So, for my needs, RA was great. I was an actor looking for well paid part time work that allowed me time off for auditions. So, that's what it was. I worked when I wanted and how I wanted. They have strict "being on time" standards and grooming standards, so I think as long as you can deal with that, you're fine. I didn't care because it was a requirement so I just did it. I showed up when I was supposed to, I did what was asked of me, etc. My good managers knew I was dependable and gave me additional responsibilities which I appreciated. I liked my co-workers for the most part. Folks usually were good matured and had fun at work. I think the big thing is its not consistent work. Certain times of the year there would be NOTHING, like you'd make maybe 85$ a week. So, I couldn't pay bills on that. I also felt like, since I was a good and hard worker, I wanted more recognition and advancement, and I didn't feel like that was available to me. I had managers who appreciate what I did very much, and that's nice, but it would have been nice if the big bosses in the office would have provided me an opportunity to earn more income, and give me more responsibility. I would have stayed with the company of that had happened.
Food while working, flexible schedule, good co-workers and managers, and you get to be at some cool NYC events.
Lack of work during parts of the year, grooming standards, they made you pay for your uniform, LONG hours at times, always being tired.
