Distinguishing Characteristics
Account Clerk I - This is the entry level class in the Account Clerk series. This class is distinguished from the journey by the performance of the more routine tasks and duties assigned to positions within this series. Employees at this level are not expected to perform with the same independence of direction and judgment on matters allocated to the journey level. Since this class is typically used as a training class, employees may have only limited or no directly related work experience. Employees work under immediate supervision while learning job tasks.
Account Clerk II - This is the full journey level class within the Account Clerk series. This class is distinguished from the Account Clerk I by the assignment of the full range of duties. Employees at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new or unusual situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies within the work unit. Positions in the Account Clerk II are normally assigned such tasks as posting, adding, computing and recomputing, comparing financial data or statistical information related to accounting operations. Incumbents are expected to solve routing problems without assistance. Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the entry level.
This class is distinguished from the Senior Account Clerk in that the latter is responsible for more complex duties such as oversight of assigned functions such as accounts payable, business license and purchasing.
