    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.

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

    Pros

    -Get to travel internationally from day one
    -salary
    -make some. great friends
    -flying within the company discounted will finally be available to employees in January 2018
    -you can move up very quickly to cabin cheif in this company

    Cons

    -no real benefits
     -health insurance is terrible. It is Florida based so if you arnt based in FLL then everything is out of network. $5,000 detuctable
    -no paid vacation/time off
    -terrible with updating passengers on delays/cancellations
    -constant schedule changed for PVD & SWF based crew with no notice.
    -Shuttles crew after flights for 2-4hours to get to the next city they have to fly out of

    Advice to Management

    -Get better insurance benefits. It's not fair.
    -update the website better to inform passengers of delays/cancellations
    - stop shuttling crew between PVD & SWF and in Ireland. It's too exhausting on our bodies
