I'm still trying to figure out how you can hold down a full time job and still find time to post 30+ times a day!!!!

"Teachers, we are having some technical problems with our PA system. If you are having any difficulty hearing this announcement, please send a student to the main office to let us know."

I regard job as a reasonable one "as long as the enjoyment (other factors included) outnumbers the boredom and dis-satisfaction it should be regarded as reasonable / good job".So basically you don't really know then??? LoL! So much for it being easy to find a 'reasonable' job and yet you have no idea what a reasonable job is
I can't be bothered with figures mate. I ain't looking for a job but if ever I need a teaching job then I'll certainly do this calculation and will pass it on to you.Exact figures please for a job YOU think is 'reasonable'. Shouldn't be too hard...well
It will not give you the exact hourly rate in a year but caluclating standard deviation will provide you a figure that you can relie on. That's the reason I said do the standard deviation too.And that will give the exact hourly rate, plus perks, plus cost of potential Visa runs etc.
I only do these calculations when I need doing.Please tell me the mean for last month then....thanks!
They never moaned when I was working there. Actually, I did advice many teachers for getting new jobs if ever they feel they're being treated unfair.That's what I thought. Do you tell them to stop moaning and get a new job if they don't like it?
Contact IJWT please.Examples please??? As it sounds good, but it's not really saying anything.
Some of them can be changed and people did change. All you need is to have better understanding of organizational culture. Approach your boss at the right time and discuss. It always has and it always will help. Moaning on the board, on the other hand, is less likely to help.And how will these things be changed if we keep it all bottled in as you're saying to do? You really should think before you post.
All female teachers working with my x employer are having WPs. She ain't one of the full time teachers (and they don't hire part time at all). She might have done a couple of substitution for them (at will and must have been happy with that) and now claim to be one of the teachers there. Ask her to get a reference letter from them if she's still working there.So she has a work permit then?
I didn't say anywhere she'd left your company did i? As far as I know she still works there.
Easy to find it, now isn't it?
"Unfortunate" is the word I used for them. Now go figure.Quote:
Asians are victims of prejuidce mate. Asians who get English teaching job with reasonable salary should consider themselves lucky. So let's not talk about this unfortunate lot.
Why not they work here as well, they're teachers as well....or do they like the black you have so much disdain for....DESERVE IT AS WELL????
"Not insisting in front of elders / bosses" is what I referred to (part of their culture). Prejudice, on the other hand, is something different.Well one minute you're saying Thai culture is all nice and that and now you're saying:
LP's a part of contract.With our without doing a lesson plan?
It seems the wages have gone up a tad then, good on you!
They're still working there which means they're happy with the whole package. NO?But you don't even know what they're earning??? And like I said it's not good to moan at the boss...so they were probably pretty miserable but put on a good face for you (and then came here and moaned).
I regard a job as reasonable one "as long as the enjoyment (other factors included) outnumbers the boredom and dis-satisfaction it should be regarded as reasonable / good job".WHAT IS A REASONABLE JOB????
Reasonable job please (hours, pay, wp assistance etc.)?
Thanks mate should be easy for you!

It differs from person to person! For me a reasonable job, management job not teaching English, is the one that promises atleast 45K / month + 6,000 / month travelling allowance, 160 hours / month (lunch hour included), WP, medical insurance and professional working environment.
160 hours a month!!!! 40 hours of TEACHING A WEEK!!!???? That's a reasonable job?
Also please cover WP, perks, holiday pay etc. Thanks!
Macha you fool we're talking about teaching work, not managements positions for Christ's sake.
Stop playing the fool and answer the everso simple question....there's a good lad!

I'll move it to the recycle bin.
The antics of you two guys is one of the main talking points in the moderators room. Unfortunately the two of you seem to ignore the advice of the moderating team and think you are somehow 'above the law' where this discussion forum is concerned.
The worst job in Thailand must be the man who has to sit down with a blue marker pen and mark a number two on the two-baht coins to stop people thinking they are one-baht coins.
I've locked it and moved it back as there was some reasonable discussion at the start of the thread which it wuld be a shame to lose to the bin.
I get what you mean about Zebra crossing threads though Phil...Jesus!
