Articles : Blondie_ commented on news Should You Use a Recruiter to Find a Teaching Job in China?

any 'recruiter' that requires you to sign something on arrival is clearly not to be trusted. On receipt of ANY Chinese document, it should be translated (and questioned) prior to signing. Likewise, never believe someone who says 'trust me' unless they have demonstrated they are trustworthy. The foreigner is a ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Blondie_ commented on news The Truth About Expat Salaries in China

The salaries currently on offer to foreign workers are abysmally low - there has not been a significant increase since I was working there, and certainly not one that has kept pace with inflation. China, with all it's restrictions and hoops for foreign workers to jump through is just not worth it, and the increased ... Full Comment>>

How to avoid "Bad" western food in China? Don't go to a 'Western' restaurant, then you won't be disappointed. I was 'treated' by local friends once that had a buffet. The food was passable. in the dessert section with a selection of fresh fruit. A friend, thinking they were being helpful offered to get a selection ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Blondie_ commented on news Can Switching Jobs in China Affect Your Prospects?

I should add that many chinese employers usually find a way to avoid paying you any bonus, citing some flaky breach of contract. Most foreign workers i knew stayed with bad employers, giving them the benefit of the doubt, often tolerating treatment that would have an employer up before an investigation. Remember ...

Articles : Blondie_ commented on news Can Switching Jobs in China Affect Your Prospects?

many (younger) Chinese employees 'hop' from job to job to the extent that sometimes the first thing you know is that they don't turn up for work. With the exception of foreign workers who are brought in by foreign companies, foreign work contracts are finite - never more that 1 year and often 6 months. If you are ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Blondie_ commented on news The Truth About Expat Salaries in China

the so-called 'income disparity' does not stand up to scrutiny. While on paper, the foreigner might have a higher 'salary', the local more than makes up for it (especially in schools/universities) with all the money-earning side-gigs they have - and that are usually part of their responsibilities. Most of my local ... Full Comment>>

Also, before signing, ASK QUESTIONS about EVERYTHING, and don't take evasion or silence as an answer - or a 'cultural difference'. Any employer should know what to expect from non-Chinese, so your cultural expectations must be respected too. Full Comment>>

Articles : Blondie_ commented on news How Expats Can Find and Keep Chinese Friends

many chinese only want foreign 'friends' for status or how 'useful' they can be (usually financially), hence the (childish) demands from them to 'be my friend'. It is rare that friendship with a chinese person will develop beyond the superficial. Any lasting friendship i have with a chinese person developed ... Full Comment>>

sadly too, many people 'focus on themselves' and are so self-absorbed that their narcissistic behaviour renders them oblivious to others. This kind of behaviour is reinforced by social-media and emotional dependence on smart-phones. There is a balance between self-care and empathy for others. I would never brag ... Full Comment>>

Thanks for your reply - and i could add thanks for replying by mentioning points I raised AND being polite. Sadly on this site there have been some posters who prefer to throw 'insults' rather than reply in open conversation (and not even in English !!) I have found it is possible to be polite, courteous, nice AND ... Full Comment>>

good to hear another perspective, however your experience in the work=place is that of North America and can not be used as an example of how all non-Chinese work-places operate. articles like the above generalise WAY too much and this one plays into the Chinese expectation of non-Chinese stereotypes. For example in ... Full Comment>>
