A Field Service Supervisor is a professional who oversees the work of field service technicians. They are responsible for ensuring that all work is completed in a timely and efficient manner, as well as providing support and guidance to the technicians.

If you are interested in becoming a field service supervisor, then here are some things that you need to know. 

What is a Field Service Supervisor?

A field service supervisor is responsible for the coordination and supervision of all field service technicians within their organization. They work with managers to ensure that all work is completed in a timely and efficient manner, while also ensuring customer satisfaction.

Field service supervisors typically have a background in engineering or another technical field, and must be able to manage staff and resources effectively.

What Does a Field Service Supervisor Do

Field service supervisors manage a team(s) of field service staff who provide routine services such as installation, maintenance, and repair. The supervisor is responsible for delegating work assignments to the field service staff and supporting them in providing excellent client service.

The supervisor's duties include handling customer inquiries and complaints while working with other departments to fix any field service issues. The budgeting process for the year falls on the supervisor, as well as making sure daily expenses stay within that budget.

Other responsibilities are specific to the company and its field. For example, some responsibilities of Superior Performance's Field Service Supervisors include:

What does it take to be a Field Service Supervisor?

Becoming a field service supervisor requires both experience and education. Most supervisors have a minimum of an Associate's degree in engineering or a related field, although some companies may require a Bachelor's degree.

Experience and Education

In terms of experience, most companies prefer candidates who have at least 3-5 years' experience working in the field service industry in a supervisory role. It is also important for field service supervisors to have excellent communication, problem-solving, and organizational skills.

It's been determined that 44.3% of field service supervisors have a bachelor's degree. In terms of higher education levels, we found that 5.3% of field service supervisors have master's degrees. Even though some field service supervisors have a college degree, it's possible to become one with only a high school degree or GED.

Other requirements

Other requirements vary by employer, but most positions at least require the ability to lift fifty pounds or more and familiarity with computers and finances. Some employers also prefer candidates who are able to operate machinery and travel as needed.

They must be able to work well under pressure and handle multiple tasks simultaneously. If you are interested in becoming a field service supervisor, then consider pursuing a degree or certification in engineering or a related field, and look for opportunities to gain experience in the field service industry.
