Overwhelming and overly expectant work culture (Student Residence Life Position Only)
Residence Assistant (RA) (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 November 2017
Very fun and convenient to work for residence life, but at the end of the day the cons far outnumber the pros.
You are essentially working and studying where you're living, all at once. You're expected to be very available and put work before school, family, and friends. Not many opportunities to escape and have personal time
Management was terrible, more often than not failing to follow up with reported concerns and incidents. Not very understanding of real life priorities, seem to think that there is no world outside of residence life and fails to understand external factors or why people would want to prioritize other things over residence life.
