Interviews, jobs & sponsorshipDo ya feel lucky, Punk? Well do ya? If so, here's the place to swap the hot gen on who's sponsoring or employing, their selection criteria, and where those oh so elusive first jobs can be spotted in the wild. Watch out for the tumbleweeds...
I did the same,applied over a month ago and heard nothing...a little worried as I think that due to the fact that my licence hasn't been issued yet(they told me 4-6 weeks)they have bypassed me?!I understand they are overwhelmed with applications,so I tried to gain some time,well,didn't work...!how's the waiting time for you folks from app to interview??
I signed up at CAE early feb'12. About 3 months later I got the email where they ask to see your cv. Send cv, and they will reply with "thank you, it has been forwarded to ryanair."
A week after sending the cv, I recieved an email where they ask you to be availiable for a phone call in about a week. The phone call was to go through some details about the application. The exp dates for medical and certificate, first time passes, date of last flight and such. My detalis were fine, and they booked me in for an assessment that was 10 days from then.
Im 25, norwegian, 220 hours SEP/MEP, Beech200 MCC.
I am a CPL IR ME holder for the past 2 yrs. I am now intriguing of applying with Ryanair. Should I do the AQC with CTC in hope to get more opportunities with other airlines or should I do the MCC + JOC with OAA (CAE) who are currently recruiting for FR.
Which of the above route would you guys take in order to get an assessment consideration from FR fast?
Yes I met guys who did their MCC on an FNPT2 and are nowadays working for FR. I have met other guys who did Ryanair approved MCC and failed the assessment.
Ok leaving ryanair aside, since I believe what you are saying in that doing it with Oxford and CTC gives you equal opportunities, which MCC and JOC would you guys go for that will prepare you most for the ryanair assessment? Who has the most identical sim ?
My information is fairly old as I went for RYR assessment at the end of 2008, there were 8 of us on the day (7 OAA integrated and myself). The OAA guys told me that during the sim sessions during their MCC and JOC they just practiced RYR assessment profiles and the instructors briefed them on interview questions. They were expected to report back to OAA what sim profile they were given and what questions they were asked at interview. Not sure if they still offer it but OAA were offering a better price if you booked MCC and JOC together so as CTC AQC is closed I’d do MCC and JOC with OAA and get their instructors to put you through RYR profiles and brief you on interview questions. You might not be an integrated student but you are a customer of OAA and you should get all the support and advice that you can from them, if you get a job they’ll claim that it was all their effort on the recruitment stats section of their website. Good luck.
