Applicants will be rated in accordance with the Office of Personnel Management Qualification Standard for Trades and Labor Occupations. Although a specific length of time and experience is not required, you must meet any screen-out element listed, and show through experience and training that you possess the quality level of knowledge and skill necessary to perform the duties at the level for which you are applying. Emphasis is placed on how you gained the quality of experience, not necessarily the length of time, and the required ability or potential to perform the job.

Experience refers to paid and unpaid experience, including volunteer work done through National Service programs (e.g., Peace Corps, AmeriCorps) and other organizations (e.g., professional, philanthropic, religious, spiritual, community, student, social). Volunteer work helps build critical competencies, knowledge, and skills and can provide valuable training and experience that translates directly to paid employment. You will receive credit for all qualifying experience, including volunteer experience. Physical Effort: The incumbent exerts moderate physical effort because the large vehicles driven and accompanying heavy loads are difficult to handle and maneuver, e.g., upper body strength must be used to turn the steering wheel. Numerous hand and foot controls are often used simultaneously, e.g., clutch, accelerator, gearshift, and levers. Dual braking systems must be manipulated to avoid jackknifing. Since vehicles operated are large, the cab is often located considerably above ground level; therefore, some effort is required when entering and existing the vehicle.

Performs work on hard surfaces and in work areas that require standing, stooping, bending and working in tiring and uncomfortable positions. Frequently lifts and carries items weighing up to 70 lbs. Moderate physical effort is used in operating hand and foot controls when operating materials handling equipment. Working Conditions: The incumbent typically operates a vehicle while sitting behind a steering wheel in an enclosed or covered cab. Vehicles operated may or may not be equipped with a heater and/or air conditioning. Occasionally, the incumbent will work outdoors or in an enclosed structure, e.g., when performing safety inspections, making minor emergency repairs; observing the loading/unloading of cargo, filling fluid levels, etc. Vehicles are operated in all types of prevailing weather conditions and (1) in congested areas of a supply depot/center where there is frequent vehicle, materials handling, equipment, rail, pedestrian, and bicycle traffic; and/or (2) in traffic and at highway speeds on public roadways during the day or night. There is exposure to dirt, grease, fumes, and noise. There is the possibility of life-threatening accidents, cuts, bruises, abrasions, and broken bones. Work may be performed inside/outside a warehouse which may be cold, damp or hot. May be exposed to injury from mechanical equipment, falling objects, shifting loads or collisions. SAFETY AND HEALTH REQUIREMENTS: Employee must be able to meet all medical requirements for the position. Employee is required to wear safety clothing and equipment appropriate for the job and work area where assigned, as directed by the supervisor. Types of required protective clothing and equipment include, but are not limited to, the following: eye, respiratory, and foot protection, protective clothing (gloves, apron, coveralls, etc.). Other types may be required as deemed necessary by authorized management officials.
