    I worked at Web International English full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great adult students who were really eager to learn. The atmosphere in adult classes was amazing.

    Cons

    Useless leadership that were unqualified and lacking in basic common sense. They were hiring people illegally and started offering children's classes in the hopes of making easy money, despite not having the skills or resources to accommodate them. If you are in Chongqing, don't even bother going to the new one. You'll receive no assistance in getting a VISA or setting up a bank account. Place is run by clueless fools.
