Advice to future employees

Just dont join please because you will regret it. Management hate pilots and your nothing more than a cost to them. I know current employees who want to give up flying because of Ryanair.

Perfect airline for depressing

Pros

-High diversity of destination (depends on the base) -Crew

Cons

-Worst HR ever. Had to beg them to be paid the first months flying, no answer to replies, no consideration, payslip full of mistakes... -Very hard to contact someone in the company if you have a problem. Ryanair has an internal system in which nobody answer. can send them 10 times your queries: no answer. Perfect when you need help -No information: no idea of what to expect for incoming months. Particularly during cadet training -Had to pay for everything. Even the drug test (50) -rebased at the last minute. Have been aware of it 4 days before being transfered -low paid compared to what you need to pay to work for them. A cadet may expect to spend a total of 45000 before receiving the first pay: 30000 type rating + 5000 licence, uniform, ID card, etc + 5000 for living in UK during the 3 months training + 5000 of miscellaneous payment Then expect a monthly pay of 2000 -etc...

Advice to management

Buy a soul

Advice to future employees

Please, guys, I understand that the promise to fly 737 when you desperately try to find a first job looks awesome compared to Ryanair cons. But for sur, you'll regret it. It's easy to think you will join ryanair just to build hours. But bad things happend as soon as the first month working for them. When you are stuck in a base you didn't ask for, with very expensive house rents and low pay, far from home and family, with lots of difficulties to comute home, you will reconsider your pilot carreer and how you see the pilot life. This is Hours building Vs mental health
