Dave – a higer grade does not necessarily equate to supervisor. There are alot of higher grades but not all are supervisors, I hope they are managers and leaders of something though! I would like to think the grade level reflects the level of responsibility of the position – but after 27 years in DC, I know grade assignemnt is not a perfect science. If you move outside the beltway I think the grade levels reset to a more logical balance.
Sometimes I think we confuse the positons of Supervisor/Manager/Leader, anyone at any grade can be a leader and a manager – only some can be supervisors.
