Physical Plant Job Descriptions is a collection of job descriptions from a variety of institutions. While not intending to endorse a particular format or job, this section of APPAnet is to be used as a resource for reviewing or writing physical plant job descriptions.
All too frequently, plant managers fail to consider that their largest budget expenditures are for human resources. Job descriptions often fail to describe the job fully, and compensation decisions are often based upon obsolete information. An effective manager is one who provides flexible job descriptions that allow employees to respond to even the most unusual customer or public demands.
The primary user of job descriptions--the manager who designs jobs, selects employees, and evaluates performances--is the best source for information about positions. Please feel free to contribute to this area of APPANet by submitting your job description here.
