Thanks guys for your input
Out of interest could you tell us who offered you this job? If you can't name them can you tell us what kind of industry you work / plan to work in?

That is horrendous. How does a company or organisation justify such practices?

Re: 26400 euros p.a, Cost of living in geneva

That's less than the average salary of housekeepers and they get additional social support for some things: http://www.salaryexplorer.com/salary...b=16&jobtype=1 .

I lived in Geneva, and you can rent a decent studio for 1,000-1,200 CHF. For a salary of 2,200 EUR (which is about 2,2000 CHF at the moment), you might have to share an apartment, rent a room or stay in a really small apartment for 600-700 CHF, where you can hear everyone breathe and where the older people complain that you flushed the toilet after 10 pm or had a shower for over 5 minutes. Of course you can live on that salary, but it depends on what kind of lifestyle you are used to or are willing to tolerate.

I hope you get a better offer somewhere else. Good luck!

The mind boggles! You are aware that this forum is for things related to Switzerland right?

You are also aware that Vienna is not in Switzerland?

Re: 26400 euros p.a, Cost of living in geneva

Please check this

http://www.poliscirumors.com/topic/v...chool-post-doc

as they discussed the cost of living in Vienna as a postdoc (33.000 before taxes). About 1600 per month after taxes.

Is this the same employer? Are you sure they are legit? It seems weird that they can give you the same job/money in different cities.

Re: 26400 euros p.a, Cost of living in geneva

I don't like criticizing people on the forum (too much) but this is just epic laziness. People trying to help the op, who was too lazy to even check where the job was in the first place, and then didn't even have the grace to feel embarrassed at wasting people's time. He actually had the cheek to ask someone to direct him to a forum for Austria. There are so many posters who just post things on a complete whim. Then it makes me feel that those who genuinely try to help people are just wasting their time. It certainly makes me think twice about replying to 'lazy' posts.
