Note:
We are currently working 6-8's(six days a week, 8 hours days). Sometime in Spring/Summer, we should shift to 6-10's(6 days a week, 10 hours a day).In short, 6-8's fall to spring, 6-10's spring to fall.

An employee will work 4-8 weeks on shift(working in Alaska) and 2 weeks off shift(personal time off). We have to maintain a 3 man crew, and so we rotate bodies. A good portion of the time, time off comes at the end of a project, whether its 4 or 8 weeks. We try to remain flexible if an employee needs more time off, less time off, etc. In the end though, we have to maintain a full 3 man crew as needed by clients.

This has been the Norm for the past. The days/hours worked is always subject to change depending upon clients need, and not guaranteed, and may change through time, or projects at clients request.
