Kid’s College Sanbon, South Korea
If you have been offered a job at Kid’s College in Sanbon, South Korea then I would STRONGLY advise you to LOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE!!! I can guarantee 100% that you will regret working here after a few months. There are many good schools in Korea to teach English, however THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM. The Kid’s College Chain in particular is notorious around Korea for being a miserable place for foreign teachers to work in South Korea.
The working environment at this school is absolutely horrible. There are not enough words in English or Korean to describe how horrible the management here at Kid’s College in Sanbon is. There is not one single employee (Korean or Foreign) that is happy with the management here. The principal and the vice principal will go to any length to make a profit and usurp their authority over you.
The following is a list of some of their SHADY business practices that I have experienced while working at Kid’s College in Sanbon, South Korea. (Please note, that none of the following is an exaggeration):
*Refusing to pay pension as mandated by Korean law.
*Charging foreigners a higher income tax than is required by Korean law.
*Disgusting and substandard living conditions.
*9 ½ hour workdays for 5 days per week.
*Not buying or paying you the full price of a return flight home.
*Requiring you pay for your flight to Korea & recruiter’s fee should you want to leave Korea, EVEN AFTER 6 MONTHS or 1 DAY BEFORE YOUR CONTRACT IS UP. (This plus your flight home will be almost $4,000.00 USD)
*Requiring you to give them 90 days notice should you want to quit.
*Making you work in an office that is covered in mold.
*Requiring you to work while they are fumigating the building for bugs.
