In February, Qualfon was offering a 20K signing bonus. Be careful. Late last year I know someone who was referred to Qualfon by an existing employee of Qualfon. The existing employee got a referral bonus but the new candidate did not get the signing bonus because they were referred by the employee. Here is a link to a post last year. Note that they explicitly state "all walk in applicants". This is the clause that precludes the referred candidate from getting a signing bonus. In my opinion this was poor business practice. I see that they emphasize "ALL" in the February post above, Maybe they learned their lesson. Do not sign a long term rental contract before getting the job. Your wife will be commuting to work in the middle of the night so you want to live close to where she is employed. I know of a someone who rented a two bedroom place for 8K per month. I found that the best way to find an apartment was to walk around and ask locals in the neighborhoods where you want to rent. I wish you the best!
