What job evaluation methodology was used in this pay study?

MAG uses a proprietary job evaluation methodology called a Job Analysis Questionnaire (JAQ) to gather information about the nature of jobs.  Specifically, jobs are evaluated based on varying degrees of the following elements:

  • Data Responsibility
  • Judgment
  • People Responsibility
  • Complexity of Work
  • Assets Responsibility
  • Impact of Decisions
  • Education Required
  • Equipment Usage
  • Physical Demands
  • Communications
  • Math
  • Unavoidable Hazards
  • Safety of Others
  • Experience Required

The JAQ is completed for each position by the employee(s) who holds that position (i.e. the incumbent) as well as the supervisor who oversees the work performed by that position.  Together, the employee and supervisor serve as the subject matter experts for that position.  Ultimately, each job is scored based upon the combined responses to the JAQ.
