A lot of the Army sit doing not much and the other half are working a STUPID amount of hours. Staff shortages mean you work doing others people's jobs who have left the service. With no extra pay or appreciation. Poor pensions 2015, poor pay and very poor progression.
Not bad at all depending on role of course. Infantry was 8 till 4 depends on what activites are happening and whats going on around camp.
