Hi all,
I am wondering if my senses are deceiving me.

I noticed that adult positions are relatively harder to find and most involve triple shifts (For example, 6:30am, 12pm, 6pm-9:30pm).

10 years ago, there were double shifts.

Is this the new normal?

Are double shift positions still available?

Get a bunch of agents working for you. You're under no obligation to use just one, and there's no need to tell them you're working with a ton.

I'm actually leaving my adult teaching position working 2-10 PM with only adults, although I haven't given notice yet. If you're a native speaker (especially with business English experience), I can put you in touch with my hagwon in Suwon.

My shift was originally supposed to be a triple shift, incidentally; that was changed due to a 4-hour intensive class I now teach at 2. Three-month rotations of students from a company; next rotation starts the second week of May. You can get lucky with schedules (although the 36 contact hours I would hesitate to call lucky, and are part of the reason why I'm leaving).

If the pay is over 2.6 and housing is provided, might not be bad for a year stint.

For 2.1-2.2? Good luck.

Pay is 2.1, hence my imminent departure; housing provided though, or I'd have never entertained it, new or not. I was a fresh teacher though, so I both didn't know better and also didn't have a lot of bargaining power since I wanted to only teach adults. Next teacher in could probably bargain pretty hard though, since they'll need someone ASAP.

I have experience in Korea, but certainly no superman.

I am keeping an eye open. But this is all good with great comments and advice and all.

I think even Jesus would say "phuck that".

That is exploitation and the sooner folks realize this, the sooner salaries will go up.

It seems teaching elementary and middle school students is a tad more lucrative and much easier to find

Others working at kiddy institutes will provide more exacting input, but, yes, those jobs are easier to find. Pay is usually around 2.2-2.5 for a 120 hour/month sched.
