12 hour shifts (minimum) 7 days a week for 12 weeks
A typical day started at 4pm and ended around 6am. Seven day work weeks, twelve weeks on and four weeks off. Very little support from management. Everyone was on there own. I developed the pastry program from ground up, which was satisfying but stressful. Had to share living quarters with others and never left the ship for entire 12 week deployments.
