SPWebApplicationProvisioningJobDefinition error

I got this error when I was trying to remove a web application from IIS. ( In Operations tab :  Remove Sharepoint from IIS Web site ) .

An object of the type Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.
SPWebApplicationProvisioningJobDefinition named “Provisioning
********-****-****-****-************” already exists under the parent
Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebService named “”. Rename your
object or delete the existing object.

To solve the issue from the Operation tab go to the Timer job definitions list and delete the related Provisioning or Unprovisioning timer job. You will also see that the name of the related web application is in the bracket.
