    Resident Assistant Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at West Chester University.

    Interview

    There are about 5 panel interviews, with usually 4 RDs/GAs conducting the interview and 5 people being interviewed. The interviewers conduct these interviews back to back so many can seem disinterested in your answers, thus having a relevant and memorable answer is quite helpful.

    Interview Questions

    • What are some of your concerns with working as a Resident Assistant (especially in regards to the work/school/life balance) and how will you handle those if hired?   Answer Question
