Abstract:

Inventory booklets were administered to all Entomology AFSC 566X0 personnel worldwide. Survey results are based on the responses of 248 job incumbents, representing 65 percent of the career ladder. The overall sample was representative in terms of MAJCOM and grade distributions. The analysis of the Entomology career ladder structure revealed a highly homogeneous career ladder. Two major job clusters and one independent job type were identified. Factors differentiating between the groups were number of tasks performed and time spent on certain sets of tasks. In general, Senior Entomologists performed both supervisory and administrative functions as well as technical functions, while Junior Entomologists primarily performed technical functions. Job descriptions for both 3- and 5-skill level respondents were very similar. Job incumbents in both skill level groups were primarily managing and handling pest control materials and maintaining entomology equipment and facilities. Seven-skill level respondents were performing technical tasks similar to those performed by 3- and 5-skill level personnel. In addition, 7-skill level respondents were spending larger amounts of time on supervisory and administrative functions. Similar trends were noted for AFMS groups.
