A Correctional Maintenance Services Manager II is the managerial level of work directing the maintenance program at a correctional institution which involves the security, custody and supervision of adult inmates who perform maintenance work. Employees in this class manage the institution's entire maintenance program and directly supervise Correctional Maintenance Officer Managers and indirectly supervise Correctional Maintenance Officers.

Employees in this classification receive managerial supervision from an Assistant Warden, Warden or other administrative official.  Employees may be assigned to day, evening, night or rotating shifts and are subject to call-in during emergencies and staffing shortages.  Work is performed in a correctional facility and employees are exposed to inmates who may be abusive and hostile and have access to potentially dangerous tools and equipment.  When managing outside maintenance jobs, employees are exposed to all types of weather conditions.  The work may require moving objects weighing over 25 pounds.

Positions in this classification are evaluated using the classification job evaluation methodology.  The use of this method involves comparing assigned duties and responsibilities of a position to the job criteria found in the Nature of Work and Examples of Work Sections of the class specification.

The Correctional Maintenance Services Manager II is differentiated from the Correctional Maintenance Services Manager I in the scope of managerial responsibility.  The Correctional Maintenance Services Manager II manages a maintenance program so large that it requires supervisory responsibility for Correctional Maintenance Officer Managers to effectively manage the overall work of the staff of Correctional Maintenance Officers while the Correctional Maintenance Services Manager I has full charge of a maintenance program and has supervisory responsibility for Correctional Maintenance Officer Supervisors.
