Abstract:

The Weather Equipment career ladder job inventory was administered worldwide during the fall of 1979 and these data were analyzed by March 1980. Survey results are based on responses from 557 members, or 77 percent of all assigned career ladder members CEM Code 30100 personnel excluded. Twelve job groups were identified, eight of which representing 92 percent of the survey sample were performing primarily organizational or intermediate level maintenance on surface or upper air weather observation equipment. The remaining job groups were distinguished by their specialization on certain equipment, depot level maintenance, or supervisory and managerial duties. Although some small groups specialized on some pieces of equipment, generally most personnel performed some maintenance on the majority of the conventional weather observation equipment amount of time spent or equipment items varied somewhat, thus indicating a career ladder that is relatively homogeneous and stable in nature. Personnel at the 5-skill level spent almost all their job time performing technical tasks. While 7-skill level members supervisory and managerial duties were greater than the 5-skill level airmen, they were still performing highly technical jobs, with many technical tasks performed in common with 5-skill level personnel.
