Ryan Air Telephone Interview

Hi All,

I'm hoping for a call Telephone Interview call from Ryan Air. I've heard they are now asking ATPL questions. If anyone has had one of these recently and remembers any of the Questions I'd be eternally grateful.

Did well on the ATPL's but not sure what could be asked.

Any info or comments welcomed. Safe Flying Everyone.

I was asked about the reason I got into flying, a mate was asked what the CAT III a minima were so I guess its pot luck on this one.

Why would you have to know about the CAT III minimas on a phone interview with FR?

Heard Ryanair took out the nav instruments to save weight, pilots are free to bring their own handheld GPS though

Will the idiots who have nothing constructive to say please go play with your toys, or go back to your kindergarden.

Ryanair telephone interviews are part of the selection process, ignore that fact at your own risk.

I've heard from a few who have done it, and it seems to be basic questions that you would have researched yourself anyway. Like how many fr bases/pilots/planes, whats a ndb/vor, how does tcas work, how does the AI work...
It's not something to stress about if you've prep'd yourself for the tech interview.
They do it now because they can. Every Tom, Dick and Harry are applying to them. Might as well be choosy!

I literally got asked:
  1. Why do you want to work for us?
  2. Why did you partial your IR?
  3. What is your Credit Card Number?

For Balhambob

I submitted my CV to RyanAir via CAE over four weeks ago but have heard nothing.

Do you happen to know if my age at 33 is a selection factor?

Dr. Cmvidini

I am in the same situation as you, I send 1 month ago my CV to a person from CAE who demanded it. But I haven´t received any call yet.

Hope to hear something...

Guy's; please do not shoot me down - I promise I have no agenda with my question.

Do RYR / BRK guarantee any number of hours annually?

If not, is it not possible that they can recruit an infinite number of new hires to 'support' their business in these challenging times.

Working / Earning 10 hours a month isn't going to be funny if you have a loan to feed.

What are your thoughts?

In my personal experience you do get a telephone call but there is no technical element to it. You might expect basic questions about your CV. For others, things may be different.

Does that help? Probably not.

As for CAE, Amsterdam and OAA, Stockholm: Not uncommon to hear nothing despite chasing them. Again, my personal experience.

There is no garantee of hours, so effectively yes they can just allocate leave for you.

With the aircraft deliveries I would imagin they would need someone to fly them and cadets are cheaper so why not use them?
