    It was not for me but maybe you'll like it

    TA2 Claims Adjuster (Former Employee)

    Pros-Off on the weekends (if you're a claims adjuster)
    -Great pay
    -Fast advancement

    Cons-Too much work and not enough time btw 8-4:30 to get it done
    -Training did not prepare you for the actual job
    -High call volume
    -Too many changes
    -Everybody has a different answer for a question that should have one answer
    -No help if you get too far behind
    -Taking off of work increases you work load tremendously when you return

    Advice to Senior Management-Better training program
    -More help for newer adjusters to help stay caught up
    -Be more consistent with the way things are handled concerning policies and procedures instead of doing things one way for one person and then another for the next

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you have no prior INS knowledge...It's possibly a good fit for you.

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Macon, GA

    ProsPay, Perks, benefits,Location, personal growth for the right candidate, paid training and license, no prior experience needed

    ConsMicro Management, Cubical Setting ( I couldn't breath... lol), Basic Training, Breaks, High school environment, Coaching/training

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease always remember people come from all walks of life. People learn different and have different perspectives. I'm generally a very optimistic person, but this position took the frosting right off the cake. I should have actually paid attention to all the red flags. I guess basic training is "basic" after all. Do better with training, then you'll possibly get better results out of your new hires once on the floor. These entry level jobs are good for those who are straight out of HS or maybe even college depending on experience. Please be aware that a lot of people are actually educated. I came to the company with prior insurance knowledge/license, which I think made it difficult for me. Overall, good for entry level or first time job seekers w/ no insurance knowledge. Update training quality, trainers and training materials. P.S job seekers, pls get as much info out of your trainers/managers/coaches as possible. I felt as though my training and coaching was a little half way when it came to the Geico way:/ I had a lot of red flags...Constantly hiring for a reason.

    Stable and nice people, but the lack of flexibility is stifling

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsVery stable, profit sharing is excellent. Good sense of comraderie between employees. Good pay for entry level employees. Lots of enthusiasm for GEICO as a company.

    ConsA lot of work assigned, with overtime expected but uncompensated. Lots of micromanaging, and management is resistant even to changes that are clearly needed. Lots of inefficient processes. Very stingy with vacation and sick time, and seems to try to nickel and dime employees for every little thing.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
