Question:
Does CA Scheduler schedule with criteria of  WEEK1OF5 run the first week every month?
Answer:
CA Scheduler criteria of WEEK1OF5  for a schedule will only run the 1st week when there are only 5 weeks in a month which are most months.   However in September and December of 2018 there are 6 weeks in those months.  The schedule will not run in September and December 2018.

You can use REPORT DATETRAN to verify keyword criteria of WEEK1of5.

Go to CA Scheduler Online:
3 REPORTS - Execute and view reports 
then 
5 DATETRAN - Criteria keywords for a given date 

then enter datetab (or the name of your default datetable) and 12012018 

COMMAND ===> 

Date Table: 
Date Table . . . datetab 
In Schedule . . 
In Job . . . . . 

Options: 
Starting Date . . . 12012018 (mmddyy/mmddyyyy/ddmmyy/ddmmyyyy) 
Duration . . . . . (days) 

here is the display that you should receive

For December 1, 2018, WEEK1OF6=YES  since there are 6 weeks for the month of December.
