Current Employee - Native English Teacher

I have been working at English Program in Korea full-time

Pros

Takes very good care of you. Pays for room and board. You only work a 9-5; 5 days a week. Excellent vacation time. At the end of your contract you'll receive severance and pension.

Cons

Co-teachers at each school will vary. What is taught at orientation isn't always how Korean co-teachers will utilize you in the school.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have co-teacher and native teacher seminars in which they learn how to teach together.

    I have been working at English Program in Korea full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is good and the work is steady. Plus the experience can't be matched. The food in Korea is amazing and the group of foreigners you'll find are great.

    Cons

    The actual working environment leaves a lot to be desired. The children are on a steep downhill slope. If you are in a private school, congratulations, if you're public though. Good luck. Most of the teachers I've worked with are sick of their job and the students run all over them and the school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the way students are managed. This is Korea's problem and foreign teachers are being caught up in a system with no checks or balances.

    Pros

    Great , everything was just as it is supposed to be.

    Cons

    You may get a school that's not ideal, but that isn't EPIKs fault, and they will work with you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing
