In Response To: Re: Berlitz Al Ahsa Saudi Arabia (nomad soul)

I worked there. It was the worst experience. Once they stick you with an iqama you are not allowed to leave the country without their knowledge.

The owners are married and treat everyone (100%) poorly. They are EXTREMELY dishonest in the recruitment process.

Some of the lies they tell people in the recruitment process:
1) you have a 24/HR driver
2) you have insurance (but they give you the worst insurance that doesn't cover anything than taking your pulse)
3) THEY DO NOT REIMBURSE FLIGHTS...their tactic is to make you extremely uncomfortable and force you to leave so they won't have to pay you legally
4) parties, fun gatherings, day trips - nothing, not even an orientation
5) NO PAID SICK LEAVE - even with proof

Also: something things that happened to me personally or I saw happen to my colleagues:
1) paying late
2) bouncing checks
3) teachers escaped all the time
4) overcrowded buses
5) no internet, even though they promise it they later say they don't have to provide it
6) scolding everyone's way of dressing and calling you unprofessional
