    I worked at Campus Living Centres part-time

    Pros

    Rewarding job when connecting with students and making a difference in residence. Very flexible hours. Great way of gaining leadership experience and social skills

    Cons

    Management is extremely incompetent, lack social/leadership skills, degrade employees and most importantly information is NEVER communicated effectively throughout the residence. Management is often late for scheduled meetings and shifts while reminding employees to be on time. Minimum wage Dealing with drunk thugs consistently Known as "cops" by everyone

    Advice to Management

    Work on being leaders and not bosses. Inspire those under you, not degrade them. Be mindful that many students under you have more life skills and management experience than you. Lastly, lead by example and learn to COMMUNICATE.

    I have been working at Campus Living Centres full-time

    Pros

    Can work independent. Company is slowly growing. Your ideas have a chance at becoming real policies and practices. You can make a meaningful contribution if you apply yourself.

    Cons

    No feedback on performance. Difficult to know if you are meeting expectations. Little to no, supervision. Some corporate staff are difficult to work with and lack interpersonal skills.

    Advice to Management

    Set corporate goals and cascade down through departments so that everyone is on the same page.

    I have been working at Campus Living Centres full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I like working here because I'm in a position of respect, and I am responsible for many things. The pay is satisfactory, I love building relationships with the students.

    Cons

    No training is provided, managment is typically annoyed when you ask for direction, my voice doesn't get heard by management, and holds no weight. I have self trained in my position, and find that in many cases I'm picking up the slack from management not completing their tasks.

    I have been working at Campus Living Centres part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The coworkers The comprehensive training in things like SafeTALK, LGBTQ matters, CPI, fire safety, WHMIS, etc. Dealing with sensitive matters like sexual abuse and suicide (You could really make a difference in someone's life)

    Cons

    Always being on-call Having to deal with idiot residents who behave like children instead of college students Dealing with sensitive matters like sexual abuse and suicide (After a while, depending on what you're like, this could wear you down emotionally, psychologically)

    Advice to Management

    Personally, my manager has an open door policy and doesn't keep anything from us if we ask, so communication is good there. I guess I'd say keep it up.
