I am not sure what the real question is, or if the question, as asked, has any benefit to the poster.

This looks like a hypothetical that the ALJ would offer a Vocational Expert.  If so, the VE would have given, or not given, the ALJ a list of specific jobs that meet the criteria specified by the ALJ and provided the name, Dictionary of Occupational Titles, DOT number, and the number of jobs available in the national and/or local economy. 

If the question is in response to a Hearing issue and if you were represented by counsel, your attorney probably wrote down the jobs offered for each hypothetical Residual Functional Capacity offered by the ALJ.  Ask him for the specific jobs the VE offered as proof there were jobs the applicant could perform with that RFC.

If you are trying to check the validity of the of the jobs the VE said met your RFC, you are wasting your time.  All you have the prove is that one of the three jobs offered did not meet the RFC offered by the ALJ.  If your attorney questioned any job offered by the VE, he should have questioned it at the Hearing or asked the ALJ for additional time to research that job. 

If, on the other hand, the writer is doing research on what he presumes will be his RFC, he is, again, wasting his time.  First, he has no idea what the ALJ will offer as hypothetical RFC’s and he has no idea which, of the hundreds of jobs in the national economy that might fit that RFC, the VE will choose. 

Having said that, http://www.vocrehab.com/ssaunskilled.html offers 137, unskilled, sedentary jobs.  Disability adjudicators often use https://www.onetonline.org/search/ and https://occupationalinfo.org/ to make sure there are jobs available in the national economy that an applicant can perform with the RFC the adjudicator has prepared.  In my opinion, searching these, and other sights, would be a total waste of time.  If the question can be reframed and a rational for the question given, readers may be able to give better responses.

My wife’s lawyer appealed her denial based on the jobs the ve recommended. This is kinda like a follow up question to that post 3 weeks ago. I have found a site with all the dot jobs. I also found a site not a gov link that breaks down the ve testimony. I just thought maybe it was a site that made it easier search for just ged “reasoning level 1” jobs. I just have to much time on my hands. We don’t expect to hear back from the appeals council until March or April. I guess as long as she gets the remand it doesn’t matter.

Lockdown I was referring to ged reasoning level 1 jobs.
It was a recent decision in September 2020. Albra vs the Commissioner in which the 11th circuit ruled the ability “to understand, remember and carry out short, simple instructions.”  Found the limitation corresponded to a GED reasoning level of one, which requires the ability to “[a]pply commonsense understanding to carry out simple one- or two-step instructions.”

What jobs have a ged reasoning of level 1 and are non production type jobs? I don’t see to many ged level 1 jobs on the list Disability Discussed posted. Most are production or clerks. The ve at my wife’s hearing only named 1 level 1 job and that job only had 4200 in the United States.

Thanks Lockdown. We definitely have to attack the RFC to see how the alj came up with occasional interaction with supervisor & coworkers. When she was on the job fighting with them.
