    Pros

    The department of Residential Life and Housing Services is very supportive. As a student staff you get a lot of benefits.

    Since the compensation is very attractive, the application process is very competitive. Connections sometimes trump qualifications.

    Pros

    Great team that was always willing to help. I felt comfortable asking questions. There was of course an hierarchy in the office but this was not overbearing.

    Cons

    The pay but got a raise! Another con at first was being asked to attend meetings but not being expected to speak or even take notes. So, sitting in meetings just to observe is a bit awkward.
