I worked at Ryanair full-time (More than 5 years)
3 years contract renewable ,5 on 2 off - 5 on 3 off roster ,Huge airline with bases throughout all Europe ,easy job really and lot of fun with collegues on board.
too much pressure for Sales, staff travel system should improve , direct contract with ryanair should be given at end of 3 years service instead of carrying on with agency or at least basic salary for all crew.
Advice to Management
Listen to your crew..as you listened to our customers as per Always getting better. Reduce prices for inflight bar and you might make even more money. Less war between crew for whos selling more , invest more on improve TEAMWORK instead!!!
I applied online. I interviewed at Ryanair.
Interview was quick, although split in 2 parts, written and oral. Not so difficult, but not the easier you could get. General impression of a good commitment by the recruiter although the selection could be more strict. The majority of the people coming from south of Europe held a bachelor and mostly all the English speakers barely a high school degree. That produces discrepancies in between expectations and reality. The first selection is made by a written test that is not very difficult. The oral part is more focused on the aviation industry and specific questions about theirs and your intentions. Overall, despite the amount of complaints they receive, treatment is fare with time passing by, although there are still with some dodgy contractual aspects.
