depends, are you talking about on post or deployed in a combat zone?
i work 2-3 days a week... and anywhere from 4-16 hours a day
12-19 hour days 7 days a week when we're underway which is 270ish days a year. Gogo forward deployed navy.
umm, I want stahs' job. We work 12-20 a day, 7 days a week when underway which is o about 280 days out of the year. The rest is a reasonable 6 or so hours in port. Then the duty which is an unavoidable 24 hour day, with luck not during a weekend.
last week I worked 72hours. Maintenance FTL.
i work 26 hours a day/9 days a week.
active duty 24 hours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year on call even if you are home on leave.....AMIRITE!?
24 hours a month.
Usually more than 40 hours a week, then more if it is drill weekend
do you mean how long do i do work or how long am i at work. they probably differ by a few hrs a day
A Marine is on duty 24/7 until he dies. Then we report for heaven security detail.
it really depends on what you're doing and where you're stationed etc
for example when I went through Nuclear Power school it was 40 hours of class followed by an average of about 45 hours mandatory study every week. When I went through the Prototype training it was 12 hour shifts, 7 days, with a rotating crew. Nuclear weld school was a cake walk in comparison. When I finally got to the boat normal work hours were considered 0800 to 1630, if you had duty then you stood duty. Depending on the work load or what activities were going on you could be gone early or later.
Underway welllllllll . Underway was 6 on/12 off. That 12 off you were doing maintenance, training, running drills etc. You never really got that 12 off. I once stood Engine Room Lower Level on a 637 class submarine for 18 hours straight thanks to Battle Stations.
edit for dumbness
Well over 100 hours a week sadly.
40hrs/week, if I go over that, I get comp time.
same here, they are too cheap to pay overtime.
i stopped counting my hours...honestly, i don't want to know. way too many.
if i'm not flying that week, anywhere from 25-40 with a fairly liberal come and go policy.
if i am flying, then 50ish.
when deployed, we average 12 hour days, with 22-26 hour flying days.
I think the pattern is don't join if you are lazy?
yeah i probably have the best schedule. missile maintenance isnt too bad of a job. we dont do pt either, and nobody gives a shit about how our uniforms look.. or boots.. or hair really.
tomorrow i have to get up at 7 and watch a missile that was pulled because it has enable codes on it.. sit in a truck.. and watch it until they come to take the missile apart. make sure nobody fucks with it, even though it is inside a 60ft missile.
oh and because i worked ill have the entire next day off.
Meh I have a rotating watch bill so it's a bit different for me. I typically stand +/- twelve 12-hour watches a month.
48-60+ hours a week
Sad thing is that I work more hours when im a civilian
From 0530 till about 19pm.
It's the infantry though, so unless we're in the field/deployed it's standing by/PT/classes.
