Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at GEICO (Washington, DC) in June 2017.

Interview

I received a technical test first which was more about logistic. The test was not very hard. THen I received a 30-minutes phone interview. They asked questions related to my resume and some basic questions such as why Geico. However, they realized that I am not u.s. citizen and canceled my onsite interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GEICO (Chevy Chase, MD) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Had a technical phone screen, which was fairly casual. The hiring manager asked about my experience building models with different tools. If you have the experience, you needn't worry about trivial questions.

    The next stage was on-site, during which I talked to five different people. It was a mixture of simple behavioral questions, technical questions, and case-type questions specific to underwriting.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GEICO.

    Interview

    Applied online via their website. First asked to send a transcript. Then they send you a link for an timed online assessment consisting of a logic portion and a math portion. The math portion was simple but the logic portion is tricker. I thought they were both ok but I guess not since I didnt move on to the next step.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GEICO (Chevy Chase, MD) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Very impersonal interview process- They required separate submissions of resume, university transcript, a lengthy questionnaire and 1+ hour long analytical screening; all before reaching any sort of interaction with a recruiter or some other real human being.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked many general math/analytics questions in the form of an online candidate screening without any sort of feedback during or after.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at GEICO (Chevy Chase, MD) in January 2018.

    Interview

    I applied and had interviews for two positions: Modeling Analyst - Data Mining and Statistical Analysis, and Strategic Modeling and Statistical Analyst. Total time was about 3-4 weeks. After filling out the application they sent me a questionaire to fill out, then had me take an assessment. For the first position, it was similar to the Math part of the SAT, with logical and math questions. The other was in an Excel file with basic questions, no experience with Excel is needed. Then had a phone interview. Next step was an in-person interview. The Modeling Analyst position was slightly ahead of the other job and so I set up the in-person interview with them, then the other position added a couple of people for me to talk to throughout that day. The in-person interview had me talk with several people with different roles in the respective groups, and the Modeling Analyst position had another short assessment. The Strategic Modeling position had me meet with someone to discuss my answers to the assessment from before. A few days later I heard I was offered the Modeling Analyst position and not the other one, so my decision was pretty easy.

    Overall nothing about the steps was terribly difficult, but some parts were tedious and didn't seem to even be considered, like the initial questionaire and the online assessments. Perhaps these are just used to weed out applicants who aren't serious.

    After accepting, I needed to take a drug test and go through a background check. For my background they wanted W-2's from all previous employers which seemed excessive but only took a couple of weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GEICO (Washington, DC) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very long. First you have to send in your resume, cover letter, transcripts, and fill out a questionnaire. Then there is an online assessment (logic and math) and then a phone interview. I was flown in for an on-site interview. This lasted from 9AM to 2PM and consisted of 4 interviews with different people as well as a writing/excel assessment and a lunch. The one thing they fail to mention is that when you apply, you are not applying for a specific position. They are considering you for any position in the department, which is why there are so many interview. Overall, the experience was good. The people were nice and easy to talk to.
