Meten is a language mill. Shady reputation overall. I would pass if I were you.

I've seen the Meten here in DG.  Glass walls everywhere - teaching and working in a goldfish bowl. kkkkkkkkkk
I'm pro-cloning and we vote!               Why isn't this card colored green?

Every Meten I've seen seemed to be in a shopping mall. I've seen their employees handing out fancy brochures. So that's the kind of thing you'd be getting into. You're only there to try to retain customers........ so if you're looking for a social place and want to make friends, give it a go. Otherwise, stay away.

I actually received an offer to teach at their Chengdu campus two years ago, but I read bad things about the school and the person who interviewed me.

Here is most of the offer letter that they sent me so that you can get an idea of their employment package:
