Re: Warning! Fun Language Ltd, Thailand
Yes can confirm that this company has a lot of internal problems and will say anything just to get you to sign a contract....
some problems i found were that i was promised a work permit which never came which meant i was illegally working for the duration of my contract, this is very unprofessional and in fact a risk to foriegn workers if they get caught.
I also found that the salary advertised was also not accurate- i was told 42000 baht a month and not once did i get this amount, and considering you dont get paid during holidays (one of which is nearly three months) it actually equates to under 32000 if you take it into a year long perspective.
perhaps the biggest joke is the lack of sick days, you are working with kids and it is ineviabtle that you will get sick....if you do u can kiss good bye to your bonus which you probably wont get anyway as it subjectional and works as in a populairty contest....never before have a i worked with a company who punishes its employees for being sick....
the culutre and work environemnt is very testing, cultural difference rules and a hierachy exists but it has little effect as most of the staff have big problems with the faceless man of the organization (Tongchai) he will be nice to your face but at the end of the day he only cares if you are brining profits to his family business.
please avoid this compnay and work for one where u can make a difference and feel appreciated for your work, i remeber i got critiqued because i forgot how to sing twinkle star and actually was deducted points on a review for this.....please please please heed my advice and stay clear of this toxic compant unless you want to work 10 hour days for a company who doesnt care the slightest for its employees well being...
this companies days are numbered and you would be silly to get a job here when there in a glut of teaching jobs in thailand
STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS
