The benefits seem okay, they appear to have more holidays (although I’m guessing you can’t really choose when you take them), but the pay is a little less than the Hagwons. I’m a little concerned about going private because a. I’m mixed race (and Japanese to boot…) and I’m worried I’ll be judged on my photo and b. I’ve heard so many bad experiences. But then I’ve looked up EPIK and circa 2002-2003 there were a lot of complaints about the system, and I wonder how/if it’s improved? I’ll be applying for both private and public in the meantime, but would like to make a more informed decision.
Thanks in advance, I’m happy to hear your views!
