Re: Any other GEPIKers not paid?
« Reply #20 on: March 21, 2013, 02:09:03 pm »
I was supposed to get the 300,000 won settlement allowance when I first got here. But due to the "budget not being received from the POE" I still have not gotten it yet. Even though most everyone else in my city has.

I am supposed to be paid Monday (the 25th) and I have a really bad feeling about it... here's hoping!

I am an EPIK teacher too, but I have no idea what GEPIK is. What does the G stand for?

Don't worry you should get the settlement allowance! All my friends that I came with where handed 300,000won cash the first day  the arrived at school. Not me!!!! Was alittle taken by this but in the end it was in my first pay.  They told me that it was normal for them to give it out in the first paycheck.  Although my school has two NET's! He came to this school a year before me and was handed 300,000 cash when he arrived.  Same school, one year later different experience!  Don't worry Epik pays!!!!!

All the teachers at my school get paid on the same day as me, which is the 17th. If that falls on the weekend or some holiday, you get paid the business day beforehand, which would most likely be Friday. I'm on a standard GEPIK contract from Spring 2012.

I guess you should ask your CT for help on your problem, however you might be stirring up the pot, despite you having a legitimate concern. These people don't seem to understand that an answer like "Oh it will be soon" is BS, and that people don't run their lives on vagueness like that. Or your CT might be helpful. Either way you need to ask. It might cause issues despite you being polite but they'll know next time.

My pay was late twice in 2010 during budget cuts. Otherwise, its been on time. At my current school pay is the 17th for all teachers. The past two pay periods the 17th has been on Sunday. I received salary on the 15th with all other teachers.  it sucks that so many are having this issue. No school simply forgets to pay a teacher.

My pay was a day late a long long time ago.  I casually mentioned it to the principal when he came to ask me how I was doing.  He apologized and called up the admin head and ripped him a new a-hole.  Since then, my pay was never late. :P
HEY CAN YOU FILL THE OIL AND CHECK THE GAS PLEASE!!!!

They always pay, but they tend to be a bit useless at it. It's worthwhile to keep track of overtime, housing allowance etc.

Happened to me almost every month.
