    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ryanair in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was applying for a management position at their head quarters in Dublin. I had a phone interview with HR lady a few weeks later (even though I made myself available while abroad on holiday). I was also expecting the hiring manager to be in the call who never showed up, which I ended up answering generic basic questions rather than ones pertaining to the job, team structure etc.
    A few days later, I was invited to face to face interview with the hiring manager. They were nice enough to fly me from Manchester to Dublin (at their cost) and the logistics were a smooth process. The interview was straight forward. General HR and competency based questions, but I realised that either 1) Management had no idea what kind of candidate they wanted to hire its 2) They were also trying to run veggie they could walk. RyanAir hadn't fixed very basic issues and processes but has lofty goals based on market buzzwords and want to jump in on it (without clearly understanding, it having infrastructure to sort) it.

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ryanair in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    One on sight technical multiple choice exam. Pretty normal Java core questions, some of them tricky. Those were about the use of data structures, equals and hash code, threads. A couple of Spring as well.
    Second technical interview with one of the Java Senior developers. Really nice guy, again ping pong of technical questions on Java core, then some about Spring AOP, Maven, git. Nothing really complicated.

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpected one, what is the difference between SVN and GIT. Is not that I didn't know the answer, but my mind went blank.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Didn't offered what I was asking for. Also, it seemed to me by the interview with HR they work under pressure and change the requirements during the Sprint.

    • Maybe for me the most difficult question was if I am flexible to be allocated on the base they will choose. In the interview form of I don't know how is it called now you can choose where do you want to be based. But they will still ask you this question and at the moment you actually not sure especially if it's somebody's first job.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    When I got the offer I was excited that I have a job. You can than choose where do you want to have the course for the job. That's pretty good thing, the course can be even in your city so it's good thing. I would give advice to everyone first think carefully if you really want the job. If you think you have what it takes to do this job.
