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...
Recently i was contacted back by CAE for the Ryanair interview, got to the point of having a phone call with someone from CAE to confirm details. Then.. i get and email saying "unable to proceed". Ok so they dont give feedback, i assume its because i failed 3 of my written exams (passed 2nd time though) as everything else was first time passes and recently, but here is the question. 1)How long do i wait to re-apply? 2)How do i re-apply as the CAE website shows "you have applied for this course" etc therefore, will it still keep running or do i have to un-apply and re-apply again? 3)Does anyone here know if ryanair take pilots with any fails on their ATPL writtens?
Everything depends on training capacity guys. Ryanair aren't exactly short on low time FOs and never will be. Hang tight, they will be keen to get your cash; it just takes time and now that the expansion has ground to a hault, there'll be no rush. However there is still a plan to take 300 odd cadets per year. You'll be sure to hear at some stage.

Just had my assessment the other day. The problem Im facing now is that it went too smooth. Really easy questions (could answer them all without any problems) and a very very easy SIM flight (no emergencies, precision App. Etc) it seemed as they were not even trying to challenge us just like a formality they had to do because we paid for it. Anyone Else had the Same experience?
I'm sorry, but this discussion that RYR would make up jobinterviews to make money is just absurd. If they had no room for pilots and therefore took no-one in, don't you think that would be revealed quite fast? With this number of applications and interviews, a 0% success for everyone would be noticed at once and inquiries would be made. I''m not directing this personally at you CPU, but there has been a lot of negative comments bordering on conspiracy theories, that RYR is making a lot of money off hopeful young pilots. If you choose to believe this, thats up to you and good luck trying to find out who actually flew the planes into the twin-towers.
This is a company that forces cabin crew on unpaid leave during the winter months, many are thousands of miles away from home with monthly outgoings, while your favourite employer posts record profits. The pattern of this information is - they milk every revenue stream they can, and guess what, that includes pilot recruitment. Reality will hit hard if you believe otherwise.
Join with your eyes wide open and help the current pool of pilots adopt change....
I know there is a post of a similar title but I wanted to start a thread that is free of bullshit about Ryanair and how crap they are to work for etc.So I would like to keep this thread about the assessment process only, such as interview questions and sim profiles. Thanks Homerj
I have to comment that I can't understand how anyone would want to work for a company like Ryanair. They seem to have no understanding of ethical business practice, so how can any of their past, present or future employees have any pride in working for the organisation? I seem to remember that they once tried to charge disabled passengers for wheelchairs, and as I read it, treat potential employees similarly. I somehow doubt whether customers are valued any more highly. I suppose that if you can't get a job elsewhere you have to try Ryanair, but what does that do for your CV?
