Interview Question – We're you ever late to your current job View Answer
Reason for Declining – The hours
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at GEICO in October 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online at the GEICO web site. Had a phone interview and a second follow-up in person interview. Had to take a typing test, reading comprehension test, personality test, and a one-on-one role play where you have to show your sales ability. This is nothing difficult. You have to submit to a drug and physical test. GEICO also checks your credit background and uses this as part of the hiring process. If you have had a prior bankruptcy there is no problem, however if you have been sent to collections and have very bad credit it can affect if you will get hired. GEICO also does a background check. Once you have cleared everything you are invited for orientation and then training, which consists of several weeks. Full benefits kick in on day 1, except that you will not be eligible to receive a profit sharing bonus on your first year. The Human Resources staff were all very friendly and welcoming. There is plenty of room for growth within the organization where you can move within departments in Sales, Customer Service, and Claims and even transfer to other regional offices in the U.S.

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at GEICO in April 2013.
Interview Details – You will do phone interview first and then come in for face to face interview. At your first interview you will take skills test, if you have worked in call center and follow instructions it is easy. If you pass skills test you will then interview. If you pass interview you will roll play to see if you can sell, if you can sell you will move on. **NOTE** If they need to fill seats you will breeze through, I had people in my training class that wanted customer service but were talked into Sales (shady!). After interview and roll playing if you are a body or can sell they will have you interview with center manager, he will offer you job on the spot. If no job offer you loose return to GO!

Interviewed at GEICO
Interview Details – After brief phone interview, was invited to office for second interview. A group of about 10 at my time slot took the computer test which measured ability to multitask and WPM. If you passed the computer test you met with a hiring person who asked you questions. The hiring person didn't seem very interested in your answers and just typed them up into their computer. Not much interaction or follow up questions. I was told I would hear back after the hiring managers took a look at everyone's interview answers. Emailed about a week later with a rejection.
Interview Question – Questions involving previous sales experience and dealing with clients. Answer Question

Interview Question – 2 part assesment Answer Question
I applied online - interviewed at GEICO in June 2012.
Interview Details – Well I applied first and received a call back to schedule a phone interview. They ask general questions as to why you'd be the right candidate and previous work experience. If you pass the phone interview you will go in to take the skills test for typing skill and quickness on the computer. If you pass that then they will invite you to another in person interview. During that one they ask more personal questions about why you want it and why you think you'll be suitable. You'll then pretend to be a sales person with management. They'll give you a fake company to review on paper and study it. Then you'll talk to them on another line and pretend to try and sell them this fake company presented to you the best you can. You've got 3 tries and after each one they'll ask you how you think you did. After that they'll let you sit with a person already employed with the position so you can get a feel of what you're going to be doing. After that they'll confirm you want the job and ask you If you'd like to join If they feel you're right for the position. Long process, but they choose who they really want.
