    I have been working at OSM Aviation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It is very difficult to find anything positive

    Cons

    Very poor service provided on behalf of Norwegian. Gatwick operation is run by experienced HR advisors who are unable to provide professional support to their cabin crew. OSM HR advisors are implementing fear factor in order to achieve tasks given by their superior. There are many investigations taken against crew any many of them have been unfairly resolved be giving warnings and disciplinaries to crew. There is no trust between the crew and OSM. Many cabin crew are leaving on daily basis as it is very unpleasant environment OSM have created.

    I worked at OSM Aviation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Norwegian amazing and good, OSM wel...

    Cons

    I loved company I was working for, they cared about people, truly. What comes to OSM UK, well they dont care about you. They will do whatever it takes to make more money, even if it means getting rid of crew only in purpose to hire new so they get their commission. If you get ill down route, its not their consirn as long as you get out the hotel asap so they save some money. They offer / almost force you to go unpaid leave, during this time they will contact you and if you dont answer and fly to UK to see them then its a buy buy. Basically if they like you then you will have amazing career but if you dare to speak up your mind or say something that they dont want to hear then you are going against management. I could go on this list for a very long. But best advice... AVOID! Specually the HR-Department, oh boy.. they are some silly people who dont understand anything that has to do with working with people.

    I worked at OSM Aviation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You get to work on a plane. Job is pretty easy as long as you remain vigilant and safety orientated.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great for the long hours that you do. Layovers are not long - Mostly one day. No direct interaction between OSM and Cabin Crew. Pay is poor unless you've flown for the company for a few years. OSM are very cut throat and will fire you for just about anything. No compassion at all and they do not treat crew the same. They will bend the rules for one person but will decline it for someone else. They do not appreciate honesty if you have made a genuine mistake and will not look at your employment as a whole but will judge you on that one act even if you were not aware it was not allowed. They dont view you as individual but just as a thing/number that they can easily get rid of and replace. They make examples out of crew if they have made a mistake and then don't actually actively do anything to tackle the situation within the company even if its a widespread issue. They hope you being made an example of spreads around the company even though they have ruined your life to do so. My suggestion to crew is to lie to OSM at every chance possible to safeguard your job and your life. They will ruin your life and give bad references which are not a true representation of you as en employee of individual. Work for them at your own RISK.

    I have been working at OSM Aviation

    Pros

    Flying as A Cabin Crew, is always very fun and relax. Travel to oversea while on duty and stay in nice Hotel room. Checking out the shopping malls, places of interests in that country etc....It's a Lifestyle even though you are on the job.

    Cons

    OSM aviation management, can be more professional. Current scale is only 5 upon 10. HR and Accounting work needed to be Transparent to evey employee.
