This question is to all the people that have an HR work as background.

I failed Ryanair assessment as well as other 4 friends from my same day.

We are all very upset with their decision because, according to our feelings, we did a great Sim session as well as a (more or less) great Interview.

So we are currently thinking that their choice to don't take us was made upon psychological traits to us unknown.

We all tried to use a open body language, maintaining eyes contact with both of the assessors, smiling and using sense of humor (when proper).

I got my ATPL(A) theory with an average score of 94%, all exams passed with 1 attempt.
The same has been for all the practical exams - never failed one!
MCC/JOC done in Dublin with a 4hrs refresh 2 days before the assessment, when the instructor told me and to my partner to have flown an excellent session.

All seemed so fine and hopefully but... 35% pass rate at the day of my assessment!

I don't blame anyone of Ryanair!
They have been very kind and gentle all the day long.

I'd just like to know if they put great emphasis to someone that can look nervous/anxious during the interview as well during the sim.

I was nervous as soon as I realized to have made a mistake in answering the 2nd tech question and I saw all my future plans and my childhood dream going to hell; so I stuttered a bit as well as acting nervously.

I think that this was the main reason that didn't lead me to get the job.
Few days to prepare for the interview, huge stress in that days of trying to bring back to my memory all the ATPL subjects, the feeling to be not ready at 100% ...all these reasons, in the bowl didn't help me in having the right attitude.

What do you think?

Hi @Fabrus.

It happenned exactly the same to me a few months ago. I was deppressed after that, mainly because all the effort that I did and the huge amount of money spent preparing the assesment. I finished in the first position within my flight school class and I passed all the exams at the firsy attempt.

The worst thing isn´t know why I failed, I did a good average sim and I answered all the questions. They asked me a lot of them.

But life keeps going, and we will have more opportunities in the future, aviation is growing and will need thousand of pilots. Maybe even we may finish working in Ryanair in the future. Do you know if we can reapply again?

I have a friend who entried in Iberia, he told me that all his type rating mates (16 people) failed in the Ryanair assesment one day. So keeps working and the jet job will come.

I had more than 600 hours and 24 years.

There are far better places to start as a low hour pilot. Stay clear from Ryanair and their dodgy tax schemes

You are absolutely right rasenjie, the market for low hour pilots in Europe has been improving since early 2015, and still does. So don't give up, I'm pretty sure that it won't take you much time to find that precious first job. I got a question: did you have 24 years of age, or of experience? Because I heard a couple of times that Ryanair prefers younger cadets. If you were 24 years of age with 600 hours experience, I don't see the reason why the didn't hire you either.

For you probably nowhere, but for other ones for example easyjet, monarch,
Jetair, Ba, Thomson...

Just to mention a few. If you get some new blue sky contract than congratulations because with this contract a paycut is included and the contract is still illegal.

Hi guys, I have a question for those of you coming from an integrated course. How did you log your SPIC hours in the CV you sent to ryanair. Did you specify they were SPIC hours or did you just count them as PIC hours. Thanks in advance.

I put them down as PIC. That's how it was on my logbook so I just reflected it the same way on my CV. Hope this helps.

Unbelievable thing happened! I got an email saying they will give a call within two weeks. Waited for the phone call, really couldn't miss it! And after 3 weeks have got an email saying that:
"Good afternoon,

Thank you for your recent application for a position on the Boeing 737-800 (Ryanair) type-rating program.

Your application has been reviewed, however, we regret to inform you that your application will not proceed to the next stage in the selection process.

Due to the number of applications received for this program it is not possible for the airline (or CAE) to provide additional feedback regarding your application."

It really doesn't give a trust what they say and do, why they didn't tell that since the beginning, because I guess they had to review the application before they have send an email about phone interview. Just gives a big confusion, dissapointment. Any ideas?
