I'm an American who currently lives in Istanbul. I'll be moving to Bursa at the end of summer 2011. See my post in the Bursa section (from today, 29/5/11) for more info.

My wife have worked for this Oxford as academy. After several unpleasant telephone calls the payment came months later and far less then what was agreed. Be aware.

I'd just like to post a comment here so that teachers who are looking into teaching in Turkey will be able to learn from my experience of teaching there and specifically, working for Oxford as Academy, Bursa, Turkey.

I would strongly discourage teachers from working for Oxford as Academy, Bursa, Turkey. While this agency is not a complete scam and that they actually send their teachers to work in schools, they lie to their teachers about being able to work legally in the country in order to get the teachers there, only to put them at a disadvantaged position when problems arise.

The company would tell potential teachers that they would receive a residency permit which would allow them to work. That's a lie. Residency permits DO NOT allow foreigners to work in Turkey. You
need a separate work permit.

One reason the company lies is so they can save money while still getting teachers to go work for them. Teachers will only realize that they have been tricked if one of the following situation arises: 1.
When they read the Turkish words in their residency permit, clearly stating that the holder is not permitted to work. 2. When a Turkish friend or colleague inform them that. 3. When they go to the police for help and get told/caught by the police.

Some other problems with this agency is that they put money over their teachers' well-being and interests. They pay lower than average wage and never on time (you can get much higher wage and better benefits with many other companies). Their apartments are extremely small and they never fix your apartment when there is a problem.

Additionally, if you ever quit work with Oxford as Academy, they will threaten you for money (I have proof if you'd like me to show you and I have no reason to slander this company). They will say that they have connection with the police and they are going to catch you unless you pay them a lot of money. They will also turn you out of your apartment, cut off your phone and internet, and steal your things. And you will have no one to turn to because you are an illegal worker.

Do not work for Oxford as Academy. They are not honest people.
