    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Nelnet in July 2015.

    Interview

    Once I applied I got a call the next morning from a recuiter asking if I was still interested. There was a quick phone interview intro. Then she set up a face to face interview. I've applied here many many timea for sifferent positions and never got a call back. I'm guessing I got one this time since the job was staring within 5 days. The face to face interview was very good and casual. I had a good and quick experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Nelnet.

    Interview

    It was a very long drawn out somewhat disorganized process. I was actually offered the position via email weeks after I was flown to the home office for two days of testing and interviews. It was the usual type of testing and interviews with multiple people. I also spent a lot of time with HR for the testing and other formality type business.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember, it was the usual stuff, however I found out after being hired that my manager had misrepresented things that she had said.   Answer Question
