Is a salary of 2,550 zloty enough for living in Warsaw?

Hi, I applied to a call center in Warsaw (a job with English and Bulgarian), it pays 2,550 zl or about 600 Euro. Is this enough to live there as I assume Wawa is more expensive than Sofia?

Surprisingly, it seems some call center jobs pay more in Sofia where the cost of living is cheaper. I can easily get 800-900 Euro here with English language, for German and French you can get even 1000 Euro. Not that a call center job is any good but I am surprised by such a discrepancy.

In Warsaw you can also get 1000 e plus with English, German or French.

In Warsaw you will really struggle to live on that. Its minimum wage and nobody in Warsaw pays minimum wage any more - you could probably get 3500 washing dishes or stacking shelves in Biedronka. Ask for more or wait for something better

@Zlatko

You could survive. Barely. But I wouldn't call it living.

Yeah I declined the offer. The only good thing was they offered accommodation for 2 weeks so no need for a hotel. Maybe it's good to just test the waters (see if I like Poland) but it seems too low. I was told one needs to know the local language for higher positions but some guys seem so lucky like this Latino:
