The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, offers three different work schedules to most employees. The basic work schedule is 8 hours per day, five days per week. The most popular schedule is the Alternative Work Schedule, on which employees work 9 hours per day for eight days during a 2 week pay period, one 8-hour day, and get one day off every two weeks (e.g. week 1: M-Th 9 hrs/day, F: 8 hrs; week 2: M-Th 9 hrs/day, F: day off). The third work schedule is even more flexible, allowing employees to start and end their work day at different times and earn credit hours that can be taken like vacation time.
