The resident assistant job is often 24/7; my workday consistently changed based on what both I and my residents needed. I learned time management and delegation, how to form personal bonds with my co-workers and the residents. When SF State has a full, Professional Staff, management is professional and exciting. However, the community I worked in lacked the proper amount of consistent supervisors to continually make progress in the community and with the staff. Regardless, my community was tight-knit and supportive of each other.
Flexible hours, personal relationships with co-workers and residents, positive environment.
Lack of consistent and permanent supervisors, lack of communication.
