The starting salary is negotiable (ie, if you are an experienced teacher, you can expect more than 2.35 mil).  Also, teacher's will, at most, have 5 classes per day.  Free dinners (M- F) are provided as well.

Thanks for your interest,
Melissa

In all fairness, this seems like a good gig for a newbie teacher.

40/45min classes, long term employee, yearly raise (hopefully higher than 100k monthly per year lol)

 I think I would phrase it as slightly less terrible than some of the other postings that are out there. Just because it is less terrible than the average still doesn't make it all that good though. This pay rate is the same as 15 years ago while the cost of living is much higher and the won is also in the toilet.

2.3 minimum for 6.5 working hours a day sounds good to me, at least on paper. The actual work conditions might be worse.

Itís not just slightly less worse than other options out there...there are gigs offering 2.1-2.3 for 10+ working hours per day. This job completely blows them out of the water given youíll be working nearly half the hours.

The korean won tanking should be taken into consideration...but should they also offer lower pay if the korean won strengthens against the dollar? It goes both ways.

For a new teacher with zero experience, or for a second year teacher, this is almost as good as it gets.l if you donít have the necessary qualifications to prove you deserve better work conditions.

I'd sign up just to meet this mystery miss Melissa. :azn:

Relatively close to Seoul as well:

The Shin Ansan Line will connect Yeouido to Ansan in 2023.[citation needed]

Yeouido - Yeoungdeungpo - Dorim Sageori - Daerim Samgeori - Guro Digital Complex - Doksan - Siheung Sageori - Suksu - Gwangmyeong - Mokgam - Sungpo - Jungang - Hosu - Hanyang Univ. (Technopark at Ansan)
It will take only 30 minutes from Yeouido to Ansan

Its really not bad if you don't mind working nights and want to remain in Korea.  Just 10 days vacation is terrible though - but for whatever reason standard. I have a job with 16 week of vacation a year...and no dealing with little kids ever - and there are many other places with decent perks like that too in the ESL field. These hagwon jobs really need to up their perks, if the pay is going to remain stagnant. It's surprising that they get anyone at all.

But, again - this one isn't as bad as the others.

Btw - the poster has said both 30 hours max and 25 hours max in separate messages. That needs some clarification.

  Well, I am an experienced teacher, so if I apply I might get slightly more than the salary mentioned here.
