What is it like working as a Resident Assistant?
Resident Assistant in Knoxville:
"A Memorable Experience."
Pros: Being able to care for others who cannot always help themselves. Every day is a challenge, but seeing my residents smiling faces when I come in to work knowing they depend on me as the one who will oversee their day makes it a pleasure to undergo all the strenuous duties I perform.
Cons: Not getting to spend more time with the residents and not getting to talk to them because I have so many other things to take care of. Dishes, serving 3 meals, washing and drying laundry and putting it away, taking out the trash. It's all so time consuming that it takes me away from them.
