Incumbents are assigned to the Appraisal Division of the Office of the Assessor and report to Supervising Appraiser II crew leaders or are assigned to a technical section such as the Assessor’s Standards and Training Section. This classification is distinguished from the next lower class of Appraiser I in that the latter is the entry-level, trainee classification in the Appraiser series, the incumbents of which perform real property appraisal functions in a training capacity and under close supervision. This classification is distinguished from the next higher class of Appraiser III in that incumbents in the latter class perform appraisal functions with respect to commercial and industrial properties, as distinguished from residential and rural properties.
