What sort of financial compensation did the janissaries received for their services to the Ottoman Empire?
>>

Nothing.
There wasn't enough gold in the Roman Empire to pay everyone wages.
It's physically impossible for jobs to exist before the California gold rush and all economic history before then is fake.

well during nothing much, everything was provided by the army, food, chlothing, education etc etc. But at the end of a war and if a jannisary was old enough to go in pension most of them were given the opportunity to work in Administration of the empire or tax collector all around the empire. If I remember correctly, I suppose all of this after Soliman the Magnifique.

They're "slave soldiers" in the Islamic Tradition m8. As the property of the Sultan in a technical sense, they were one of the few people who had salaries (Stipends), their housing & food was provided for by the Sultan, they paid no taxes since they ARE the reason why taxes exist in the first place, and lived in lands that are owned by the sultan (since they are the Sultan's "property" then they could live in places owned by the Sultan.

The entire system basically was to create a professional infantry soldier/military caste that was loyal only and dependent only to the Sultan instead of some random feudal Emire like the Timarli Spahi. They've no need for financial compensation as everything is generously provided for by the Sultan's state.

Hence why the Janis were absolutely fucking mental in protecting their satus as the main professional infantry corps of the Ottoman Empire, which bode ill for military modernization.
