AIESEC International - The admission process in aiesec sfax/ tunisia

So after doing the workshop to learn more about aiesec, and passing the interviews. the Aiesec president tell us that there is some 3 days trip to another city, and each one of us have to pay 100dt to go, mind you these 3 days are in middle of studies, and he keeps repeating it's not mandatory but it's a huge bonus so that they take you in, if you go to this trip and pay them this 100dt.

of course later on, they tell us via mail we didn't make the cut and I quote "we are simply not looking for the best people but we’re seeking the right people", when it's clear the only reason they didn't let us join is beacuse we didn't pay that money, skip our school and go to that trip.

now what I know is Aiesec is a non profit organisation, so having people inside it who abuse the ones who wants to join like this is really messed up and make aiesec look really bad.

Desired outcome: reevaluate if the president of Aiesec sfax is really worthy of that responsability.

AIESEC International - Volunteering process/lack of information given/ contract

I've been forced to volunteer to aiesec tunis because one of the leaders lied that there is no other options and its the easiest visa. They kept pressuring me to pay contract within 48 hours unless i won't travel. They didn't do any background check about tunis, lied about many things as tunisia especially sousse where I was going had very high corona cases, lockdown and vaccine was mandatory unless we will be isolated in an hotel for whole two weeks, and when i applied and made the interview at 2 (touristic visa wasn't allowed at all) another member also gave me false info about requirements of the embassy but luckily i double checked before going, they sent invitation letter really late at the end of 5 while my volunteering experience begins in the beginning of 7 and the embassy took 40 days to reply in which my visa was disproved (along with all egyptian volunteers applying at that time) because of the pandemic and the unstable situation in tunisia. Ive been promised a refund to be sent after a year next August, which is very unrealistic considering the lack of information, lying and waste of time i put up with from February till july and the expenses wasted on visa and health insurance and trying to get vaccinated in a short period unless ill be quartintined all because they dont do a background check.This was the worst experience i have ever had to go through aiesecers are very very unprofessional in dealing with travels (my experience with both aiesec tunisia and egypt) . Because i also unfortunately applied as an aiesec member too at the same time and i know exactly what they're doing. There is no standard whatsoever they only have one goal and that is to sign contracts (which makes them a tourism company not an organization), they dont care about the SDG's ive been even mocked on the phone for wanting an opportunity for gender equality!.

Desired outcome: I want my contract fees refunded soon

AIESEC International - Global volunteer opportunities

I have started applying for opportunities through Aiesec's website. Couple of days later a person contacted me saying that he is an Aiesec Istanbul member. He said he wanted to assist me but he asked me so many questions and called me many times. So I asked him not to assist me more. Another member from Aiesec Istanbul's management board contacted me saying that they will not accept me to any projects since I am not matching with their visions and missions without asking me any questions. Can you please fire both of these members?

I volunteered for aiesec turkey denizli programme. It has been more then a month and our certificates are still pending. A certificate is a proof that we took part in a programme and is a great thing to be included in the resume and one of the main reasons to take part in the programme. Every other aiesec programme has given the students their certificate...

AIESEC International - internship

To AIESEC international
I was accepted for an opportunity at AIESEC AAST in Cairo in March 2019, everything was okay uptill I arrived in Egypt. Accommodation was different than the pictures which were sent by LC to me ayesha resolved that matter so it's okay
I was supposed to do an  internship in Egypt as global entrepreneur and without a doubt a can say that it was worst experience of my life.  They don't even answer me when I was in Egypt, all of them have turned off blue ticks on whatsapp .
Job description of my opportunity was totally different than the job I was given even I agreed to work there but the company manager was [censored] he never responded to my messages even he was posting status on whatsapp then I contacted my LC VP Sara sherif(busiest person in world) she didn't responded me even its been month I'm back to my country I have proof of everything if you guys need any thing I can provide. Everytime when there was trip every member of LC texts me to join them on trip. I'm here in Pakistan without internship certificate. Even My home LC isn't copperting with me except Ayesha and if you guys have the same behavior I'm sure I'm gonna take legal action against you guys as well.
I want every penny spent by me on this... AIESEC back, I left a very good internship in Pakistan because of this [censored]tiest internship.
It's been more than a month no one is copperting with me and I am afraid what is AIESEC international doing?

