DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS

Mechanic I:
A Mechanic I performs entry-level work in the semi-skilled and skilled maintenance trades while under the direction of a journey-level mechanic. Incumbents must gain proficiency and attain the skills necessary to function at the next higher level while independently providing semi-skilled facilities, plumbing, masonry, fabrication, painting and maintenance work.

Employees in this class typically report to an Operations, Maintenance, Compost or Facilities Program Supervisor.

Mechanic II:
Mechanic II is the skilled journey-level class in this class series. Incumbents perform journey-level duties in the installation, maintenance and repair of water, wastewater, recycled water, groundwater recharge and composting facilities, transmission systems and related equipment. Incumbents perform plant mechanic, machinist, welder, crane operator, rigger, plumber, pipefitter and machine tool operation. All incumbents are qualified to perform preventive, predictive and corrective maintenance of the Agency's equipment and facilities.

Employees in this class typically report to an Operations, Maintenance, Compost or Facilities Program Supervisor and may provide technical direction to lower-level mechanics.

Mechanic III:
Mechanic III requires a higher level of knowledge, experience and certification in the preventive, predictive and corrective maintenance of the Agency's equipment and facilities. Incumbents may also provide work guidance to lower-level staff. Assignments vary, and some jobs may require a mechanic with more specialized knowledge.

Employees in this class typically report to an Operations, Maintenance, Compost or Facilities Program Supervisor and may provide technical direction to lower-level mechanics.

Mechanic IV:
Mechanic IV is the advanced skill level and working lead class in the Mechanic class series and provides oversight of the preventive maintenance program including data analysis and provides input into the maintenance strategy. In addition to performing the full range of journey-level and advanced skill-level duties, incumbents serve as the working lead person of journey-level Mechanics and related maintenance personnel, coordinating and overseeing the work and providing training and guidance to employees engaged in the skilled installation, maintenance and repair of water, wastewater, recycled water, groundwater recharge, transmission systems and related equipment. Incumbents work with limited supervision and exercise independent judgment to ensure employees complete assigned tasks and responsibilities in accordance with established policies, procedures and guidelines.

Employees in this class typically report to a Maintenance Supervisor and provide lead work direction and guidance to Mechanics.

Mechanic IV is distinguished from Maintenance Supervisor in that incumbents in the latter class have full supervisory responsibilities and more complex maintenance planning and administrative duties.
