Shocked they get away with it
Worked 6 months for this company - And only stayed the 6months until I received my €600 bonus. A bonus I paid for in advance. Yes - To accept the job, you are required to cover the cost of training €4K+. As a courtesy, they return lump sums on first, second & 6th salary - 6th being the largest. On the condition you stay with the company for at least 12 months. If not, you repay the “Bonuses”. All the while completing an intense 6 week training course, WHILST NOT BEING PAID. That’s before you even see an aircraft !! That’s when the fun starts. If you pass all exams to graduate (standard airline training) - However only allowed one re-sit for the entire training. You excitedly get your wings, ID, Schedule & you’re ready to fly ! Fly, fly, fly, fly, fly - Is literally all you do !! Working 5 on 2 off, 5 on 3 off - On rotating weeks of earlies to lates, you are never off the aircraft (EXHAUSTING WORK) - However, the best part.. You only earn, get paid by the hour, for actually flying !!! Consider a flight from Dublin to Manchester (you can do 6 a day) - Flight time we’ll say 45minutes MAX. Think of everything that goes into a flight before the wheels come off the ground (aka, when you actually start to be paid). Think about the cleaning, the security checks, the boarding, the briefings, the demo, securing for take off - And then all in reverse for landing. All that time on the ground, supposedly keeping safety at the highest standard.. takes a good 1.5hrs, and you’re paid fo

Not appreciated, thankless and unrewarding
From the ground up are dishonest. You couldn't trust them the length of you're arm. When something goes wrong team leaders lie through their teeth to drop you in it so to save their own skin. You're promised the sun, moon and stars but it's all lies. For 3 years I was employed by a recruitment agency and not directly. There is a large turn over of staff because of this. Very difficult to become directly employed. To get a contract you must be in the "click" or have family already working directly. This is also the same when trying to get promotion. The staff in this "click" get away with being lazy and are made look like heros while the hard workers never get noticed. There is no proper system when it comes to training. Staff waiting over a year to get trained on something such as headsets while other staff only working there 6 months and get this training. In the 3 years I worked there you wouldn't believe what I saw. Work place injuries due to disorganization and staff not receiving correct training. Staff getting away with arriving for work out of it. Supervisors leaving agency staff in charge so they can finish work early to go to the pub....... The uniform and protective gear is of the cheapest quality and not suitable for out door work. It doesn't last for long and needs replacing. To get anything replaced such as boots you're requesting it for weeks. It's a job where if you show an interest and want to learn new things it will get you no where. But if you coast th

Great fun but hard work and terrible pay
Having worked on the Ramp for the last while I can say that Ryanair is the best of a bad bunch at Dublin Airport. The management will pick on those they do not like and give worse flights (heavy and understaffed crews). There is no bonus for extra work or training such as headsets , marshalling or de-icing. The pay is absolutely awful for the work that is required. You will break your back from start to finish on a busy day to the point you will be going home sore and exhausted. Crews typically consist of 4 people to a flight but this is best case scenario and sometimes you are expected to perform a full turn around with a crew of 3 (1 of which is the dispatcher so does not actually get into the hold and help load). Management is awful in terms of the interaction with staff, If your team lead does not like you then you will be shafted with extra flights and made feel excluded from the team. There is a real "click" culture and new staff are often bullied because they may not have the same experience as some more experienced staff and this makes the whole environment feel toxic and stressful. The work-life balance is near non existent given you work 3 earlies and 3 late and 3 off (5:30 - 6am start early or 1:30 -2pm late). this combined with the fact you only get one weekend a month makes having any form of social life impossible. Overall the only good part to this job is the people. You will meet some amazing people on the ramp and have some very good laughs you simply

Hard work
A typical day in work is, we get briefed, we do security checks on the aircraft and then we board the passengers. After, we would then make sure everyone is seated and then perform the safety demo. Following this, we are in the air, we set up the bar and trolleys and start to give the passengers what they want from collecting their rubbish to first aid. When we come in to land we then secure the cabin making sure everyone is safe and then after landing we disembark the passengers, clean the aircraft and then start another three flights with the same process (minus the briefing). This is our shift for one day. We work five days a week. It is very hard work as our lunch breaks don't exist and we are constantly moving. We have to work fast and make sure everything is safe and most of all clean. We rotate staff daily. Our crew consist of six people each day. I've learnt so much about different people, both as passengers and staff. I also learned that everyone has high expectations and it is my job to meet these demands. The most enjoyable part of the job is traveling to different countries and seeing the behavior of different races. It gives the sense of unity because such different cultures and varieties of langues are only a few hours apart. The hardest part of the job is not being able to sit down, rest or take a break during our long shift. If we are lucky we might get a few minutes to shovel a bit of food into ourselves while someone else is nice enough to look ov

