I found this listing and tried to do some research on the school before I apply. I couldn't find much, but what I did find was very negative. It was also from 2002-2003. And I'm not sure it was this exact school.


I want to know if anyone has any recent experience with this school, and whether or not it is a chain or what. I would like to hear about good and bad experiences. Thanks! Feel free to PM me as well. Thanks!

Very shady. I have a good friend who worked there. Two friends actually. The owner is one shady character. He doesn't provide the national health insurance or pension benefits. Their apartment had cockroaches. Lots of them. Owner thinks he can unilaterally adjust contract to his benefit anytime he likes.

Avoid.

How recently did they work there? Could you give me a little more detail, if you don't mind Smile Or put me in contact with your friend that worked there? PM me if you'd like! Also, was it the Banghak location?

Sorry if I sound skeptical, but I've seen a few bad reviews about the last place I worked, when in reality it was not even close to bad as they made it out to seem. But everyone has their own opinion!

Thanks again!
