Am sure if you read this or other discussions on JKS on this site you will find the same expression and mostly negative. The school has a very high turnover of staff, with some leaving during the year at various points. Some even doing runners without notifying. You will always come second after the students in every circumstances. Management either have no sense of reality or keep a blind eye to it and collect their big fat wage cheques at end of the month. Teachers are always wrong and management offer no solutions or strategies for problems which is clear sign of weak management. There is too much and for the salary they are offering there are better places.

I have interview soon.

Did you accept the job?

Hi,
Anyone here who is currently working with JKS?
I wanted to know whether they have a daycare at school.
Also, how is the working environment now?
Working hours?
Average salary in saudi riyals
Looking forward to your replies

Hi
I wanted to know whether they have any day care within the premises.

Did you discover if they have a day-care or no???;

Hi i have an interview with them too, did you accept?

Read the reviews on IRS. If then you still want to go then you are a strong person. I had an interview and noticed the behaviour issues immediately when talking to the head of school.

Hi

Hi Did not go there in the end.

Hey! Just left that school last year it was the worst job I’ve had. The staff are rude. Never willing to help you they are constantly throwing you under the bus. Constantly sending emails in which they say is a paper trail to cover themselves from being called into the “ heads” office . You get called in for everything.The head of the middle school(girls)  is so condescending  and rude. She sends you the most unprofessional emails. There is zero support from management. Also the kids are very spoiled . You are constantly being tested by them . The parents and children run the school.They get the marks they  want and if they arent happy with how you manage your class  (being strict) they have their parents send an email. If they complain against a teacher you would be investigated for “ bad classroom management “. It’s like entering a war .As a teacher you are constantly living in fear that you would get fired.They over work you. They even have you make a textbook from scatch and create a curriculum basically for a semester. Their expectations are unreasonable.  Besides that they have sucha horrible turn over rate.People leave in the middle of the year because the work environment is horrible.  The women's section is bad. You cant trust anyone the vertrans are so rude and unsupportive .They go straight to the head and report you for anything you say . It is so crazy to me how accurate the comments are that date back from 2011 in this forum. I definately made a mistake taking a contract with them in the past and I am so happy I left!!!!!
