Imagine my joy when I got offer to teach in UAE: Very Happy

Imagine my pain when I went to Daves ESL Cafe and searched "Footprints" and "Kaplan" on the same page: Mad

No one, and I mean NO ONE, has anything good to say about Kaplan-- including ME! When I worked for Kaplan last year, they kept me to substitute for teachers who had summer vacations! They led me to believe I would have a month long class and I would teach eager foreign exchange students who were a pleasure to teach. I taught for only 4 days. I stole a book from them and sold it on Amazon. I made almost as much money from the sale.

I looked at the waiver and release of liability agreement Footprints wants me to sign. Here's a tip: if a company wants you to sign a waiver and release of liability, DON'T SIGN THE FRIGGIN THING! Evil or Very Mad A company that says, "We don't want you to sue us in court," is the company you DON'T want to work for.

This is what happens when Arabs let evil companies contract out their hiring process. Someone at the top gets rich and we at the bottom get the scraps Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation
