Polonia / Polish people working in Germany after studying in Poland, what salary do you get? [6]

In certain European countries, polish people are still seen as cheap labor, unfortunately. I was wondering what is the situation of polish people who have gotten an education in Poland and who are working in Germany after graduation in an area related to what they studied. Which salary are you getting? are you getting the same as a German with a similar education? or indeed german companies offer lower wages for polish people?

Work / Why companies in Poland don't answer back sent work applications? [2]

I have sent several work applications to different countries among those Poland. What I have realized is that companies in Poland almost NEVER answer back.

I mean, in other countries companies almost always answer you and let you know that your application has been received and if your application has been successful or not.

I was interested in a position in Poland at a company from my home country, the HR department in Poland never replied my emails, I had to personally contact the HR department at my home country, tell them I was interested at a position in Poland, they gave me further advice and I finally got the position.

But what is wrong with companies in Poland which never answer back? why do they do this? There are probably to few jobs and they want to jealously keep them for close friends/relatives ?

This is not about going 'green' , it is about profit. Companies which collect garbage which has been previously separated can reduce their treatment costs and thus increase their profit using the average citizen work for that. Then those companies charge the municipality which charges their citizens for collecting the garbage.

The biggest garbage collector in Poland is the German company REMONDIS, which is widely known for paying very low wages (in Poland as well as in Germany) and having a slave policy towards their employees (for instance, by not paying extra worked hours) and much more.

Summarizing, you guys benefit the Germans by segregating the garbage, which make profit by treating your waste, separate it, and resell some materials gotten out of it

of course. As I mentioned before, this is not about going green, this is about charging more to the average citizen. The German company REMONDIS will benefit from that

The biggest problem - look at the garbage containers in Poland. You can see through all garbage. And they are usually located in the central locations of town/villages. Looks ugly. But someone is saving money by making containers from wire instead of from full-cover plastic.

Then some people from Poland should start a waste treatment plant, recover some of the waste so it can be recycled and kick out the germans from doing that.

Perhaps those anti Remondis would like to start their own garbage collection company? No, then shut it.

you don't know the company and neither you know their policies. You are not in a position for saying anything concerning that

I, for one, am tired of seeing garbage lining the streets and in the forest close to my house. It is disgusting.

yes, I am agree. I am absolutely against seeing garbage on the streets, however, there should be a policy from which everyone is benefited from collecting the garbage, and not that the average citizen pays more to a German company (REMONDIS)which takes the money out of Poland

But wait a little, soon competition will make prices drop.

Let's hope so.

Polish companies should have taken first and not the German company REMONDIS which has a slave policy, pays very low wages and takes the profit out of Poland.

If a local polish company collects and treats the garbage, the local economy can benefit from that and the money stays in Poland.

no, but i don't want to pay any penny to a German company which treats its employees like slaves, pays them very low wages while simultaneously making record profit and takes the earned money out of Poland. Are you insane?

hmm.....I can't imagine people are fighting to become garbage men. If they don't like it then go to a different garbage company. You do know that this is not a high skill job, right?

There is also the engineering part of designing and operating such waste treatment plants, not only 'collecting' garbage. Even so, for collecting garbage not special skills are needed, the policies of REMONDIS against its employees are wrong. That other companies do something similar, does not justify that REMONDIS is allowed to do so.

And again, it is slave labor in favor of the Germans and I am against that, specially because I know the structure of REMONDIS very well

yes, unfortunately, quite often the government does not represent the will of its citizens

History / How come Poles like Russians but not Germans? [216]

Because the Germans dislike Poles even more. If you are German, you know very well which stereotypes they have towards Poles. However the Germans do still have those bad stereotypes against almost every nation/race on earth. On the other side, the Poles also have some stereotypes against other people. However the Germans still believe inside them they are better in every way than any other nation/people on earth. Due to the constant media in Germany suppressing that mentality, the Germans don't speak it openly but they still think so.

Once I was in Germany speaking polish with my polish girlfriend, we had people looking angry at us just to the fact that we were speaking polish. Try for instance driving a polish registered car in Germany, and you will realize that some drivers will get aggressive towards you. The Germans think the Poles are nothing more than 'cheap labor' .

By the way, I was recently in Germany again, I mentioned to someone that I stay very often at X place in Poland where my girlfriend comes from. His answer 'that is the place where the cleaning ladies come from'

Perhaps "patrik" would like to show us some evidence of his claims that they are a terrible company

I can speak from experiences with that particular company in Germany. Firstly, that company owns many other companies which give different industrial services. In many cases they hire foreign people (such as Poles) to do the dirty job. They are offered contracts in which the working time is 40 hours per week. However it is stayed that it will be required to work extra-hours and there is no payment for those extra-hours. You will assume, you would probably have to work 1 hour more per day as a maximum. However this is not the case. I know from some cases in which that company expects people to work 84 hours per week ( 12 hours shift, plus Saturday and Sunday) with no extra remuneration. A German wouldn't do that, so they hire Poles (or other foreigners) which don't know very well the German laws thus they can be easily exploited by the company. If those foreigners reject to do so, they get fired immediately.

It is firstly against the German law to not pay for extra worked hours. If it is stayed that 'extra hours' are included in the salary, it should be clearly stayed how many hours are included in this salary. Many foreigners do not know that and the company takes advantage of that.

Conclusion, that company treats no-germans worse and has a slave policy towards its employees. The same company is making enormous profit out of Poland as a garbage collector and still treats its employees like cr*p .

Elena Poniatoska probably would be a better candidate
