This article has been verified for the current PC version (2.7) 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.

Job weight

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 based on a weighting system 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 may take the job from it.

  • For Pop cat worker.png Worker, Pop cat simple drone.png Menial Drone and Pop cat complex drone.png Complex Drone jobs new pops will always take the job from a current pop if the new pop's weight is higher.
  • For Specialist Specialist jobs new pops will only take the job from a current pop if the new pop's weight is x1.5 higher.
  • For Pop cat ruler.png Ruler jobs new pops will only take the job from a current pop if the new pop's weight is x5 higher.

It is possible to force a re-evaluation of jobs by blocking and then re-enabling the jobs.

Regular empires

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.
