Hi my husband has an interview with Cathy Pacific in January and we hoped someone could offer some help on salary needed for a comfortable lifestyle for two adults with no kids. We dont know if we get housing allowance or medical yet we wont know till the interview.
We enjoy travel and eating out any ideas on the cost of a decent place to live would be appreciated.

Thanks

Barbara

I am fairly ignorant on what constitutes a good wage here, but I strongly recommend you get a housing allowance and education allowance if you have children - these are both very expensive, especially if you want to live in a nice area (and housing isn't much cheaper in the not-so-great areas, anyway). Also, I recommend a visit to Hong Kong to get a feel for the place, perhaps with a Cathay representative to show you around - I would be very surprised if such a major employer does not have an orientation programme.
Good luck.
Gillian

Ah - I am a blind bat - just spotted the "no kids" bit, in which case, your options are more open. Of course, you still need housing allowance and medical and dental should be provided automatically (I know this from my Cathay friends who used to live here). Medical insurance is important here, as private fees can mount very quickly.

Hi There,

I see this message was posted over a year ago, but I would like to know if you did end up moving for the job ? My Fiance and I just got back from his Cathay interview in HK this week and he got the job, we just found out ! So I am excited and looking to know how things are going for you there if you did get it as well. We have some other friends there and spent 10 days in total there this past trip so I have a pretty good handle on things, but might have a few questions .......
