The Interview
What to Expect

Lead Unit Supervisor interview candidates will meet with a small panel that includes the current Lead Unit Supervisor, the team supervisor, and possibly a member of another team that regularly works with Unit Supervisors to discuss how their skills and experience are a fit for the job. The interview will last about one hour, and will include some general questions as well as some that are specific to leadership experience and skills. They will also be asked to bring a BearFacts transcript to verify they meet the minimum GPA requirement.

Sample Interview Questions
  • Describe any previous supervisory, leadership or management experience that you would bring to the Lead US position.
  • Because the Lead Unit Supervisor does not have its own unit of RCCs, how would you go about maintaining a relationship with the RCCs?
