University of British Columbia Employee Review
Job Satisfaction Depends on Co-workers
While it is hard to balance your work life and the rest of your life because you live where you work, when you have great co-workers the job is amazing! However, if your co-workers are less passionate about community-building or do not want to bond as much, the job can be draining without much benefit. But definitely would recommend being a Residence Advisor to all as it can provide you with a sense of belonging on such a large campus.

Working as an RA, you have no private life. You’re never fully away from your job. It’s very stressful to not be able to separate your work life and personal life. Also, you soooo don’t get paid enough for the amount of work you’re doing. But! The people that you work with legitimately care about you. And they’re there for you. Having such a supportive community is amazing
Management is great, employees are great
Never off the clock, not paid enough
