Per diem work
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 14, 2018
Work on a per diem basis. Always by myself so I really can't say much about GCU as a "place" to work. That's all I have to say. I will keep typing words because you won't let me move on from this page until I say more, but I have no more to say.

Great University
Phoenix Arizona - Doctoral University Counselor (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 14, 2018
The leadership was cut throat. It's a great university and the academics are riguous. The admissions department was cut throat sales all day everyday. If you couldn't meet the numbers on a month to month basis you would be fired. Great University and culture but the sales portion was poorly ran.

Pros
Free tuition

High standards for little pay

low quality for-profit educational institution- profits over students
Faculty Supervisor of Student Teachers (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAJune 12, 2018
Top-down management. Profits over student welfare. Poor educational value. College of Education is a revolving door of poorly trained staff. This leads to high student frustration. Innovation and initiative is discouraged among faculty. Adherence to top-down arbitrary rules is high priority.

Summaty
Computer Technician (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 11, 2018
I worked at GCU technical support. This is great for students who are looking for their first work experience because it provides great customer service experience. The pay was extremely low, but other than that it was a great first job trouble shooting a system that you would have to use for your own assignments.

Best job

working intramurals was probably one of the best jobs that I have ever come across. IT was a very relaxing and fun environment when working. Couldn't have asked for much more

Love gcu
University Counselor - College of Business (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 11, 2018
I absolutely love working for GCU. Such a great company to work for everyone is very passionate about GCU and enjoys being a part of the growth. It is a very stressful environment at a University counselor due to meeting quota. Management could use additional training.

Poor treatment and culture
ENROLLMENT SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 8, 2018
All about numbers and not the training or the individual. A significant number of managers came over from University of Phoenix which changes the caring nature of the company. Turned into cut-throat, who knows who, and how can we get people to reach unrealistic goals to hit significant growth margins.
Pros
Free Education
Cons
Culture, Cut-Throat, Poor Culture

Gcu
IT Help Desk/Desk Side Support Technician (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 5, 2018
GCU does a great job of hiring on students straight out of school. They have a lot of opportunity for promotion within the company.Pay is pretty low but its a good work environment.

Private Christian University
Professional Support (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 5, 2018
Grand Canyon was a great place to work because of the people. Pay is lower than industry standard and there is no flexibility with work hours or location. However, the tuition benefit is worth it if you have children that are college bound.
Pros
Tuition Benefit
Cons
No flexibility with remote options, lower than industry standard pay

Enjoyed the ride
University Development Representative (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 29, 2018
Typical day consists of hammering the phones 150 times with 1-2 connections per day on average due below average organic and purchased lead quality. Management is there but not accessible depending on the leader.
Pros
Many great friends were made
Cons
list is long but not worth mentioning

Fun but can't move up
IT Technical Support (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 29, 2018
As a student worker, you're pretty much limited to staying at min. wage, but everyone is nice and it's a great environment to be in overall. There's drama but it's limited, doesn't effect anyone's day-to-day working stuff. Hardest part are outages, most enjoyable part is late at night when there's an hour between calls.

University Counselor (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 28, 2018
The environment is a call center where you make cold calls and speak with potential students. Your work is based on the number of dials and talk time that you complete. It can feel like there is no job growth once you get higher up in levels but the people you work with can make the day better. You can make some great friends.
