Actual Behavior
Position hierarchy is defined as below;

    HR User XX_TOP
    Position XX_TOP_POSITION
           ________|_________
          |                          |
XX_MANAGER1          XX_MANAGER2
XX_POSITION1         XX_POSITION1'
          |                         |
XX_APPROVER1        XX_APPROVER1
XX_POSITION2         XX_POSITION2'
          |                          |
XX_BUYER1              XX_BUYER2
XX_POSITION3         XX_POSITION3'

HR user XX_APPROVER1 has 2 positions XX_POSITION2 and XX_POSITION2' assigned.

XX_BUYER1 > XX_APPROVER1 > XX_MANAGER1
XX_BUYER2 > XX_APPROVER1 > XX_MANAGER2
