WARNING!: Korean recruiter: Name removed

I thought I would alert everyone to the dangers associated with someone who recruited me in April of 2010 (I finished my contact in April of 2011)

This recruiter is (name removed)

I hate to use such a strong word, but it is in fact true to say this recruiter literally lied to me through her teeth regarding this position from start to finish.

I spent a year living in an apartment above a hogwan, with a terrible boss who treated all staff with zero respect (infact I was insulted at times)

Whilst I had a great time in Korea generally, my experience of my first hogwan was a simply awful one.

I just wouldn't want any other potential teacher to fall for the lies this lady puts out to the world (it seems she also uses, what I can only imagine to be, a series of 'fake' references of how wonderful a recruiter she is).

Furthermore, this recruiter had fed me such a range of lies, and must therefore be running so scared of teachers she has recruited - that when I tried to contact her about some simple flight arrangements towards the end of my contract - she literally(!) hung up on me twice - once she realised who I was.

If there is anyway everyone can spread the word regarding this terrible recruiter and school, this would be much appreciated.
