A lot of changes in a different direction
Enrollment Counselor (Current Employee), Tempe AZJuly 21, 2014
Pros: free education from a accredited school.
Cons: lack of job security
The company overall isn't a bad one but at the end of the day a position as a enrollment counselor is still a sales position and not a customer service position as described to me. currently the company is in a state of flux regarding it's expansion and as an employee we have no idea where our positions will be next year.

A New Beginning
Technical Support Representative (Current Employee), Phoenix, ArizonaJuly 16, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, helping my co-workers and customers
Cons: management, pay is low, hours are low, federal work study
I have worked for Grand Canyon University for three years as a technical support representative. When I first began my first semester at Grand Canyon University as a freshman, I was ecstatic to be apart of their IT department. I was able to assist students, staff, and faculty with issues they were not able to handle on their own. I enjoyed helping our – more... customers with their issues, and I enjoy knowing that I have helped someone to be successful in their classes so they can achieve what they are striving for in the future. However, the management has changed quite a bit and I have not been able to enjoy myself at this job since I transferred back to the school from Arizona State University. I get along with my co-workers and my customers very well and I know how to be successful under pressure, but the management has a lot of favoritism and my co-workers and I do not feel like we are apart of a family anymore and we do not get paid enough to be treated unfairly. The management is the hardest part of my job but other than the management, the pay, and the limited hours you can work, this job changes peoples' lives. – less

Student Worker - Enrollment Support Representative (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZJuly 11, 2014
Pros: in the city, flexible with schedules
Cons: short breaks and certain amount of hours as student worker
A typical day at work consists of a increase amount of work with student's applying, transferring information, updating information and staying consistent with percentages for whom the leads are being distributed to. I've learned so many things working with CRM, Excel, and Word. Creating advance finds from data bases. I love my co-workers they are very – more... fun and enjoyable to be around we are able to talk and still be very productive in our work. The hardest part of the job is when there is a decrease amount of work. Most enjoyable part about the job is there is not stress from the manager she want you to be productive but will not hassle you about a project that needs to get done she just checks in to see where your at. – less

Terrific Academic School
International Enrollment Counselor (Former Employee), Tempe, ArizonaJune 25, 2014
Pros: tuition benefit
Cons: heavy numbers based
The most rewarding part of working at Grand Canyon was knowing I was making an impact of students over the phone whom wanted to go back to school for a purpose. I enrolled Teachers, Business minded entrepreneurs, and I even enrolled International students whom wanted to complete their degree. Grand Canyon is an excellent school which stands by their – more... four pillars of education as well as their mission statement. They are involved in the community like no other school I have attended, they really do practice servant leadership, instead of preaching it. Even after I was longer working there I completed my Bachelors and my Masters with them, because I believe in their vision of this school as well as the direction it is headed. GO LOPES! – less

Enrollment Counselor, College of Doctoral Studies (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZMay 30, 2014
Pros: half days
Cons: no time off
On a typical day I at Grand Canyon consisted of building relationships and selling the PHD, EDD and DBA doctoral programs to perspective candidates. I learned time management, setting goals and working hard to achieve them. Being consistent mentally with a must win attitude was the key to success. A coaching oriented organization, you where constantly – more... coached on how you can develop and perform your job better. The hard part of the job was not being able to take days off and still be able to meet your sells goals. The most enjoyable part of the job was the half days as a reward for the hard work we put in. – less

Public Safety Officer (Former Employee), Phoenix, ArizonaMay 24, 2014
Pros: professional
Cons: limitation in hours
A typical day as a public safety officer with Grand Canyon University is a slow, but assured day. A lot was picked up with the job and my overall performance. Outside of discipline comes patience, honor and integrity. Management was tight and very professional, a slip could cause chaos. Co-Workers were top notch man and women who served their country – more... very well, then went on to protect young students. The hardest part of the day was being in booths for numerous hours. Most enjoyable part of the day was the respect level that was received from officers and students. – less
