Joanna never expected GEICO would offer cutting-edge opportunities
in technology (think .NET, Splunk, Tealeaf, React, Watson, IVR, Azure).

I worked at GEICO full-time (More than a year)
PTO sick pay and vacation.
Easy growth within company.
Extremely supportive mentors, supervisors, and management.
Overall great company!
If you aren’t able to learn and retain information QUICKLY, this may be difficult for you to maintain employment. The support is always there but it’s not an easy job.
Customers sometimes are angry as with any position or company, if you can’t handle someone yelling, cursing, or calling you names, this could be a stressful environment. You have to remember in one ear out the other and not let it affect your work results.
Advice to Management
Great job! The support was always there, the promotions and pay raises were consistent with employees work. I’d love to come back to the company in the future! If I didn’t have to move, I’d still be there :)!
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GEICO (Poway, CA) in April 2017.
all day so expect to stay there a while such as waiting around for a time spell. You get there and you sit in a chair and wait for time to expire.
