If he was on a LOCAL contract and not that Confair rubbish, then he should be hitting those numbers. Unless he's been pulling off a lot of sickies and not getting his sector pay in.

I got it about 1,5 month before the company intro course. Also the base where you do your linetraining might be different than your base after your line check.

Hi guys,

Sorry it's true I didn't read everything on this thread that is now reaching 23 pages, (only the last 4 pages and other thread) but I have a few questions for those who still like Wizzair and are not ONLY in the salary debate..

I was at a pilot open day in Bucharest (last 24th of January) and at the first session there where only about 40 people and more than 50% were applying for Capt fast track, 10% didn't met the requirements and were just taking infos, other were looking for FO or SFO depending of previous XP..

- Does somebody know where we are this year with the recruitment of Non-rated (experienced) FO ?
- The number they are planning to recruit this year ?

It seems that they are mostly looking for Capt as everywhere else.. But said nothing about how many FO they where looking for...

-Does someone received an interview/assessment date for a FO position lately ? and if so how long after an open day, and which one ?

- Was someone here on the second session that day ? how many people ?

Thank you guys !
Cheers

Hi,

I was also at the same event in Bucharest.
Yes, they did talk about the Captain roles more but i think that was mostly because there were more captains there then FOs.
To be honest, i am not disappointed that there were so few looking for the cadet role.
i think the are lookkng more to recruit cadets so they can train them as they please. But thatís just my point of view.

I didnít leave any CV because i am waiting to finish my MCC and JOC and there was no point leaving one there without meeting the requirements.

Donít count on them contacting you from that Open Day, you should also submit throught their career page if ypu havenít yet, that is if you meet all the requirements.

As long as you meet the requirements for one of the entry routes, be it DEC or cadet, you will most likely get invited for an interview.

Each recruitment day is NOT a competition, they simply need you to pass the selection process and you will be offered a position.

As for numbers? They can't find enough at the moment.

Good luck...

Yes I meet all the requirements as experienced non qualified FO..
Yes of course I submited also on their website, even before going there and I left a CV..
I just didn't send a CV at the email adress that is on their card..

I'm happy too there were only a few people there, I was expecting at least 200 people/session as in other reports from 2 years ago.

Didn't she say we could expect an answer by the end of this week ? nothing for now..

I went to an Open day around a year ago, was told most would receive an update within a week and others had to wait. Took them 3 weeks to get back to me just to let me know I was going to be invited for an assessment.

As it stands right now, the sim is running at full capacity in BUD with new guys being sent to Sofia, Amsterdam and Gatwick just to complete company induction.
Some are having to wait over a month to get sim slots.

They are desperately requiring their new training centre to be completed to get extra sims in but for now it is just a long queue.

Be patient and your time will come, Wizz is expanding very quickly. I believe it is something around the likes of 15 aircrafts joining the fleet between march and june alone!

When your time comes for the interview, it is crucial to remember you are not competing against the others in the group. There will most likely be around 20 candidates on a day. You simply get through all the hurdles or you get cut as the day goes. The recruitment team is very friendly and will make you feel welcomed.

Excellent news.
So keep motivated and prepare ! Hopefully they will contact me at one point..

Do you remember how long you waited after they told you, you'll get an interview, and the moment you finally went there ?
Just to know how much time to prepare..

thanks for everything !

At the last Open Day in Bucharest last month, they mentioned that now when you apply for a position, the first phase will be to video yourself somehow on your laptop/tablet where you answer some of their questions and then send the video to them.

Did anybody apply recently and experienced this?

Hey everyone.

Anyone here able to tell me what the take home pay, ie after social and tax is for a new captain based in Bucharest?

I know it varies based on single, married, kids etc and flown sectors, just looking for ballpark figures.
Also, number of sectors on a 5/4 roster and are there any standbys?

Thanks for any insights

Slightly for the better but not a big difference at all. Big disappointment for most of the pilots in the company.

Why wait? From the numbers presented by management itís from +15% to -5% across the network.

Who presented these numbers? According to CEO's letter the change should not result in a decrease anywhere.

I'm guessing he's GDN based.... They seem to have this idea that they are being targeted and will suffer as they do 4 sector days, can't even wait to see the figures to know what the deal is before moaning!

Sure they spend more time on the ground but I am sure this was thought of and they will somehow be compensated, just like how management has been trying to give equal conditions of lifestyle at each base so far.....

Time will tell.

For the short sector you loose something. I have sectors they pay now 12.5 euros instead of 45 in my case. Some days, the combination of short and medium flights gives you a lower pay with the new scheme than with the old. Included the per diem. Generally speaking if you have a lot of days with four short or short and medium sectors you loose something. But the also introduced a base multiplier for each dofferent base, trying to avoid peole loosing money.

Then in that case, I retract my comment and fully sympathise with your situation.
Hopefully things will work out for every base one way or another!
