I've been a supervisor for over 5 year. I found managing staffing levels one of the hardest things I've had to contend with. For those who are a supervisor or manager, what do you find is the hardest thing to contend with?

Ugh, yes, this is so true. This is one thing I contend with on a weekly basis between two of my staff members.
I try to admit when I don't know something. Though people come to me expecting me to know everything.
Not all supervisors want to be friends though. I know some of my staff I wouldn't be friends with outside the workplace, not insulting them or anything, but we just don't share similar interests.
But that doesn't stop me from being friendly, though
Interesting. I've never had that issue, and while I like my staff, I was always able to maintain that distance.
Depending on the reason. You can't watch and guide your staff every minute of every day.