What is my personal experience in Ryanair
I would like to say that I enjoyed my life in Ryanair at first. It was all exciting for me. After one year I started being frustrated. Management pressed to much about sales on board. At first I was always positive. As soon as I noticed employees are numbers and if you do not know someone important in the Companyyou do not get anything I started being unhappy. Promotion was based on sales. Even though I did my best, I was one of the Best Sellers in few categories;I was always polite to collogues and passengers I did not get the promotion. There is no criteria. People ten months in the Company that have no clue how to deal with emergency situation or normal days, they got promotion. A typical day at work starts with a briefing with the crew. Then, once on board we do pre-departure inspections. When we are ready we start boarding passengers. Then we depart. We start the service. We disembark. We do security checks. We start boarding again and so on. It can be for two flights up to six per day. I learned a lot. Security is important in Ryanair. I learnt how to deal with different situations. Ordinary or emergency situations. I do not like the way thy treat people. Employers are numbers. The hardest part of the job is to get use to wake up very early for 5 days (it means for example 3:50 a.m.) and then the next week come back home late (e.g. 1 o'clock a.m.). The most enjoyable part of the job is be kind with passengers and see that they are kind to you.
Prosyou can feel that passengers relay on you.
ConsNo food for crew. Not even water. Some days are too long.

Difficult place to work enjoyed it for the first while when you like working in the airport but then the management went downhill
The lads and ladies the management like will get nice and easy flights and they will all get permanent contract cause when you first go to Ryanair you will be working for a agency as a baggage handler and not directly. You have to be there a year before they even consider giving you a contract. I was there for two years and just barely got all the training to do more things done because I actually wanted to be able to do things. I was waiting maybe up to a year before I got my airport driving licence just because the trainer and management were to lazy and just didn't want to do any training half the time. I would not recommend this job if you are not physically for hopping in and out of the aircraft and the vehicle you drive.
ProsMake good friends. Lots of overtime.
ConsLongs hours, Working in rain, hail, sleet, snow, The protective rain gear they give you will let the rain soak through, No real extra pay for nightshift only an extra 50c, The management can be terrible and unfair just because the manager may not like one specific person

A good place to start your aviation career and nothing more.
It is a good place to start your career in aviation and then move on if you really want to grow and develop your career. At Ryanair you will meet different people especially in a big base like Dublin but not all of them are professionals. In fact you will notice that most supervisors care only about the on board sales and they stress you about it and in the end you end up taking less commission than your actual sales.But most of the days pass nicely as most of the crew is fun to work with. However, some of the base supervisors really want to help you but they get pressured by above to push you about the sales and to be unreasonably strict when others just enjoy it as it comes naturally for them. Salary and pay rate is low for Dublin but you can manage in normal circumstances without the current crisis. There is no recognition unless you are a top seller or the report everyone kinda guy or both. If I would do it again? For personal reasons and for the easy entry to aviation yes.
ProsEasy entry and good roster 5/3
ConsSalary, management, constant stress about sales, no recognition.

Fast paced, sales and safety driven workplace.
Working for Ryanair is a very varied job. A typical day consists of getting into work 45minutes before our flight is due to leave, meeting the crew for the day and getting a briefing on the running of the day activities and duties. Once on board you have a number of security, safety and stock checks. You greet passengers coming on board and help with storing luggage. Once the flight takes off you have a number of sales duties including selling Newspapers, carrying out the bar service and selling scratchcards. In general management are very pleasant but at times may not give crew as much appreciation and encouragement as is deserved. The co workers are very hard working and you meet some interesting people from all over Europe. I found the hardest part of the job the hours, some weeks having to wake up as early as 3.15 in the morning and work long shifts, it can really take it's toll and some weeks you are exhausted. The best part the job is dealing with a lovely team every day and meeting interesting people every day.

Think, cliched cartoon lunch money bullies.
Management spent more energy trying to find out ways to derail employees than nurture them. You don't expect respect when you go there or even expect to earn it, but even the fundamentals of having manners alludes them. The industry is exciting to work in, and potential to achieve both a successful company and healthy work place is alien to management. And HR facilitates, likely through no fault of there own, as placemats to hot frazzled tempers, ignorance and prop the "billy-big-bulls" egos that walk the floor bow legged with pointless self importance. At the end of the day everyone prances to the piper. I enjoyed the work I began doing, and enjoyed my immediate peers. They too are long gone with the mutual zen like feeling you get when you realise Detective Roger Murtaugh is right.

