    Good idea, but that salary is a misery. Minimal wage of EUR 250 is an absolute must.

      The salary itself is not that, it's just the part that's paid for by the government.

    I know many people with no experience that would pay to get experience. They were paying for the theoretical knowledge in school.

  3. This will end in a 'believe it or not' column in some newspaper.
    170eur month!? That cannot cover the public transport to and from the airport (or their office in NBG) if you live in Belgrade suburbs...

    Is AS paying the regular salary on top of this government provided money (500+ eur)?

    Almost all the job positions are scattered in the Serbian province meaning that the salaries are expected to be low. This is an all-time classic. Capital cities have higher salaries and smaller provincial towns lower ones.

      It isn't actuality read what it says. They get the money from the government and then the comoany can decide IF it wants to pay more. No one will.

      And you know that "no one will"? Lol. Thanks for enlightening us with your doom and gloom. Spewing negativity in response to positive announcements is so entrenched in the national character.

    3. 'Spewing negativity'?
      I will never understand how some people are ok with being treated like modern day slaves.
      They should be ashamed of offering 170eur as a 'salary incentive' in a city where that money can be spent on a dinner for 2 :(
      We are not negative, we are sick of being poor when as a nation, we have so much potential...

      To gain work experience people out of schools and univerities in the West seek volunteer and internship positions at companies in the field. Volunteer means FREE and internships are typically MINIMUM WAGE. Nemanja you may need some attitude adjustment to survive in the real world.

    5. Friends in Germany are paid minimum 1200 eur for their internships.
      I on the other hand have a (very) well paid job working for a foreign company.

      What I'm saying is, as long as people continue accepting low wages, the government and companies will keep offering them.
      I want other people in my country to have a prosperous life, not to leave for a better life to western europe.

      Minimum wage in Germany is about 9.19EUR per hour. Assuming 160 hours a month, that's 1470 eur per month. Your friends are paid below minimum wage for their internship and they will not have a `prosperous life` with that salary in Germany.

      Internship was not meant for them to get rich, only to get real experience. As I said, normal countries do this as a regular thing and it is great same approach exists in Serbia. Only philistines continue to think internships are `modern day slavery` as their peasant mindset is not focused on wealth of experience but measured only by short term material gain.

    Some people spend days commenting Air Serbia on social media: how they would manage the airline, make profit, do things better... and all without being paid one cent! Now they can actually work for the airline, show their talent... and get paid!

      Incentive is there to help people gain temporary work experience and exists in one form or another in many developed countries. It is not yet another airline subsidy.
