Hi, just a quick one... does anyone know of the preferred method Ryanair use for letting people know if they have passed an assessment? Be it positive or negative?

If it's negative they will send you an email... If its positive they will phone you, may ask you another HR question though over the phone before saying you have been accepted, but I think by that time you are in already. They asked me a few questions on the phone before saying I had passed the assessment. Good luck to you!

If negative they will email you. If positive they will give you a call but it will usually take at least a weak to get the call. I think the email comes within days after, but I'm not sure. Of course this is a generalization, probably not true for every case....

You can re-apply after twelve months of your original assessment, apparently it's not too uncommon either!

What if there's no decision in over two weeks?

Also, any questions you may remember from the Technical and HR side would be great.

I know there are posts but your the most recent.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Happy Flying.

I think one of the first questions is... do you intend joining BALPA?

On PPJN it says that Ryanairs policy is not to Re-Hire, what exactly does this mean? I know that PPJN is not FACT necessarily. But to pay 30K for a TR, get paid next to F all on a type that is getting more and more pointless to have on your licence and then just get slung out? You'd have to be crazy......How long is the contract on offer, offered for? Has anyone not been re-hired from it?

Beak what ppjn refers to is that if you leave for another company but then for whatever reason try to return to Ryanair its unlikely you will get back into Ryanair (although in some cases it has happened).

The Beak, I'm reading differing opinions on Brookfield Vs RyanAir Contracts. Would you happen to know the differences/preference please? In short, how long would the Brookfield contract be for upon completion and what is the pay scale.

Thanks again.

I don't fly for Ryanair so I couldn't give you a definitive answer. Having read what I read on PPJN, I had a look on the Ryanair cadets scheme through the Oxford TRTO. Within there it says:

Successful candidates are then offered an opportunity to fly for Ryanair on a full time basis following successful completion of the B737-800 type rating course.
Full time does not mean permanant though. So beware.

As I understand Brookfield contracts are the only contracts on offer to cadets starting right now. So again, beware. Correct me if I am wrong on that one though.

I'd be interested to hear how long a contract people are actually offered with the Brookfield contract? Is it a rolling 6 or 12 month contract? Or does it not need any renewal?

I don't suppose it really matters, if they want you to go, they'll just work you so little that you can't afford to stay. I am sure it hasn't happened yet but standby......

I hear that Ryanair are now laying off Brookfield pilots at the end of their 6 month contracts, coincidentally when they have to pay them more! surprise surprise.

Best thing that FR has ever done if true. It may stop all these little wannabe's prostituting themselves and ruining the industry for all the decent people.
