Oh dear, my husband and I just each gave over $200 to WES before we found these reviews, I usually go over company internet reviews with a fine tooth comb, but I did not think to do it for this company and I googled them to find their address, and I am seeing bad stuff about them all over the internet. Thing is, we are from the US seeking to immigrate to Canada within the next two years, and we need the credential reviews for Canadian schools and employment, as well as immigration, so we are dealing with the Toronto office, and all of the bad reviews that I have found are about the US branch in NYC. I hope the Canadian office is better, does anyone know? Has anyone had a bad experience with the Canadian office? I will post an update on how our situation turns out with them. Keeping my fingers crossed. I am glad that we started this process very early.

They are crooks, no doubt about it. Look at other reviews. Only poisitive review is written by WES themselves. If you don't believe go look at all the complaints on the internet and they say same thing. I have not met one person in my university who says they are happy with wes. We have to use them because our university make us use them. They cheat us, don't answer phone calls, talk very badly to peoples, because they know we cannot go anywhere else. I think maybe they pay people bribe in our univesity that is why our university not wanting to change them.

Very bad experiece! Had my transcript evaluated on June and up to now they haven't sent my completed evaluation to the school! Called them how many times. Every customer service rep that I spoke to said they will forward the copy to the school. Can't imagine how they said that without really sending it to the school! Was it too much too ask? Very very incompetent customer service!

I have an issue with WES where they evaluated my transcripts but failed to do so properly. On their website they promise to do a completed and to the best of their ability if you choose their services over the other agencies. But after I paid them they ignored me and refuse to talk or email. My issue is on the US equivalency section. They gave me an equivalency of " 4 years of professional STUDIES in medicine", where as they gave my freinds who attended the same school and had a lower GPA than me " first professional DEGREE in medicine". I ask why the difference and how did they arrive at mine. They refuse to explain to me how they arrived at the equivalency for me and don't want to talk. They have an oligation under the non-profit status to abide by all laws and regulations in being forthcoming, fair and honest. they failed that test and they continue to operate with no oversight. Who oversees them? only the NY attorney generals office of charities. Please forward your complaints to them. http://www.charitiesnys.com/pdfs/char030.pdf . As a result of their actions I lost my job because my employer tells me that professional studies does not necessarily mean you have obtained the degree yet. It must read Professional DEGREE in medicine. Thanks

I had a very bad experience because I am not asking for much. I am not asking they lie or do anything illegal. All I was asking is for them to explain to me how they reached that conclusion and why?

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

speak to an evaluator by phone and explain briefly what is the issue you are having. Having to correspond by email is difficult especially if you are trying to explain something very important and no typed words can substitute for a live person.

Just look at the complaints with the New York Better Business Bureau website and you can see how they are scamming people. How come they are a non-profit? Another scam to rip off American tax payers.

Several of the students that our volunteer group helps have had the same complaints against them. They are stuck with them because several universities recommend them.

WES has clear instructions on what academic documents to submit and how to submit them. More than 50,000 individuals each year successfully obtain their credential evaluations from WES, and to date WES has prepared evaluations for close to 750,000 foreign educated persons. Still, there are also people who cannot, or will not, submit authentic credentials and there is not much that WES can do to help them. They can seek to have their application fees refunded, but without confirmed authentic credentials, WES does not prepare an evaluation report.

I agree. I had the same experience. Talking to other at my school I found out that I wasn't the only one. Their report was incomplete, had plenty of typos that they refused to correct. Left out 2 subject, etc.

This organization is running a scam. Check the NY BBB file, http://www.bbb.org/new-york-city/business-reviews/educational-consultants/world-education-services-inc-in-new-york-ny-9023/ it shows that in just 36mths the NY BBB has processed 129 complaints relating to failure to provide the credentialing services paid for, difficulties contacting the company and difficulties getting refunds. WES tactic is to tell you the documents to ask your educational institution for, and if/when you find out that no such documents exist at your institution, WES blames you for failing to submit the documents you "promised" to submit. "Customer Services" are rude and/or hang up on you. The company doesnt respond to emails, or online form submissions. Even questions submitted prior to problems arising. There is basically no way to communicate with this company to resolve problems. I am $170 out of pocket, and have been told that they cannot provide the service I paid for.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

rude and unhelpful.

Ways to make it better...

they had either provided the service, or refunded my money.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

from the number of BBB complaints filed, that it appears to be running a scam.

One thing I'd also say is that...

DO NOT PAY MONEY FOR SERVICES TO THIS ORGANIZATION.