Worst place I ever worked
Job work/life balance: The inflight department in STN is the worst place ever. Manager doesn't know how to treat people.It's very commom to hear that the manager is shouting on the cabin crew. It's so usual that they make jokes about it. People in the office make bets to see how long someone is going to last with the manager. On the interview they advice to not listen to the rumors regarding the management but in one week you can be sure that the rumors about the bad management are right. They said they provide training but it's a lie. No training.No respect.Bullying, harassment and corruption all the time. If you complain about the management you get fired. If you question something you are wrong. If you as for help nobody helps and you are wrong all the time. No team player. They ask you to work overtime with no compensation on your salary but you can't turn your computer on 1 min after your duty start. Pressure with no reason. You will also be required to do tasks that are not your job tasks such as lift weights and heavy boxes, cut tons of uniforms without appropriate scissors, pregnant girls with 7 months of pregnancy will do filling sitting on the floor for the supervisors, cleaning the crewroom, cutting uniforms without appropriate scissors, lifting weight/boxes. Phrases as : Who do you think you are, or Google it when you don't understant something, or You are not in your country, are said frequently by Managers and Personnel. Salary and benefits: Just your salary
ProsNone.

Assistente di volo | Stansted | 24 Sept 2021
La gente si lamenta troppo...
Ho lavorato per due anni a Stansted,in UK, considerato il posto più terribile di Ryanair. Dicono sia una sezione a parte, ma essendo stato lì, posso dare un feedback autorevole; nelle piccole basi pare esserci vita migliore. Il lavoro è impegnativo, questo si: direi che se tutti i lavori hanno pro e contro, questo lavoro per me ha avuto grossi pro e grossi contro. Si lavora su turni, si alternano 5 giorni di lavoro (includendo, spesso, giornate di reperibilità) a 3 di riposo totale. Si alternano quindi cinque giorni di "early" (alzarsi molto presto la mattina) e "late" (andare a lavoro di pomeriggio). La maggior parte dei colleghi erano più giovani (22-26 anni), io una trentina. Ecco perchè sentivo sempre lamentele su tutto: stipendio, lavoro, La stragrande maggioranza dei colleghi è stata spesso molto carina, capita una volta ogni tanto che incontri il responsabile del volo un pò deficiente, ma sorridi e ti fai passare la giornata.Ed è molto raro. A Stansted molta competizione per le vendite, ma è un fatto personale decidere quanto essere competitivi, con gentilezza puoi decidere di non rovinarti la giornata. Il periodo iniziale è MOLTO stressante, questo si. Tra corso, esami continui, (che si superano perchè sono fattibili), spostarsi di nazione, trovare casa in quattro e quattr'otto... Ma sono cose che si superano, e poi è tutto in discesa. Giornate lunghe, può capitare di stare 10-12 ore fuori di casa (più dieci),ma ci sono anche giornate più brevi e di reperibilità i

A place were efficiency & punctuality are vital.
A typical day at work: I start the day at the check in with customer attention, checking documentation and checking in the bags or what the passengers want to check in(if it is posible). Then if my boss assings me a boarding i go, prepare everything i need and go to the boarding gate, wait until the plane arrives and meanwhile chat with customers. Let's say that the flight it's delayed, you must tell the passengers and prepare all the claim related papers and you must give all the explanations to your passengers. If it's a normal flight with normal conditions i've got to - Do the flight announcement, and wait untill the line forms - Before the boarding starts you must put a label on a wheelchair, bugy or any other thing they haven't check-in before(depending on how the airport and company works) - Check de passports, ids or driver license, depending of the travel destination and scan the boarding passes. - Put inside the plane's vault the bags that won't fit inside the plane(Dispacher's job, but i put all the tags before) and all the other things you just put a label on. - When boarding finishes you must send the data to the dispacher and he will send all that and more data to the operations desk. I've learned how to show trust and make the customers feel safe with their choice. Also i've learnt how to be stressed and not showing it at all. The management it's instresting, as a low cost company there are many things you do/don't do to avoid the company pay extra.

