Open environment and able to learn new things every day
Resident Assistant (Former Employee) – Brookville, NY – July 13, 2016
Every day is a new day to learn anything new from dealing with any given incident, writing the documents required for any incident, or interactions with residents. Working with fellow resident assistants was great as everyone had a different personality, and there was a great blend of personalities for residents to get acquainted with. Working with professional staff members is simple, as there is a mutual trust system, so the more you were trusted the more you were able to do within the area, likewise, the less you were trusted, the less you would do. Everyone had an equal opportunity to do anything they wanted to do within the field. I enjoyed interacting with all the staff members and all the residents and getting to know them on a personal level, I like the respect and boundaries that were made as a resident assistant - anytime there was an issue, I'd just have to step out my door and look at the residents, and they would understand what to do. I didn't like at times how unorganized some events may be or how last minute things may occur, but it's part of the job, and it was a flexible schedule to do anything.
