    I have been working at Grand Canyon University

    Pros

    You can earn a degree for free tuition

    Cons

    Unorthodox management that changes on a quarterly basis. During my employment, I have been asked to move to 5 different managers and sections of the call center. Despite my high production, leadership still treats me like a piece of meat. The Arizona Republic article on the 29th revealed some issues that the Department of Education is looking at. Do not be surprised if GCU online status becomes provisional and financial aid access is denied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate the boiler room environment that exists within the call centers in Peoria and Tempe. Do not be surprised if the internal union organizer is successful in the establishment of a shop steward to address the multiple issues that exist among the call center employees.

    I worked at Grand Canyon University

    Pros

    School is growing. Nothing else, really.

    Cons

    Pushy, dishonest, unethical, and poor enrollment process. Phone interviews are all about "finding the pain". Bad sales technique.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enrollment quotas and threats for not hitting them cause a bad work environment. Make the job about the student.
