Valoración de un empleado de Astex Servicios Lingüísticos, S.L
Si trabajas con esta gente consulta tus nominas y contrato con un abogado antes de continuar y no creas NADA lo que te cuentan. Contratos ilegales y reducciones de sueldo ilegales para que los dueños se llenen los bolsillos de dinero cada mes. Los directores de los departamentos no son nada profesionales, totalmente mediocres y no ofrecen ningun tipo de apoyo y lo unico que les importa es su comisión y bono mensual aparte de su nomina. El ambiente laboral parece un colegio secundario.... Su prioridad es utilizar a profesores sin ofrecerles apoyo para nada. Cada vez les exigen a los profesores más "tareas administrativas" con la misma tarifa. Basicamente prostituyen a los profesores y luego van de prestigiosa empresa.
I've been teaching English privately, in academies and companies for more than 20 years in Spain and the US. Moved to Madrid and was offered a job right away in Astex because of my CV, and I took it even though the pay was not competitive (and not enough to live off of in Madrid). If my experience is too long-winded, please skip to the end of this review which sums it up in one sentence.I would go to companies and teach executives with material I had to provide. Astex said I could photocopy anything from their library, so the students were not given any books or material. I was used to this from other low-rate academies, so no surprise there.The real surprise came when one by one my classes "ended" during the middle of the course. I would call Astex and they actively avoided any proper answer. They said more classes would come, but they never did, and finally I was without classes without having been notified that from their standpoint my services were no longer needed.That happens. No problem there.What WAS the problem was they never told me I was fired, and when I insisted, the time had elapsed to receive unemployment benefits. I was going to report them for questionable business practices, but stopped when I was made to realise the legal mountain I was up against.Think about that.I cannot recommend Astex at all as an employer because they are not transparent with their employees. These English brokers take advantage of English teachers and move them around like pawns. When I was working for them they made a mistake and sent me an Excel form to fill in which included - más...
They have clients.
Pay less than proper companies. Non-transparent. Can get the axe without telling you.
