How's working for Ryanair? in the Wannabe Cabin Crew forum Posted:  26/02/2014 at 11:03
I have no idea if they send negative results, probably they do, but the truth is that Ryanair will hire anybody who speaks some English, doesn't have big tattoos and is quite young and never worked as a cabin crew before... so you don't have to worry if you got the job... I know that Emirates is hard and there is no point in flying somewhere for open day but there might be some close to you. And what about other airlines? Have you tried Easyjet in Malpensa?

How's working for Ryanair? in the Wannabe Cabin Crew forum Posted:  21/02/2014 at 16:52
You're a smart person with very good English, please take my advise and use Ryanair as the last possible option. Try Etihad, Emirates, the charter airlines in Italy and if nothing works out and you are 100% sure that you want to fly, then go for it. But not before you try at least 10 open days and nothing works out. Here in Central Europe there is an agency called Meccti that recruits to Middle East countries, for airlines such as Gulf Air, Nas Air, Air Arabia, Oman Air and the chances of getting a job is high, they take 20-40 people in one assessment. My advise would be to start there, not with Ryanair... Or try Easyjet in Malpensa... I can't advise you enough about jobs in Italy but do a proper research and apply to as many as possible.
Ryanair is hard... the money is bad, I was based in UK and on some months we got as little as 650 pounds... and I heard from my colleague that in other bases it's even worse for juniors. It's getting worse and worse there, now the juniors have to pay taxes in two countries if they work in Italy for example. When you still need to pay your training loan, you'll be lucky to earn 1000 eur after the loan deduction in summer and much less in winter. After you pay the loan it becomes better and then when you get Ryanair contract the money becomes fine and for supervisors the money is quite good, but it might take a few years of struggling to start earning normal salary.
Roster... 5 days on, 3 days off, 5 days on, 2 days off... out of those 5 some are standbys, in summer 1 or 0, in winter even 3 or 4... so you get stuck at home and earn no money. But now they force people to take a few months unpaid leave too. The hours: about 90 in summer (you might thinks it's not much compared to normal 160 hrs a week job, but it is a lot!), around 50 in winter, but it can be much less.
Taxes... I was based in UK, so I cant say much about Irish contract, we had UK contracts...
Its much HARDER job than with other airlines. The amount of crap that you have to sell is unbelievable, you're like a little robot running down and up the cabin. Also earlies are tough, imagine 5 times in a row getting up at 3 am and working for several hours... its a real killer. I know in other airlines you get that too but the roster is more diverse and hardly ever you'd have to do it 5 days in a row. Also you often do 4 flights a day which is very very rare in most of airlines. And you don't get the cleaners, you have to clean the plane yourself, which works like this only in low cost airlines.
Yes, a lot of people quit and I would say that people who stay are usually Spanish/Portuguese or very young people with no education, the people who because of difficult situation in their own country or no other experience and education have no other options (I know maybe people will get angry for me saying it, but it's truth in most of cases) Some people stay because they hope for a transfer to a nice base but it might take a few years, not 1 year as they promise.
The atmosphere in the company is bad, lots of bullying about sales, the supervisors are encouraged to write bad reports about juniors to keep their jobs. For me it was hell. But some bases might be better or you might be lucky to work with nicer people. Or you might have really strong personality and people will know it's not worth to report you coz you will fight back. But otherwise... I saw people crying in this job.
Do I appreciate it as experience on my CV? It helped me to get a job with a charter airline in my country and my next job as well, but my dream was to fly for Emirates and Etihad and 3 years since I started flying for Ryanair and it still didnt manage to make my dream come true. So yes, it helps but from the other side on each Emirates open day you will see that people with experience fail and people without get the job, the experience might be 100% important if you will apply for a job where they look for boeing 737 experienced crew with licence/attestation but 30% important if you go for Emirates, British Airways and so on...
Drug tests happen very very rarely, I worked in Ryanair for 1,5 year and in this time only two crews so 8 people out of 150 had a random drug test. But I heard about people getting fired in other bases after drug test. I would say that even if it's very very rare you keep in your mind that it might happen and you will start avoiding smoking marijuana or being with smokers...
I hope that helps and you will decide to try all the other options because in my opinion it's not worth it. It helped me to get my next job but if I had known about aviation back then as much as I know now I would certainly have applied to all charter airlines in my country instead of moving to a random country to work for a salary worse than a cleaner gets.

Photos for Emirates OD in the Middle East Airlines Forum forum Posted:  21/02/2014 at 15:49
Dear future colleagues,

Tomorrow morning I will be attending Emirates Open Day. My life is currently in big chaos and I totally forgot to do my photographs.

Do you think that I can go to an Open Day only with my CV and still pass it? Will not having photos be a huge minus?

Thanks in advance
