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"
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;
