    Former Employee - Sales Representative in Macon, GA

    I worked at GEICO full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They pay for licensing. Also a great bonus package if in Sales, and many opportunities to increase salary during the year. Open door policy so able to speak with management at any time. The people working there are pretty nice.

    Cons

    Hard to balance work/life schedule. Very strict as far as sick days even with a doctors note. Sometimes care more about the phones being answered than your overall health.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider revamping time off policy. If you miss a day and you fall under a certain dependability standard then you are ineligible for raises even if you are meeting your goals. I think at least absences with a doctors note should be excused and not count against someone. Or at least maybe have the normal hit. Also give more fluidity in schedule making. When I started there you could just work every weekend if you wanted too, but now at least in the Macon office you have to work every other weekend. I know it's easier for scheduling if everyone does this, but it makes things harder to plan and lot's of people actually like working weekends.

    Claims Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at GEICO.

    Interview Details

    I have applied twice to Geico. The first time I was fresh out of college and wasn't well prepared.This time I applied for the claims representative position because I felt it would be a better fit for me. I did some background research and thought I'd have it in the bag, but still no.

    I applied on a friday and got a call Tuesday morning that I missed. When I called back she pulled up my file and started the phone interview. Simple questions like ,"Why did you choose the claims position?" and "What is your ultimate career goal". Pretty much everything that I have prepared for. The only question that caught me off guard was, "What have you done to prepare for this position? It is fast paced, requires multi tasking...what have you done?". I sheepishly answered about having to multi task and take on a lot in college.

    All in all I think I did good, but got the infamous, "We'll have a hiring manager review your file and contact you soon". It is pretty apparent that this is the kiss of death and is what I also got last time I had applied. I don't know what I could have done better to move on to the next step of the process. If they by some chance call or email me to do the testing I will update.
