Beware all, huge huge delays after your type rating. Lads that started their tr in may I am seeing with safety pilot still to receive a pay cheque. If you pass your tr this week, your looking at march for starting line training. You can't even get a job else where as they give you short notice to go back in the sims each week to keep current, which of course, can be ema, dub, STN, ams,at your own costs imagine.

Sunji, If we drop the kindergarten rhetoric for a moment, I hope you can see that there are actually people here who have walked the walk who are just trying to give you a heads up. By all means, If you want to join Ryanair fine, but as fellow colleagues it is our duty to try and provide the best possible information available.

Who knows. If the Ryr guys actually get a CLA together, It just might be a fantastic workplace in the future. All we are saying is; Watch out for yourselves, plan for a though period in your life and make sure you get a realistic picture of what you can expect. I think most people are optimists when they are presented with a job offering with the company. But just having finished flight school it can be very hard to feel the financial burden that you are about to take on. 4-6 or more months of only paying out of pocket can be a mental challenge and I have seen so many people go from being young enthusiastic pilots, to bitter 1-2 year FO's who are already saying things like: "I'm not sure I am actually going to be doing this in 30 years". It does not have to be that way. Not at all!

Anyways, you get the idea. Best of luck in the future!

I do not fly for...I don't want to fly for and I don't fly with Ryanair even as a pax seen the incredible amounts of immature wannabees spending their parents money populating their cockpits . I think is time to implement the FAA like 1500 hours before any commercial flying rule...before is too late.

Got the job also, starting early next year.

Thank you everyone who posted feedback about selection.

Selection is really straight forward and as mentionned on previous feedback.

Also to everyone motivated about RYR, just do it, don't listen messages of anger.
You need to get a foot to aviation and build up hours.

would you be so kind and point me to airlines in Europe that will actually take on 200 hour cadets? Aerlingus just did their recruitment drive, 4000 applicants on 100 positions, many many of those 4000 guys with 1000+ hours on type.. paints a picture, doesn't it? Easyjet wont look at you if you're modular, Wizz is interested in Easterneuropeans for their bases, many other carriers looking at local language speakers only. If English is your only language or you are coming from a country that doesn't have a strong local airline, you are pretty much . I'd say, if you can afford Ryanair, go for it..

EasyJet are actually taking modular guys now for the first time I can remember - a sign of the positive changes.
As mentioned previously I personally know 200 hr guys that have got jobs at Norwegian, cityjet, cityflyer, jet2, Flybe and dhl

Anyone failed the first interview and reapplied for the second time please?

Did you pass the second interview?
Did you let them know that you have already failed the 1st interview?

Hi lisa95,

I think you can reapply 6 months later after not passing the 1st time.
When did you failed the interview? Do not desperate, just keep on studying, flying if possible and try other airlines,...you know its not the end of the world.

Kind regards

Wizz focusing on eastern euros? The airline is currently being flooded by French and Italians and not to mention, lots of Brits now!

If you are a 200 hour cadet waiting for the call up, you are doing it wrong, GO to their open day, that they put effort into organising on a regular basis.
You show them you are interested with a bit more than a "submit" key on the web and they'll take you seriously enough to FLY you out to their training centre at their expense. Or you could pay the Irish group for the privilege of your attendance.

I worked my ugly little bum off to get in this industry, years and years of nothing from the big boys until 5 different invitations in the space of a month, times have changed and you have a choice to get out there and do something about it or you can sit back, relax and watch the others grab the available positions.

You need at least 300 hour for Wizz Air. Anything that allows to log hours is good. Then absolutely attend their open days, they need pilots.

Yes you do have a choice, all you have to say is no and walk away. There are literally lots of jobs out there. Why do you think Ryanair are having crew issues? I don't know how long you've been in aviation for but if you look back you'll notice that the employment prospect this year was very positive.

Believe it or not many people actually do turn jobs down because the T&C are bad. A while back while I was a flight instructor I went to the Globe Air interview. At the interview stage they told us that the salary was almost 30K per year. I passed the interview and when they sent me the contract the salary was 1850 per month gross and the rest was made up of different bonuses at the discretion of the company, plus I had to pay 24k for the type rating and stay there for minimum 3 years. I told them no thanks and continued to work as a flight instructor until few months later when I got a great job, well paid and most important not having to pay for anything and treated like a human being. A couple of years ago I turned down another job that is not even worth mentioning.

I also applied for Ryanair when I finished my training, back then they were literally the only choice, shortly after the financial crises. For some reason unknown to me they never called me but I continued to update my application for years to see if they are ever going to call me. This summer around July they sent me an email asking me if I am still interested in working for them, I replied yes. Then a couple of weeks after that they sent me the phone email and then called me, on the phone I made my demands regarding the type of contract, base and salary. They said is not possible and didn't invite me to the interview. It was of great satisfaction to me doing that.

Well done to all of you passing selection lately. A huge piece of advice.

Every new starter must join the local pilot association . There is a huge battle at the moment and the plight of cadets is a big talking point, we are trying to make things better for you all.
This is probably the last time we have this opportunity at Ryanair, help it become the great airline it should be.

Read the posts above, these guys would sell their mother for an underpaid job in this company, they won't bother.
They will probably be the ones to fly in their days off and out of the base to cover for the strikes of the other pilots, so they can make hours and get out to something better, as they say. Until there will be nothing better around.
