Working Conditions

A normal workday in Norway is 7,5 hours, from 9 am to 5 pm including half an hour lunch break. The classic Norwegian lunch consists of sandwiches and salads.

If you occasionally are asked to work more than 9 hours a day or 40 hours a week you get a 40% extra overtime pay.

If you need to stay home due to illness you still get paid, but after three days out of the office, you need a sick leave from a doctor.

In Norway you have paid holidays. 10,2% of your gross salary from the previous year is paid when you go on vacation. Normally 4 weeks vacation per year, and usually during the summer months.

Qvisten Animation organizes a lot of social gatherings for the employees to get together and see eachothers work, followed by drinks and snacks. We arrange several events during the year at the cinema, gamenights, moviewraps and summerbreak parties.
