4C:
What is this list lol. have they had teachers in the past who turned up with ragged clothes and no underwear, or do they just hold a very dim view of ESL teachers? The hair/beard outlines are unnecessary too.

4D:
Immense amount of work and vague. I would give the job a pass based on this section alone. Curriculum design/development and teaching and individual care and testing and evaluations and reports? Nah

5:
Unpaid Saturday work.  9 hour work days but a vague mention of differing hours and even work location (sounds like being sent to work for another school (illegal on E2)).
Unpaid training and workshops.

6:
Low salary for the work and hours. 3.3% tax rate indicates this is an independent contractor position, this is a scam to avoid proper contributions to tax/medical insurance/pension. You will likely run into issues with this later. Also a sign the employer is going to screw you financially and professionally.

7-12 omitted, I would be interested in seeing what those said for a laugh

14.4:
You should never be held responsible for the recruiter fees, nor any of that about rent/replacement/paid holidays at the end


IMO don't take this job or you will regret it.

Men aren't allowed have long hair or a shaved head? No beards?

I'll keep my Jesus hair and beard, and if I wanna shave it to look like a Neo-Nazi I'll do that, too!

F that place! Bunch of chumps!

But seriously, F that place, like most hagwons.

What Renma said. Contract terms and conditions are only clear in that this hagwon is shady as hell, they're doing illegal shit, they're going to cut costs at YOUR expense, and they're going to throw you under the bus if that shit hits the fan.

Hard pass.

9 to 6 for 2.1 to 2.3 million won?  Plus they will fly you to a nearby international airport?  But it omits flying you there?  The appearance?  If you want a beard maybe neatly trimmed, grow one.  If you want some length to your hair grow it.  If you want to shave it off due to balding or whatever do that too.  They can get bent.  Plus a lot of other vague working condition clauses such as submitting a formal written lesson plan before each class.  For 2.1 million, not a chance.  I may tolerate their strict horse-crap for 3.5 million but not a penny less.  Plus dressing up?  I normally wear jeans and a t shirt or a polo shirt or whatever.  I have for years.  For them,?  Suck a lemon. 
Trolls on here are lame and need to get a life.

Putting this right at the top is a huge red flag. It means people run from this place all the time. I'd have honestly stopped reading there for any reason beyond laughs.

No mention of vacation, health insurance, pension, housing details, number of classes per week, length of classes. Hard pass.

Yeah, lack of manners is a pet peeve. If you ask for advice, please let those who give you some advice know that you appreciate it. Doesn't matter if you accept or reject it.

It does after I replied to it.  But on the original post it doesn't have anything.  He must have quit or been banned.
