Worst working culture environment
Campus Operations Assistant (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 29, 2014
Pros: job opportunity offered
Cons: too many to list here
Mail and copy center operations, dispatched and received/delivered mail and packages as well as provide postal services.
Learnt how not to conduct myself by the sheer lack of professionalism, coping with harsh working environment and lack of concern for best working practices. Incompetent management practices that was more concerned with saving their – more... jobs than fulfilling their roles. Bullying, lax attitudes, uncouth conduct while on the clock by staff who have worked there for long; hardly the kind of environment one desires to gain a professional working experience.
It is amazing this place still is in operation after all the bungled services multiple people have received as well as numerous complain from students and parents which peaked at the start of 2013 Fall.
Opportunity to give feedback on need for changes despite it being ignored and service dissatisfaction persisting amongst students, staff and faculty. – less

Great FWS/NFWS Job
Ticket Sales Representative (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZMarch 21, 2014
Pros: got free tickets to multiple shows, pay not taxed
Cons: general nfws regulations mean you can only earn a certain amount of money and hours.
This was a fairly basic P/T job held during college. The managers are flexible and understanding of their employee's needs. Just do your job and they will take care of you.

I definitely learned a lot in terms of the service industry. I enjoy working with people face to face and on the telephone. This job helped me realize that I should work in some – more... sort of people-based industry. – less

Numbers & MICROMANAGING -- No Security
University Development Representative (Former Employee), New JerseyMarch 11, 2014
Pros: co-workers
Cons: micromanaging, turn over, fear approach, inconsistency
The people at GCU are great but management is numbers driven and very negative in their approach, all fear and no coaching. Also, there's uncertainty everyday about whether or not you'll have a job, there's no consistency with enrollment and so you are indispensable and replaced without question. Constant hiring for enrollment because of the major turnover.

Good job but lack of Managment support
University Development Representative (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXFebruary 13, 2014
I enjoyed working at GCU. The job is sink of swim position and they expect results immediately. Lack of Managment support when you start and it seems you are on your way out before you can really get started in your territory.

Unstable Environment
Enrollment Counselor (Former Employee), Tempe, AZFebruary 7, 2014
Pros: sharing the importance of education
Cons: constantly sell, sell and sell some more at all costs!
Online education is a vast pool of options, many deceptive tactics in this career field. Not everyone is cut out to attend school online, it calls for a very disciplined and dedicated individual.

If you can't get the bodies (meet monthly quotas) in the virtual classroom you lose your job in reality.

Great place to work. Life/work balance. Family oriented.
Enrollment Counselor (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZDecember 11, 2013
Pros: free education for myself, spouse and kids
Worked with Students ( Transcript evaluation, interviewed new students and application process). Also communicated with existing students for retention and referrals.

Great management, and co-workers. Everyone – more... cared about the success of students and worked well together.
Hardest part of the job was to let a student know that they were suspended.
I absolutely loved everything about the job. – less

Adjunct Faculty
Adjunct Faculty - Nursing Clinical Instructor (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZDecember 4, 2013
Pay is in the middle to high range for nursing clinical instructors. As with most adjunct faculty positions, the schedule is unpredictable. Those with more seniority get more clinical rotations leaving the less experienced cleaning up the crumbs. Ultimately, the sparse rotations are going to drive me back into the job market. Having an open schedule – more... for five months leaves me with too much time to look elsewhere.

There are a lot of clinical homework assignments that are dictated by the school. This is nice because the students all have the same number of assignments. The downside, I spend a lot of unpaid time grading those assignments. I would rather have the students focus on providing patient care and prefer the ability to adjust assignments based on the clinical site, access to patient information and student motivation.

Students are a higher caliber than I find in other programs. I don't have much contact with school personnel beyond the classroom instructor who also serves as the clinical coordinator. – less
