    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.
