DGEV, as it's known to its teachers, is an excellent first teaching job, or first Korean teaching job. Kids come for a week and then leave; in the unlikely event you get stuck with a bad or surly student, you'll only have him for a class or two and then--pfft--gone forever! Even if you spend your money unwisely, you will at least get fed every day. The campus is beautiful--it has a freakin' AIRPLANE on it!--but it really isn't set up to keep teachers there for more than about two years apiece. Resign yourself to the quick turnover and you might enjoy the experience!
The facilities are beautiful and well-maintained. Most of the students are from the very best schools in Daegu and the surrounding area, and they really want to be there. (There is/was also a program, High Five!, for the benefit of working class/at-risk kids, which I loved for its subversion of Korea's general class determinism). Teachers generally have a lot of latitude to teach what they want in the "situational" classrooms. If you teach "restaurant," you can teach the kids food terminology. There's also a bank, a police station, a cooking class, an art studio, and a library, and about a dozen others. There's even a fancy "energy" building down the road! The campus simulates a small American school/town. Paychecks are never late, which a lot of hakwons can't claim. I had good experience with medical care.
It's not actually in Daegu, or even in walking distance; it's in Jichun-meon. Unless you own a car, you are at the mercy of a bus that makes two trips a day between the campus and the city, 3 or 4 on weekends. Daegu has a vibrant night life; Jichun-meon does not. The nearest place to buy beer is a 45-minute hike each way. If an off-campus apartment is available, GET IT. The western teacher who acts as liaison to the administration, the Lead Coordinator? I think four people held the post when I worked there. Two of them were excellent advocates for teachers' concerns, and two were not. Some of the classes--Cooking is notorious for this, but there are others--the admin (a.k.a. "The Korean office") does not make spending money for supplies a priority, so you may find yourself buying supplies and maybe, maybe not getting reimbursed.
Advice to Management
There was, at one point, a prohibition against teachers dating Village Guides (Korean and international students from Yeungjin College who work part time at DGEV for school credit and darn little else). If this is still in force, I would recommend dropping it. Westerners, especially Americans, have no respect for bosses who feel entitled to poke their noses into other adults' personal lives.
