I wish I could help.
Not as much as in Wrocław, Kraków and Warsaw for sure.
4 thousands at least, but I may be wrong.
Bu I think somebody who is in IT field should tell you, because I am in education field and salaries here (netto of course) are around 1000 -2000.

Why is it all those Indians get IT jobs in Poland? Is it for their low salary expectations, or do they have special skills?
Poland also has its share of competent IT people I would think.

Yes, but they can earn higher wages outside Poland (without needing to bother with work permits).

how hard it is to live and work in Bydgoszcz, Poland without knowing polish

Very hard. If you don't have a job lined up before you arrive you'll have a very hard time finding anything.
28 Jul 2013 #13
You say you have a job offer but then you are asking what is the best salary you can get. Sounds a bit fishy to me.

No, it's normal, that the company asks him for his expectations and they answer based on them.

Salary range in Poland: - page 11

Administrator Systemu: min: 3000 PLN gross in Pomorskie max: 15000 in Warszawa

And according to this page: median salary for IT workers in Kujawsko Pomorskie (region where Bydgoszcz is) is 4500PLN Gross. It's 3200PLN Net.

So I would suggest you to ask for minimum 5000pln gross

Cost of living you can see here:

i don't know polish , i only know English

If you don't speak very fluent Polish you have about a one in a thousand chance of finding a job in Bydgoszcz. Don't go to Bydgoszcz unless you already have a job waiting.

Read his topic. He has a job offer!

Most of people age 15 - 35 will speak some English in Bydgoszcz. You will have to learn some basic Polish to do shopping in small stores and you will probably need help of somebody to do all necessary bureaucracy. Also it's good to have somebody to help you rent apartment. In the end Indians mentioned by me are doing well there.

Thank you very much , you were very supportive

Do you know if there are any Arab or Egyptian people living there Bydgoszcz, Poland

There are certainly a few. You may notice a few shops (especially fast food) run by Arab people and there are muslim prayers at this address:

run by Arab people

I've just learned that Arabs are not only citizens of Saudi Arabia Kingdom.

Only a few are. Saudi is mostly empty space and at least half of those living in Saudi aren't Arabs. Not many Saudis or gulf Arabs (Emirati, Qatari, etc) in Poland, but plenty of people from Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Egypt - including in Bydgoszcz.
30 Jul 2013 #23
Thank you all very much , polish people are very supportive which encourage me to go there and accept the offer

If any one knows any Arab people living in bydgoszcz and can contact me with him, i will be very thankful
