Sales Representative Interview

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at GEICO.

Interview Details

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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at GEICO in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at GEICO in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied for customer service rep and upon arriving to my interview (after a phone call/screening) I was advised to continue my interview for a sales position based on my experience and GPA. First they put you in a computer lab to take an hour long typing and skills test. It is basic and pretty easy if you have experience on the computer. Then I sat down with someone from HR and they asked me why I was a good fit, what my qualities are, what leadership positions I have held, etc. Very basic interview questions for the most part. Then they had me do a role play and I had to make a sale to a person calling in to a fake company three times in a row. The gentleman told me I had passed afterwards and that I would hear back from him shortly. I got called for a second interview a week laster and I will be attending it tomorrow.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at GEICO in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    They first call you and give you a phone interview that asks you about generals and asks you a situational question. They then ask you why you would think you are eligible for a job with them. They give you specifics about the position and then If you pass the first part they'll schedule a in person interview.

    The second part includes a computer test that puts you in a simulated sales position including several different situations where people call you and you get emails. You also get a Typing test. If you pass this part (which takes about an hour) they'll interview you in person for about 30 minutes. Ask you specific questions about previous jobs.

    The third part is role playing. They give you information on a fake company and then you have to receive calls and try to sell. This is by far the most difficult part since they throw you everything.

    After that they'll email you with the result.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at GEICO in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I did a lenghty applicaiton online which had some questions tied into it. Afterwards I was contacted to setup a phone interview. I was called by a gentlemen who was extremely nice. He asked me about my working history and education, typical interview questions.
    After that I went in for computer testing on a Saturday, which is not something that I have been able to do with other jobs (most only offer weekdays). The staff in the afternoon was excellent. I went thru a face to face interview after that and some skills testing. Finally I was asked to go for a face to face interview with a member of management. Before I did that I sat with someone actually doing the job, which was great to actually see the job one on one. The hiring staff made it a pretty simple process.
