to go on a tourist visa and change it once I got there. They didn’t ask me to bring my tefl or letters verifying two years experience teaching but they still wanted my ba degree legalized so I’m guessing they were gonna do the same thing with me; apply me for some job that’s not teaching insofar as the visa. I’ve had a couple other offers in China and always they ask for either the Tefl or two years rec letters if it’s a teacher z visa. After I read this and some other posts about landlords and not being able to register with police due to the wrong visa, I told HR at Elan I would only work there with the correct legal kind of visa and only if they found me an apartment and had it waiting when I arrived and in their name. They said oh yeah sure no problem we’ll get the proper visa. Abt the apartment they said they’d find one, put it in my name, and deduct the money from my paycheck including the standard 2 or 3 months rent / deposit. I said no, given what happened to another teacher being left homeless because you guys got the wrong visa, I want it in the schools name and I don’t wanna pay deposits etc (ie the standard situation for teaching in korea). They said, get this, “we can’t do that because it wouldn’t be fair to other teachers.” Lol. I asked them why they don’t just help all their teachers out that way if their teachers desire it. I told em sorry but given your reputation I can’t have it any other way. Of course they refused so I told em buh-bye!
