If the Teacher has his/her own housing, the school will provide the 500,000 Won monthly housing allowance. But it will be included to his/her salary. Utility fee including the maintenance fee, water, gas, electricity and etc. will be deducted from his/her salary every month. The Teacher must pay repair charges due to damages caused by his/her carelessness and all outstanding balances of his/her bills before his/her contract termination.

If Korean National holidays are included within the vacation time, they will be counted as paid leave days. The specific period of vacation days are pre-set by the School. (It depends on school schedule but usually, summer vacation is between last week of July and the first week of August, winter vacation is between the last week of December and the first week of January) When the school’s scheduled vacation time is less than 10 days, as initially contracted, the school will compensate for each vacation day untaken. i.e. When the contract says you get 10 days of vacation, but the school schedule affords only 8 days, then you will get compensated for 2 days of vacation untaken. The compensation will be made at the end of the contract period with 50,000 won per a day.

Sick Leave

The Teacher shall receive TWO sick days. The Teacher shall submit the doctor’s note within the day after his/her absence.

Is this legal? I'm guessing this is perhaps a warning sign?

Both of these jobs are a big step downwards from EPIK.....

Job#1 Long hours basically 9 hours a day for 2.3 a salary from 10 years ago....

Attending weekly Teachers’ Meetings and annual Parents-Teacher Meetings. Attending the School’s events, such as the annual performances and seminars twice a year.

What? They won't be paying your for this you know...... 2.3.... really?

Teaching hours (30 hours /week) that exceed the contracted hours are remunerated at 12,000 won per 45 minutes. What?

The Part timer at GS25 makes this for over time I'd tell them to shove that where the sun don't shine.

The Teacher shall be paid 30,000 won per day during the orientation period (9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.). WHAT?

The Part timer at GS25 got more for his/her orientation......

Utility fee including the maintenance fee, water, gas, electricity and etc. will be deducted from his/her salary every month. (No thanks)

The School shall provide a one -way ticket to Korea. ( Worse than 10 years ago)

When the school’s scheduled vacation time is less than 10 days, as initially contracted, the school will compensate for each vacation day untaken. i.e. When the contract says you get 10 days of vacation, but the school schedule affords only 8 days, then you will get compensated for 2 days of vacation untaken. The compensation will be made at the end of the contract period with 50,000 won per a day. (HAHAHA I wan't what they're smoking)

It's cheaper to give you 0 vacation days than to give you time off because you will be working for 50 lousy dollars a day during that time. I mean seriously? 50/9 hours a day=5.55 dollars an hours that's like minimum wage from ten years ago...... At that point I would probably have blocked the recruiter that sent me this job offer and sent them a nasty message...... but lets keep going.

The Teacher shall receive TWO sick days. (Maybe the owner watched Charles Dickens Christmas Carol?) Yay I guess.....

The Teacher has the option to opt out of CLAUSE 10. Please sign below to opt out of CLAUSE 10. In case of opting out of CLAUSE 10, the School will deduct 3.3% of income tax from the salary each month.  ( This is shady AF) The health insurance is probably not national health insurance I dunno good luck with this job seriously.........

The residential tax rate is 10% of the income tax to the government of Korea.(Bull Corn)

Job #2.

This contract is on fixed term of contract from 17 February, 2020 to 23 June,2021.
Wait..... What? this isn't a 12 month contract?

While this contract is in effect, THE SCHOOL agrees to
2,200,000 won monthly. (Maybe you can beg on the street corner to supplement this poverty wage.....) 2.2's kinda low dude.

THE SCHOOL may require teachers to attend in-service training during vacation time, to a maximum of 10 days, as its expense. Contracts for holders of responsibility posts may specify more attendance days. (Does that mean you have to spend your vacation days in training?)

Normal working hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 17:00. The employee is expected to teach six or seven classes a day during a 5 day work. The length of the classes may vary according to the schedule, but there is never expected to be longer than six hours per day of instructional classes. In addition, the employee is expected to supervise an extracurricular activity for students up to 3 days directly following the last class. The employee is also expected to follow daily, weekly, and monthly duties such as recess, shuttle bus, and after class dismissal. The employee acts as substitutes for sick colleagues additionally for short-term absences. Teachers are expected to show appropriately professional flexibility in this matter.

Yikes! 9 hours a day for 2.2? You gotta supervise students during recess, ride the bus with them etc and teach 7 hours a day for 2.2?! You earn a measly 12,000 won an hour if you calculate it out lord almighty that's cheap!

I'm too tired to read more.

You've already left Korea you said, why on earth would you want to go back for minumum wage, 1700 euros?  Surely there are much better opportunities for you back home? If you don't mind teaching elementary school level then you could probably start tomorrow.

So it starts at 2.5 and ends at 2.7? That's odd.

It's also strange that a recruiting company - the main JLP recruiter in fact - would advertise a salary lower than it actually is.

The OP has 3 years teaching experience so they would start at level 2, I believe.

**Edit- you have to be at 2.5 for two years to get to the level 1 pay of 2.7, so you cannot start at that salary.
