Paid 450$ to go with Aiesec to china, in order to learn about business systems in Asia.
1: 1/4 of that was a deposit that I should get back. I haven't got that back, even though it's almost half a year since I got home
2: the full first week, I was told to teach kids English in a summer camp for children.. the rest of the 5 weeks, I still didn't learn ANYTHING about business systems in Asia, as I signed up for..
3: Before the trip, they changed the location 5-6 times. At last I was ensured, that the trip would start and end in Xiamen, China. After I booked my tickets, they told me that the program would start the original place, but end in a city 8 hours from the original place..
4: they told us that accommodation and food was covered for the full 6 weeks. After 4 weeks, we got told to check out the accommodation, and pay for new accommodation and food for the last two weeks..
5: people who had visa problems (which was caused by the organization) or had to go to the hospital got ZERO help from Aiesec..
6: even when I made a complaint about all this, nobody took responsibility for the bad experience! instead I got blamed for asking for too much (even though I only asked for what I was promised). Nobody has taken care of my case yet, after almost half a year.
Everybody from my program was truly unsatisfied with Aiesec after this trip.
I invested my whole summer and a lot of money on this. DON'T TRAVEL WITH AIESEC! I write this so you can read it, and spend your time and money somewhere else, where it's better off spend.

the new design is bad. it keep glitching and crashing when a person send a application. change it, so its simple and easy instead.

My daughter was payed up to the tune of about 450Euros to go to Romania, and looking forward to voluntary work and meeting young people from around the world. AIESEC in Romania changed the original contract and my daughter had to pull out as there was no certainty about accomodation and facilities available during those stay. Furthermore, the Turkish students only paid about 100Euros, AND they can literally drive to Romania. I decided to contact AIESEC but got no answer and therefore cancelled the visit. I will lose about 450Euros but at least she is safe as I have heard that those involved in the visit are having major problems.
