    I have been working at Norwegian Air Shuttle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly working environment. No nonsense approach, very Scandinavian. A fast growing company with plenty of opportunities for promotion and career development.

    Cons

    As the company is growing and the balance of staffing vs number of operating aircrafts available is currently resulting in large number of stand by days in rosters. Flight allowances are paid a month in rears, which is making financial planning difficult.

    Advice to Management

    It would help if daily allowances were allocated and paid to crew on a day rather than monthly. Further though during continuous expansion is required to alleviate the problem of large number stand by`s and non flying, which is affecting level of monthly salaries.

    I worked at Norwegian Air Shuttle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The airline is a dream to work with. Great people, awesome pay, easy environment. A great way of reporting a dealing with things such as colleague conflict and passenger complaints.

    You have the option of joining as a junior, becoming a senior, line trainer, line checker. ground instructor and base chief!

    If you're nice to Crew Office (hard sometimes), you will get the best roster every, 5 days on, 4 days off!

    Layovers in Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen and sometimes parts of Spain. Enjoy them while you can!

    Great flight discount, you only pay the tax, however, due to it being budget, you'll be taking your chances getting a seat!

    Cons

    THE SHORT HAUL AGENCY: Please note if you work for Norwegian Short Haul in LGW, you will legally work for Aeroprofessional. They are terrible to work for. Unorganised, they pick favourites, no communication and are spiteful. Literally everyone in LGW dreads the day they have to contact them (most days tbf). If you're going to work for a brilliant airline like Norwegian, apply for Long Haul, at least then you will work for OSM which is much better in terms of employer.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Norwegian Management; Get rid of Aeropro. They're useless and reduce employee morale.
    Advice to Aeropro: Stop picking favourites, start working as a team, communicate with your colleagues and employees and BE FAIR.

    I have been working at Norwegian Air Shuttle full-time

    Pros

    12 days off a month.

    Cons

    Horrible management. The worst pension plan ever. Only 5 sick days paid per year.
    Employer (Aeroprofesssional) cannot comply with their duties. They never pay correctly to employees and aren't helpful at all. No replies to e-mails, etc... A shame!

    Advice to Management

    They have no idea what management is. No hope!
    Norwegian please get rid of Aeroprofessional!!! They are useless!!!

    I have been working at Norwegian Air Shuttle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's not a big company, so it's easier To fly with the same colleague more than once, which is nice, it helps us to keep friends.

    Cons

    We fly a lot, sometimes with minimum rest. Not good specially because we work for the safety of the aircraft.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so that you stop asking us to sell days off.
