Work is usually supervised while in progress and fits a structured and established pattern. Generally, changes in procedure exceptions are explained in detail as they arise. Under the flexible staffing concept, positions assigned to the Investigator I class may reasonably expect to progress to the II level with training, experience, and satisfactory job performance.
