    Pros

    Learned a lot of community development, conflict resolution, program planning, budgeting, and time management. Great coworkers, ability to hire own student staff.

    Cons

    MAJOR time suck, politics of working for a university department may be frustrating at times - a lot of red tape.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to Graduate Assistant and RA suggestions more, they have a thumb on the pulse. Be more aware of the big picture.

    • I don't really think the interview questions are difficult, just some general questions about your classes.   Answer Question
