    The GS-07 salary range starts at $45,972.00 per year.  

    If you are a new federal employee, your starting salary will likely be set at the Step 1 of the grade for which you are selected.  

    To qualify, you must have at least one year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-05 level or higher in the Federal service. 

    Specialized Experience: Specialized experience is performing industrial engineering tasks of limited scope and difficulty which are screened by a higher grade engineer.

    Carefully read the following statements A through G which outline the Basic Requirements for all engineering positions in the Federal Service. (A) Degree: Professional Engineering. To be acceptable, the curriculum must be in a school of engineering with at least one curriculum accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) as a professional engineering curriculum. (B) Degree: Professional Engineering including differential & integral calculus & courses (more advanced than 1st yr. physics & chemistry) in 5 of the following areas: statics, dynamics; strength of materials; fluid mechanics, hydraulics; thermodynamics; electrical fields & circuits; nature & properties of material (relating to particle & aggregate structure to properties) & any other comparable area of engineering science or physics such as optics, heat transfer, soil mechanics, or electronics. (C) College level education, training and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the physical & mathematical sciences underlying professional engineering, and (2) a good understanding both theoretical and practical, of the engineering sciences and techniques, and their applications to one of the branches of engineering, evidenced by current registration as a professional engineer by any State, the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico. (D) College level education, training and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the physical & mathematical sciences underlying professional engineering, and (2) a good understanding both theoretical and practical, of the engineering sciences and techniques, and their applications to one of the branches of engineering, evidenced by successfully passing the Engineer-in-Training (EIT) examination. (E) College level education, training and/or technical experience that furnished (1) a thorough knowledge of the physical & mathematical sciences underlying professional engineering, and (2) a good understanding both theoretical and practical, of the engineering sciences & techniques, and their applications to one of the branches of engineering, evidenced by successfully passing the written test administered by the Boards of Engineering Examiners in the various States, D.C., Guam or Puerto Rico. (F) College level education, training and/or technical experience -- evidenced by successful completion of at least 60 semester hrs. of courses in the physical, mathematical, & engineering sciences & in engineering that included the courses specified in Option B above. Courses must be fully acceptable toward meeting the requirements of a professional engineering curriculum. (G) College level education, training & or technical experience evidenced by successful completion of a curriculum leading a bachelor's degree in engineering technology or in an appropriate professional field (e.g., physics, chemistry, architecture, computer science, mathematics, hydrology, or geology), AND at least 1 year of professional engineering experience acquired under professional engineering supervision & guidance.

    The GS-09 salary range starts at $56,233.00 per year.  

    If you are a new federal employee, your starting salary will likely be set at the Step 1 of the grade for which you are selected.  

    To qualify, you must have at least one year of specialized experience equivalent to the GS-07 level or higher in the Federal service. 

    Specialized Experience: Specialized experience is performing independent industrial engineering, modeling, and simulation studies/surveys of projects analysis and modeling for recurring assignments which gradually increase in difficulty and complexity designed to increase as well as broaden knowledge of industrial engineering, modeling and simulation pertinent to the organization.

    You will be evaluated for this job based on how well you meet the qualifications above.

    We will use a method called Category Rating to assess your application.  Here’s how it will work:

    • You will be scored on the questions you answer during the application process, which will measure your possession of the following competencies or knowledge, skills, and abilities:

    GS-07...

    1. Knowledge of basic principles, concepts, and methodology of an Industrial Engineering, and skill in applying this knowledge in carrying out elementary assignments, operations, or procedures.
    2. Knowledge of the organization's programs and operations.
    3. Knowledge of commonly used project management practices, procedures, regulations, precedents, policies, and guides that specifically pertain to the work assigned.
    4. Ability to work independently on routine or continuing assignments.

    GS-09...

    1. Knowledge of conventional industrial engineering concepts in order to assist in the
      development and analysis of technical specifications and standards for assigned commodities.
    2. Skill in written and oral communication.
    3. Knowledge of applicable technological principles, i.e., industrial processes; production techniques; quality control measures; salient characteristics and properties; and needs peculiar to Government customer usage for assigned commodities.
    4. Knowledge of GSA's policies, regulations and procedures for assisting in the composition and
      maintenance of Government specifications.
    • Your answers to the questions will be used to place you in one of three categories:  Best Qualified, Well Qualified, or Qualified [If the use of 4 categories is justified, adjust verbiage].
    • We will verify your answers to the questions in your resume.  If your resume doesn’t support your answers, we may lower your score, which could place you in a lower category.
    • Within each category, veterans will receive selection priority over non-veterans.

     
    We will assess your application to make sure you:

    • are eligible to apply, e.g., a recent graduate; and
    • meet the minimum education and/or experience requirements, which are described in the Qualifications section  

    If you meet the criteria above, you will be referred to the selecting official.  Veterans will receive selection priority over non-veterans.
