Class Specifications
A "class spec" (classification specification) is basically a generic position title under which a number of jobs can be categorized. These classifications, or groupings, are based on the core job responsibilities listed in a Position Description Questionnaire. A class spec is not a job description, but a generic listing of job duties developed for all classifications.

We provide compensation information on all 450+ City of Dallas positions, including subsets for differing qualifications. Data is effective as of February, 2007. All data is annualized based on a 2080 hour work year. All data is in US Dollars. Classification Specifications may be found by clicking on the title link on the Survey Data page, or on our Classification Specification page. We update our survey data biannually.
