Institute Review
Find another Hagwon to work at. The pay here is not great, you are denied a break each day even though your contract says you have them. You are not paid overtime for staying and working and you are not allowed to leave the building. When told this was all illegal the school said to find another job. Unless you've worked in a Kindergarten before and you know you're ok with it, don't. The kids are so young, the school wants you to wipe the kids' bottoms when they go to the toilet if their parents ask. There is a "4 years" class, which is full of 2-3 year olds in "international" (i.e. actual) age. There is so much micromanagement ("stand up at lunch while you supervise the kids", "use this pen to mark"). More classes were added last semester so the school stopped counting time supervising the kids as working hours to justify it. So even though you're looking after kids or teaching ~35hrs/wk, only 30 of that is counted as "active teaching hours". As a result there's only about 6 hours a week to plan for all of those classes and write all the tests and lesson plans and other administrative work you're given each week for each class. Save yourself a headache and just get a better paying, easier gig in Seoul proper that actually let's you leave the building. The housing is the only perk.

Institute Review
There has been a systematic use of late payments to teachers, pension, and health insurance. If the teacher leaves the country at the end of the contract, the company has tried to not pay at least two former employee's bonus, and pension. Even those who finish contracts and remain in Korea are paid only after constant and tiring reminders and nearly to the point of threatening legal action.

My contract has ended fulfilled by my end. The date of payment is now past. And all legally due has yet to be paid.

The owner of the hakwon also owns swim schools. His priority is the swim schools and the disorganization and lack of management shows this. There is a lack of organized curriculum, accounting, and of communication. Principals come and go quickly because of the issues within the organization.

I would never recommend Worwick Franklin. New teachers who have little understanding of these "blacklist" schools may be recruited because of the lack of diligence of recruiting agencies.
