    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at GEICO.

    Interview

    Applied online. About two weeks later got a word document survey with questions to answer. I had to send back this survey with my résumé, cover letter, and transcripts. Four days later I received an email saying I wasn't selected. I'm assuming my GPA (3.0) was too low to move on to an actual interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at GEICO (Washington, DC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    1) I was approached on Linkedin
    2) I had to fill out a basic questionnaire, with my personal information, background and plans for future studying and exams.
    3) The 1st "interview" a few weeks later was an excel actuarial test, that had to be completed within 2 hours. Know how to use basic excel functions.
    4) The 2nd interview step was a phone interview. This happened aboput a month after, as I was being interviewed during finals week and they let me postpone it a little. It could have happened 2 weeks after the application. This interview was about 30-40 and asks you questions about why you would want to go to Geico, and tests your knowledge of the Property and Casualty industry and your future plans. Prepare some situational answers for these questions.
    5) The 3rd interview would be an on site interview. I did not reach this stage, so I can not comment more about it.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at GEICO in October 2014.

    Interview

    Got recruited by an college campus recruiter, met him at a job fair and information session. I got a reply to fill our a questionnaire and submit resume. Then took the excel test which was not too bad. Make sure you have good excel skills or at least try to review some basic stuff like formulas. Then I did not get to go any further in the interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at GEICO in June 2014.

    Interview

    The aptitude test is hard for somebody who doesn't have any experience in the industry. It is not really an excel skill test, rather problems that are written on the excel spreadsheet. There are also questions with free response.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at GEICO (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    The interview process was long (about four months). This was my process: online application, additional details via email, phone interview, online test, interview at HQ. At HQ, you have a day of interviews (about five) where you learn about the departments and go over the online test. The response after the final interview took about a week.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment? If so, what was the result?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The compensation was significantly below other offers, and the office made me feel like I was in a never-ending replay of Office Space. DC is fantastic, but I couldn't make a career decision based on my distance from the Smithsonian.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at GEICO in August 2013.

    Interview

    applied directly through their website. In their first email they asked for transcript, resume and cover letter with some other basic questions like SAT score and what other jobs I have applied to.

    Then a week later I was invited for a phone interview. The interviewer told me that there will be another phone interview from actuarial department and then an onsite interview.

    But I was never contacted back.
