Decent place to work
Enrollment Counselor (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZ9 June 2017
Enrollment at GCU is very cut throat, be prepared to make 200+ calls per day just to enroll 4-5 people per month. There is not much room for advancement and they do not seem to promote from within very often.

Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ7 June 2017
This was my first job in higher ed. I have been here the longest. The work is consistent. The clientele is a tough one because it is a for profit university. Often the college takes the student side so faculty feel unsupported.
Pros
consistent work
Cons
lack of support

Not much to actually do
Campus Operations Assistant (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ 8501725 May 2017
It is a good job for people who like to stand around a lot and talk to guests. Coworkers are great too. Aside from working basketball games not much goes on. The hardest part of the job is standing around a lot, and for most times there isn't much to do.

Generally a fun work environment with significant downsides
Mailroom Associate (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ24 May 2017
In my experience, GCU is a decent place to work. No more. No less. They do a great job of making a sincere effort to hire recent graduates, but the actual jobs that are available for recent grads does not seem to offer much in growth or career development. Unless of course you are pursuing a career as an enrollment counselor, which there is nothing wrong with just to be clear! In my personal position there was a huge absence of leadership. My colleague and I were placed in a position and were offered zero guidance by our superior, have little to no communication with them, and have an incredibly difficult time getting any feedback other then when an employee from a different department has an issue. I'm sure that this is not a reflection of every department at Grand Canyon University, but it has made a strong impression on me and I can only encourage GCU to improve on it's communication between all levels of management.

Web Application Administrator Level 2 (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ19 May 2017
Very little opportunity for advancement or increase in salary. Management encourages you to work harder (late nights and weekends) without compensation. Not a good place for women or minorities.
Pros
Free school tuition
Cons
Salary, paid time-off, management

Decent place to work with a very flexible schedule
Campus Operations Assistant - Parking Ambassador (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ15 May 2017
A typical day at work depends on the day. Sometimes it is fun, other times it is very long. It all depends on the event. Great co-workers that make it fun and make time fly by all while being very professional with people who come into the school. The hardest part of the job is that on days where there is a huge event, the day drags on and it is very tiring because a person is on their feet for about 4-6 hours straight.
Pros
Long breaks, great co-workers and supervisors
Cons
long hours, management is constantly changing
