Residence hall advisor teams and hall directors were surveyed to investigate the relationship of work values and actual and perceived similarity on these values with leader–member exchange (LMX) and team–member exchange (TMX). Demographic attributes were also investigated. Results showed that perceived similarity on the Protestant work ethic and preference for the work environment were positively related to LMX and that actual values and demographic attributes were not. TMX was positively related to actual similarity on several values but not to perceived similarity.