I have done an internship in India and they didn't give me my certificate that I traveled for 6 months because of it . They don't even answer me both India and Egypt . When I was in India they told me that there was a problem with the website so they can not generate my certificate . More than one month passed and I went home and there is no response or respect .

AIESEC International - improper treatment of my application and unacceptable behaviour

My name is Cherifa Abdou, an Egyptian student at Cairo University and submitted my application to join AIESEC and was interviewed on Tuesday, 30th of JUly 2019 at AIESEC office for Cairo University after passing an interview over the phone on Monday, 29th of July, 2019 and I was advised that I would be receiving an email giving me the feedback of whether I am accepted or not and suddenly on Sunday, 4th of August, 2019 at 9:15 pm I received a phone call from a young lady advsing me that I was accepted and that there is a so-called last phase group discussion and that I must attend the last session of such a group discussion the following day Monday, 5th of August, 2019 and I had to appoliogize as I was outside Cairo and and that was really a too short notice to get a phone call at 9:15 pm asking to join a session on the following day and she advised me that she would put a note of that on my name .
I heared nothing from them till I decided to call them on Thursday, August the 8th, , 2019 to inquire about my situation and I called at 7 :00 pm and to my surprise I was told by the same young lady that I did not attend the last phase being the group discussion and that on that date I called there was the last group discusssion at 8:00 pm and that I must attend it, otherwise my application is not complete and I could apply again on the second semester of 2020 . Actually I am complaining about the way I was treated and the miscommunication I experienced by notifying first on a too short notice about the last phase and that I did not get the promised email of the feedback on my application and also the fact that I decided to follow up myself on the application after this phone call I got and suddenly discover that the last session for group discussion was not on the 5th of August as I was told over the phone but was still on the 8th of August, 2019 as I discovered during the phone call I did .

I am really disappointed of such a behaviour and I was really hoping to join AIESEC to add value and to gain experience, especially after what I heared from my father about it as he had experince in the 80's at AUC (the American University in Cairo) but what I experienced was toltally unacceptable in terms of planning and treating others with respect

AIESEC International - internship with aiesec surat

Hi Ashtoush,

Here we, me, Mohammed, Abdulla, Youssef and Coung, are writing the email you required. We contacted our countries' Aiesec department to rectify your negligence in solving our problems, which you were perfectly aware of regardless of the absence of formal emails like the one herein. I will be frank and cristal clear as I am used to Not having received any of such emails are not considered as a worthy excuse.
Your way of disregarding our queries and needs is being disrespectful, and your request to receive a formal email to start considering and solving them is only being both an offence towards our own intelligence and proof of your negligence/incapacity to solve the issues we incurred in within the context you put us. In fact, this is not the first time in which you are behaving as such: during our discussion, which also the President Rahil was present in, related to the absence of the minimum facilities in what you call "kitchen", you said that "according to the Wikipedia definition of "fridge" you are not obliged to provide us with one since it is "an instrument of storage" and not of cooking". This has been sufficiently insulting to make you ashamed of the label of Vicepresident you praise yourself with. If at the first glance I could have said that this role is a responsibility that you are not holding only due to the too large number of interns and volunteers you surrounded yourself of, now, after the above-mentioned discussion, I simply understand that you simply can't. You are trying to have the highest number of Incoming spending the least effort possible. Trying to being efficient you are being poorly effective. Trying to do everything you are not doing anything. You did the step longer than the leg welcoming all of us, and now who is paying for your errors it's us.
You may think what is done is done. True but now you must solve our problems as soon as possible and ask pardon for the discomfort you put us in. If this were a holiday house a bad review would prevent you from having other Incomings in the future, but since this is not I will make use other means to avoid that other unaware people would have to go through all this, that is denouncing to the Aiesec International all the failings.

