The work is rewarding, the culture is fulfilling, and the benefits are second to none.
Our associates have already experienced life at Great Lakes – here’s what you can expect.
Stacy Loves Her Job
When Stacy needed a job with flexibility, she found one. A full-time associate and full-time student, she discovered a passion for service and building others up.
“Our customers are our clients, our leaders, our team members, and our peers. I love the fact that every day the customers I get to work with are completely different.”
– Stacy, Functional Manager
Tamika Was Promoted
To Tamika, this job meant opportunity. She used our performance-based incentives to grow personally and professionally – leading to promotions and success at every turn.
“I didn’t know how well I would do in a call center, but it turned out to be different than what I was expecting. They give you a lot of incentives to just do your job. When you go above and beyond, they reward you even more.”
– Tamika, Recruiter

I started off as a temp four years ago, and I’ve moved up since then. It’s nice having a flexible schedule, and they’re so understanding when you’re going through something personal. It’s like a big family here.
- Jamie, Representative II
My co-workers and my team are the best part of my job. Seeing them develop and advance in the company, and seeing people who I’ve trained become leaders and trainers themselves is the most satisfying thing. It makes me feel like I’ve done something right.
- Donald, Loan Servicing Team Lead
Although I have worked many places over the years, I felt like this job was my first where I really connected with my co-workers. I believe Nelnet hires not only great employees, but also amazing people! No matter what department you work in, you have an impact on people’s lives.
