This was presented during assessment:
Before April 2022:
FO Base 18375 EUR
SFO Base 22750 EUR

After April 2022:
FO Base 21000 EUR
SFO Base 26000 EUR

Flight pay 0.022 FO, 0.037 SFO
Landing 12 FO, 19 SFO

We were told to expect 30-50k net (from April) as SFO.

No information was given on how long to command, just basic requirements. Anyone knows more?

Hi boys, going for the interview in September, i see a lot of people telling that the interview is getting harder, i guess the market is in their favor and they want to keep exactly what they want.
I'm type rated with 2k+ hrs and have already experience in ultra low cost, do i fall in the SFO category for Wizz ?
If anyone has any feedback of the interview that would be amazing!

the market is in their favor? Maybe will not be when most of their expats run away and escape of this company.
I have seen rosters of friends! Just one word define WIZZAIR now. Mad house! Let see if they don’t collapse.

Well, with how many pilots looking for jobs i believe it's in their favor yeah!
Hopefully the new hires will help change your friend schedule
And tbh which LCC doesn't have crazy schedule ?

yeah agree but not many pilots accept to move their families and be a slaves in Eastern Europe non popular base or go alone without Roster.

which other LCC has not crazy roster? Easy, Ryan, Vueling...
some of them fly a lot yeah but Ryan still complying with 5 on 4 off in Western Europe bases which in WIZZAIR it doesn’t happen because they do not have and will not have enough pilots to guarantee a roster. Salary is worst and bases are mostly non popular. They don’t offer local contracts anymore just broker contract, while Ryan is finishing their broker contracts and putting all their pilots in local contracts. Ryan recognize Unions so some kind of protection for pilots is given...
so as soon as Ryan start their recruitment, EasyJet, Volotea... lot of pilots from WIZZ will try to jump in in order to have a little decent life.

And WIZZ will collapse... time will give me the reason

Doubt if they ever collapse. Stop growing, maybe.

Having friends in both Ryanair and Volotea I would say that i rather work my backside off during the summer season and chill during the winter months in a Volotea base or having more or less a life with the Ryanair 5/4 than getting shafted and shifted around by the clowns in Wizz HQ all over the show with no roster, insurance, pension and worker's protection.

I don’t think RyanP2FAir will be hiring experienced pilots anymore. Easy is still running part-time. Eurowings…you might as well work at McDonald’s with what they’re offering. I don’t know about Volotea and Vueling but it’s probably not much more than Eurowings.

buddy I saw how Ryanair collapse in 2017 because of lack of pilots during summer. Cancelling thousand of flights. They just said that it was a misleading about pilots vacations.

that will happen to WIZZ but worst

Indeed. Sorry I thought you meant collapse as bankruptcy. Now it's clear. Definitely coming to them.

Five consecutive days OFF in a month and 24 calendar days of vacation annually is nothing if you're commuting. Out of the five days, one or two will have to be spent travelling (if you're on an early shift on the final day of work, you might be lucky enough to get home on the same day), leaving you with three or four days at home every month. So, unless a proper commuting roster is reinstated, there will be a mass exodus of commuting pilots the moment other places start hiring on a significant scale.

Was this applicable to the U.K base?

Very low for a professional career and the cost of living etc, do they offer retirement like pensions?

HGV drivers are paid more than this in the U.K

Who would want to train to be a professional pilot considering the investment if salaries and benefits are no longer their.

Indeed, some people made redundant during the pandemic have turned down Wizzair given they would have to take an unacceptably high pay cut from their current non-aviation job.

Interesting times.
