I applied online – interviewed at GEICO (Indianapolis, IN).
I did a online application they sent me a email that evening to pick a on the phone interview. They called me the next morning ask me a couple question to see if I would be able to work the job schedule after that they had me come in the next day to take a computer test it covered typing and put data into the computer system after I passed that. They did a face to face interview after they did role play with me. All that takes about 3 hrs! After that they told me someone would call within the next week to set up a last interview. So 5 days later they did call I missed the call I called back with in 30 mins I got a voicemail for the HR department said to leave a message and they would call back within a business day I waited 2 days to hear back never got a call so I called back today and told the lady I was waiting for a call back. She said we closed your file because we tried calling many times. So I corrected her and told her no you only called once and I called back with in 30 mins and I never got a call back so that's why I'm calling. She said well you will just have to wait and reapply since you missed our call. Very rude! I guess I can be happy I am not going to be working with this company. A company that can flat out lie and be rude. So I guess what people have said about this company is true.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at GEICO in October 2014.
I applied at the Geico website and took the personality survey. I made my answers match up to the most positive answer choices and got an email from HR within 24 hrs to schedule a phone interview. HR was timely and called within 1-2 mins of scheduled time. I was asked why I wanted to work at Geico and where else I was applying. After showing a real interest in the company I got email from HR stating for me to call in to schedule testing and interview day that was to last between 3-5 hrs. I took off a day from my currnet job to go in because the process looked really long and I did not want to prolong any longer than needed.
I came in and about eight of us were computer testing. After passing test, waited for interview with HR team and did well enough to move to the roll play part of interview. Passed the roll play with same HR manager and was moved to next phase. I had to wait 1.5 hours because it was lunchtime, so left and came back. Did shadowing of current rep on project that I would be working and then interviewed with to team managers in the department. They asked how my experience would lead to success at Geico and would I be comfortable working the hours they were hiring for. Since I wanted a pay raise, I can work any hours they needed. Overall, not most desirable but left flexibility for other stuff when off.
I was waiting to move on to the background check and get my "you're hired" letter and go home. However, I was asked to interview with the two department managers. I was asked would I be okay with the repetitive calls and having to talk to a lot of people back to back without any real break in the monotony. I was ready and reassured them of my desire to make a lifelong career in the Geico ranks.
They asked about where else I was applying. I guess they felt i would leave for another job because I said I was looking at jobs with the federal government and science and technology jobs. I know they spend a lot of money paying for you to be a licensed auto insurance in like 5 states or however many are required for your region. I understand that they want to protect their investment and want to make sure you are not going to run as soon as something better looking comes your way. I also understand that they want someone who is going to be competent.
I was reassuring and confident that i could do good things once hired. I got the "you will here from us in the next few days" at the end of a long day. I did hear from them within 24 hours with a "thank you for taking interest in our company" and "apply back in 6 mos." Like I wrote earlier, I understand why they want to protect their interest. I don't understand why it takes them a whole day of time to say, "if you have a bachelors in anything other than business or liberal arts majors, then you should apply to our other positions or other companies."
Overall, I lost a day of pay and was exhausted at the end of the day. I interviewed for jobs that paid more and were a fraction of the time shorter. Hopefully, Geico will shorten its process, but i imagine it won't happen anytime soon. This has renewed a fire in me to really pursue jobs that would take advantage of the skill set i have (What Color is Your Parachute book by Richard Bolles) and not stop until I have a job that benefits me, careerwise and building my skill set, and benefits the company.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at GEICO.
Most people who posted here covered the interview process pretty well. The assessment test is really easy. I went on to the interview with the recruiter and then I was told my info will be passed on to management and will hear back in the next few days.

I sent in a app online and got a email back saying that I was going to get a call back from HR. She called me today and asked me some general questions. I am going back tomorrow for a interview. So far this all seems pretty painless, but we will see tomorrow.

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at GEICO (Lakeland, FL) in September 2014.
Started with a phone interview, where they ask you basic questions. Once you make it past that, which is easy, you are scheduled to come in and do testing. My appointment was at 9:15. I and 2 other candidates sat for about a half hour before we were called in to do the computer simulated test (you can do terrible and still pass). A woman then told us we would be called for the interview within 30-45 minutes.
Over 3 HOURS later (and right before I was about to leave) I was called, and asked a set of standardized questions that were read off a screen. The answers they wanted were very specific but not too difficult. This company has absolutely no respect for people's time. If you want to get food you can but you aren't given an accurate time frame for when they will call you, so the safest thing to do is wait as the hours go by.
After I was called into a room and asked standardized questions by a gentleman unprofessionally dressed, I was asked to sit and wait for another couple of hours for a simulation. At that point I just left and went home as my time is too valuable with graduate school and other work to wait an entire day for a call center job.
Geico: Revise your hiring process! Just because the economy is poor doesn't mean you should have a total lack of respect for a prospective hire's time, regardless of the low pay.
- Not difficult. They just want exact scenarios, which may be hard to give depending on your last job. Answer Question

I applied in-person – interviewed at GEICO.
Basically if they say they are going to email or call you in 3 days and let you know something you didn't get it because GEICO does everything for their new hires in the same day they are full of poopie I made a simple mistake on the MOCK CALL and they said bye...but the thibg about it is that training is 3 WHOLE months and she basically said im not trainable. RUDE company I want to work there because of the pay and benefits until something else came along but I hear from current employees they are or your back and get on you about everything...maybe thats why the turn over rate is so high... even with all of this I would still apply because of the pay and the raise every yr. But this is a warning for new applicants the hardest part is the MOCK CALL.

I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at GEICO.
Online app, phone interview, in office interview, computer test, manager interview. If you have passed computer test and offer to have manager interview you've gone pretty far. I'm not sure why the hiring process is so difficult, I would have expected more out of the job environment. A lot of people behind that door aren't professional.
- Keep calm and be honest and yourself. You'll be fine, it's not as hard as they make it seem. Answer Question
Ask as many questions prior to accepting. It's a lot to PTO, and hours/days, Comp day and switching shifts is so confusing.
