This is the journey-level classification in the Mechanic series responsible for performing technical and semi-skilled mechanic functions for District vehicle and equipment maintenance and repair, and for ensuring that vehicles and equipment are maintained in a safe and effective working condition. Incumbents at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new or unusual situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies. Work is reviewed upon completion for soundness, appropriateness, and conformity to policy and requirements. This classification is distinguished from the Senior Mechanic in that the latter provides lead direction to lower-level support staff and is responsible for more complex skilled mechanic maintenance and repair duties.
Management reserves the right to add, modify, change, or rescind the work assignments of different positions and to make reasonable accommodations so that qualified employees can perform the essential functions of the job.
