I'm glad you had a good experience Jordan. It was never my wish that anyone have a bad one.
But within 15 minutes of reading your post I've found three different people, other then myself, that say the same thing I do. Mr. Kim is a crook, he doesn't pay taxes to employees and he lies through his teeth. I'm sure there are many more posts on many different websites that will also support my story, but I don't want to waste anymore time on this. I've moved on and am working at a much better school, much higher wages and I'm actually treated with respect. My only wish is to warn people. If you want to take a chance, be lied to, disrespected and abused then by all means work at CIS. However, there are many more schools out there, places where you can maintain your self respect and integrity as a teacher.
I worked at CIS for over 2 years and with several different age groups, and I did love it, that is why I re-signed twice. That is to say I loved it until Mr. Kim forced the old principal out and took over at the Uijongbu location. I only 'worked' with Mr. Kim a few weeks. I was offered a new contract, more money AND the position of Head Foreign Teacher, but my conscience kept me from agreeing to his terms. I saw him lie to parents and staff, had him scream at me, saw the way he treated the Korean staff (I have heard that all of whom have quit) and was horrified after working a full month and not receiving my paycheck. Here are the posts, you can check them for yourselves.

Again, I'm glad everything worked out for you Jordan, it's just unfortunate that you feel the need to twist the truth, or were persuaded to.
Just one more thing... Before leaving Korea I checked at the Korean Tax Office and they told me that ALL tax returns were always sent back to the owner, Mr. Kim, and that it was up to him to distribute the money. I was the first teacher to ask for my tax money back, 3 years ago. The old principal told me that Mr. Kim never returned the money....ever. Thankfully she understood that that was breaking the law, and as I was told, I was the first teacher to ever get a 'portion' of her taxes back that first year I worked. So if you did get taxes back then you can thank me for bringing it to the Tax Office's attention. In return for wanting the law to be upheld Mr. Kim fired me, withheld wages, severance, security deposit, etc. and left me penniless and homeless in Korea. Thankfully the students and parents rallied around me and I was able to stay and fight my futile battle in the Korean courts.
