Becoming Wizz Air Cabin Crew

Application process

If you’re thinking of becoming Wizz Air Cabin Crew, you can apply on the career section of their website. You need to submit your CV and 2 photos – one face and one full body. You also need to fill in their Cabin Crew data sheet along with your application, which you can download during the application.

If successful, you will then be invited to a recruitment day. The day starts with an introduction from the company. After this, you will be required to take part in a number of assessment centre-type activities and team games. These are designed to assess your communication, interpersonal, teamwork and problem-solving skills.

After these activities, selected (successful) participants will be invited to attend a personal interview.

Alternatively, Whizz Air also host a number of open recruitment days. These are listed on their website and you can attend without an invitation. You are just required to bring along your CV and photo ID.

Training

If you are successful you will take part in a 5-week training course. This training will cover everything you need to know for the job. It involves training in:

  • First Aid
  • Aviation Security
  • A320 Type training
  • Cabin Attendant Duty Training
  • catering/sales training.

The cost of this training course is covered by Wizz Air, but you are required to pay the cost of the obligatory medical exam. This costs approx. 140 Euro.

Working life

As Wizz Air Cabin Crew, you will fly to various European destinations from its central and eastern European base airports. 

Your roster will differ each month – including where you will be flying to and what time flights you will be working. 

Salary

You will start as a Junior flight attendant for your 6-month probation period. Your salary rises after 9 months when you become a Senior flight attendant. Your salary is composed of your basic salary, flying hours and commission from onboard sales.

Accommodation

Wizz Air do not provide accommodation for their Cabin Crew. You’re expected to either live or be ready to move within 60 minutes of your chosen base. You’re also expected to make your own way to the base airport for work.
