Maximum # of hours @ EPIK or Hagwon
Printer-friendly version

My current EPIK school has given me 27 hours and in addition I am expected to work in the English cafe during lunch.  I have strong opinions about this, but my question is...what has been the maximum number of hours anyone has worked at an EPIK job, or for that matter at a Hagwon?...in EPIK is 30+ class hours a week feasible?  I imagine it is in a Hagwon.  Just trying to ascertain what the ceiling may be.

You're complaining about 27 hours plus a few extra hours at lunch.  Go back home and work a regular 9-5 job.  That's also if you can find a job with today's economy.  Teachers here in Korea are pampered too much...

The answer is in your contract....

You should get paid overtime for anything beyond 22 classes.  

Hogwons are different contrct to contract but usually ist 30, 35 or 40 (ouch!) hours.  

 

When I worked EPIK i was teaching upwards of 42 hours (Lots fo after school classes, multiple schools, teachers classes)  Made for a VERY sweet paycheck.

Why the heck are you even working for EPIK when you have an F visa ?

I'm just waiting for that guy to post, " ohhh I only work 12 hours a week and make 3.3 mil a month with 4 months vacation."

Public School Jobs whether they be full time jobs or afterschool post are like a box of chocolates . or like blind dating  you never know what you will get . I guess this is due to the influx of teachers and thusly more jobs and a lack of qualtiy control over those jobs and teachers . Public school jobs and Univ post due  give you a sense of being a more respected person as you tell people you work there or when tell a taxi to take you there .  Usually people see you as a higher human strain . However sometimes people are wrong  once at those posts you dont have to teach that well honestly since its not a business . At a hogfarm you hear when a parent complains or a kid stops so you most be on top of your game i mean teaching . Thusly i think hangwon teachers .> then Univ and public school teachers . I am sure those working at Univ and public school will surely disagree with me . But I think Hangwon teachers are better teachers then Univ and Public school teachers . You agree

Nope, this is drivel... it is incorrect logic to assume that because it is a business the teachers are better...

This is the person on the barstool next to you~
