    I have been working at Nelnet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Performance and health incentives in place. Benefits and ETO/PTO start on day 1 of employment! Employer will pay all health premiums for the first calendar year of employment; and will pay premiums for all consecutive years in which you continuously meet quarterly health goals (such as BMI, non-smoker, etc). They let you remove attendance "occurrences" if you work makeup hours for missed work. Leadership & HR seem to genuinely care for your professional happiness and career goals.

    Cons

    Frankly, I can't think of many... Parking garage costs are only partially subsidized.

    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
