Recruiter In Korea

The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

Surefire ways to get fired from your teaching gig

with 8 comments

I’ve been recruiting for more than 4 years now and while I’ve met my share of great instructors (some of whom are still here), there were definitely more than a few goofballs that I had the misfortune of recruiting. Now we all know that there are many legitimate ways to get canned like coming in late, etc, but here are a few gems that I’ve encountered.

  • ordering a large pizza during class and then eating said pizza by himself in front of students, all the while NOT TEACHING (FIRED)
  • leaving the classroom with computer on; students then look at the computer only to find HARDCORE PORN (FIRED)
  • sending a 1/4 oz of marijuana from instructor’s HOME address in Canada to his HIS school-provided apartment in Korea (FIRED, FINED, and DEPORTED)
  • bodyslamming a misbehaving student to the ground and then arm-locking said student on the ground resulting in a broken arm.  This was caught on tape. (FIRED, ASSAULT CHARGE PENDING)
  • Stripping down naked in class for no apparent reason.  This was an adult class (luckily…I think).  (FIRED)

That’s all I could think of for now.  I’ll try to add more later.

  3. I think that is the same as the first guy above, with the initials DDT. He sometimes writes for the Korean crimes I mean times.

  4. Writing about your use of bar girls in Thailand and publishing it in the Ajarn. Of course, you use your real name.

  5. Then you know who I am talking about. How about this, things that should get you fired, but not, because you’re Korean. Such as, actually losing a kid. No, I am not talking about not going to the hakwon anymore, I mean you don’t remember or know where he is. And Iam not talking about a couple of hours either.

  6. Oh, I totally forgot about this one. Stirring your drink at a company staff party with your penis.

  7. […] be major issues or small.  However, through my experience, I’ve met/spoken to a lot of you cuckoos too.   Sometimes these guys just want to stir the pot and create havoc for something that never […]
