Scheduler Jobs

If you are highly organized and would like to put this quality to good use in your work place, the position of SCHEDULER could be the right one for you.

What are Working Conditions for Schedulers?

Most schedulerswork for a company or other organization which deploys large numbers of personnel or moves large quantities of goods or equipment in a time-bound manner. All schedulers are people managers and most work with a good deal of autonomy.

Each type of scheduler has unique supervisory roles and chains of command:

  • Warehouse schedulers supervise warehouse workers and manager transport contractors and deliverymen.
  • Transport schedulers manage drivers directly and vehicle maintenance workers indirectly, through their supervisors.
  • Flight schedulers give directions to airline and airport managers.
  • Personnel schedulers give instructions to workers, and find alternative solutions when someone cannot or does not make a shift.
  • Events schedulers inform managers of what they have scheduled. If they work for a small firm, they may also make contracts, organize suppliers, and oversee workers

Schedulers have to have a thick skin, as complaints from people who are not satisfied with a schedule are inevitable and may be frequent. The scheduler has to juggle these complaints, making adjustments where feasible, and holding firm when a change is not feasible.

There is no special reward for on time performance, but the penalties can be high if schedules are not kept. Salary scales are, however, relatively generous.

What do Schedulers Do?

All schedulers are time managers, with responsibility for establishing schedules and ensuring they are met. Their specific duties differ according to what they are scheduling.

Transport scheduler

  • Manages the maintenance and movement of vehicles that deliver goods and packages
  • Creates daily and long-haul schedules for trucks and vans and their drivers

Flight scheduler

  • Determines each flight’s departure and arrival times, taking into account movement of all aircraft in an airline’s fleet, and open slots at departure and destination airports [Aircraft maintenance schedules and flight crew schedules are determined on the basis of the airline’s flight schedule.]

OR

Personnel scheduler

  • Assigns personnel to shifts, making sure there are enough workers at any given time and that shift rotations are equitable

  • Hold an associate’s degree or preferably a bachelor’s degree in engineering or business
  • Possess a certificate for the specialty of interest to you e.g., logistics, personnel management, hospitality
  • Have good planning, communication and problem-solving skills
