    I worked at University of Florida part-time (more than an year)


    Being a Resident Assistant is a great way to gain leadership skills and make a lasting impact on students. Fellow RAs become like family as you work together to make your hall great. My favorite part was getting to know the students on my hall and planning programs for them on a regular basis. Cookie parties, movie nights, and study sessions don't feel like work, but you're getting paid to do it! Not to mention, you get paid to do a job from home, which is great most of the time.


    Being an RA can be challenging because you do not have a set number of hours you work per week, so sometimes duty calls at the least convenient times. For instance, if there is an emergency and you are in the hall, you have to respond even if you are busy studying or trying to relax. In other words, most work days end when you go home, but sometimes it feels exhausting when you get home and THAT is work. Another challenge is having to enforce housing policy with unruly and/or drunk students (which can happen often). Also, training happens every single semester you work, which is mostly boring and annoying because it cuts into your winter or summer break times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resident Assistants did not receive nearly enough benefits when I was an RA. Most schools give RAs: free housing, payment bi-weekly, a parking space, meal plan, and sometimes more. RAs at UF had to pay for housing, were paid bi-weekly, and had a partial meal plan. Fortunately some of that has changed, with RAs getting free housing now. Also, they should re-think how RA interviews are conducted, because there are many students who would make great RAs who are wait-listed, versus some who get the job and are HORRIBLE RAs.
