Normal work days include going into the office and doing various tasks such as logging mail and packages, small "housekeeping" chores, and helping residents throughout our office hours with any general problems they may have. During our extended time as a Resident Mentor, we conduct hall meetings, hold programs for residents, and attend regular building and all staff meetings. The management is fair and the workplace itself can be fast-paced or slow-paced depending on the day and the activities scheduled throughout the University itself. I've learned how to better service people while working with Housing and I've built a higher sense of self esteem and work ethic as a Resident Mentor. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the different types of people that lived in my building. The hardest was working with a schedule that included nine other people and moving it to fit in other important school activities.
Worked 5 hours per week (with the exception of holidays and move-in/out days)
Duty days are 16 hours long and can be longer depending on if you have a long weekend that week
