I think Ryanair should somehow regulate the number of applications.

If I read it correctly there are thousands of applications and about 10-20/month are being called for assessment.

I don't know what's the point in keeping the application open for new pilots when there are far too many applicants already.

Anyways, there are many of us waiting for a few months already so 3 weeks is not that much i think.

Good luck

The age debate for RYR.

Is this proof?

Made nearly 2 identical profiles, and applied with CAE, the first one some time ago (9 weeks ago), the other one 5 days ago.
On the second one I actually genuinely made a typo error of 79 instead of 69!

Today I received email requesting my CV to be sent to RYR. I sent my CV, went on later to check my profile, and discovered the error.

I am now very curious to see what the response will be, however I doubt it will be a positive reply! If only I was 10 years younger!

You are not guaranteed an interview because of them requesting a CV to be sent.
Your new application could be "on top of the pile" and therefore be picked.

Or it could just be random.

Anyway good luck with your applications.

3 weeks, months?
I waited 2,5 years for an invite. So yeah RYR should not be your last resort as they invite about 7-8 a week which is 28-32 a month.

Obviously there are more applicants than they invite so there is the answer for all future questions about getting invited.

To be honest people seeing RYR as last resort, are wrong for the job.

I see it as the best job to get for a low houred pilot, and I might not agree with all of RYR, it does not seem to bad what they offer inexperienced pilots.

Got reply today, as I had highlighted to CAE afterwards about the mistake, it was very strange the way they seemed to distance themselves away from this point.

My 2-pence worth, they have an age discriminating policy, as there was nothing in my CV that would be less worth then any mates of mine's CV's.
Getting interview based on CV should have be the least of the problems, of course they could have done the full Monty of charades, and made me attend the interview and assessment and made me pay the assessment fee.
At least we could have been less inclined to say they was age discriminating. I think their response today to proves the point, although not easy to prove, that is how it is!

They are probably not the only company that acts like this, however if the company requires a certain amount of flying experience, fair enough, Ryanair does not require above the minimum amount, so there should be no difference!

@veggy

Mate, I have been to the assessment on 31 of march and have no answer yet. If you listened correctly to the HR-guy he said if you hear something in 5 days the chance is that you've failed. After that you'll here something between 10-14 days and the chance if bigger that you've made it.

Not implying anything, I could still fail of course but just to point out that you have to first wait 14 days and than see whan happens
Just relax and keep an eye out for your bloodpressure

@ OTB

I will post my review (already wrote one in Dutch so will translate it for you guys of course) when I get a result (positive or negative)

Regards

re from fredgrav

Hi Veggy432,
Yep I think I know you. I was on 6th April assessment too, but haven't got any news yet! We all exchanged our private contacts that day, but you had already gone away at that point. Please send me a PM, should you like to catch up on things ...

Best,
Fred

Hi Guys,

It took 4 weeks for them to get back to me with the good news. It does vary a lot. Some people find out the next day or the few days after the assessment or like me, a few weeks.

Hi On the brakes,
if you haven't attended the assessment yet, the only thing I feel worth to tell you is ... have a thorough look on the thread "Ryanair Interview and Sim Assessment (merged)" and indeed do your best to prepare. Once you get there, I can bet you anything that You will be more than surprised on how good, kind and cheerful the whole Ryanair' staff is. So no reason to panic !

Best of luck,
fredgrav

OK I'll post the question here

I was on the assessment on 31 of march. It's 2 weeks now so I was wondering if anyone heard something who was at Stansted on this date?

Cheers

sellect:

The way CAE responded and suddenly stopped responding, it was very clear, when they found out my real age, my CV went into the bin, no other reason.

I know several pilots passed 35, never had a chance of an interview - what does that tell you?

However there are ways to find out these things, and in the process of this now trough other channels, as if this is the case, it would be breach of European law. There is actually a method to get to the bottom of this, which I will not divulge on these forums.

You keep your own naive opinion for yourself, and believe the world is all red and white, and everything is so nice and beautiful. Fact it is not, I know several guys who been to to assessment, I have seen their CV, and know their backgrounds. Some have fails on ATPL's or failed skills tests, still they got an interview, some even got employment!

The message CAE told me by email, my CV had been reviewed, and was just waiting for approval by Ryanair, guess what?

No approval!

Here is my conundrum, what purpose would it serve Ryanair to discriminate on age? As firstly most of they pilots are gone after few years anyway, secondly the pilots themselves have to pay for all their own training!

The truth is out there!
