Vueling Conditions & Contracts

Hello guys. Does anyone have an update on the conditions and contracts Vueling is offering to Junior First Officer? Just read they don't require Spanish level 4 anymore.
Cheers

The details about the contract will be shared on an exclusive interview with the Chief Pilot on the day of the assessments.

From the information I handle, I can tell you a few things though. Initially, we have a seasonal contract, that in two years’ time could become permanent depending on performance. The bases we have in Europe are TLS, NTE, BOD, SXB, VRN, VCE, GOA & PMO, we do not know which base would be in your case, but we do take into consideration the pilot’s preference. I can also tell you that for a CP in France, that flies 90 hours in high season, the approximate monthly salary is 10.000 euros.

These are the spanish bull's ur dealing with. good luck.

just to clarify: the French tax system is in transition right now, but up until now the net salary you get every month is before income taxes, so you will not have 10000 in your pockets, but a lot less

You must be speaking about Volotea so you are posting in the wrong topic.

They don't care about spanish level 4. I did my interview in 50/100 French and 50 English.
They were extremely vague on the terms and conditions.
They did insist on the fact that if you are on a spanish contract you will be on a six month contract So they can put you aside in winter without paying you.
In France it is impossible due to the legislation so you are on a permanent contract. But you are still payed like shit.
As far as pay goes, you are not payed until you are online. (not payed in line training actually flying the bird)
I am not sure about the pay scale.
They said it was around 7 years to upgrade to Capt.

I didn't take the job...

Terms and conditions are easy to find online in details https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour..._Xim32l6i_Bj7K

So they can put you aside in winter without paying you.
It doesn't happen. There's a condiderable lack of pilots and no one who recently entered in the company was stopped during the winter, everyone kept flying normally, ofter covering other base s deficiencys.

As far as pay goes, you are not payed until you are online.
That's completely false, you do get paid during the line training. What is true is that you get paid based on the entry level; after you complete the training you go to the level you are, based on your hours.

I am not sure about the pay scale.
See above

I didn't take the job.
I honestly would have done a bit more researches before refusing the job. Now I'm not saying it's the best job you can find, but it definitely has some nice stuff you won't find in many other companies (see extra crew, zed tickets ecc). The salary is lower than easy, Ryan, Norwegian ecc but it's bound to improve soon.

FYI all new recruits based in spain have been signing a full time permanent contract from day one, for more than 2 years now. Things have changed.
unexperienced FOs based in France can expect 3500 euros per month and salary would go up to 5 to 6000 euros per month for ecperienced FOs, that is with a permanent french contract. As someone wrote above, at Vueling you have loss of licence insurance, private health insurance, zed tikets with most airlines in the world, unlimited vueling staff tickets for 8 family members of your choice, iberia staff tickets for parents or sisters and brother, and free jumpseat for yourself. More benefits which I will not mention here, and of course free class 1 renewal, free parking card, free uniform including shoes, socks, luggages,.... all those basic things that I am affraid you will have to pay at Ryanair, my friend. Good luck and enjoy Ryanair

What an awesome airline - to build hours and then get the [email protected] out of there.. How nice - you get ID ickets for your brothers and sisters, and benefits like class 1 renewal, a parking card... shoes... What at bloody tool from another school.. Can I ask you a personal question - did your parents pay for your "ticket"? Go to a real airline or stay ignorant.

You clearly have a problem with Vueling, did you fail the interview with them?

The benefits are great, they let you do the type rating wherever you want, the atmosphere at work is amazing, cabin crews are hot, a fo during the first years will earn an average of 3000+ euros (and its going to rise very soon) and as already said above you fly fore free with vueling plus you have a huge amount of vlg+iberia+zed tickets for you and for your family/friends.

Of course is not the perfect job, things like FO salary and roster changes in bcn have to be fixed, but overall is not a bad deal at all.

Ps: do some researches, you thought Vueling was Volotea just few days ago!

Jajajajajajajjaja this jealous troll is good fun actually

Yep, you’ll get your socks before your line training. This is absolutely normal but I was replying to a previous member who decided to go to Ryanair, and as we know Ryanair doesn’t pay for anything.

Anyway, Yes I do confirm that our cabin crews are hot

In the meantime my friend, as suggested before please return to better inform yourself about airlines, I think you are mixing up too many things.

The socks thing deserves special mention as you get a MASSIVE amount of socks!! I think I got like 20 or more pairs.
And yeah, the best part is that you get them even before the line training!!
