It seems that now there's a pool list for next year Type Rating, that's pretty bad news ...

Does anyone know if they do interviews during August?

Interview for non cadets

Hi guys,

I am thinking of applying to the Polish FO contract to try to avoid the 5k and from what I heard I can get out of there as soon as I get upgrade, which should be with in a year. (Out meaning go to another Ryanair base in southern Europe),
Any information on how this interview goes and what they ask vs. Cadet one? I guess it's not much different.
Also considering the point of going to Ryanair sun and then swapping bases, some people advise me about it cos I might get stuck. The best info I have right now, is that is not a stand-alone company and I will be able to start bidding for a y base+ with the command contract I should be able to move. Anyone that has a good understanding in the inside. What do you guys think?
Thanks

Plane-driver, yes, some of the guys who were at the interview with me last week apparently are in the same situation, while others will start the TR earlier, in october.

Should I wait to apply? Maybe when the max will start to arrive?

I was thinking the same. A friend of mine got that email as well saying that even though he was successful he will not get any training until next year.

Does anyone know something about cadet recruitment process? Do they still recruit cadets? What about APS MCC Ryanair Mentor Programme graduates? Is it true about pilot surplus?

The pilot surplus is def true. With Boeing's news regarding the MAX today I think it certainly does not do any good. Time to look for something else than Ryanair is the hard truth

no decent alternative at all...
for this reason I prefer to wait..and apply only when the 737 max start to arrive..
too risky now..

Still don't understand what you mean..
If you pass now you're in a pool..
If you apply in one year you will be behind all people doing assessments these months (if they go on).
And also waiting months to apply without working proves you do not really need a job.

And this Also being that optimistic considering you'll pass 100%.. I was not that confident when I applied..anyway everybody is free to do what he considers the best for himself, this is why this world is still cool.

fiducioso I don't think your logic makes too much sense

anto125 is right, i mean, if you apply now and pass, you will be the in pool, if you apply later and pass, you will be also in the pool, but behind of all who passed earlier.

My advice, apply , and keep applying for other airlines, so when the moment arrives you can be lucky enough to choose which offer you want to take.
I don't know about EZY, but in their website the FO application are not open. I know WZZ is hiring, but they also have a similar pool system now. Yeah, so seem the pilot surplus is a 2019's thing.

What a ridiculous statement. There are plenty of airlines who will even pay for all of your expenses and type rating costs and give a great work environment and treat you like a human.

Ryanair is a brilliant start, but let's not lose sight of reality.

Is he? Saying Ryanair is the only way is quite a ridiculous and self-inflicting statement. For a starter, go on career.aero and you'll see there are 2 or 3 airlines currently recruiting and German is not required. They offer an equally good start to someone's career.

You don't need to offend people who have a different opinion.

Indeed. Not even on aero, there are plenty of operators out there for example, loganair, stobart, flybe, aer lingus, thomas cook ... many airlines who hire you, some cover all the type rating and some cover all the expenses too. Shop around, there are tons of opportunities.

Anyone who suggests this, and at the same time, describes their location as "world' ... really ought to have a look in the mirror ...

Hi guys!

Any news about the recruiting process? I applied two weeks ago and my application is under review.
I had some information from a pilot working for Ryanair. It has several pilots in excess and it is asking to its pilot not to fly because there is not need!
It seems that Ryanair recruiting process is in a stalled condition.

Has someone been invited for the online assessment in these days?
