Overall great experience!
Intern (Former Employee) – Residence Life – June 2, 2017
As a Resident Assistant, you are one of the most important faces of the residence hall. You have your own hallway of residents and cater mainly to them by creating engaging bulletin boards, brainstorming and hosting programs, and really just interacting with them on a regular basis. They should feel comfortable coming to you with any issues. There is middle management, who is constantly available to you for advice and feedback and upper management, who is less available because she handles administrative tasks. Supervision can help with an abundance of things, for instance, not knowing how to properly react to a resident's behavior or feeling extremely stressed out from working, classes, and extra-curricular activities. However, I would say that this job is rewarding because of all of the experiences you get to live through and all of the people you get to meet and work with.
Good compensation for college students
Technically working 24/7 if an issue arises
