Bad experience

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I had a bad experience at Wizz Air, flying more than 90 block hours per month, I was earning about 1200€/month (comision included)..I was always exhausted, with the crazy schedule and for nothing..

Training is so wrong

The initial training is organised worse than organising a booze up in a brewery! They have Independent company’s conducting the first aid training. Down load first aid training from random books on the internet. The two sources of info differ completely! The amount of people who fail the training demonstrates a true forecast of the low standards of training! They do not advise you what you need to know in the training and expect you to know irrelevant parts which wastes time! The future is brighter. Do not work for this lot!

Good stuff travel

Avoid if you can! Long shift, unprofessional management with no communication skills. Low pay, lots of forced unpaid leave. Only good thing is staff travel.

Bad experience

The company is an awful place to work. Made to feel uncomfortable by other crew members. Speaking other languages with each other and making you feel isolated. Management are unprofessional and lack communication. Company does not care about their staff. Money is shocking. Overall wouldn’t recommend.

Pros

Nothing

Cons

Everything

Awful company to work for

I have been bullied by the manager as well as seniors during training. Extreme amount of pressure which affected my well being and had to be signed off work to then had my manager gaining up on me saying there is consistency in my sick days off rather than asking why I was off and caring about my well being

Cons

Bullying, affected mental health, poor salary, poor training

Fast paced airline

Fast growing, multicultural place, great for young people. Easy atmosphere but demanding working hours. Many manuals to read and procedures to know and follow. Safe place to work

N/a

You need to find out for yourself..it's a waste of time..too many fraverts in the job, some staff are really helpful others just work and go home no hello or high..the pay is well under compared to the job you do..some departments should be paid more than others as they take on alot more stress/work/abuse from passengers.

A nightmare combination of mostly green & inexperienced people employed by a poor & inexperienced Management!

The company has a strong image but has done itself no favours in the long term by employing so many mostly very green & inexperienced people to crew its aircraft, recruited sadly in the main by a poor & inexperienced management, and this is unfortunately frequently reflected in the quality and delivery of their cabin service. The staff turnover is truly phenominal for an airline and explains why they are continually having to recruit so many more people to fill up all the vacant positions. It seemed to many of us as crew that anyone with any previous experience is not really valued in this company, they would much prefer to have inexperienced people who in theory would be far easier to push around. Many people are put off right from the start by the lack of any salary for up to 3 months for new-joiners, and although crews are locally based, their training takes place at the company's Budapest Training Centre, which for many will mean up to 6 weeks away from home, family & friends and also having to support themselves financially during this time with absolutely no income or salary, which is a very poor reflection on the company culture and shows how much they really value their crews. In addition to this, new-joiners have to endure an 18-month period of probation before there is any chance of being made permanent. Many have already jumped ship or been pushed out long before this time and so this sorry state of affairs is set to be continually perpetuated. The long duty hours can be extremely tiring, often finding yourself having to go into discretion due to various changing -

The place where the lack of common sense and an unexperienced management make a horrible combination

The job itself is very easy, you don't work many days in a month but you do spend the remaining days at home or in bed because the conditions in which you have to work in are extremely tiring. The lack of humidity, polluted air blown into the cabin thru the engines and the constant pressure changes not to mention cosmic radiation are enough to make anyone fatigued. Although these are circumstances any crew has to come to terms with, especially the ones flying short haul, there is very little understanding from the company's side towards this. There is no fixed roster for cabin crew so basically they whistle you run. Roster changes are constant because of the ultra low cost model obviously all departments are understaffed. Even-though most flights are legal according to the flight time limitation requirements they pay very little attention to wether something is tiring to do or not. If it's legal you need to do it so flying night flights, finishing at 8 AM in the morning and then with a one day break having to do a morning flight starting at 4 AM is very common. The managers whom are responsible for hundreds of people are picked from ex-cabin crew so they have very little or no experience in management because they refuse to bring in outsiders for these positions. Furthermore because on the cabin crew side they're all from Eastern Europe some of them lack basic communication skills as well.

Good environment inside the plane, bad outside.

Wizzair is a company where you survive more than live. The payments are execrable, there were moments when some of the colleagues where paid 750£ for a month. (Is true, the work was very little, but the rent and the food doesn't ask you how much you worked for that month). Other than that, the management works on preferences and many times on ethnic preferences so you must be 'accurate' and others to evolve. The colleagues are top,, lovely people most of them. So unless you have another income you will have difficult times. Hope it helps you
