This is a lot of work.  Also, I'm a little curious about how pre-schoolers or kindergarten students can do kakaotalk recordings.  Seriously?

I especially like this...

J. Wearing appropriate clothes for normal classes and special events.

So you'll be a pumpkin at Halloween and Santa at Christmas.  :laugh:

Quote
A teaching hour is the time spent in classroom instruction. Lunchtime is not considered as teaching hours

This is kind of difficult to explain easily.  Yes, you have 'normal' working hours.  But, by the looks of it, you're teaching 32 FULL teaching hours to pre-schoolers or kindergarten.  That is a lot.  By contrast, a public school teacher will contract-wise teach 22 x 40-minute classes.  Essentially, you'll be teaching almost double that.  Which will be absolutely knackering.  If I were to teach essentially six full hours a day for a year, I would be totally fooked.  When you're not teaching you have the ton of other work up above.  You would also have to be careful they don't encroach on your free hour at lunchtime with crappy nonsense.

Quote
Employee agrees to attend special activities and events, such as camps and student orientations, when it is held on weekends. The amount of required working days on weekends is three days. These are considered to be a part of Employee’s monthly salary and Employee shall not receive any extra compensation for these events.

A lot of hagwon teachers work Saturdays, but in keeping with the contract, it's a lot of work.  You will be knackered.

Quote
A monthly salary of __2.1_million Korean Won will be paid once a month on the 10th of each month.  In no event shall the employee wait longer than 31 calendar days to receive his/her monthly salary.

Low salary for work and wait for the board members to chime in with their usual misgivings.  To me, with a decent contract 2.1 million is fine as a first job, but this one is not one of those jobs.  I don't even understand the second part.  How can you wait 31 days to be paid?

Quote
Approximately 3.3% per month of the instructor's salary shall be deducted by the employer as withholding tax as provided by Korean law.

Independent contractor tax rate.   :evil:

Quote
5.4 Health Insurance
Instructor will be covered by medical benefits under the Korean Medical Insurance Union, and Korean Government Organizations or Private insurance company. The cost of this coverage will be borne half by employer and half by instructor

As there is no mention of pension, it is private insurance, which will not do.  There is also the IC tax rate, which means the school opts out of the pension scheme.  All crap and should be avoided at all costs.

Quote
5.5 HOUSING
A. Upon Employee’s request, shall provide Employee with a furnished single housing of Employer’s choosing. Employer shall pay the deposit and monthly rent, but utilities and fees incurred in using the housing will be Employee’s responsibility.
B. Should Employee chooses not to accept the housing provided by *, a monthly housing allowance of 300,000 Korean Won shall be provided in lieu of the housing offered.

Upon request?  Weird.  Also, there is no mention of what they provide.  Should be a list of essential items.

Quote
B. The half cost of airfare will pay to the employee with the first payment, the rest of airfare will pay to the employee at the end of the contract

Essentially, a don't do a runner clause. 

Quote
5.7   HOLIDAYS & VACATION
A. Employee shall be entitled to 8 days of paid vacation during the Period of the Employment set forth in Article 2. These paid vacation days are strictly designated by Employer according to Employer’s academic schedule. Annual leave days shall exclude Saturdays, Sundays, and Korean national holidays, and Employee is guaranteed three (3) days of leave in the summer and five (5) days of leave in the winter.
B. Paid Leave is a benefit given to Employee on the assumption Employee fulfills his/her Employment Contract. In the event Employee is unable to fulfill his/her full Contract, a prorated portion of the used days shall be deducted from Employee’s final salary.
C. If the designated paid vacation exceeds 10 working days, the Employee shall be required to work those extra days pursuant to Employer’s instructions. Employee shall also forfeit his/her sick days if he/she takes paid leave in access of the allotted 10 days.

Crap.  Real crap.  And contradictory.  What is it?  8 or 10?  It also doesn't mention national holidays off, meaning you could potentially work them. 

Quote
If Employee wishes to resign from Employment and terminate this Contract, he/she must give Employer two (2) months prior, written notice of resignation stating a date of and a reason for resignation.

There is no legal notice you have to give, but if you sign it, you stick to it. 

Seriously, don't bother.  Shit contract, shit benefits, shit working day, shit salary. 

Please keep looking and don't jump at the first contract offered.  There are decent jobs out there.  This is not one of them.

Do you really want to travel all the way across the planet and breathe in cancer dust for half the year to make 2.1? As far as dollars are concerned you are going to be making about 1400 bucks after taxes. For 32 teaching hours. Don't bother with the small details of the contract. So many noobies want to look at small details when it's pretty clear right out of the gate that this contract is horrible. Just look at that salary and those teaching hours and think about that for a long time. i'm really not trying to be rude but this is the type of contract where you should have instantly laughed at the recruiter that sent it to you.

