Avalon is a large, well stablished English hagwon chain with hundreds of foreign teachers. The good thing is you don't have to do prep for classes, because they provide everything. If you have communication issues with students, you can ask your Korean teacher for help. You're just a number here, remember that and it's a big business. Overall treated well, they pay for your studio apartment and my school provide free lunches. Can't beat that.

Paid in full on time. No issues with that. The teaching material is simple and straightforward to teach. If you get sick, you need a doctor's note. Some may have trouble getting used to the late hours. 2-10 pm.... Tend not want to do much during the day before classes starting because you want to keep your energy for classes. Kind of defeats the purpose of coming to Korea.

Constant CCT and audio monitoring in the hagwons from management. Also, have to impress parents and retain students. Heavy workload. Okay for newbie instructors because it's a cookie cutter English program you follow, but after a year, time to move on.
