Abstract : Supervisors in all commands rated aircraft mechanics on overall job performance and on 65 work-related traits. Trait predictions of overall performance were made. Interpretations involved comparisons with previous findings obtained from ratings on administrative airmen. The analyses added confirmation in a different career ladder of most of the administrative ladder findings and suggested that there are some areas where the interpretations cannot be generalized from one work situation to another. It was concluded that any supervisor should be able to make this type of rating if given opportunity to observe the man. Particular attention should be given to the opportunity of supervisors to observe men. (Author)
