Good place to work. Great people and support staff.
Assistant to the Director of Graduate Admissions (Current Employee) – Lakewood, NJ – June 28, 2018
The benefits of working at GCU are that they will offer tuition remission for employees, spouses and children. Very high pressure. Great people to work with, but there is a definite lack of advancement for support staff.
Enjoyable experience to assist graduate students complete their degree. An institution that embraces scholarship, leadership, and character. The institution supports the advancement of education and is highly collaborative.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Lakewood, NJ – April 3, 2018
Indeed is making me write a review in order to move forward in this process. Did not work there long enough to give a fair review. Pay was fair, supervisor was fair, work hours were fair. There just weren't enough classes to teach in the summer as the few classes went to the veteran teachers.
Desk Assistant- Work Study (Former Employee) – Lakewood, NJ – December 24, 2017
I worked for two separate departments at Georgian Court simultaneously. A typical day at work entailed showing up on time and sitting at a desk and watching the door to see if there were any guests in the dorm hall for my DA position. For my phonathon position we came into work and started up our program and began calling constituents to try and meat our daily gift goal. Management at both jobs was amazing. They are more relaxed because they realize that we are students first, so they made working two jobs and going to college a little easier. The DA position was in no way difficult, the only downside was that unless people decided to visit, it was an isolated job. Phonathon on the other hand was better because there was never a dull moment, and everyone was nice to one another all of the time.
Secretary to the Office of the Provost (Current Employee) – Lakewood, NJ – March 30, 2017
place makes for a wonderful place to work. Staff and administration work very closely and very well together. Typical day includes email, multi-tasking, scheduling, etc.. Management is very accommodating when possible.
everyday at work there was something different. many people, very nice and welcoming, makes a person feel at home. I learned friendships, responsibility and respect. the management team was amazing and just great. their was nothing hard about the job and I enjoyed everything about it.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Lakewood, NJ – November 21, 2016
Doing research was an enjoyable and educational experience with the professors there. Several students had the opportunity to do research with each professor and the additional material you learn, and the experience one gains, is vital to the development of knowledge.
This was my work study job when I was in college in the student Life Department. I was like a deans assistant I answered phones, filed papers, hang flyers, go to meeting, fixed online website made copies, faxed papers more like clerical work.
Student (Former Employee) – Lakewood, NJ – September 29, 2016
It is a place where you are able to learn and teach at the same time. My co-workers are always nice. Sometimes you have to tutor your co-workers or you may need a co workers help to teach you something. The hardest part is when the student is not willing to cooperate.
A very nice school in need of a change in direction
Director (Former Employee) – Lakewood, NJ – April 1, 2016
You'd be hard-pressed to find an environment more friendly and kind-hearted than GCU. From the offer of employment, through new employee orientation, everything was handled great. The university was going through a massive change in leadership at the time I was hired and I fault many of the complications on that. They were also going co-educational, which created many obstacles.
The university definitely needs a change in enrollment management if it is going to survive in the long-term.
However, as a place to work, it is a lovely school with dedicated people and a truly delightful student body. While many of the students have remedial needs, they are open to learning and getting the help. With some structural changes, they could thrive. I just worry that their "declining location" will make it difficult to attract students.
It's a shame--such a nice place!!!
Free lunch, Great colleagues, Stunning campus, Polite students, Nuns
Poor operating cash flow, deteriorating town around gorgeous campus, supervisors not trained to be leaders even if well meaning.
