Classification Standard

 

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF CLASS SERIES

 

Maintenance Supervisors 1, 2, and 3 oversee the activities of skilled trades, semiskilled, and unskilled positions engaged in maintenance, repair, rehabilitation, and construction activities at State facilities. 

 

These positions are classified in several State agencies with the largest number in the Office of Mental Health, the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities, the State University of New York, and the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.

 

DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS

 

Maintenance Supervisors perform similar duties; they supervise, coordinate, and direct skilled, semiskilled, and unskilled activities of State, contract, and/or inmate workers under the direction of higher level maintenance supervisors, plant superintendent or administrative positions who direct the facilitys maintenance unit.  The level and number of Maintenance Supervisors 1, 2, and 3 classified at a facility or agency is determined by the following factors:

 

1.     Facility size (square footage).

2.     Scope of maintenance and repair activities supervised, as evidenced by the variety, number, and level of journey level trades staff and contractors.

3.     Maintenance contract management responsibilities (number, mix, and dollar value of projects).

4.     Number and level of subordinate staff.

5.     Age of facilities (frequency and type of maintenance required, and skill level of staff needed to maintain facilities).

6.     Facility use as evidenced by the number of events, residents, inmates, and visitors.

 

All the factors will be evaluated in the proper classification of a position. Typically, the higher the combined value of the above factors, the greater the allocation. 

 

MAINTENANCE SUPERVISOR 1: functions as a working supervisor of journey level trades staff engaged in maintenance, repair, rehabilitation, and construction activities.  Maintenance Supervisor 1 positions are located in State facilities in which the volume of work in a single trade is insufficient to warrant a specialized trades supervisory position.

 

MAINTENANCE SUPERVISOR 2: supervises the maintenance program for an agency, facility, region, or group of facilities with up to 500,000 square feet of actively maintained space and with a sizable number of events, residents, inmates, and visitors; directs projects involving four to six building and construction trades*; oversees at least 15 subordinates, including journey level tradespersons; and manages a moderate number of maintenance contracts. 

 

MAINTENANCE SUPERVISOR 3: supervises the maintenance program for an agency, facility, region, or group of facilities with over 500,000 square feet of actively maintained space and with a large number of events, residents, inmates, and visitors; directs projects involving more than six building and construction trades*; oversees over 25 subordinates, including journey level tradespersons; and manages a large number of maintenance contracts. 

 

*Building and construction include automotive mechanic; carpenter; electrician; locksmith; machinist; mason and plasterer; painter; plumber and steamfitter; refrigeration and air conditioning mechanic; roofer and tinsmith; and welder.
