Default Anyone get a Norwegian interview?

I filled out the app two days ago and got an invite this morning for interview in Miami in early March.

I didn't quite expect this quick of a turnaround, to be honest. I also can't find a single thing about their pilot pay scales (I guess just extrapolate the Euro pay into USD?)

Default Norwegian pilot pay, from the source

Here is the pay and their information, sparse as it is.


737 first then 787.

CAREFUL FOR THE BONDING requirement ON THE 787.

This is hardly competitive for US carriers...





The B737 Max8

Fast Track Command

If you have a high level of experience on large turbo prop aircraft, the time in the right seat required is around 700 hours (approx 12 months) before command upgrade can start. The combination of total time and jet time is thus 6000 with minimum 700 being on Norwegian (plus upgrade training). It will, naturally, require passing the CDR evaluation.
(Ex1: you have a total of more than 5300 hours on a Dash8, you only need 700 hours in the right seat before you can upgrade as a B737 CDR. Ex2: You have 3500 hours total of which 2200 hours are on jets over 30T MTOW, you will only need 300 hours in the right seat to be eligible for command upgrade). The above examples are always dependent on the need of captains and you passing the upgrade requirements.

I was on mobile and didn't see the attachment. Yup, this is direct cut/paste from what they sent me.

Seems....underwhelming, especially with a 3 year contract.

Interview invite 2 days after applying? Guess that says a lot about the place and the lack of applicants.

Well, I admittedly put my apps in late in the game. I'm retiring from the AF soon. So, I applied, but I also couldn't find anything about their US pay, etc.

So.....Yeah. I'm in a unique (for me) position where I get one free move to anywhere in the US. I can finally pick where I want to go. Now it's just a matter of finding a job.

Please do more research on NAI. As a retiring Mil guy you can get a job at a major fairly easily. May take a short stint at a regional. DO NOT accept a 3 year bond for a crappy job that will tarnish you for a long time.

Might want to factor in the aspect of being considered on par with a scab by many if you take this job. That could hamper your future plans to move onto some place else when you inevitably get tired of being grossly overworked and severely underpaid.

Personally, I'd get educated a little on how much hate there is for this carrier and anyone flying for them. I'd avoid it like a hooker from sub-Sahara Africa.
