The others telling you it's wrong obviously didn't read all the details in your question, or are misinformed...
Thanks, unfortunate in my situation this is a case.

And so they should have. A quick Google shows a Tesco delivery driver working 40hrs a week earns approx 1750e a month.

I humbly doubt that any Tesco driver would make $7k after 6 months of training, though...

If you are happy that your future employer values you at this amount, as a welcome to the company, then I wish you well, and I'll see you at the bottom!

Non EU cadet information

So I am a Ukrainian and I want to join as a cadet FO. Will I be based only in Ukraine ? Or can I be placed in the EU and the wizz can facilitate a visa.


Redundant as I am a national but I haven't lived in Ukraine for over a decade.
Thanks

Hi gents: Just an update from a recent assessment. Very straight forward. Friendly team - nevertheless I didn't have this 'warm welcome' feeling. You get the feeling that they don't really need you at this moment due the market situation.
Some infos about the ATPL/Wizzair related Quiz: as already previous described. A big variatiy of topics. Mainly involving the topics of performance, GNAV, MET and OPS. I used skybrary and the fasttrack atpl app (specific for the wizzair test). Furthermore I used the ACE book.
Interview: questiosn about motivation, avition background, family, technical questions (CDL; MEL; High lift devices)
SIM: Raw Data depature, steep turns, intercept radial - engine high vibration - leading to single engine and single engine approach.

Even if passed I wouldnt take the job due to the new terms. For SFO going for command its actually pay to fly when you initially get 2000 Euro gross.

What do you mean "new terms"?

2000 euro for SFO? I think you are grossly misinformed...

To clarify: when you apply for the Fast Track command you only get 2000 gross during training. This can take up to 9 month. So literary you work for peanuts for nearly a year. That is buying an upgrade!

Well, he didn't clearly state which position he was applying for...but according to a previous discussion few posts above, and his pseudo, one can reasonably assume that he is applying as a NTR RAP Command ➡️ he'd be joining as a direct entry captain with initially 2000€ gross salary during training.

I don’t know which interview you attended but seems like it wasn’t WZZ’s.There is no ‘’NEW TERMS’’ and WZZ has never been pay to fly airline.There is no 2000E gross salary and i don’t know where did it come from ......if u join as a cadet or low time pilot then You’re subjected to so called “Training Salary” which is 800-900 Euros per month until release.If u join with more than 2800 h factorized hours then u get full basic salary from day one including flight pay during your line training.So SFO(more than 2800 h factorized) basic salary gross is 26000 euros per year so during the training and BEFORE your line training u get 2166 Euros per month and u will not pay any tax because initially the income is low.Same applies to DEC, while all other get this training salary.Once you start line training as a DEC or SFO u get full salary.

Except when the recruitment team was collecting below the desk money to bypass the ensure success at the interview stage?

You’re subjected to so called “Training Salary” which is 800-900 Euros per month until release.
One could argue getting less than minimum wage in most European countries to fly 230 people/flight on a full time schedule is P2F.

BEFORE your line training u get 2166 Euros per month and u will not pay any tax because initially the income is low
Have to correct you there. You will not pay any SWISS tax, because in Switzerland's (which is obvious, given you fly for Hungarian airline with HA- registered aircraft) terms this salary makes you very poor.You still have to pay your tax where you reside and social contributions. The pink gold standard HR probably forgot to mention this pesky little detail during the interview.
