just another exploited intern

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Salvatore Ferragamo as an intern

Prosvery impressive experience to have on your cv - the brand is well known and having worked there can positively influence recruiters.

Consalthough the internship was very successful, ther did not want to hire me, but preferred to get another intern - who had to be fully trained again. this makes them save on the short term, but it's bad economy on the long term.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
