I see on the Ryanair recruitment page that the type rating upfront cost is now raised to Ä10,000 and the bond has dropped from 5 years to 4 years. Any thoughts on the logic of this move?

Supply and demand?
On the plus side I bet recruitment will open up soon.

Lauda isn't mandatory as I understand. Bond is less time too.

It's a sign that, as predicted, recruitment is about to pick up again. If the MAX issue will also be sorted out everything will resume to normal ops in Europe, not just Ryanair.

Heard they started sending out invites for online assessment.
Anybody know if they recorded questions are still the same ?

Hi guys, long time observer on this forum, 1st time poster. Recent fATPL graduate from an integrated school and desperate job seeker!

So I sent a speculative application to Ryanair a while ago and didnít expect any reply considering I knew of people from my school that were offered jobs, paid the 5k bond (now 10k) and had it refunded and told not to expect a TR start date until the end of 2020!

However I received an email today from CAE inviting me to do an online assessment.

Firstly I was wondering if anyone had any credible info regarding them opening up their doors again? Are they speculatively opening up the process in anticipation for the 737 max coming back or are they actively hiring again?

Although positive news, I was just a little confused as I thought they had masses of people in the pipeline as well as threatening redundancies.

On a side note, does anyone have any tips on what to expect and how to prepare for the online assessment? Feel free to direct me to another thread if Iíve missed it.

thanks

Assessment Email

I also got the email through this morning. You have to pay the Ä55 fee up-front. Email states it takes around 1hr 45mins to complete. "There are competency modules, technical questions, and a video interview."

When did you apply? I applied in early July, when the scheme was still 5k, I wonder whether I need to apply again to be considered

This is great news, hopefully a good sign for the whole industry and the MAX.

I'm a VA graduate which I assume takes priority being a Ryanair mentored scheme. I applied in early August.

Not following you completely. So you went through the mentored programme at VA?

I had presumed if you were a mentored cadet you bypassed the HR bit and went straight into the sim assessment day.

Correct, those cadets on the mentored programme completed the online assessment before the APS MCC. Next step is assessment day.

base offers

Hi all,

I've just been invited to do the online assessments for the cadet type rating programme (10k upfront cost). Does anyone know at what point Ryanair makes a base offer on this scheme? Before or after paying the 10k and doing the type rating?

Cheers

If you do a MCC Ryanair APS you bypass the online assessment and have a guaranteed HQ assessment day along with the normal guys. SIM + HR.

Odd that a mentored cadet is having to do the Ä55 online test. Sounds like a worse deal than APS MCC.

He/She is obviously not Mentored otherwise he wouldn't have had to do the online test. My friend who completed the mentored scheme didn't have to do cut-e after his Ryanair mentored APS

I think you might be getting confused cause people were told the beginning of 2020 and not the end so it makes sense for them to get people ready for assessments

I did it yesterday. The aptitude tests arenít too bad, there are recommended practice sites mentioned earlier in this thread where you can practice them, I didnít as didnít want to pay, but they werenít that difficult anyway. The technical quiz was however hard, I knew less than half of the answers, probably wouldnít have been too bad if ATPLís were fresh in my mind though. Then 3 video questions, career goals as a Ryanair pilot? Why Ryanair? Strengths/weaknesses?

Now that several people are being asked to complete online assessments, are there any hold pool guys that have been given any updates or TR start dates?
