FTC Educational services / Bad employee
This agency is run by a South African man named Arthur Wood. The company are great with first impressions- putting their staff up in plush apartments for the first month, making all sorts of promises and future prospects look likely. However, after a month or so of being employed, the employees of this company soon realise the real FTC and the real Arthur Wood.
FTC educational services, is a huge company based all over Asia in Hong Kong, China, Thailand and Japan- operated illegally I may add via its main office in a back alley of Pakkret, Nonthaburi. Employing people without visas, encouraging people to work on tourist visas in order for Fat Cat Arthur to not have to pay governmental taxes.
The director of the company is Arthur's wife, whose nickname is Jib. She is the most frugal woman you will ever meet. Constantly trying to deduct wages from the teachers whether it be for electricity, attendance or any other excuse she can make up.
There is nothing professional about this agency. Their main port of business is their facebook page, Arthur rarely responds to emails and never answers the phone. Instead, he hands his phone over to his wife who pretends to act as though he isn't there at the moment. I've been present when this has happened- so I have seen it first hand.
Arthur has a lot of money, whether from a business or from South Africa/his home - I'm unsure but he uses this to create impressions and flashes it around in front of his staff so that they feel secure but as soon as he has you in his grasp via a shabby, meaningless contract- he will begin to mess with you.
If you decide to leave the agency, because you have some level of self respect, and you tell Arthur- he will not pay you your final salary. People have to sneak around and wait patiently for their salaries before they can leave, knowing full well that he will steal it from you unlawfully but say it's because you didn't give notice. However, even if you do give notice he will go out of his way to keep your money and slander your name across the board.
One friend of mine managed to get out of FTC whilst he could, but Arthur got wind of the new school he was intending to go to after securing employment. Arthur went to the school and convinced them that my friend was unworthy of employment, to which the job offer was retracted and my friend was left unemployed.
If you confront Arthur about anything, he will turn on you. He is an evil evil man with no morals and hopefully one day- he will get his comeuppance.
I cannot believe that there are no other complaints on this forum about this horrendous agency.
Do not work for them. They are useless, unprofessional and will employ you illegally.
