Long Hours, Median Compensation
Electronic Technician First Class (Current Employee) – Navy, VA – July 16, 2018
The pay looks good from the outside looking in, but when the long and sometimes arduous working conditions are factored in the pay does not compare. At sea, the average working day is 14 hours long, 7 days a week. The pay does not change based on hours worked. Ashore, the average work day is 10 hours long and 5 days a week. The compensation is less ashore, then at sea.
30 days paid vacation per year, free healthcare
