While on the other hand, they cancel so many flights because of pilot shortage.
Many airlines use online tests including Easyjet & AerLingus, so RYR wouldn't be the first to use those tests to filter people out

What about DLR tests? Do you not have to pay €200.00?

Could you tell me where are the “plenty of opportunity elsewhere”? Ryanair is not the best airline in the business but is miles away from being the worst. For new guys fresh out of school the options to fly on a jet are really short: wizzair (shitty wages), easyjet (type rating price absurd), pay per flight schemes, etc.
Ryanair is improving their contracts and giving extra bonus for guys who want to become instructors, also there aren’t broker contractors anymore, every new cadet signs a ryanair contract. It is a good airline to build experience and hours before apply to a major one.

Stick pusher - you wont be the only one from now on as they cant continue the broken business model, and no one to train new guys as all senior people are leaving. Its a blessing in disguise really, although it doesn't seem that way for now when your rejected. You have had a lucky break my friend, better employers are there for you. As said, my advice - delete any applications, go elsewhere and let it naturally wither and die, like it should. If it was an animal, you would put it down now.

It is not the case of any airline I am aware that makes you pay for it. Same with Interpersonal.

Turkish even cover travel and accommodation costs. So do SunExpress.

Are you serious?

What about Eurowings? DHL? ASL Airlines? Tui Fly Belgium at the moment? LOT are also recruiting and they don't require you to know the local language. Volotea might start again in September. Not to speak about the smallish operator in the GA world like sky diving, aerial survey, maybe even become a flight instructor if you think you're cut for it and so on.

It seems you aren't doing your homework hard enough.

I applied for Eurowings and Dhl and only received one email informing me they are reviewing my cv and it was 9 or 10 months ago. I’ve send my cv to almost any suitable jet airline and zero feedback except from ryanair. Ga is not my kind of thing. Right now i’m happy working for ryanair so i can say i know what i’m talking about

Good Afternoon Folks,

Have seen most people on this forum state that when they receive the email saying they shall get a call “within 14 days” they normally only have to wait around in 1/2 or 3 days. I’ve been waiting a week now and wondered if anyone has experienced similar? (Just in case this is abnormal) Also, if the wait continues and gets to the end of the timescale, is there any recommendations to ensure you get the call?

Thanks and all the best!

They called me 2 weeks after I received that email. Don't worry about it.
