Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee in Buffalo, NY

Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GEICO (Buffalo, NY) in June 2015.

Interview

Lengthy, testing is easy, Role play was the hardest part. Was told I'd hear back in 3-5 days. It's been over 2 weeks and haven't heard anything. A little disappointed in the lack of professionalism. Would have been much more courteous of them to let you know on the spot rather than playing games.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at GEICO (Woodbury, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online at geico.com. Got an email the following day to schedule my phone interview for the following Monday. Phone interview seems very rushed. A recruiter will ask you a series of questions about your resume and explain about the job and its benefits. If the recruiter feels like you are a good match they will set you up for in person testing for the position you applied for. It's pretty much a test to see how you would do with using the computer systems if you are hired. I Passed the test and was asked to wait for the next HR manager to become available to interview me. When I finally got into the HR office, the manager also asked a series of questions. The HR manager spent about 15 minutes asking me questions that she read off of a computer screen. Questions were asking about how you would handle or have handled certain scenarios in the workplace. She will then record your answers. After she finished asking me all of the questions, I was told that she would submit it to what to me seemed like some imaginary hiring managers department for review. Instead of just letting me know that I wasn't right for the position. Overall the interview process seems like a big test. The recruiters don't take the time to actually get to know you, but rather they ask you questions off of a computer screen making them sound like a bunch of robots. This is supposedly rated one of the best companies to work for, yet this is the best they could come up with as a hiring process? I'll take my degree somewhere else and work for a company that I know will actually value you as a person and not just look at you as some applicant. Actually glad I didn't get the position. Thanks but no thanks.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GEICO (Fredericksburg, VA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was a long interview process, you answered general questions about your experience, and scenarios questions, you have to pass a simulation where you receive calls from "customers" and you need to sell them a car wash service. I flew there in order to get the interview, did not got the job and I couldn't get the reason of why I didn't got the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GEICO (Virginia Beach, VA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is a long one, but if you're right for the job then it runs very smoothly. It starts off with a standard phone interview just so they can get an idea of your current lifestyle and what you're looking for in the position. Next is the computer testing at the Geico site, fairly simple if you can type at a moderate to fast speed. Next is the in person interview with an HR representative. If you succeed at this stage, you move on to meeting with managers.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions varied: what can you bring to the table, what experience do you have, how long do you see yourself being on the phones, etc. They ask you questions to see if you're willing to stay with the company for a long time because they invest a lot of money in the people they hire. I would only consider it difficult because the interviewers are hard to read at times. If you want the job, you better make it seem like you'll stay for years even if you don't want to.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I filled out the application online and received an email the next day asking me to schedule a phone interview.The interviewer called promptly at my scheduled time. She asked a couple basic questions and about my availability. I ultimately withdrew my application because of the requirement of employees to work weekends, two major holidays, and hours that can be anywhere from 6am- midnight. I just wasn't willing to sacrifice that much time with my family.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GEICO (Fredericksburg, VA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is long and tedious. If you make it to the end, plan on being there for about 5-6 hours. First there is the phone interview that is really basic. Then there is the computer test, which is basically gauging how well you handle stress and how well you multi-task and type. Then you have the f2f interview with the initial interviewer, do your research on the company and the position you are applying for so you can cater you answers to their needs. They will basically ask you the usual questions, i.e. "Why did you chose Geico?" "Why this position?" "How long could you see yourself working here?" etc. Then they have you do a role playing test, which tests out how well you can sell a product and how good your people skills are. If you make it past all of this, they will have you shadow someone-which you need to pay attention, because they will ask you about what you heard. The last step is having the f2f interview with the hiring manager.
