A company by athletes, for athletes

NCSA employees (referred to as “teammates” at NCSA) are excited about coming to work — we love talking sports all day and helping student-athletes find the right opportunity to take their skills to the next level. And NCSA prides itself on creating a company culture that enables its sports- and team-oriented teammates to excel, both in and out of the office.

Since most of us are former athletes in one way or another, we look for ways to stay connected to the game outside of work, and NCSA encourages us to do so. For any teammate entering an after-work sports league, NCSA contributes to the entrance cost. Plus, we often arrange our own teams throughout the year. From our pop-a-shot basketball hoop, to running the Ragnar, to company sports tournaments like our annual Flag Football Turkey Bowl, NCSA teammates know how to “work hard, play hard.”

NCSA’s team-oriented culture is also reflected in how we impact families and our community at large.

NCSA will never turn down a family based on financial reasons. We offer grants and other funding plans to ensure every qualified and committed student-athlete who needs help, gets it. Every teammate also receives paid time off to go out and give back to the community. While NCSA organizes community give back outings, individuals are also empowered to volunteer for causes they are passionate about.

NCSA in three words: team-oriented, competitive and passionate.

    I have been working at NCSA Next College Student Athlete full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Lots of flexibility on hours if you get your job done have tenure.
    -Laid back dress code, jeans are allowed on a daily basis.
    -Good amount of free food.
    -Can work from home if you consistently hit numbers.
    -Changes are made for the better based on employee feedback
    -Always good people working here that are like minded with former sports backgrounds.
    -The pay is good and gets better every year, takes time to work your way up commission scales and to hit your stride but once you do, you make more year over year.
    -Product is unmatched for recruiting services.
    -Really strong leadership at the top that makes changes for the better and lead by example.
    -Everyone received raises this year and some even bigger ones based on performance.
    -Always tons of resources to utilize to get more skilled and better at the RC role.
    -Culture legitimately feels like a winning locker room and there is little to no negativity which provides a winning team!
    -The competitive environment in the sales department creates a great atmosphere on a daily basis.

    Cons

    -Not a downside for me personally, but new people the learning curve is different for everyone, some people take off instantly, some it takes a little longer to hit their stride.
    -The phone system has issues a decent amount, not extended periods of time but just have to be patient sometimes.
    -Other than the few things I mentioned above it is a incredible place to work if you are a hard worker and listen to coaching the rest takes care of itself.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees and making the right changes and this place could become an even bigger force to be reckon with.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NCSA Next College Student Athlete.

    Interview

    I interviewed over the phone for this position as I was out of state while applying. The interview process was standard to what I’ve experienced in the past.

    I was offered the position and they jumped right into talking about start date and training. I backtracked and asked about salary. They gave me a number and when I asked them about flexibility the woman I had been speaking to told me she would check on the flexibility of the salary and then get back to me, and then I never heard back - no phone call, no email.

    They offered me the position and when I tried to discuss salary they completely ghosted me, they never even called or emailed me back to let me know that the salary wasn’t negotiable. I was very disappointed with how they handled what is a very standard practice when it comes to hiring and it certainly left a bad taste in my mouth regarding their professionalism and whether I would even want to work for a company that treats potential employees that way.