The incapacity of you and your department to meet the most basic needs of having are overly passed the threshold of good common sense.
It's been almost 3 weeks that some of us are here and on a daily basis, we report to you personally, by call and messages and to our buddies and the other Aiesecers our issues repeatedly. Our complaints came to your ears and attention from multiple sources and periods of time. But postponement and passing-the-buck attitude ruled. This is not acceptable anymore.

1- You promised a decent place to live. When I first arrived I found a place in disgusting conditions and you realized how bad they were when you came here to see them. Dust everywhere, insects around, bathroom and shower room tainted and stained of black, washroom without light, kitchen devoid of the basics, no wi-fi, used sheets and pillow cover full of hair and dust (you even admitted you had a meeting sitting all together on that same sheets). On Sunday 7 we even took off the filter of the A/C and fun out that we were breathing contaminated air for how much it was dirty (it hasn't probably ever been cleaned). You said the cleaning lady came. I say, if she came, she did not clean anything! I and my flatmates spent more than 3000 rupees in cleaning stuff and spent one entire day in order to clean the house at a reasonable extent to let us live into it.

2- You promised a kitchen. The kitchen is without the basics to cook or storage food (fridge according to your Wikipedia definition). Furthermore, before my immense surprise, you could still not answer to my objection according to which "the kitchen you gave us is not even equipped of the compulsory facilities to meet its expectation of being "cooking means" since is devoid of stove, oven, gas, dishes, glasses or cutlery of any kind".
Since that conversation, I could not trust your words anymore and personally felt uselessly offended by your disregarding consideration of my intelligence.

3- You promised drinkable water in tanks - It never came

4- You promise food to be delivered twice a day - it has been delivered only the first day.
PS without kitchen where to cook healthy food, a fridge to store grocery food and without cooked food brought from the providing service I had to order only online food from restaurants and fast-foods and its costs me 300$ till now

5- You promise keys. We are 6 people home now and we still have 2 keys. This hinders our autonomy as independent individuals, as we are and you forget to conceive us. Moreover, this issue increases the chances the keys may get lost due to the often hand passes needed, which goes against your purposes to preserve their integrity.

6- You promised Wi-Fi. we are international citizens outside the home without a stable wi-fi connection and all the bad implications it leads to.

7- Misleading communication - You sent to all the other interns a link where to watch the pictures of the comparable places we would have been living in. Firstly, the pictures did not reflect the real conditions of the accommodation but rather fallacious past brighter than actual conditions. Secondly, every and each of us understood that we would have been provided with wi-fi, laundry and ironing 24/7, kitchen completely functioning, drinkable water and clean place. The fact that each of us misunderstood the real conditions of the accommodation is a piece of clear evidence that you took advantage of subtle and misleading communication.

8- i came here to learn new things and to work with a company with a good conditions, i found that the office is in a very low conditions, 4 chairs, one fan and there is no even a good bathroom, no one told me that i will work in this conditions.

9- i already made a lot of tasks that they asked me to do, but they already asking alot of other overwhelming tasks like I'm a full time jop, and i waste money and time too to make all this tasks done, and I can't afford this anymore.

10- no one in the office doing my job, so i came here as an intern, to learn some skills, so how can i learn anything from this company while there is no one doing the job I supposed to do ?!

11- i paid for a good place to live in, because i found that i have to follow many rules in my host house, I didn't came from my country which is far 4500 km away, to be treating like a child, so i paid to stay in an accommodation have the basic humans conditions, now im sleeping like a refugee on a [censored]ty mattress on the floor ?! It that AIESEC india ?!

Final words I'm really love india and live it's people, and i think because of the other interns and the people of india I'm still here and didn't go home, but really this conditions is ruining our experience so please solve it .

Thank you
