  • Actually, your code is OK. As @WaqasSarwarMCSE said, it seems to be an issue with your "xxxxxxxx3" literal. PS: please consider adding powershell tag to your question Feb 26, 2016 at 18:40

Wouldn't it be

$id = [GUID]("xxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx3")  // whatever your id is as string
Get-SPTimerJob -Identity $id | select Name, DisplayName
