    I have been working at Nelnet full-time (less than an year)


    The company seems genuinely interested in promoting from within, and offers discrete tracks to individuals who want to move up in the company.


    Information and regulations change frequently, so it can be easy to miss a new policy change or run into contradictory opinions from management about proper practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Though floor communications are helpful, standardization of information across all resources and levels of employees needs to be improved so that advisers, team leads, and sups are all on the same page.

    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.
