You really do have the potential to build great relationships with students, and if you are typically a shy person then this job will really cause you to break out of your shell and become good at speaking with people you may not typically speak too. It is a very rewarding job if you put effort into it.
Overall, my superiors were awful. I really felt like what most of the Resident Life Coordinators did was just sit around and gossip awfully. If your RLC didnt like you for some reason, then they would be really unhelpful when you needed help with some of the residents on your hall. Also there were some RLC's who were honestly just young and would get really get too caught up in gossip, even slandering other RA's. My RLC did happen to like me, but I saw how she treated the ones she didnt like. And my other RA friends would tell me things about their RLC that were no good.
Advice to Management
Only hire really mature RLC. The RLC can set the mood of the RA, who sets the tone of the actual residents.
