ARC Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 18, 2018
I loved working at Grand Canyon University! The employees and student workers I worked with were all amazing people. The school is a beautiful place in the middle of downtown Phoenix, and being a part of the daily tours of prospective students really made every day special.
Great people, great work environment, belief in upper management
University Counselor (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 16, 2018
GCU is the happiest career I have had. The work life balance they promote, coupled with their desire to see individuals and teams grow is outstanding. Given my particular job, University Counselor, it can be stressful but that is in the nature of the job and not due to the employer.
Qualitative Researcher (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – April 11, 2018
My dissertation chair was extremely helpful and assisted me during the iterative process of completing my research. The program is beneficial to professionals looking to obtain an advanced degree while juggling work and family responsibilities.
I have worked as a student intake specialist for the past 2 years and I have really enjoyed my time at the University. The position is extremely low stress and you meet a ton of great people. The compensation is well exceeds my last job working as a consultant. I would definitely recommend GCU to anybody looking for a long term stable employer.
good salary and benefits
Even though you have assigned parking having to deal with traffic is not fun.
Student Activities Coordinator (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 9, 2018
GCU does not value diversity, nor does it value diversity programming. It is a hostile environment for students, faculty, and staff of color. Despite it being a Christian institution who should be focused on inclusion, diversity, and reconciliation, it is nothing more than a business hoping to stay out of the public eye for incidents on campus that continue to create a hostile environment for people of color.
Student Teacher Evaluator (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 9, 2018
GCU is an excellent institution that holds student success as its highest priority, and one way this is achieved is by the excellent care it provides to employees. I am only a part-time, remote employee, and I just got a call from someone in Phoenix asking if the recent onslaught of winter storms has left me with any personal or professional needs! This is just one example of the way GCU encourages community and shows regard for even the smallest cog in the university wheel. Communication with supervisors is excellent and every concern or question I have brought up has been addressed and answered quickly and completely. A truly wonderful place to work!
Senior Adjunct Chair, College of Doctoral Studies (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 7, 2018
I enjoy working with doctoral learners and the undergraduate learners the most. Zoom meetings help facilitate communication with dispersed doctoral learners and enable just in time learning. DC Network contains a wealth of information which supports faculty and learners.
Undergraduate learners are fun to interact with in class and the learning materials are of high quality and enable good learning practice during class in short periods. This helps with preparation time and also grading large quantity of work.
Student interaction & coaching
Amount of time required to grade and give substantive feedback
University Counselor III (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 6, 2018
This is a sales position. Federal regulations prohibit incentives or raises based on enrollment, but you will be disciplined for not meeting enrollment expectations. Expectations will increase from year to year, whether you want a "promotion" or not.
Fun environment-literally playing games and dress up, casual dress, great benefits
management changes formulas for leads/prospects, but still holds employees to same standards. Move up or move out mentality.
Junior Counselor (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – March 5, 2018
I work part-time and it is a great place to work. I enjoy going in and being able to work independently calling inquiries and students. They work with your school schedule to make it an easy, smooth experience.
