Ryanair Recruitment how do you relate to this?

People use your heads.

Ryr is still planning to grow an extra 50m plus pax per year.

still got 200 max extra coming.

Unions are balloting for increasing terms, and just like past years he comes out with the same drivel. Just like past memos from 2009 etc, all to scare people. It amazes me people believe it! You are supposed to be an intelligent pilot!

That's possible. Anyway we are at bottom of the wave for hiring simply because it's the season's peak for carriers...

We should wait until beginning of September to know what are the actions they make.

I believe that Ryr will continue to grow and hire a lot of pilots in the future, the question is when. We could experience reduced hiring for weeks or months, the situation can change quickly.

Anyway only trying Ryr is not a clever option, in the hiring peak some people still failed the assessment.
For now, enjoy the summer and be ready for September!

I was at HQ just last week and half of us were successful at the assessment. I can say it was a very pleasant experience and I don't know where the interview began or ended because they were very good (both assessors and HR) at extracting your passion and knowledge. To be totally honest I had a very good time.

At all times, presentation and face to face interview, they were specific that we were only going to be called for next year courses. At no time this was hidden from us. I feel for the collegues that had type rating cancelled last minute but the companys growth plans are still solid and I don't doubt we will be getting a call back soon.

I could go on and on about exacts of the interview but it's been the same since 2017 in this thread. No changes.

Has anyone been offered an online assessment in the past 30 days or so?

Good Hawker400, did they give you any more specific dates when it may be possible to start your type?
I guess you've not been requested yet to send any docs or start any hiring procedures.

During the presentation they already informed us that they were getting candidates for Jan 2020. As it stands. Hold pool, no documents requested, expected contact October/November for courses commencing 2020.

Thanks. I wasn't aware that you need to prove proficiency every 6 months (obvious for line pilots, I'll digress for cadets) so I didn't ask. But I will say that I still believe the companys growth plan and if the proposed intake is still in the 600+ cadets sim time at HQ in Dublin is costly and very time consuming, time which will need to be spent in assessing new cadets. It's a weird necessity but I don't think the company likes this either. Especially on their dime. Simple economics.

If you look on CAE website, the program is now closed...

I hope it's only for the summer to avoid to have a lot of resumes in a waiting list, as MOL said in the video, look for end of August.

You guys are being too tragic. Hang tight, you will see it's just a few weeks and then they'll start hiring again massively. The real issue is Brexit with BoJo being an unpredictable bomb I reckon, but it won't seal the end of recruitment. The MAX problem is of limited entity for Ryanair and that will also be over - I am confident. And Ryanair has always parked some aircraft in the winter season. And they would not be the only operator to do so.
For example, at the moment they are looking for NTR pilots for Ryanair Sun with minimum 500 hours on MPA aircraft and 700 hours TT. Only a few weeks ago, the requirement for this position was more than 2200 hours total time...

Be patient, and there are still a lot of opportunities out there.

Does anyone know whether Ryanair's sim assessment is flown with autopilot or not and whether it is raw data or not?

You did the online assessment and paid for that? Because they send me today a email where you can read Ryanair is currently...
and honestly I don't want to pay money to do a test and then tell me that they are not hiring. Thanks

Question

Applied June 15th.
Cut-e June 21st.
Phone Call June 26th.
Assessment July 16th.
Course start sept 30th on FR 1913.

Some Guys were successful in the assessment and have to wait until early January for their course to start.

I would not panic about the latest news. Ryanair still made more 270 million Ä in the second quarter and i think the mess about Brexit and the Max will be sorted by the end of the year and Ryanair will still need Pilots. I could imagine, that RYR is trying to dismiss the McGinley-Pilots first, as it is easier than to get rid of Ryanair-contract-Pilots. As long as they keep inviting people, i would apply. If you might have to wait a little after a successful assessment, but they will need Pilots again soon.
I think FlyingGreek has put it well. Other Airlines suffer from smaller win margins aswell and other LCC had it even worse...

So, who else is in FR 1913 starting September 30th? There are 4 Guys from my Assessment Group, Anyone else?
Cut-e is the online assestment I guess? You pay for this and you pay for the personal interview? And then they cancelled all?

Yes. Everyone that has passed, was asked if they would like to be out on a holding list. As soon as TR-Courses resume, they will get in touch with those on the list and allocate them accordingly.
