Series Concept

Office Machine Technicians maintain, repair, and rebuild mechanical, electrical, and electronic office equipment such as typewriters, calculators, embossers, dictation equipment, addressing and folding machines, timestampers and related equipment.

Incidental to the main functions of repair and maintenance, incumbents may also maintain parts and supplies inventories; instruct equipment users in proper operation or in such simple maintenance tasks as cleaning, oiling, and minor adjustment; take service calls and establish work priorities; keep records; estimate repair costs; and train lower-level technicians.

The Office Machine Technician series consists of three levels: subjourney, full journey and lead worker/supervisor. The levels are distinguished by the breadth of repairs performed, the closeness of technical supervision received, and by the responsibility for supervising others.
