Below is a few comments from cabincrew.com who are helping Ryanair scam even more young people...
All my 3 chosen bases were in Italy and then they gave me London STN. I have to say I think STN would be a great base but it would mean leaving Italy. I just prefer for them to be honest at the start. Then I found out that if you are based in UK you have to open a Barclays account and based in Europe you have to open an Irish bank account. My question is.... Why????
I didn't know about the Bank requirements. But this might be due to FR's recruitment being sorted by a company called St. James? Maybe.. Irish? That's strange.
I think this has to do with tax. Ryanair has been in trouble a few times over this, where they have crews based in different countries, and are not paying any of taxes for the crews. They then claim that the crews are employed in Ireland, so they so not have to pay taxes in the country where the crew is based. Honestly, I think the whole thing is dodgy... what if a crew member is let go... can they claim any benefits in their home country, if they have not been contributing there, as all of the contributions have been made in Ireland? I think the UK is different again.. probably because of the currency, and the fact that the operations are so big there.
Ryanair - will never apply to work for them, will never ever fly with them!
New recruits you must protect yourself and ask why......Ryanair will freeze your bank account once Terminated and take your last months salary.....YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED......See post below.
