SUPPLY TECHNICIAN II
DEFINITION OF CLASS:
This is intermediate level work involving the receipt, labeling, storing, inventorying and issuing of parts, tools, equipment and/or supplies. Contacts include Department/Agency personnel who are supported by the supply operation and, to a much less extent, vendors, the primary purpose of which is to receive and provide straightforward information. An employee in this class offers little or no direct service or assistance to the public.
An employee in this class is responsible for responding to the supply needs of a requesting party, which often entails researching product lines, cross referencing parts/materials manufactured by two or more manufacturers, and providing recommendations for substitute parts/materials. Work assignments are of a stable nature and the employees are expected to work according to clearly defined standard operating procedures under general supervision of a supply supervisor. Work is intermittently checked for compliance with instructions. The complexity of the work is characterized by the existence of several related steps required in the researching, storing, and inventorying of a variety of parts and supplies. The scope of the work involves supply-related assignments that may require the use of a computer, materials handling equipment and/or other equipment. The employee works in a warehouse/storage facility environment that includes areas that are dirty, greasy, and dusty and outside on a loading dock with exposure to a range of weather conditions. The work requires an employee to keyboard and/or stand and walk for extended periods as well as to reach, climb, crouch, bend and otherwise move about and position oneself. Employees in many positions frequently lift and carry tools, parts, supplies and equipment that weigh about 50 pounds, sometimes more; they use hand trucks, dollies, hoists and other mechanical devices or leveraging techniques and/or get help from other workers for movement of heavier items. Some employees in this class independently move objects weighing 50 to 100 pounds or more by lifting, pushing, shoving, rolling, leveraging, etc., or using equipment for assistance. The work involves exposure to hazards associated with slippery surfaces, high stacks of pallets, toxic substances, corrosives and similar conditions.
