#2  Interview experience with Ryanair  Posted 16/08/2017 at 14:38
Good afternoon, I was thinking that sharing my experience could be useful for someone and I decided to write a post here.
A few days ago I have been to an assessment day held by Crewlink, a branch of Ryanair that focuses in CC hiring, training and employment. Basically it lasted for about 8 hours since there has been a delay and it started after the arranged time. At first there's a registration procedure that consists in checking whether or not the candidates have their required documents and are not below the age of 18. After that there has been a brief introduction about the airline and why they hire people using a sister company (because the airline itself has loads of things to do according to them), following that there has been a very easy (but very selective) English test that included writing a 12 lines long text about a topic they asked (BEWARE: you have to carefully read the question and avoid leaving the topic they ask otherwise you fail even if your level of English is pretty good) and a 10 multiple choice exercise where one has to select the right word out of four that complete a sentence; the test will be checked beginning from the second part that has to have at least 7 out of 10 correct answers otherwise you will fail the test (and the text will be neglected). After that there has been a one hour long presentation about the working conditions of a CC (salary ranges between 900 and 1400 euros, max 900 yearly hours of flying, you must be willing to relocate to wherever they want and you can ask for a base (airport) transfer after a year of service, the uniform has to be paid 30€/month for the first year and 400€ will be given back on the second year, and so on and so forth). During the final CC day the one-to-one interview will be held (the interviewer has been the same person that made the presentation in my case), it lasts theoretically for more or less 15 minutes and only people who successfully completed the English test can go through it (60% of people passed on that day). There has just been one question to which you have to provide a "complex" answer which is "Why do you want to be a cabin crew?" and other minor questions have been "Are you able to swim?", "Are you willing to start the training on the [date/month/location]?". Overall my experience has been positive, I hope this helped you and if you have any other questions feel free to send me a private message.

Today I had an interview with RyanAir.... it was really successful until they asked me if I have any visible tattoos. I told them I have two! One on my back and the other on my wrist which can be mostly covered with a watch and not seeable in a long
Sleeved shirt. They asked to see the tattoo and told me I could not fly with them and sent me home. I was successful in all areas but turned away because of my tattoo.... so unfair. Do other airlines have the same policy? Coz I really want to experience life as cabin crew.

Yes, all airlines follow the same policy - no visible tattoos. If the one on your back is not visible and the one on your wrist is fully covered by a watch you may have a chance with some airlines but if you really wish to become cabin crew it may be worth considering tattoo removal.

I did also my AD for Ryanair last month, was the same....exactly the same as your.

I did very good on the test, and on the interview.....even the recruiter told me to get the missing douments already, so when they send me the email with the confirmation i'll have it.
But.....unfortunately the email said i didn't pass....untill now i'm trying to understand what happened.

Just a tip...keep calm in the AD, Is easy, just keep calm and everything will be fine!

good luck for all!

Hi, the only airline i know which allows tattoos is Small Planet Airlines. You are allowed them as long as not on face or neck. Try them.
