Young Shanghainese Shocked by Low Wages and Probation Period

Shanghai Tropical Storm Beach Honey Competition semi-final backstage girls

A KDS member named “willwang22” posted the topic “The company I interviewed today unexpectedly discussed probation period wages…” with the above picture and bottom story:

960 RMB My God! After probation only 1200 RMB base salary.
Motherfucker thinks I am a migrant worker!
I graduated last year, my previous salary was ABOVE 3000 RMB!
Wasted my time going on this hot day. During my internship period I already clearly wrote my wage requirements. Fuck this dog company!


I came in to look at the picture.

Came in to look at the picture.

As long as the job listing does not have the wage scope, I will never submit a resume.

I am here to look at the picture.

That is even lower than being a security guard

Look at the picture.

Came in purely to look at the picture

The “lou zhu” was played

Came in to see the picture…what is this place?

Looking at picture…


If the job is to daily change these girls’ clothes, I am willing to accept it!

Tropical storm BEACH HONEY competition

More like bitch honey

Good picture.

Someone who has encountered the same thing floats by

Is that girl on the right padding her bra?

Floating by looking for a job…float float float float float float…

Then do not join this company.

Why are all the better jobs now so hard to find

The company does not lose anything interviewing you.

The economy is not booming…?????

Even migrant workers come in to look at this picture

That is even lower than migrant worker wages…

Nowadays, it is all like that everywhere.

Tell us the company’s name!

“Lou zhu,” which one in the picture is you?

What a coincidence, right now I am also in probationary period, and I am also making 960 RMB/month, haha

Vagrant companies are many…I have interviewed with many of them, wasting my time is very melancholy.

Real estate company?????

The migrant worker pay here is 60 RMB/day.

According to Shanghai’s minimum wage standards, any job’s wage should be rising each year.

If this company looks like that picture, at 960 RMB I will go!

If this company’s female coworkers are like those in the picture, I will work a month for free!

Wage is not a lot, but the girls in the picture are not bad…

As long as it is working with the beautiful girls in the picture, I will work for even 500 RMB

If it was me, I would have immediately yelled at him.

There is high demand for migrant work now.
What the migrant workers can do, the topic-starter may not be able to do.
What the topic-starter can do, the migrant workers are not necessarily unable to do.

The problem is that if you do not take the job, the “wai di ren” will take it

Sigh…society is like this…get used to it.

I have encountered this before.
I clearly wrote under 8000 RMB do not disturb me.
They offered me 2500 and asked if I would go interview.

Very common!
University student bank employees, one year probation 1000/month…
Only after can they enjoy regular compensation.

You do not know how to establish a baseline with the company first…
To tell you the truth, the company offers you 1200 simply because you are a newbie.

This year, if you can find a job then you are lucky. Right now the domestic and international economy is not growing, and many domestic companies have already collapsed. There is a surplus of labor, so I estimate that it will be harder to find jobs in the second half of the year, so I think people should not have high expectations regarding pay when looking for a job right now.

“Lou zhu,” you and I have the met the same treatment, but I am numb now…

It is mainly HR trash

A pile of meat, I want to commit a crime…

Today’s company also offered a shocking low wage, and it was different from what was originally promised!

The third on the left is big

I would go even if I have to pay 960 RMB every month…

If you do nothing every day except walk around in a bikini, 960 RMB is already pretty high.

Too hot outside, came in to look at picture!

Tricked by the picture into entering…

Migrant work pays more. Here, migrant work is 120 RMB per day. One month, you can calculate yourself!

Call and yell at the HR…

Only looking, nothing to say.

I want to see the front

Everyone is here just to see the picture~~~~~

Nowadays, employers all treat people like migrant workers

I did not include all the responses but 75-90% of the replies were people saying that they coming to look at the picture.

Is it hard to find a job or good salary and wage where you live? Or are you just here to look at the picture?
