A Correctional Maintenance Services Supervisor is the supervisory level of work directing the maintenance program at a correctional facility, which involves the security, custody and supervision of adult inmates who perform maintenance work. Employees in this classification are in charge of the facility's overall maintenance program and directly supervise lower-level Correctional Maintenance Officers.
Employees in this classification receive managerial supervision from an Assistant Warden, Warden or other administrative official.

When assigned to supervise outside maintenance jobs, employees are exposed to all types of weather conditions. The work may require moving objects weighing over 25 pounds. Employees may be required to physically subdue and restrain inmates during fights, riots and escape attempts.
