Appendix.

Occupational Descriptions

Th e p r i m a r y purpose of preparing job descriptions for the Bureau's w a g e surveys is to assist its field staff in classifying into appropriate
occupations w o r k e r s w h o are e m p l o y e d under a variety of payroll titles and different w o r k ar r a n g e m e n t s f r o m establishment to establishment and
f r o m area to area.
This permits the grouping of occupational w a g e rates representing c o m p a r a b l e job content.
B e ca us e of this e m ph as is on
interestablishment and interarea comparability of occupational content, the Bureau's job descriptions m a y differ significantly f r o m those in use in
individual establishments or those prepared for other purposes.
In applying these job descriptions, the Bureau's field economists are instructed
to exclude working supervisors; apprentices; learners; beginners; trainees; an d handicapped, part-time, temporary, and probationary workers.

Exclusions
.Not all positions that are titled "secretary" possess the above characteristics. E x a m p l e s
of positions w hich are excluded f r o m the definition are as follows: (a) Positions wh ic h do not m e e t
the "personal" secretary concept described above; (b) stenographers not fully trained in secretarial
type duties; (c) stenographers serving as office assistants to a gr ou p of professional, technical,
or manage ri al persons; (d) secretary positions in wh ic h the duties are either substantially m o r e
routine or substantially m o r e c o m p l e x and responsible than those characterized in the definition;

those officials w h o have a significant corporate-wide policymaking role with regard to m a j o r

sonally on individual cases or transactions (e.g., approve or de n y individual loan or credit actions;
administer individual trust accounts; directly supervise a clerical staff) are not considered to be
"corporate officers" for purposes of applying the following level definitions.
