You would  most likely be teaching 35-40 actually classes per week (granted, the morning kids will be the same). 
You will also have to work weekends, to make up for any national national holidays that will befall the working week. 
Typical operating hours are usually 9-6, 9:30-6:30.
You can count on heavy administrative work, helicopter mom's  and all that comes with that.

Some folks have liked working there but others have not...depending on the branch.

i have many friends who work here (for some reason). pretty standard hagwon, although most of them signed for 2+ years. it's a pretty big chain so you're not gonna get screwed over (my friends never have, anyway). atmosphere probably depends on branch-to-branch though, like most places

I've heard it both ways.  It really depends on which branch. 

There's one right now that is refusing to issue letters of release even though they are unable to pay teachers due to Coronavirus...

I'm sure others aren't that bad.
