    If you want to teach english to youngish kids (age 10 to 14ish) in some random village in China then you can pretty much walk into a job as long as you are white. If your demands are more advanced than this (you want to teach a particular age group, or you don't want to end up in the absolute middle of nowhere and with no other westerners for company) then maybe you need to do more research than just googling for tefl in china. The company surely really will find you a job, it's not exactly difficult for them given the massive demand for english assistants in China. Whether it is a "good" position depends on what you make of it.

    I did a bit of TEFL in China with a random company and ended up being seriously in the middle of nowhere, and having to mostly teach primary school kids, the first point sucking a bit and the second point sucking a lot (I really dislike small children). But some people love just being thrown into some random village and singing songs in English to small children. The most competitive programs for short-term TEFL in China are those organised by big non-profit organisations like the British Council, and involve several weeks proper training followed by teaching at prestigious private secondary schools and universities, but these require you to apply a long time in advance, and last 6 months or longer.

    The above post isn't as definitive or detailed as it might be, but I'm lazy.
