The Analysis of Rates of Naval Compensation by the Use of a Structured Job Analysis Procedure.
Harris, Alma F.; McCormick, Ernest J.
The study deals with the experimental application of a structured job analysis procedure to enlisted and officer billets in the Navy, with particular reference to its potential use in relating naval compensation for billet incumbents to compensation for civilian jobs with similar characteristics, and in assessing its utility for allocating naval billets to pay grades. The Position Analysis Questionnaire was used to analyze 607 enlisted and 249 officer billets in the study. Comparisons made between the naval compensation for the billet incumbents and the civilian job values revealed that naval compensation was systematically and substantially lower than civilian employees compensation on jobs with corresponding characteristics. An analysis of PAQ data as the potential basis for the allocation of billets as pay grades reflected reasonable promise for such use in the case of enlisted billets, but not in the case of officer billets.
