    Former Employee - Native English Teacher  in  Seoul (South Korea)
    Former Employee - Native English Teacher in Seoul (South Korea)

    I worked at SMOE full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great vacation time, benefits and housing. Teaching hours max at 22hrs a week. 40 minute classes and a coteacher always present in class to help teach. Students are generally good, but they are massively overburdened with after school and private academy lessons, so they frequently are tired or don't want to engage.

    Cons

    Inflexible at times with new ideas or teaching strategies. Heavy drinking at company functions, even on weeknights. Administration does not know what Korean teachers speak English well, and frequently push aside younger, better speaking teachers, for older teachers that do not speak very well at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be flexible! The best English speakers at the school should be English teachers!

    Interview Details

    First, you have to apply either directly to the office of education or with a recruiter that works directly with SMOE. From there, you have to submit several documents including a resume, federal criminal background check, and visa eligibility documents. Afterwards, you get a phone interview with SMOE and then are accepted pretty much right away.
