Yeah that's what they are actually doing. They aren't paying for it. My friends are actually renting AirBnB and are getting nothing back.

Wake up guys.

You are obviously annoyed that they wouldn't take you and I can understand that, but you are not stating the truth that's a fact! Check potatoflying's post

Ok ok, fair enough
If Ryanair if fine for you guys, go for it, believe what you want; it's your career, your money, your choice. We won't make the decision for you.
I know people on both side, so it is hard to tell which one tell the truth. It's always the one complaining who wrote the most on Pprunes, over the years, it never seems to change.

Exactly! There are always 2 sides to every story!

I am actually lucky. Got a job at another 737 operator with everything provided: few private insurances, transport paid for, uniform provided (more than 1!), medicals paid for, good per diems and on top of that also a hefty LoL. And my employer is not the only one treating their staff properly.

But I have got a few friends who joined and are already plotting their way out as soon as their bond is over.

Just one thing I don't understand. You've got a great job flying 737 and rather than enjoy life, travel the world, dine with your girlfriend/wife/boyfriend, play golf, whatever you like doing... you spend your time on PPRuNe Wannabes Forum bashing Ryanair for days on end?

I did not get the job maybe because my personality doesn't fit Ryanair according to their recruiters. Or maybe something else.

You won't learn to fly a 737 in a couple of hours and assessors know that 99% of the candidates have never flown one.
PS. Flying the 737 sim at Ryanair is a piece of cake. So easy and stable.
And 5months ago you were trying to pass Ryanair assessment [post #8093], now you're warning everybody against the company based on something you've heard from your friends? We appreciate your care, but it just doesn't add up mate.

Guys, this discussion has been going for far too long. This thread is about the assessment. There's plenty of people here stressing their asses out to prepare for the interview (and if they are preparing for it they are probably aware of the working conditions and are happy to continue regardless), they don't want to waste more time and energy having to read through all theses posts in order to maybe find precious tips for the assessment in the middle of it (in fact, it's just gonna make them stress even more). I'm sure there are numerous threads here where you can discuss the working conditions at Ryanair in more detail. I appreciate all your inputs, but with all due respect I think most people here are more concerned about actually getting a job than having to pay for a hotel. Let them prepare for the assessment in tranquility, they'll have time to worry about the conditions once they're successful at the assessment (no harm in saying 'no' to them if you end up realizing RYR isn't your cup of tea...).

Hi guys, thanks for all the great info that you have submitted here. Do you know if Ryanair is really not calling to people who have failed once or more in the ATPL?
Thanks in advance!

Why does it not add up? It is true I applied and went to the assessment which I did not pass. But how is that related to the terms and conditions of Ryanair and other operators? I am just saying that people shouldn't focus too much on Ryanair. Sure, I would say if you are looking at building hours and fly on a brand new jet then it would be a good job for this purpose, better than where I am now because we don't fly as much given the type of operation, but proceed with caution, eyes wide open and be ready to what has already been posted in the previous posts.

And I talked about benefits: I can confirm that my employer is not the only one looking after its pilots, there are more out there who are actively recruiting pilots. Even Eurowings have improved their terms.

And I have never said Ryanair is an employer to avoid working for. There's no bashing. You are interpreting my posts your own way.

Banana Joe, get off this thread and leave people alone. You clearly haven't a clue and you are wasting everyone's time. My time for you is over.

Hi there, folks.

Does anyone know if itīs possible to find the documentation that FR sends before the sim assessment online? Just to take a look at the speeds/procedures they use and practice at home.

Thank you! Regards.
