Those of you who have been supervisors: What was it like? Did you have to discipline people for coming in late?

    Yes, as a supervisor you virtually always simply enforce company policy. Whatever I did as a sup[ervisor, especially if I thought an employee would not like it, was to followed company policy EXACTLY. I knew that if the employee fought my decision, that decision would be carefully scrutinized by my superiors and I needed them to back me. The worst thing was the first time I knew I was going to fire someone the next day. That is MUCH harder than it might seem and I didn't get much sleep that night.

    yes, of course. that's an ordinary part of being a supervisor. just follow the instructions issued by HR on what to do and when to do it and you'll be fine

    You may have to discipline people for various reasons and review their performance.

    I was an Infantry Squad Leader my Team Leader's never showed up late. If it was one of their Soldier's usually a dumb a*s Private they'd do written Counseling on them. Sometimes if they were fuked up just push ups till their arms turned to Jelly.

    I have only supervised professionals who did not have a strict start time or end time. I did have to discipline for other behavior.  First a talk to find out if there was an underlying problem.  Depending on how that went the actions varied.
