    I have been working at Englishunt part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Provides so much flexibility in your day time schedule due to working at night.

    Cons

    No pay increase that I have experienced over the 3 seasons with them.

    Advice to Management

    I did not feel like training was very professional as it was saved til very close to start date and it was not super clear. A bit more formal and further in advance would be helpful!

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Englishunt full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible to your teaching style, professional development needs, and hours.
    Very helpful and positive counterparts.
    Always eligible for raises or alternative projects for extra pay.
    Excellent employment choice in so many ways. I have a disability that required long-term rehabilitation. Sometimes I couldn't even walk. I wanted to continue working and love teaching adults English. Englishhunt provided me with an amazing opportunity to teach from home full-time, stay in the work force, develop professionally, gain exposure to a new culture from clientele, and complete my rehabilitation.
    An incredible opportunity.

    Cons

    Emergencies such as power outage or technical difficulties were often delayed due to slow response.
    Requested days off were not handled until the day before, even if you requested within the required notice period. Sometimes there was confusion about time off and/or I was asked to work hours on my requested days off because there was no replacement: "everyone was busy."
    The platforms used had frequent issues. Find a different platform or just use Skype.

    Advice to Management

    Be more patient with workers. With the messenger service used for communication, messages often came across as condescending or snooty.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Steady work when they have school contracts. Decent pay. When they have contracts with school districts etc, the work can be interesting. Classes cover all ages, business professionals, military personnel and master teachers.

    Cons

    Very long breaks between school contracts. Work dries up during Korean school breaks. US managers play favorites and some are very unprofessional, even crude , in how they interact with teachers. No advancement and no promises of work no matter what you do or how good a teacher you are.

    Advice to Management

    Train your supervisors to be respectful and show loyalty to returning teachers.

    Pros

    Supportive, encouraging supervisors, great training available. Job duties are simple and not a lot of follow-up work or lesson planning.

    Sometimes the hours do not work for people, but for me they are great!

    I have been working at Englishunt part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Here you work from the comfort of your own home.
    Keep your teaching skills current.
    I am able to adapt their lesson plans to teach them my own way without anyone demanding me to be scripted.
    There are multiple programs, so more hours can be had.
    Excellent work/life balance.
    Both US and Korean management teams are very supportive but not overbearing.

    Cons

    Very late/early start.
    Limited career advancement opportunities.
    Getting paid once a month does call for a more stringent budget, but getting the pay directly deposited is great.
