I tried getting this to work for a long time, without success. Some of
the documentation I found implied that non-root users can run the job
monitor, and the benifit to this is the kill options on jobs is removed
=66rom the menu.

Doesn't work. You _can_ run the job monitor as a non-root user, and it
_does_ remove kill from the menu, but the files that contain the data
are owned by root so the job monitor displays no information.

Your best option is to look into third-party applications like aptare.
We ended up just living with the fact that operators had the potential
to kill jobs and just made sure they understand the importannce of not
doing that.
