Resident Assistant Interview

Resident Assistant

I applied online and interviewed at UCLA.

Interview Details – ORL tries to make their interview process better every year, but usually it consists of a paper application, a class/group interview, and an individual interview. Everyone who's interested fills out an online application (paper application), and they select who will move on to the class. The class is advised by current Resident Directors and Assistants, and you talk about the RA role and you do group presentations. From this class, Resident Directors and RAs can get a better understanding of who the candidates are. Everyone who's taking the class gets an interview. During the interview, you go through a round robin interview process. There are usually five tables, and each table has a Resident Director and RA, and they ask you questions pertaining to different aspects of the Resident Assistant job. In the past years, the topics were programming, teamwork, community, policy enforcement, and self awareness. Everyone takes turns at each table, so you'll get a chance to answer questions for each topic.

Interview Question – When was a time you enforced policy?   Answer Question
