This forum helped me a lot to get job at Ryanair,so I will leave my feedback.
May 6,I sent application.
May 7,got invitation for online assessment.
May 10,I did online assessment
May 13,got positive email.
May 14,got call from CAE.
May 28, interview+sim.

We started at 08:00 at Ryanair head office in Dublin.
1.Briefing about interview,sim.
2.We got divided in 4 pairs,737 MCc+non 737 MCC.
3.I was last to go for interview and sim,we waited almost 8 hours.
4.Interview questions.Why so many retakes at ATPL Theory (I got 5 retakes in total),What is thunderstorm,what is cold front,why thunderstorm is dangerous to aircraft,started to ask questions about my old aircrafts,c152,c172,c182,pa28,asked about difference between carb and injection,do we need to use carb heat today(it was +14 outside),at what alt we can expect freezing level,explain how hydraulic system works.HR questions,why Ryanair,why decided become a pilot,why not AirBaltic(my local airline),why Sky4u(MCC course),why not APS MCC,tell about my training, asked me,do I have any questions.
5.Sim, departure from liverpule SID, runway 27, after SID,climb,turns,decent, intercept VOR,ATC call,severe thunderstorm at London, airport closed,dodar,we decided go back,nits,radar vectors,ILS approach.Same for second pilot.
From 8 guys,3 got job.
Few advice,don't don't APS MCC,we had 2 guys with it, both failed.
Don't stress at interview and sim, otherwise you not gona get possitive result.

Thanks for the great info and help.

With regards to the Theoretical questions asked in the Interview is there a specific book or question manual someone can recommend to me so I can prepare well for the interview?

I completed my ATPL's almost 2 years ago so my knowledge is rusty to say the least.

Worst book ever.
I found a serious mistake in the first question and dumped it directly to the trash

What would you recommend to prepare for the Technical side of the interview if not the Ace Pilot book

This forum. All the answers you need are here.
The Ace is good for reference if you are aware that answers can be mistaken, but I think it is too long and you would be losing time. It is a a good recap of the ATPL nevertheless.

ACE is the book to read, definitely, but at the assessment keep your questions simple.

Hello,

I did apply on Tuesday (4th of June). The next day I received an email saying "Your Application is under review"! But still no invitation for the online assessment...
-Is it normal? (I recently reed that it was more or less 24h)!
-When should I assume that I'm not suitable for the airline?

Thanks,

Oscar748

Hey guys. I was reading through this thread and saw some old posts about ATPL requirements - only one failed attempt and 88% average score. What is the situation like nowadays?

You should be OK. I have also failed one subject and my averages result was 91%. That day in Dublin, there was one student pilot who failed multiple times and he was also invited to Dublin.
