    Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lincoln, NE
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nelnet (Lincoln, NE) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Short and basic interview questions. They wanted to get as many people interviewed as possible because the training class ended out being about 30 people. Interview lasted about 20 minutes. They offered me the job before I was able to get back out to my house which was a 15 minute drive away. The hiring process was quick and easy but the job itself sucks. It was good experience to interview with them but overall I wouldn't recommend doing so. The overall expereince was positive because everyone was initially friendly and everything

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nelnet (Highlands Ranch, CO) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Phone Interviewer was not American and did not speak English!
    H1-B worker?
    It took 3 weeks to get the interview scheduled. It was very unprofessional. They are hiring foreigners to interview Americans for jobs in America.
    It was very disturbing and unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Nelnet (Lincoln, NE) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The process was pretty simple, lots of your basic interview questions. They asked about times you've shown leadership and times you've faced conflict. They walked through some of my prior experiences at other jobs or at my university.

    Marketing Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lincoln, NE
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Nelnet (Lincoln, NE) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Nice people but stuck in the past. The questions they asked were very basic, similar to what you might expect for an entry-level position. Thanks to glassdoor reviews, I knew they would ask the "five year" question, but it still felt underwhelming. The recruiter didn't have knowledge of the company's reputation on this site. My 1:1 interview was short due to the department head's schedule overlap, and it took 16 days to hear the position was offered to someone else. Not impressive or challenging.

    Implementation Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Nelnet (Lincoln, NE) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Received a call and email to set up an introductory call about a week an a half after my application was submitted. Introductory call went well so I was invited to an in-person interview the following week. I was told I would be interviewed by two people, but only one was available at the time of the interview. Interview itself was very easy, most questions were about my experience and resume. I was told I would hear back by the end of the week either way, but did not receive a call or an email back and the listing was taken down.
