Military and civil service pavements maintenance workers and construction equipment operators were surveyed using a job inventory checklist and relative time spent rating method along with background item responses. Job clustering and job typing of combined responses were performed and comparisons made between civilian and military groups as well as comparisons between the two groups on several background variables. No significant difference was found between civilian and military members of tasks performed for the total sample. However, at the specialty level some significant differences did occur. Average task difficulty and job difficulty means were higher for military members than for civil service members in some skill levels. Generally, the civilian members indicated higher job interest and felt job utilization of training and talents than did the military members. Military data collected in 1969 were compared to current data. An increase in felt utilization of training and talents was found as well as increased equipment utilization for first-term airmen.
