salaryhow much do you earn? We ask a Dutch person every week. Today: Jennifer (36) works 36 hours a week as a surgical assistant.
What do you earn?
,, I am now net 3000 euros. The total is 4220 euros.
Happy with – cheerful who?
I am definitely happy with my salary. That’s why I worked Maar. Now I am starting to earn €300 less net, and I no longer have a rental car with a fuel card and mileage.”
You lost a lot, so what made you choose the permanent contract?
Now I really belong to a team. If you work for a lending agency, you come to fill in the blanks. Your colleagues know that you earn more. I felt like I was looked down upon because of it. I earned more, but also had a lot of travel time. On one occasion I had to go from Den Bosch to Utrecht or Nijmegen, and in exceptional cases also far away. Then you sit in the car for a long time. I prefer to spend this time in my social contacts. I really feel at home in the hospital where I work now. This gives peace of mind.”
What are your secondary employment terms?
“I get vacation pay and year-end bonus. Travel costs are minimal. I get paid 86 euros a month. Once a year I get net 900 euros. I spend 250 euros a month on gasoline, so the costs are not fully covered.”
Have you negotiated your salary?
Yes, I was in step 9 and went to number 10. That is a total of 50 or 100 euros per month. Not much, but still… You’ve worked in many different hospitals and you learn a lot from that. You get a welcome bonus at Randstad, but unfortunately they don’t have that at Brabant.”
Was this the first time you negotiated?
“That’s right, I’ve never dared to do that before. Through experience, I now dare say ‘I’m a good OR helper.'”
Do you know what your colleagues earn?
,,Around. It’s not discussed in breaks, but you know what stage everyone is in.”
How do you see your future?
, I think in the future – in five to ten years I will be doing a management course. Then I will increase my salary. I think it’s quite a challenge to be able to manage a team. Now I love being in the workplace, it’s the processes that give me satisfaction.”
