The school is in massive debt, (thanks to the owner's lifestyle and crooked dealing. They have not been paying into pension, have not been paying their employees severance pay. They also intimidate their employees, one former teacher was threaten and kept for a whole month before she was allowed to quite.

They require overtime work from their teachers, but do not pay any overtime at all.

Owner/Manager: Donald Park
Location: Bundang, by Sunae station.

I am a current native teacher at 7s English acacdemy. Somehow I stumbled across this page and thought I leave a comment and my personal opinion about the academy. I am a teacher here but I will not over exaggerate on things I say nor willl I make false claims.

First, my experience at 7s has been great. Donald Park (owner) has treated me with respect and taught me a lot of things. When I was hired, I began working with teachers who have been working here for nearly three years. They were satisfied with their job and had a good relationship with both the owner and the head teacher. To me the office atmosphere was very important on deciding whether I wanted to work here long term.

I have many years of teaching experience in Seoul and Gyeonggi province so I am fully aware of the hagwon systems. So far, I haven't noticed any issues with the system and the management. I honestly don't know how things were 7-8 years ago but now I can easily say that the academy is walking towards the right path.

I do see some negative comments but that was years ago. Not every job can be a perfect fit. There is always a risk when taking the next step. I took a risk and I have no regrets.
