I interviewed online - interviewed at GEICO in July 2014.

Interview Details

Hiring process was farely easy. I was called for my phone interview and from that point on, it was smooth sailing. The recruiters as well as interviewers were very eager to answer any questions that I may have had. There was the assesment not hard at all. Right after that, I headed on to my interview. The next few steps were a breeze and I look forward to working with this wonderful company.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GEICO in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Give yourself at least 2-5 hours to dedicate to Geico's interview process... in a nutshell, if you are what they are looking for, you will be there for the full 5 hours. You began by taking a few tests, one being the typing test. It is timed and you are in the testing room with other candidates. Once the test is over they wait for your results... usually about 5 minutes. They will tell you right then if you are moving on to the next part of the interview process. If you do, a manager from the department your applying for comes and get you. You go into a separate room and interview 1:1. If you pass this part, they place you in another room (sort of looks like an interrogation room) with about 5 pieces of paper, a box of writing utensils, and a phone. In about 30 minutes the phone will ring and you will go through a simulation mode (acting as a customer service rep and selling products). Once this part is done, if you pass... you meet the person who was going through the simulation with you. If you pass this part, they will take you on the floor and let you side-by with an employee for about an hour. When this part is done another manager will come get you and ask if you feel the job is still for you. This is the last part of the interview. He/she will say congrats you got the job... if this happens you will meet with the background specialist. They will tell you that the position is contingent upon passing background (credit check, criminal check, and urine test) if any one of these tests come back not within their standards you will not start the class. What I strongly suggest and this is from personal experience, is to make sure your transunion credit report is up to date with not a lot of collections/negatives etc. You fail once, you have one chance to clean it up. If they run it again and you fail, you have to wait 6 months before applying again. Good luck.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at GEICO.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • Keep calm and be honest and yourself. You'll be fine, it's not as hard as they make it seem.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Ask as many questions prior to accepting. It's a lot to PTO, and hours/days, Comp day and switching shifts is so confusing.

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at GEICO in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    So I applied online, got a call the next business day. Basically you will have seven phases. Depending how well you do on each phase determines whether you go to the next.
    I am copying and pasting from the email they sent me after I did the phone interview.

    Phase 1: Telephone interview

    Phase 2: Computer testing ( approx. 1 hour)

    Phase 3: Face to face interview with Hiring Team Recruiter

    Phase 4: Role-play (Simulation of the position you are applying for)
    (1 hour)

    Phase 5: Realistic Job Preview (Shadowing a representative within the department you are applying for and listening to live calls)
    (1 hour)

    Phase 6: Face to face Department Manager Interview (1 hour)

    Phase 7: Pre-employment physical and background review (5-7 business days)

    So I then went in for the test, five others were there. Four of us passed. The test consisted of two typing test. The test will be difficult for you if you are not extremely well oriented with basic call center systems. You have to learn as much as you can about their software in about 6 minutes than start listening to calls and reading emails and input the info.

    You might have to do the one on one interview right after or they will schedule it another day. I went right after, was actually first.

    The interview was some one on the hiring team. She really seemed unimportant and basically just asked me all the questions that the online application did.
    I felt like she was just doing the interview to get some experience?
    I am very well qualified for the job. Even though I did not get it.
    I believe it is because I just was a little rusty during the interview. I really wanted the job because the pay is ver good. I felt rusty since I have not had a job in two years since we had a new addition to the family.
    She asked really plain basic questions. Nothing at all difficult. Only difficult one was the whole unrealistic what would you do if blah blah blah.

    They then tell you that you will receive an email letting you know if you go on to the next phase. I got the email three days later saying no. Then I received a call later that day telling me that there was no specific reason as to why I didn't get hired and they just decided to go with a different candidate. Also that they really want me to reapply in 6 months. I was really dumbfounded when she told me this. I just told her how confused I was because I am very well qualified and she said yes I know that's why we really encourage you to reapply.
    So that's that. Very off.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GEICO in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process has been long, first online application, phone interview...passed that, came back for multitasking skills test, passed that. Another phone interview...scheduled for role play. I had 20 minutes to study the material then it was off to the races. I handled 3 different calls and tried to handle them as best I could. At the end the HR person told me someone would be in touch. I have a feeling this means I didn't get the job

    This was a phone interview, and the lady I spoke to was very nice. I genuinely enjoyed talking to her. I had a question about a prior offense from a few years back, and she politely and candidly told me that it wouldn;'t affect my chances at getting the job at all.

    I interviewed online - interviewed at GEICO in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initially applied for position on-line. Next correspondence was thru email saying they wanted to do a phone interview so you go to a link and pick the time you want. If you have a successful interview you get invited to come in to do an assessment.

    If you pass the assessment you will be invited to interview with management. They will tell you the process will take about three hours but it lasted much longer.

    If you make it thru the interviews with management and get offered a position be prepared to take a hair drug test and have a background check done

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at GEICO in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview. Personality, typing and multitasking test before any interview takes place. Once you have been told you passed the tests, a HR supervisor will interview you. If you passed that part you will then move on to the role playing. Here you are given a packet of a fake company that you will have 20 minutes to read over. Do not try to know everything, just bits you think are important. After 20 minutes you will be called and have to either explain info to a customer, keep a customer from leaving or explaining why a customer received a bill (these were all of my scenarios, yours might be different). If you complete that successfully, you will shadow an employee for an hour and then have your final interview with the department manager and supervisor.

    The process is easy because there is high turnover with the company. Just make sure you answer the question in a way that shows you are receptive to criticism and that you can adapt to a changing environment. one phone interview and then face to face. The job was offered to me on the spot so not difficult at all
