Review for EF High School Exchange Year, Cambridge, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

They are terrible organization that I do NOT recommend anyone to involve with. They treat you like a crap and have absolutely no respect. They don't care what kind of family their foreign exchange students will be staying with. All they care about is money. As long as they can get money, they don't care about students and volunteers. They also practice illegal activities regarding placing students. They have got in many troubles before, but they act like they are good organization when they are not. I advise everyone to stay away from this b***s*** worst organization ever.

They treated me with disrespect and are very rude. I will never want to work with this screwed organization ever again. They should be shut down, in my opinion (and that's how bad they are).

Review for EF High School Exchange Year, Cambridge, MA, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

This is the WORST foreign exchange student organization you can ever imagine. They treat students, volunteer coordinators (IECs) and even their own staff very unrespectful manner. They treat you like crap & humiliate you big time. They try to place 3000+ students even though they can barely place half of it on time. They schedule coordinator trainings out of blue middle of the year and if you don't attend, they threaten you that you cannot supervise the foreign exchange students and their host families even you worked SO hard to place them. The staff in MA are bunch of jerks. The good decent people leave the organization pretty quickly (because they can't stand those losers). Therefore, the turn-over rate is very high. Also, some of the long-time coordinators are very arrogant and can be very nasty & territorial toward new coordinators. They have too much of attitude. I warn people not to involve this freaking organization that only takes advantage of you.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
