This article has been verified for the current PC version (2.6) of the game.

A job is where Pop.png Pops work to produce resources on planets. Jobs are divided into different strata, with one higher than the other. Most Jobs are created by Districts and Buildings and thus limited in number. Pops will automatically fill empty Jobs that they are capable of holding and will choose the job that will get the most out of their traits but priority can be set towards and away from specific Jobs to ensure they are filled before others. New Pops that are more suitable for a Job than the current Pop holding the Job will take it from it.

Job weight[edit]

Which job any specific pop takes is defined via a weighting system. It can be overriden by decreasing the priority of certain jobs, ensuring that certain job slots will be left empty.

Each job has a default priority. Higher stratum jobs always have higher priority to ensure they are filled first. Pop cat worker.png Worker and Pop cat simple drone.png Menial Drone pops will change jobs within the same stratum if their traits are changed, but higher stratum pops will not. It is possible to force a re-evaluation of those jobs by blocking and then re-enabling the jobs.

Species Rights and Living Standards:

  • Non-Mechanical pops that lack citizenship have a ×0.2 multiplier on nearly every ruler and specialist job. This appears to even affect cyborg pops in driven assimilator empires.
  • Academic Privilege living standard is a large multiplier on many research-focused jobs.
  • Pops that can take Job servant.png Servant jobs have the weight for all other jobs drastically cut.
  • Most slaves have around ×10 weight to most worker jobs. That drops to around ×2 if they could be Job servant.png Servants instead.
  • Battle Thralls have ×10 for Job soldier.png Soldier jobs.

Traits:

  • Highly specific bonus traits (like Thrifty.png Thrifty, Industrious.png Industrious, Trait traditional.png Traditional, etc.) give a ×1.5 weight multiplier to related jobs.
  • Very Strong.png Very Strong, Strong.png Strong and Weak.png Weak give a ×1.2, ×1.1 and ×0.9 to worker jobs.
  • Shackled and non-sentient robots have an ×2 weight to fill jobs fitting their traits. This is on top of the normal weight modifier for having the trait.
  • Trait primitive.png Serviles trait gives a ×1.5–2 multiplier to worker jobs.

Finally there are some very specific modifiers that are probably at fault for any discrepancies:

  • Pops with the Racket species flag have ×4 to work as Technicians.
  • Materialist.png Materialist (×0.1) and Spiritualist.png Spiritualist (×1.2) pop ethics give a modifier to preacher jobs.

A newly grown pop will automatically displace a pop if it has a higher weight than the pop currently occupying the job.

Regular empires[edit]

Regular empires have three strata. If a pop takes a job above its stratum it will be promoted to the higher stratum. If there are no available jobs of equal or higher Stratum the pop will become unemployed, slowly demoting in stratum and causing Mod pop happiness.png happiness penalties at most levels of living standards.

Subversive Jobs[edit]

High Crime, Deviancy or Unemployment can create planet modifiers that add Subversive Jobs. Individualist Pops will abandon Subversive Jobs if Pop cat ruler.png Ruler, Specialist Specialist or Job soldier.png Soldier jobs become available. All Subversive Jobs have negative output.
