Additional Information

The low-cost Spanish airline Vueling will be in Porto to recruit 400 persons to operate from its base in Porto. Trade unions highlights that working conditions are not comparable between different companies and there are cases where the applicant has to pay for the whole process (fee for interview, food and accommodation and training) , which can mean an expense of several thousand Euro with no guarantee of being hired.
