    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GEICO (Chevy Chase, MD) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online through the company's website. I was contacted by HR and scheduled for a phone interview. After the HR phone interview, I was contacted by an actuary who wanted to continue the interview process and schedule another phone interview. I was also given two hours to complete an Excel skills test after the interview. Twelve days late I was notified that I was not chosen for the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at GEICO.

    Interview

    First I applied online. I literally heard back from them the next day; they emailed me back with an Actuarial questionnaire. This was an untimed word document just asking so basic questions about myself. Shortly after that, they emailed me asking me to take a 2 hour timed analytic test. This consisted of an excel and a word document where I had to answer some questions and explain my reasoning. I didn't think it was incredible difficult and I thought I had done well enough, however about 2 weeks after I submitted that, they emailed saying that they were no longer moving forward with my application. Never even got to an interview :( However, I overall felt like this was a positive experience because they kept me informed and moving at a quick pace.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GEICO (Washington, DC) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The process was pretty involved:
    1. They have you complete an info sheet about you and why you want the job
    2. 2 hr Excel test - kind of difficult, it is good to have knowledge of some P&C concepts going into it
    3. Phone screen - mostly behavioral questions trying to gauge how interested you are in the job
    4. On site - met with 4 ppl and then had lunch with 2 others, questions are mostly basic interview questions, but you also go over the Excel test and they ask you more questions about that, so it is good to review it before your interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at GEICO (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    The interview process was long (about four months). This was my process: online application, additional details via email, phone interview, online test, interview at HQ. At HQ, you have a day of interviews (about five) where you learn about the departments and go over the online test. The response after the final interview took about a week.

    • Have you taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator assessment? If so, what was the result?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The compensation was significantly below other offers, and the office made me feel like I was in a never-ending replay of Office Space. DC is fantastic, but I couldn't make a career decision based on my distance from the Smithsonian.

    I had a phone interview after taking a computer test. The test is fairly easy with most of the questions about insurance loss and premiums. The phone interview is most based on my resume but also a couple of behavior question.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GEICO (Chevy Chase, MD).

    Interview

    Met with GEICO's National College Recruiter at University Career fair. Only days after sending in my resume, a questionairre was sent to fill out. Once that was sent in, a first phone interview was held during which the interviewer basically asked the questionairre questions all over again. After the interview, I was given an analytical test to complete in two hours. Some of the questions were not easy. Basic knowledge of loss ratios and basic excel formulas are quite important to pass this test.

    Interview Questions

    • The analytical test is no less than a two hour exam. Make sure you are prepared, awake, and equipped.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GEICO in August 2013.

    Interview

    applied directly through their website. In their first email they asked for transcript, resume and cover letter with some other basic questions like SAT score and what other jobs I have applied to.

    Then a week later I was invited for a phone interview. The interviewer told me that there will be another phone interview from actuarial department and then an onsite interview.

    But I was never contacted back.
