    Easy Interview

    Skype call with the head teacher, they ask why I want to work there and why I would be a good pick for the school. Fortunately, they tell you instantly if they will hire you or not. I think the skype call is just to make sure you aren't an idiot.

    EFL Instructor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seoul (South Korea)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at YBM Education (Seoul (South Korea)) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Pretty standard interview process to assess your intentions as well as your English aptitude. however, since your hiring manager will probably also have poor english grammar, this is not a significant hurdle to overcome. You basically have to be able to teach as well have a general understanding of various subject areas, but from my experience in the company, not everyone is required to have extemporaneous knowledge of all of them. A lot is self taught through preparation.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work with us?   1 Answer

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at YBM Education in April 2012.

    Interview

    Responded to an ad placed on Dave's ESL Cafe, and sent in the documents needed for visa issuance. Documents were sent to the academic supervisor of the branch I had specified in my email submission, and the supervisor contacted me by email two days later to make arrangements for my telephone interview. The interview was about 45 minutes long and ranged from teaching-related questions to questions about personal habits and living abroad.

    Interview Questions

    • Because I had no teaching experience, questions related to how to encourage use of particular language structures were the most difficult   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was not negotiation phase, as the initial salary and benefits are determined by referring to a set of pay grades based on academic qualifications and teaching experience.
