The difference between "the job is being done" and "the job was being done" is really easy to understand, I hope so. When you say the job is being done, you mean that the action is happening in the present and we don't need to specify who's doing the job (passive voice). And when you say the job was being done, you mean that someone was doing the job in the past.
You need consider that when we say "something is/was BEING done" we put a lot of focus on the duration of the action. But when you say "something is/was done", we mean that we've got a result and something is finished.
