NO, the duties of this job are not an "intern" position"
More bottom feeders trying to get labor for free under the guise of "intern"
READ THIS:

The U.S. Dept. of Labor utilizes the below listed criteria, as created by the U.S. Supreme Court
(Walling v. Portland Terminal Co. (1947) 330 U.S. 148), to determine whether a person is really
an intern, or whether they are an employee who must be paid and treated according to the
Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA):

1. The training is similar to that which would be given in a vocational school;
2. The training is for the benefit of the trainee;
3. The trainees do not displace regular employees, and work under close observation;
4. The employer that provides the training derives no immediate advantage from the
activities of the trainees and on occasion the employer’s operations may actually be impeded;
