A Correctional Maintenance Officer Manager is the managerial level of maintenance work in a correctional facility which involves the security, custody and supervision of adult inmates who perform maintenance work.  Employees in this class directly supervise Correctional Maintenance Officer Supervisors and indirectly supervise Correctional Maintenance Officers.

Employees in this classification receive managerial supervision from a Correctional Maintenance Services Manager II.  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 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.

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 Officer Manager is differentiated from the Correctional Maintenance Officer Supervisor in that the Correctional Maintenance Officer Manager has supervisory responsibility for Correctional Maintenance Officer Supervisors while the Correctional Maintenance Officer Supervisor has supervisory responsibility for lower-level Correctional Maintenance Officers.   The Correctional Maintenance Officer Manager is differentiated from the Correctional Maintenance Services Manager I in that the Correctional Maintenance Services Manager I has overall responsibility for an entire maintenance program.
