I worked at University of Northern Colorado full-time (More than a year)
Room and food covered. Staff is usually fun and relaxed. Easy job - really just living and hanging out with people. There were some good times had!
Summer training is always unorganized, and very "soft" in terms of what you learn. They could condense the two weeks into 3 days AT TOPS. You are ONLY allowed to support GLBTA, minorities, and other "socially disadvantaged" students. If you go to a church or have mostly white friends etc. They will find out and start witch hunting. (No, I'm not a Bible bumper) They make up fake jobs for students: Minority Advocates, Social Justices, etc. (Really just 19 year olds who took a 2 week class on racism) MapWorks: A huge wast of money to get you to cover the University in case a student goes awol or worse... Nobody does these honestly anyway... They can, and do fire you for ANYTHING. They can boot you out of your room and board within a few days, with no hesitation. It happens atleast 3-4 times a year. Really sad. (Obviously it is mostly deserved) Low pay. No freedom. It IS a 24/7 job. You are on call for anything and everything.
Advice to Management
Pay better to get better Hall Directors... They are all young and know very little about life outside of college. Most of them went from being an RA and right into "Higher Education Leadership Advocacy.. blah blah blah..." They usually pay the HDs garbage money (in comparison to all other schools), so when good ones come around for interviews, they never take the job.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at University of Northern Colorado (Greeley, CO) in March 2014.
I did a phone interview, and then three and a half hours of in-person interviews with various constituents. There were long gaps between stages but the follow up after each stage was quick.
