Nothing for long time employment

Pros

New airplanes at low age

Cons

Work and pay conditions the worsest of all european low cost airlines with more than 150 aircraft.

Advice to management

.

Advice to future employees

High workload with low payment. During bonding time after release a cabin chief earns more compared to FO.

good for progression but bad T&C overall

Cross markRecommended to other Pilots Cross markPositive business outlookCross markApproval of management

Pros

fleet is being renewed to neos, good command upgrade opportunities, reasonable salary for eastern european standards

Cons

unstable rosters, incompetent management, disorganized crewing and HR, newcomers get bad bases like Albania, Georgia. lots of employees are pessimistic, morale is at an all time low, high number of resignations

Advice to management

build a foundation for the upcoming fleet expansion and streamline processes in the office. improve communication between departments. stabilize rosters and rebuild the image of the company

Advice to future employees

If you dont care about where you work (initially probably Craiova, Suceava, Tirana or Kutaisi), if you dont mind being bonded to get a 'free' type rating for a320 this is the place for you. we fly 900 h a year. Good command upgrade opportunities. Good training

Great airline to start your career or upgrade

CheckmarkRecommended to other Pilots CheckmarkPositive business outlookCheckmarkApproval of management

Pros

Pristine training, new aircraft, great SOP's and lots of upgrade opportunities. Extremely fair and down-to-earth management.

Cons

The money is simply too low to consider Wizz as a long-term employer. Schedules are pretty intensive, as one may expect from a ultra-lowcost carrier.

Advice to management

Increase salaries.

Advice to future employees

Great place to come and build up experience - but don't forget to move on.
