    I have been working at Ryanair full-time

    Pros

    I will be very fair giving three stars. One star for the Stable roster (5-3) Second star for the base transfer options all around Europe (That you have very little chances to get) A third star for the staff travel and the options.

    Cons

    now.... - They treat you as a slave or at least as a retarded child.... -Many times they address to you diminishing you like you don´t belong to the company as they hire temporary contractors. - Wrong people in important positions who won´t pass the good will and the good results of a worker...... For example...... They push you every day to rise the sales and they almost never care about safety during de-briefing. They don´t pay much even for your rent to be covered....I won´t mention that they don´t provide free food or water to the crew...nor transportation....They also push girls to the limit in a way that ruins their psychology and make them feel depressed. Those wrong people (in their wrong positions) try to get promotions and go higher in the ladder by highlighting the one negative thing in a year that you might have done instead of giving a good report in your everyday struggle. The company encourages you to be a "Roufiano" of your colleagues. YOU GET PAID FLIGHT TIME - ONLY (+ sales which usually is wrong and down counted) Monthly Duty time: 140 hours Flight Time: 85 Hours No more comments on that..... Allocated unpaid leave three - five weeks in 2020 for the crew. And this just to rise the share price cause it hit the 5 years lowest recently...Now - highest ever.....well done... Allocated Annual Leave and when you really need to go back to your country for an emergency they won´t give you possibly. Many times crew asks to go back due to family loss or emergency and they are not allowed to go. Many CC Supervisors should not even be in touch with people so sad and upset of their lives they are. Wrong people everywhere...of course there are some exceptions trying to give the good example.

    Advice to Management

    Be a "management". Your crew is your company´s face. Don´t treat them the way you treat your passengers....like retarded and unimportant. Face them as humans and not as numbers. The rest is better not to say because I am already overwhelmed by negativity for those people...

    I worked at Ryanair for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked for Ryanair 10 months (9 month contract and one extension of one month), I was based in Barcelona. My training was for free, it took 6 weeks, also the uniform was free of charge. I really enjoyed all the aviation environment and I was really lucky with the base and people there. I really loved the job, I had a lot of fun with my colleagues. It was my first real job experience after finishing the university and I'll never regret it. It gave me a lot, I learnt a lot and grew up professionally and also like a person. Stable roster 5-3.

    Cons

    I had basically from the beginning one big problem with the company and some of my colleagues had the same as well. Although I did all the necessary paperwork in order to receive it, I was missing 9 months my pps numer in Ireland and becouse of that I was 9 months on "emergency taxes", thats means during 9 months I received each month something like 1/2 of the salary. Once I got pps number they paid me back everything, but without help of my parents I have no idea what would I did during these 9 months. When my contract finished we had no more opportunity of another extension/change of base. Staff benefits...almost nothing...staff travel - sometimes it was cheaper to buy normal ticket. On the board nothing for free, not even stupid water...

    I worked at Ryanair full-time

    Pros

    Paid training course and the first uniform is offered. A 5/3 roster, planned one month ahead and confirmed every week on fridays, which is a HUGE plus to make plans and such for holidays. You go home every night; it's great when you have a family. Bases all over Europe. Logically, some are hard to get. You can become a chief cabin crew after only one year. To climb the ladder is pretty easy, as long as you're a good seller... which leads me to the downsides of working for Ryanair...

    Cons

    A lot of pressure on sales, and sharing between the crew is forbidden. You're being put in competition, that's not good for teamwork. Staff travel is not necessarily cheaper than passenger tickets. It's impossible to have relatives or friends enjoy any travel benefits. Chief cabin crew have a few 'free' tickets, but they have to book their flights long ahead. 'They' don't listen to you. The pay is on the same basis for anyone thorough the entire network. While it's fair on the paper, you don't live in London or Dublin with 1500€ like you live with the same amount of money in Budapest. Even while having a medical certificate, you will get a meeting after calling sick more than 3 times within a year. 25mins turnarounds. Most of the time, it's not realistic and you get blamed for being late.

    Advice to Management

    Although it's normal for a low-cost airline to have some focus on sales, cabin crew's primary job is safety and security of the aircraft, crew and passengers - so why does no one care? Listen! Please, listen. I've been based in a city where working as a fast food employee would get me more money. It's not normal, just like it's not normal to get meetings and reprimands just because the target wasn't reached.

    Pros

    Meet and work with people from many different cultures, learn a lot from training/ on the job. Good roster 5 on 3 off

    Cons

    Not payed for delays etc, earned half the amount my friends from other airlines earned but worked much more. Bad management abusing their power, sales pressure, no travel benefits staff travel only for yourself and sometimes more expensive than booking as a passenger
