I have just been 'recommended' a post in Changwon by someone called dido from A&T. It's mostly adults - 6.30 -8.30am and 5.30 -9.20pm.
Anyone got any info on the recruiter, Changwon, and what problems the hours could cause?

Well... You'll get home just in time to go to bed, as you will have to get up early to be back at work by 6:30am. If that's your version of a good idea...

Ok - the hours are pretty nutty. Does anybody know anything about the recruiter?

I did a contract like that in 97/98 teaching adults in Pusan and it was not that bad. I had the afternoon free to do whatever I wanted. One day per week I went home and caught up on my sleep and the other days I went to the gym or did privates in the afternoon.

Snowblind, whenever you have questions like this, try using the search function first . . .

I can say that the recruiter will squeeze money from your potential boss, which isn't a good start.

Ch'ang-won is a beautiful, cool city with a very close-knit foreigner community (lived there for 3 years; go to visit every month or 2).

I agree with Captain Underpants on this one - I don't like split shifts, either.

Basically, dido/A&T is an unknown for me, and I'm coming out pro Ch'ang-won, and anti splits.

Regards,

G.

Hmmm... sounds like a long stretch of a day.

Put it this way:

Could you do that job for ONE year?

Wake up so early, and go to bed late?

You will get less than 8 hours sleep in a day, I promise you that....
