    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at GEICO (Lakeland, FL) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Initially, you are given two times every day (morning and afternoon) to come in and take a personality and multi-tasking test on the computer--at your convenience. The multi-tasking test consists of callers calling in and emailing you regarding health insurance while you have to enter their information into a database. You also have to type to see how many words per minute you can type without errors. Then, you take a 10 minute personality test. After that, HR representatives call you back for a quick interview and to tell you whether you passed the test. Following that, they set you up for a role play. I came back another day to do a sales role play and then got to sit with a representative and interview with a manager. The sales floor was loud and chaotic. There were over 150 sales reps--all talking at the same time. The cubicles were low and you share them with one other person. The manager gave me the most unprofessional interview I have ever had. He played mind games and at first told me he wasn't going to offer me a job, and then said he was going to offer me a career. He had a mega phone that he uses to shout to sales reps while they're on the phone. It was not a good experience and not a place I would like to work--especially for a base salary of $35,000. Also, you have to work nights and one weekend day your first 2 years and they are 10 hour shifts 4 times per week.

    The interview took about 6 hours in total for the 1:1. I was first asked a series of questions by a HR rep, then I was given a weird role play task. After that I spoke with another HR rep then was sent to shadow a sales rep during calls. After that I interviewed with the department manager. She explained the hours I would be working and where training is. I still didn't get the job...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GEICO (Macon, GA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I arrived at Geico at 9:00 and waited with a group of 6 individuals. At 9:15 we were lead into a room where we were tested on our call center skills. We sat at a computer and callers "called" or "emailed" their claims and we had to enter their information into the system. We also had to trancribe a paragraph. Once I passed that, I was given paperwork to fill out. After that I waited in the lobby again for about 10 minutes until I was called to meet with an HR person. The lady was very friendly and we just did a general interview. After that I was sent to the lobby again and waited for another 10 minutes. i was then called back into the officce and I was to pretend to be a sales rep and sale a carwash service to customer (the HR manager). You are given 15 min to read some information on a mock company and then sell the service. After each "call" ( three of them) we are asked how do you think you did? BE PERSUASIVE AND SELL THE PRODUCT!! That was actually my downfall, they said they would have candidates with better selling skills then me, but she said my customer service skills were very strong and would like for me to interview for that. So I'll see how that goes tomorrow.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GEICO (Macon, GA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online- received call next day to come in for testing the following day. Went in for testing at 7:45, passed and went in for 1:1 interview, typical interview questions: why Geico? Why did I leave previous employers? Voiced concern for my management experience( I would be "back-tracking" if employed with Geico) After interview then roleplay for sales position- took mock calls as sales rep. for car wash service provider. Found that I really am not cut out for sales but interviewer set up plans for customer service position-said that I was strong in that area. Go for roleplay for customer service position later today. Will post results later...

    Good company interview process was lengthy. Spent a lot of time waiting to talk to the next person, also lots of tests and practice role play. Overall a good place to work and a good company atmosphere. They are looking for team players who have the ability to learn their process.
