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.
