Former Employee (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ONMarch 29, 2016
Pros: Great people.
Cons: No long term plausible plan.
With change in management over the past few years at the top level and the university being in financial crisis the morale of the staff is poor. Staff are either being dismissed or jumping ship. It's a bit tragic actually.

Working as a Residence Building Adviser was a very fun and hardworking job. The position required people who were enthusiastic about Brock University and wanted the students who live in Residence to get the best experience possible, this to me was the selling point to apply for the position, as a student who lived on residence I wanted to make the most of my time on residence and make sure that other students who were like me and living on campus got the best experience possible. As an Building Adviser my job was to plan and organize monthly events that students that live in residence could attend and have fun at, my job also entailed listening to the students and what problems they might have with residence and taking them to Board of Residence and making them the aware of the issues that students faced. This position enhanced my leadership skills, as I was someone who took a leadership position in the residence so that the other students who have a great year.
