Working Conditions: For the most part, work is performed in an enclosed facility, which is usually drafty, noisy, and exposes workers to toxic fumes, dirt, dust, and grease. Ventilation systems may be present to reduce the level of airborne hazards. The incumbent frequently stands on hard surfaces for long periods of time and crawls under vehicles and makes repairs on hard, sometimes damp surfaces. The incumbent occasionally performs repairs outside in all weather conditions. Vehicle fluids, such as battery acids and hydraulic fluids, may cause burns or irritate the skin, or be otherwise hazardous to health. The incumbent is frequently exposed to the possibility of cuts, bruises, shocks, burns, and strains.
Physical Demands: The incumbent frequently makes repairs and may assist other workers in making repairs while vehicles are overhead, and where parts worked on are often in hard-to-reach places. The incumbent is required to stand, stoop, bend, stretch, and work in tiring and uncomfortable positions for extended periods of time. The incumbent frequently lifts parts and equipment that weigh up to 20 pounds and occasionally lifts and carries items that weigh 50 pounds or more.

Effective, May 5, 2014, FBI employees will be precluded from moving to another position within the Bureau by means of promotion, reassignment or change to lower grade unless the new position is career enhancing (Headquarters to Field Offices or Field Offices to Headquarters) or offers a greater promotional potential than the position in which they are currently serving.
