This chapter deals with classification systems in various types of business situations and government positions. It begins by discussing the three major types of classifications: rank in person, in which nonmanagerial workers are grouped into job classes by similarity of duties performed and everyone in the same classification gets the same pay rate, with some consideration for seniority and previous experience; rank in the corps, which is used in the military with commissioned officers where all officers of the same rank get the same rate of pay, with some getting bonuses for hazardous missions e.g. pilots and paratroopers; and rank in position, used in most government positions where the duties and responsibilities of the position and the qualifications required are used as the basis of pay rates (159-162).
Next the chapter discusses the Federal civilian service classification system, where there are a series of grades GS1 through GS18: the agencies analyze the positions and assign each an appropriate grade (162-163). Under ran
