ACI on the other hand does not vet its clients very well. I ended up taking a gig thru them a few years back and ended up having to sue the bastard they hooked me up with.



I couldn't agree more. Candy from ACI set me up with a job in Taoyuan and it's been a nightmare from day one. Nearly everything that ACI told me about the employer has turned out to be untrue.

Even though I was lied to from the start, since I'm quitting and 'breaking the contract', they're still trying to make me pay the school's 10,000 NT cancellation fee. ACI claims it 'fully performed its duty,' so I'm out their fee as well.

tl;dr Thanks to ACI, I'm leaving Taiwan with LESS MONEY than when I started. Candy is a terrible recruiter, ACI is a bad company.

IMHO opinion, any agency advertising illegal jobs should be banned from this site. The main perp seems to be Asian Consultants.

Unless of course, they are willing to state in their ads that the kindy they are advertising is an illegal job. :ohreally:

Recruiters for NET ESL Positions in Taiwan

Postby Bajanwoman75804 » 04 Dec 2012, 05:45

Hello All!
I want to know can anyone recommend reputable recruiters to find an ESL position in Taiwan as
a Native English Teacher. I'm looking to begin work either in late August or early September. Thank you
in advance, for your help. Have a pleasant week.

Sincerely,

Nia

Bryan Wu's jobs are mostly ones no one wants, because it is always the same ad over and over again for the same school, if those schools are good, they wouldn't need a replacement every 3 months or so.

Also, ACI used to have Julie running the show, she got a lot of negative feedbacks so her name don't get pop up that often anymore, this might be her tactic of stay low key and use different names just to draw the google search negative reviews away, but yeah, ACI's Candy also got pretty bad reviews. Foreigners would be better off and making more money themselves just finding jobs own their own.

Did you ever get a job from Bryan Wu?

I got a decent gig from him over a year ago, and it is at a decent school.

I went to interviews set up by him, which was a school that don't even have AC on during the summer, oh yeah, it's not Bryan's problem, it's the schools, but again, it was set up by Bryan...so where is the decent school you're talking about? Would you be able to elaborate on that one? He posts on many facebook groups for the same jobs over and over again within 2-3 months, don't tell me those school have a teacher finish up their contract every 2-3 months now.

I really do not know about the current positions he is posting?

My dealings with him were over a year ago, and the school is decent. All the A/C you want. :discodance:

Agencies are not out to scam people. They are basically the middleman. You're new to Taiwan and they can help you find a job quickly. They show you lots of schools, some are junk, some are golden. You choose the schools eventually, so don't be blaming the agencies. I'm just saying.
