    I have been working at James Madison University

    Pros

    Working as an RA is a good opportunity to develop administrative, organizational, and interpersonal skills--if the management you are under allows for it.

    Cons

    Severely underpaid position relative to other public VA schools. As an RA, you still have to pay for full room and board. This includes your meal plan, which is obligatory.
    In addition, the hall directors and professional staff of residence life overestimate the career opportunities that come from working in ORL. This is good exposure if you wish to set yourself up on a low-income track, yes, otherwise, shape to your own end goals and get out as soon as it no longer works for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Properly advertise how much the position pays. A large number of RAs had no idea how much they were going to be paid all the way up to training.
