GCU Public Safety is a toxic place to work
Public Safety Officer/Campus Safety Guard (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – August 28, 2018
At the period I worked for GCU Public Safety I witnessed more infractions on employee rights than any other place I have worked for. Managerial and Supervision staff treat their employees like garbage (yelling at them publicly or over the radio, getting in their face, making racist comments) while command staff turns a blind eye and continues to support them. Any complaint or comments made towards these actions are met with retaliatory action upon the complainant or commentator.
The command staff looks down on the Campus Safety Guards, who do all the work and are the true first responders, because they are not GCUPD or came from a PD department, especially if you are over a 34 waist size. They turn a blind eye to the treatment of the guard staff and fully support the managers and supervisors committing these infractions, even when reported to human resources.
The employees and students are the redeeming aspect to this department as they are some of the best people I have work with but unfortunately it is not enough to mitigate the anguish from the rest of the staff. The biggest pro's for GCU in general is the benefits, so if your looking for free schooling and decent health benefits I would try another department besides Public Safety and save yourself the pain and torment.
Free school, Good Health Benefits, Decent Pay
Toxic Environment caused by command, managerial and supervision, Pay does not reflect the work put in, Lots of stress due to enviroment
