    Former Employee - Resident Advisor in Fairfax, VA
    Former Employee - Resident Advisor in Fairfax, VA

    I worked at George Mason University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They understand that your responsibilities as a student (academics, not extracurriculars) come first before the job.
    Free housing (the main reason why most people take the job)

    Cons

    Opening and closing is always a mess, they always try a new method of running things each semester, it just leads to more chaos and confusion among the staff.
    Different supervisors have different sets of expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the upper level management (e.g. not resident directors or area coordinators) more involved with the RAs, didn't know any of them as they never interacted with us beyond formal greetings.
