Title: Light Rail Way, Power, & Signal Supervisor
Company: Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority
Location: San Jose, California
Job Status: Full-time
Job ID: 146448
Your talent is the key to our success. We are hiring a Light Rail Way, Power, and Signal Supervisor.

Under direction of the Light Rail Way, Power, and Signal Superintendent, the Light Rail Way, Power, and Signal (WP&S) Supervisor provides supervision and management over wayside, power, signal, track, and passenger facilities maintenance and repair activities for the Valley Transportation Authority's (VTA) light rail system on an evening or grave shift, or as directed to ensure satisfactory supervision 24/7.

Distinguishing Characteristics
The Light Rail Way, Power, and Signal Supervisor assists the Light Rail Way, Power, and Signal Superintendent and other Supervisors, including the LR Power Supervisor, LR Signal Supervisor, and LR Track Supervisor with the oversight of the staff and WP&S facilities. The WP&S Supervisor oversees and provides direction to staff assigned to maintaining the signals, tracks, power, wayside, passenger facilities and related systems. The WP&S Supervisor facilitates the scheduling of staff and maintenance and repair work of VTA's light rail system, ordering the necessary equipment and tools, carrying out counseling and disciplinary activities, and providing general administrative support to the department.

This class is distinguished from the higher class of Light Rail Way, Power, and Signals Superintendent, in that the latter has overall responsibility for the WP&S maintenance and repair activities of VTA's light rail system. This class is distinguished from the other supervisory job classes in the WP&S Department in that the LR Power Supervisor, LR Signal Supervisor and LR Track Supervisor each have a specific unit of direct responsibility. The WP&S Supervisor, on the other hand, has general supervisory responsibilities and acts as the duty supervisor on shifts opposite the other Supervisors and in the absence of the Superintendent.
