Are Hoteliers just as Underpaid in CH as in the UK?

Hey Everyone !

Well well ... I will be moving to Zurich by January 2009 and was wondering what the Hotel Industry is like in CH? Is it just as underpaid as in the UK?
What would be the salary of a a General Manager of a 60 room hotel?

Are the hours just as long as everywhere else in the world ?

I am currently the General Manager of an award winning resort in Africa on the Indian Ocean and was wondering what potential I would have in CH?

Any hoteliers out here that can help me with some contacts? My German is pretty basic, so I guess I will be taking lessons to learn the language as well. Unless of course there are some English speaking jobs available in the industry.

I would really appreciate any help! Thanks a lot !!!

Hey Dave,

Thanks for the response.
Honestly, thats a terrible salary for a GM!
My fiancee is a junior marketing manager and earns the same!
I guess my industry is doomed ... hahaha

Once again thanks a lot.
Are you a hotelier as well or simply being very helpful?

I think Dave was trying to be funny.

He may have been insinuating that it is dependant on your experience, role requirements and what not, as it is challenging to generically categorise any such roles, and hours.

He may have also been implying that you should have a look around and do some research, even on this forum you may find some other information.

Good luck

Earlier today (Tuesday, it is now Wednesday in Switzerland ) GVA Offline posted a link to an excellent salary calculator (in French only): Calculateur de salaire en ligne. It is based on salaries in Geneva only, and uses 2006 data, but seems to be the best estimator you are likely to find.
