Job Summary

 

DEFINITION 

To perform a variety of custodial duties to maintain the cleanliness and orderliness of assigned rooms, buildings and related Court facilities.

DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS:

Custodian (Introductory Period):  This is the entry-level (introductory period is equivalent to one-year probation) class in the Custodian series.  This class is distinguished from the Custodian level by the performance of the more routine tasks and duties assigned to positions within this series.  Employees at this level are not expected to perform with the same independence of direction and judgment on matters allocated to the journey level.  Since this class is typically used as a training class, employees may have only limited or no directly related work experience.  Employees work under immediate supervision while learning job tasks, but may receive less supervision as they become proficient with assigned duties.

Custodian:  This is the full journey level class within the Custodian series.  This class is distinguished from the Custodian in the introductory period by the assignment of the full range of duties.  Employees at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new or unusual situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies within the work unit.  Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the introductory period level.

This class is distinguished from the Facilities Supervisor in that the latter performs facility use coordination duties and exercises technical and functional supervision over custodial staff. 

SUPERVISION RECEIVED AND EXERCISED:

Custodian  (Introductory period):  Receives immediate supervision from the Supervising Custodian and may receive technical and functional supervision from management and supervisory staff.

Custodian:  Receives general supervision from a Supervising Custodian and may receive technical and functional supervision from management and supervisory staff.
