I have an interview with Vikiki. Can anyone tell me about this hagwon? Bad or good reviews? I've googled them and there isn't any current info available. I saw one thread in this forum about this particular hagwon, but there is a different director running it now. Of course, my recruiter has good things to say about them, but that's not enough.

I have a job with them starting at the end of February! They don't have an informational website in English (as far as I can tell). My recruiter told me it was a really good hagwon, and I had to go through 2 skype interviews which seemed more thorough than other hagwon interviews.

My friend's church runs Vikiki and she also rated it highly. I will let you know more when I actually start teaching there if you're still interested!

Hi Kwalker.. thanks for the reply. I interviewed with them twice, too, and it was given to someone else.
Hmmm. I wonder whoooo? LOL!!! No worries. I did have fun and thoroughly enjoyed talking with the ladies who interviewed me.

Still.. let me know what your experience is like while working there! Maybe I could apply there in the future, who knows?

No? Oh you horrible Christian! God is so upset with you!"
