The Engineer II assumes responsibility for and participates in the general operation, preventive maintenance, and custodial care of assigned buildings and grounds along with the heating, cooling and ventilation of assigned facilities. Positions assigned to this classification have responsibility for directing a small staff (2-5) and for maintaining a smaller facility/building staffed with Maintenance Custodian and School Custodian IIs including the scheduling of work assignments, determining work priorities, and staff evaluations but do not have the authority to initiate other personnel actions as a supervisor. The Engineer II classification is part of a classification series comprised of four levels. Positions assigned to the Engineer II differ from Engineer I in that the Engineer II is typically assigned facilities of larger square footage (e.g. 70,001 – 180,000 sq. ft.) and typically require a larger number of staff to maintain the additional square footage. The difference between positions assigned to Engineer II vs. Engineer III is primary related to the size of the facility and the greater diversity of staff required to properly maintain and service the needs of the assigned building at the Engineer III level.
