Supervision of Others

In addition to identifying the title(s) and number of positions supervised, describe whether the supervision is functional or administrative.

Administrative Supervision: Typically involves decisions or recommendations regarding hiring, promotions, salary adjustments, and terminations, as well as other supervisory duties. Administrative supervisors have either:

  1. Effective authority for all personnel actions; or
  2. Responsibility for formal recommendations on hiring, promotion, and pay rates.

Functional Supervision: Usually is limited to assigning and reviewing work and acting as a group leader. Functional supervisors may make suggestions on hiring, promotions, salary adjustment, and firing.
