Hello, I would like to share with you my bad experience with a company which is called Spain-Internship. Unfortunately I haven't found it on the website, that is why I'm posting the description here.

I was supposed to do a 4-month internship in marketing in Barcelona. I paid an agency called Spain-Internship nearly 400eu. and they were supposed to organize the internship. Unfortunately, after coming to Barcelona it turned out that for a whole month I had to translate the descriptions of pet food instead of doing real marketing tasks. I also discovered that I get paid less than the other interns just because I used the service of this agency. What is more, after a month the company sent me an e-mail that they cancel my internship - without any notice period and official explanation. As there were no legal basis to end the contract, my University had to react, contact the company and put it on a "black list" and I am now trying to get the money for the service back. The company turned out to be untrustworthy and unprofessional. Please, be aware of that while choosing an internship programme as these things just happen.
