Hello Ladies and Gents,



In case anyone wondering how the assessment is like, a bit of feedback from my side:



Applied in summer, mail by autumn that they stopped hiring, also in autumn i received a mail from Nikki saying that i applied and she wants to schedule a teams meet.



Teams meet with Nikki:



Nice atmosphere, open, honest, lots of talk from my side, little from hers (as usual during such interview stages), mainly questions about me, CV, why norse, talk about a difficult CRM related event/decision in the past etc etc. Nothing to prepare really, just an easy, straight forward chat. I have no idea (percentage wise) how much about the interview is due to the Germanwings event and how much is about actual norse suitability. To what I understand this teams meet is part of the assessment and the “results” have nothing to do with whether or not you get an invitation to the assessment, it seems like results from assessment and Nikki will somehow be combined to get a final decision.





Assessment on site:



ORY/LGW/OSL depending on availability.



Recruitment team consists of TRE and recruiting FO(s) - no psychologist.



Group Exercise about 10 minutes, split up in 2 groups, decide on a topic and then agree on a common solution



Interview: about 1 hr, nothing technical, again about CV, strengths, weaknesses, difficult CRM related situations in your past etc



Simulator: Type depending on assessment location. 737 NG in LGW and OSL, A350 in ORY. You are paired as PF/PM team with another applicant (1 hr in each role), takeoff, SID, vectors, ILS, GA incl. ENG FAIL, vectors VOR APP, landing. Main focus here on CRM and management of the flight/emergency. AP and FMS available. Use whatever procedures you are comfortable with from previous flown AC.



Duration about 8-9hrs depending on number of applicants. A few hours of waiting time in between can be spent by the coffee machine to have a chat with the other applicants.



Atmosphere really nice and welcoming. No traps. Depending on location including a lunch together as a group with the assessors.



Result per Mail usually within the next 5-10 days.



Starting dates atm February, March, April,May



All the best to those who applied

I’m sure the applicants will welcome your feedback so thank you for your generous sharing .
Are you sure the First Lady wasn’t a psychologist ?
After that scum ball flew into the Alps , I understand under EASA they must do psyche assessments as a mandatory item

Of course, Nikki is a psychologist and she clearly says that at the beginning of the teams meet. She also states that this meeting is held to see whether or not you are a good fit for norse and because of the Germanwings event.

What i meant is that i cannot say and not even take a guess to what percentage your answers count towards norse suitability and how much of the interview is concerning mental health.

During my on-site assessment however, which took place a few weeks AFTER the teams meet with Nikki, there was no psychologist present.

I hope that clarifies my above post.

Anyone got called for non type rated?

I haven´t heard anything from them. B737 experienced.

Also how do you do with the US Crew Visa if they are asking for the letter from an employer?

Thanks

RE: Norse needing money to survive the winter.

Ha, splendid idea but they are somewhat optimistic!
The news I am reading is not for the faint hearted unfortunately.

I have a lot of friends with them and I do hope they can survive this winter, let alone next winter.

Yes, no one will talk down the financial position of their employer . Their 4 th quarter wasn’t bad I understand financially but surviving till the summer peak is the game and I hope they manage it as I , too , have lots of old colleagues there

starting the Psycho process....

Hi there,

I applied in September for a B787 job based in Paris and did not hear anything.

Are they actively recruiting?

Thanks.

Norse Loss of License Cover

Can anyone divulge any info on Norse Loss of License Cover? Is there a top up option, if so how much? Does it consider prior medical conditions?

Thanks!

The pay isn't too bad to be honest and the gig at Norse is very good from what I have been told.

Their Second Officers get an abysmal salary nonetheless compared to Virgin, Cathay and Singapore. The poor sods have to repay the type rating too from that so-called salary!

It looks like Norse are using their SOs for the longer flights to avoid paying for two FOs, which is smart business thinking.

SOs are only on the Norway AOC.

Fleet will be up 2 units for S24, with these going on Norway AOC.

3 more units return S25.

Sir, any news about SOs joining the UK AOC any time soon? I heard there was some talk a while back but UK CAA weren't too keen or too much demand for FOs in the UK!

S24 8 upgrades UK AOC, its about double that on Norwegian AOC. 2 extra 787s S24 on Norwegian AOC. Time for most of those in Norse, est. 1yr(or less)-18 months.
