      I worked at Ryanair full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      - perfect for people with no work experience - very good training - safety and security way better than in other airlines -no matter how badly they speak about the airline I have to admit that was on highest level, - newest fleet in Europe - stable roster 5:3

      Cons

      - they don’t like if you are sick too often, call you out to Dublin for some meetings giving you warnings, most probably cause they don’t need you anymore since you, for example paid your training in total already and you have to make space for new ones who’s salary will be minimized by the training costs, - salary is avarage like in most european airlines, had to pay the income tax myself - that was really bad - you...

      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Ryanair for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Flight x hour pay was ok, you come back home after work, 3 days off, some collegues are very nice. 1200 euros new joiners allowance. But not if you leave the company before 1 year.

      Cons

      No chance to have a permanent contract after years in the base you want to be even if you stay there 10 years in a renewed fixed term contract, no extra hours paid, no sick pay, standby days not paid, no food or drink and only on a standby staff travel and have to pay for it, sometimes moore expensive than a pax normal ticket. The work clima is competitive between collegues, fighting for on board sales bonus, bullying...

      Advice to Management

      You prefer hire new unexperience cabin crew giving a bad customer care than reward old ones, in fact after years I get same moneys of new joiners, fake promises about staff travel benefits telling that were willing to travel around the world?

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at Ryanair full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      A salary is about the only thing you can look forward to . That and one day you will resign.

      Cons

      Probably the worst airline you could have the misfortune to work for.

      Advice to Management

      Try and treat yourself staff better than O' leary treats his horses.

      I worked at Ryanair full-time

      Pros

      You'll gain great experience in a large company that services 30 international markets. Good management.

      Cons

      The company only offers the minimum amount of holidays - 20 days per year. It's out in Swords, near the airport so it's difficult to get to if you don't drive.

      Advice to Management

      Provide more social activities.
