Our associates have already experienced life at Nelnet – here’s what you can expect.

The Culture

Rebecca Was Promoted

To Rebecca, Nelnet means opportunity. She used Nelnet’s performance-based incentives to grow personally and professionally – leading to promotions and success at every turn.

“Before starting at Nelnet, I had never worked in a call center environment and was not sure how successful I would be. I quickly realized that Nelnet not only provides a lot of support to help you be successful, but also rewards hard work with performance-based incentives and the opportunity for promotion.”
– Rebecca, Team Leader

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.


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.