Thanks guys for the replies and input, I was interested in this contract because honestly it seemed better than the more horrible ones I’ve been offered recently, but still wanted to get a second opinion on it hence why I’m here. I emailed back my recruiter and asked for a more holiday days and a higher salary, they increased it from 8 paid days to 10 and increased the salary from 2.1 to 2.2...(I don’t think they’ll budge any higher). There is still no mention of pension on the revised contract or housing furnishings to be listed as as I requested. Now having looked over the contract again the duties seem like a lot too,I’ll probably get burnt out really fast  >:(

Thanks for the feedback! I’ll be telling my recruiter it’s a no

You are kinda going about this in the wrong way. If a job is this far off the mark then you are wasting your time haggling. What you should have done instead is looked at the salary and teaching hours and gave an immediate no. You should be messaging 40 or 50 different recruiters at any given time as well. You are getting too wrapped up in things like bedding but you should be more concerned with the fact that this scummy recruiter is trying to get you to teach 32 hours of teaching for 2.1. 32 teaching hours is complete insanity by the way.

I'd pass.  Korea is more expensive to live in than what you're told.  In fact you're an idiot if you agree to 2.1 million won.  It is barely above the Korean minimum wage.  It was a good salary 12 years ago and what hogwons were paying at that time.  Many do pay more, but many try to get a niave foreigner to come over on the cheap.  If you have large student loan payments, it will either not be enough or barely enough.  You shouldn't accept less than 2.5 million or 2.6 million to start.  If you run into a brick wall, then there are other nearby countries you can earn more money.  (But, it's not just the money you earn, but that country's cost of living which allows you to save.  Would you rather save 500 dollars US a month or 1800 US dollars a month?  How much are your loan payments or other debts?  I would seriously walk away on the wage offer.)

Check the links, I posted in this feed.  Research for yourself.  Don't just take my word for it.  Follow the rabbit hole.

Especially the links to China jobs and compare the exchange rates.

because honestly it seemed better than the more horrible ones I’ve been offered recently,

If this is the best of a bunch of shit ones then you really need a different recruiter.  All you are to a recruiter is a one-off payment before they disappear.   

A lot of hagwons will have a contract they would offer to a Korean teacher looking for a hagwon job, and then translate it into English and then offer it to foreigners.  That is what this one looks like.  They tacked on a flight, but generally, it's the same.  There aren't even any sick days.  This is also highlighted by the 3.3% tax rate.  They think, knowingly or unknowingly, that they can offer you this, which they shouldn't.  A Korean can have multiple jobs and pay their own health/tax/pension etc, that is why jobs like this don't offer that kind of stuff because they're being a. stupid cheapskates and b. they just think they can get away with it.  Registering you for NHIC healthcare means they also have to pay half your pension too (both are linked).  It's too much for shit places like this, so they don't do it. 

When I was looking for jobs, I received 60 or so hagwon contracts from a fair few recruiters, and had 10 or so phone interviews and took my time with it.  In the end, I took a public school job instead and haven't looked back.   But the main thing to remember is that this is a really important decision, you don't want to fly halfway around the world to start a shit job that you could easily have foreseen some major pitfalls.  Keep looking and be positive.

The more I read this contract the angrier I become. It's possibly the worst I've ever seen on this forum. And you just know some poor schmuck is going to take the job and perpetuate the problem. No shortage of English speaking graduates willing to work for peanuts, just to escape the pressures of being an adult back home. The hagwons know this, and they milk it for all it's worth. (Come to think of it, EPIK knows it too)

2007

Back then, I disgested tons of contracts on Daves, posted a few contracts there myself, read what I got back, educated myself on Labour Law, took the advice of not jumping into something if I had any slight misgivings and went from there.  I got one contract (wish I still had it) where it said that I would be expected to wear a lab coat all the time when teaching because 'English should be administered clinically and scientifically'.

Absolutely not.  Even though I was in England at the time, it gave me a good idea of the weird diversity of hagwons in Korea.  I remember vividly there was one British teacher at one of the hagwons I was looking at who I befriended on Facebook and we did a lot of emailing backwards and forwards and her favourite song was 'The Pixies - Where is my Mind'.  I'd never heard it before, so listened to it, and thought is that what is going to happen to me in Korea?  Fun times.  Now, I'm all growed up!   :sad:

But, if I had the choice of wearing a pumpkin costume or lab coat, I'd probably, well, hmmmmm.  Can I be a pumpkin wearing a lab coat? Ah, please!
