Abstract:

Senior noncommissioned officer jobs in base civil engineering are evaluated using the Job Characteristics Model strengths and weaknesses of various positions are identified and recommendations for overall improvements are made. The Job Diagnostic Survey JDS, a measurement instrument for the Job Characteristics Model, was administered to 414 senior noncommissioned officers in CONUS base civil engineering organizations. The following job classifications were surveyed Prime BEEF NCOs, fire protection superintendents, OM superintendents, unit supervisors, assistant unit supervisors, and technicians. The results of the survey are analyzed to examine what moderating effects the individuals job position, rank, educational level, and major command of assignment had on the JDS scores. Strengths and weaknesses in each job are also identified by comparing the JDS scores of each position within civil engineering as well as comparing the JDS data for each position to established nationwide normative data representing similar type jobs.
