A “job” is any and every piece of work on the AS/400.

There are two types of jobs:
- Interactive jobs
- Batch jobs

Interactive Jobs:

A job that begins when a user signs on to the system and ends when they sign off.
It is a job with interaction between the user and the AS/400, similar to a conversation ( a polite conversation!).
Input for the job is entered via the screen.

Batch Jobs:

A job that runs in the background.
They do not require input from the screen, but would read data from files.
They are generally jobs that use a lot of resources and are lower priority than interactive jobs.
Usually submitted by interactive jobs e.g. a program compile
