Abstract:

There were 740 respondents to the survey representing approximately 68 percent of the assigned manning. The Telephone Equipment InstallerRepairman Career Ladder is extremely uniform. Twenty-three functional groups are reported in the Career Ladder Structure Section of this report. The large common core of tasks performed by approximately 75 percent of the sample are from duties covering Installing and Repairing Telephone System Outside Wiring Duty F, Installing and Repairing Telephone Systems Inside Wiring or Equipment Duty G, and Installing and Repairing Key Telephone Systems Duty H. Eighty-two percent of all survey respondents found their job interesting. This compares to 69 percent for incumbents in 35 other career ladders surveyed during 1975. Eighty-three percent indicated their job utilized their talents fairly well or better and 81 percent perceived the utilization of their training as fairly well or better. This compares favorably with the overall 1975 data of 74 percent for utilization of both talent and training. For the total sample DAFSC 362X4 personnel, 56 percent responded yes or probably yes to the question on their plan to reenlist. Responses to the same question by personnel in the 35 career ladders comparison group showed 55 percent would definitely or probably reenlist. There were no major differences in task performance of CONUS and overseas personnel. Generally, personnel overseas are in smaller organizations and assigned to AFCS, while the CONUS personnel are in organizations of 16 or more people with a much greater number assigned to SAC.
