  • I was a supervisor. I delegated tasks and then took the heat when they weren't done. The boss is more like a manager and that is the person that you report too. Most bosses have a boss themselves.

  • My husband's a boss. He manages the whole business while supervisers are in charge of smaller parts of the business.

  • A supervisor manages or 'supervises' a group of people. A boss, or manager, may manage more than one group of people.

    A supervisor has input on reviews. A boss/manager does the reviews.

    A supervisor makes more money than an employee. A boss/manager makes more money than a supervisor.

    A supervisor has some responsibilities. A boss/manager no doubt has more.

    A supervisor may interview people...sometimes. A boss/manager always has the final say.
