I would love to give this place a chance but they can't even fix their dumb website

I would love to take an interview and work for you guys but you can't even streamline your application process to me that shows poor effort and bad management so I'd say this is well deserved 1 star

Cons

Probably terrible management

Not worth it

Did not provide even close to enough job training. Did not teach how to us workplace systems, or even the important details of working on the job. Desk job primarily, dealing with customers, purchasing for residence activities.

Great teammates, confusing leadership

RDC is a place with great benefits and work hours. Management direction can be quite confusing and hypocritical. Friends and family usually get looked at first for advancement.

Residence

I took a leap and applied to this job. it has opened up so many doors for me and allowed me to connect with so many people that i otherwise would not have reached out to. it is a great place and job to do if you are looking to interact more and be involved on campus

Enjoyable workplace to start the retail industry

The management and entire team were very understanding about availability knowing we go to class, but it was easy to get to work as you could just start right away after class

Better have the right friends

You could get recognized for a lot of things here. Not kissing the right butt, not sucking up to the right people. But put in long hours and work harder than anybody else and it will barely be noticed. Take a look at the amount of people that have resigned in the last ten years. Take a look at the number of layoffs and cuts in order to build a new gym building and create positions for friends.

Productive workplace fast paced

While working the student association was good because I would be working the college students, on improving the college to make it a better place to be at. would've been nice to work with them longer but with being a college student while working with this was hard to balance out, but eventually it got easier to deal with. The enjoyable part of the job was running the events for the students, getting the feedback from the students as well to improve in the near future.

Pros

Free Lunches at meetings

Cons

Always on the job while at the college even when during class hours and studying.

Ensuring the safety of residences and property at all times.

Pros

Helping others

Cons

hours aren't flexible
