Abstract : This occupational survey was conducted to capture tasks related to F/RF-4 aircraft which are not covered in the 1975 occupational survey, and to verify the career ladder structure as established in April 1976, and modified in October 1978 to include the C-5 avionics aerospace ground equipment. The CAREER LADDER STRUCTURE section demonstrates that, for the most part, the jobs being performed by members of the C-shred and D-shred are appropriate to the type of weapons system maintained. Areas of overlap between the C- and D-shreds were limited to two generalized technical duty areas consisting of repairing and servicing test sets and stations, and performing avionics AGE general shop maintenance. The other technically related duty areas were specific to the weapons system assigned. Since the A-7D AGE equipment is being deleted from the active inventory, the D-shred jobs will be limited to the C-5 system in the future. Analysis of duty AFSC groups indicates that the vast proportion of time spent on the job by incumbents of the two shredouts are consistent with the present classification structure. No write-in comments by career ladder incumbents indicated dissatisfaction with the present specialty structure and the relatively high job satisfaction indicators were also supportive.