A few miles to high
Alarm goes of at 3 am to drag your self out of bed from the maybe 2 hours of sleep you managed to grab. You do the best you can to grab a cup of tea and put on the uniform your given and the make up spilled through your draw. Eventually you find your self at the desk where you are to be briefed and asked your safety and first aid questions, in cabin crew there is no space for hiccups. You've got onto the aircraft and done all of your security checks knowing that this flight to Magaluf will defiantly be one to remember. 180 people ready to get on their summer holidays safely sat down and in the air the fun begins - In one flight you maybe able to serve drinks just the once - answering call bells throughout - you have sick bags to the ready and very quickly running out of change for the stag who just purchased the majority of the beer. Your co-workers are hard working and honest people who have trained by your side getting the same high requirements you got to make sure no matter what - you are safe. The flight is busy but going smooth - the four of you have got it all under control and before you know it just two and a half hours later you feel the heat hit you as you open the plane door - hardest part being you are not getting off - but you do get to clean up all that rubbish left a repeat your security checks.

Avoid it at all costs!!
Ryanair is a pretty awful company and it treats everyone badly and disrespectfully starting from customers and extending it to workers. (You can check that by the large number of strikes pilots made a few months ago). They only care about numbers and you will be treated as a number as well. There's a lot of sales, sales and more sales to do. And if you don't achieve the day's target......... It's a perfect place for you to feel like an unworthy human being: very disrespectful base supervisors and managers, yelling at everyone they can, and being impatient even with new crew members. Even small things you do "wrong", you will have a meeting. I saw a lot of cabin crews crying after these meetings, and they think it's fine to make people cry. The salary is a joke. You will receive less than every worker around UK and believe me, this is true. All that "glamorous" idea and life you see in advertisements as a Cabin Crew, disappear when you join Ryanair. It's a complete illusion. A lot of disrespectul No1 cabin crews too. More than 85% of the cabin crews of Stansted (including No1s) say they don't like the company, the management....and that they don't care about anything. So, if every arrow is pointing for the same direction, it must mean something, right? As long as the company keeps aiming on a lot of countries in crisis, there will be new staff members coming up. And a lot of people is only working for Ryanair because they don't want to suffer hunger in their countries a

ambiente stimolante, ma sacrificante
La mia tipica giornata lavorativa è la tipica giornata di un assistente di volo. Dopo un briefing con piloti sulla tratta e le condizioni del volo e con la crew sulle procedure basilari e su come raggiungere il target di vendita, raggiungo l' aereo e controllo accuratamente che tutta la strumentazione e le norme, dotazioni di sicurezza siano in conformità. Dopo l'imbarco dei passeggeri e dopo il decollo comincio le mie mansioni che sono quasi esclusivamente incentrate sulla vendita dei prodotti disponibili a bordo. Ho sicuramente approfondito la mia conoscenza della lingua inglese, confrontandomi quotidianamente con passeggeri e colleghi, le mie doti comunicative e le mie capacità di venditore. Ho inoltre imparato a far fronte a situazioni difficili come un'emergenza in un ambiente particolarmente difficile come può essere la cabina di un aereo con 189 passeggeri e conseguente tolleranza e gestione dello stress. I miei colleghi di lavoro sono di certo una delle parti più stimolanti del mio lavoro. Vivo un ambiente multiculturale che mi permette ogni giorno di confrontarmi e fare nuove reali amicizie dovendo reagire ad ogni situazione da vero gruppo unito e compatto. La mia azienda ed in particolare la mia base è notoriamente conosciuta e caratterizzata da uno degli ambienti più stressanti, competitivi e pretenziosi del mondo del serizio al cliente, Nonostante i sacrifici che comporta un simile mestiere lontano dai propri affetti e comodità, sono sempre stato molto curios

Varied and Challenging
A typical day would involve a start time as early as 5am on an early shift and finishing as late as midnight on a late shift. The average length of a shift would be approximately 9 hours, however it was not unusual to work up to 12 hour shifts and even longer, if delayed. The start of the day, would involve meeting the rest of your crew and supervisor for a briefing, then going on board the aircraft to complete pre-departure inspections, receiving passengers, assisting them in any way possible, ensuring a speedy boarding process, performing the safety demonstration, securing the cabin for take off, serving drinks and snacks and preparing hot food during the flight as well as duty free goods, preparing the cabin for landing, disembarking passengers safely and carrying out security checks and general tidying of the aircraft in preparation for the next load of passengers. I learned the importance of time management and organisational skills, as well as the ability to communicate effectively with people, to resolve any issues, how to keep cool under pressure and most importantly team work. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and working alongside colleagues of different nationalities and cultures, developing good personal and professional relationships. The hardest part of the job would have to be coping with delays (which was frustrating for passengers and crew) as well dealing with passenger issues/ complaints, which was challenging at times, however train
