Equipment Operator I:
Under immediate supervision, this is the entry-level class in the Equipment Operator series and is expected to learn to operate the full range of heavy motor equipment and skilled work in the construction and maintenance of streets and wastewater and water distribution systems. Incumbents perform work under close supervision while learning job tasks. Incumbents entering the class are required to have little directly related experience. Generally, work is observed and reviewed both during performance and upon completion, and changes in procedures or exceptions to rules are explained as they arise.

Equipment Operator II:
This is the journey-level class in the Equipment Operator series responsible for the operation of all heavy motor equipment and skilled work in the construction and maintenance of streets and wastewater and water distribution systems. The classification is distinguished from the Equipment Operator I classification by the possession of two years’ increasingly responsible work in the operation of a variety of heavy motor equipment. Incumbents assigned to this class are expected to perform the full range of work assigned to this class, be fully proficient in the operation of all heavy equipment within the assigned division, and work with considerable independence and initiative.
