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

    Pros

    International travel, great co-workers, good company values, lots of potential for growth, good rosters right out of training, not a lot of micromanagement. The company is growing rapidly, and with fast growth there will be kinks to work out. If you can stick it out they seem to really want to fix the issues but it definitely won't be overnight.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from senior staff, hostility between management and union that bleeds into the attitudes of the crew, a few unprofessional and negative co-workers whose actions effect the dedicated and positive crewmembers, no control over your schedule, expensive insurance with 50/50 split between employee and company, no seniority, ID travel benefits decreased this year, no benefits on travel in the US, hard work isn't recognized by corporate, squeaky wheel gets all the grease at this company

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to meet one on one with your crewmembers to check in, set goals, listen to feedback and make changes. We are your eyes and ears and the ones who represent the company to the public, and it often feels like we are just a number. I fly because I love to travel and wanted to share travel with my family and friends. Now that the ID policy has changed the biggest benefit to retain me has disappeared. Reward the people who work hard for your company and you will keep them around long term.

    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 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been cabin crew- flight attendant at Norwegian for over two years. Instantly given roster from day one- no reserve lines. Free luggage, uniforms, meals. All international travel. Generous travel benefits within company. Forever expanding. Open door policy with management. Free breakfast at all hotels. Lots of opportunities to move up within flight department. Great salary and per firm.

    Cons

    Service training should be module within initial training. As it is currently, service training is learned on the job. This adds to inconsistency from flight to flight.
