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

    I worked at SMOE full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Stable job if you are responsible, teaching kids the basics of the English language. Best of all, you get to live in Seoul Korea. Also, the teaching hours are not demanding.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are conflicts in expectations. For example, Korean work culture really values eating together for certain dinners and almost always for lunches. Those who like to eat alone or who don't like last minute dinner obligations may have some trouble.

    Native English Teacher Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at SMOE.

    Interview Details

    Scheduled a phone interview, which lasted about 20 minutes. About a week later, I got an email from my recruiter saying that I had passed, although I wouldn't know my exact placement until later. I think I benefited from getting all of my documents in right away and being interviewed early on. My interviewer was very friendly and seemed receptive when I mentioned that I had studied Korean a little bit. Some other teachers I met in Korea seemed to have a more difficult interview.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked about having a flexible schedule. If the boss asked you to stay late to attend a staff dinner or get-together, what would you do?   Answer Question
