Residential Service Advisor (Former Employee) – Northridge, CA – May 14, 2012
Answering residents questons while available, staff meetings, one one meetings with residents, assisting, facilitating and attending informational and fun events, duty, rounds of exterior and interior, judicial reports, knocking on a residents door for several things, including policy violation, signature needed, wishing happy birthday and cupcakes, etc.
I've learned so much at this position. I've learned to be a leader and example to my peers through my grades and actions. I learned how to manage my time a little better than I had perviously. I learned how to plan and execute events and how to stick to a budget.
Management was very great. Everone was so willing to help with our academic, collegiate and personal growth.
The hardest part of the job was being a student and a Resident Advisor at the same time. Although I knew that I was both and could distinguish the two, my residents sometimes would knock on my door at odd hours, not realizing I needed sleep and had homework to do.
The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people and friends in my co-workers, helping my residents overcome adversity and seeing them grow, me growing more as an individual, creating posters, flyers and other things for my residents.
