    "Residence Life Staff Member (Not a reflection of the institution as a whole)"

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Brock University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Getting to know students and resources around campus.
    -Working with diverse group of people
    -Room for personal growth as a student

    Cons

    -Some rules for students are outdated and not realistic for the real world.
    -Students are treated like children by management and even dons as well.
    -Essentially a 24/7 job with little time off especially living with students (either on a floor or in a court).
    -Pay is less than minimum wage if all hours are counted together.
    -Requires that you must pay for full meal plan if you do not request traditional style living
    -Requires you to turn a blind eye to certain things in order to not have paperwork all the time and to manage your school life on top of staff life.

    Advice to Management

    -Stop micromanaging staff members
    -Have more meaningful joint meetings rather than something that could be sent in an email
    -Make students want to choose residence again by not treating them like children. Many left home and don't need RLS to be treating them like children
    -Get rid of unnecessary and outdated rules.
