Don't work here!!!
Licensed Insurance Agent (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VANovember 6, 2014
Pros: pay and benefits
Cons: micromanage, schedule, no room for advancement
the interview process was beyond ridiculous, they sit you in a classroom for 2 weeks to study information that has nothing to do with your job description in order to get licensed then they take all the note cards and destroy them after you pass. Then you get to sit in another classroom for about 2 months to train then over to transitioning where you – more... sit for another month or so or until they think youre ready to go your team. Some of the coaches helped alot while other didn't bother to look your way.

Once youre there, the supervisor will find any excuse not to help you. Even other supervisors dont want to help. She played my "bad" calls out loud so everyone can hear it and it embarrassed me. They want you to login your IM screen so they can listen to your calls and type to you what they think you should say AFTER you already said something completely different to the customer then blamed me for confusing the customer. I hated that they yell out to you during a call to talk about absolutely nothing! Then they yell out all the A calls your teammates got to make you feel like your not doing a good job. Then make sign a paper basically stating that if you don't pass your calls then they will fire. If you even forget to mention umbrella policy, homeowners insurance or email activation, YOUR CALL IS CONSIDERED NON A AND YOU FAIL. I lasted 7 months there. Ill never work there again. – less

Out of business
Clerk (Former Employee), Macon, GANovember 5, 2014
Company is out of business I believe. If they aren't out of business probably have new management. So I can't be a reliable source of information on this company.

Survival of the fittest
Supervisor (Current Employee), Macon, GANovember 4, 2014
Pros: great pay, benefits
Cons: micromanagement, view people as disposable
This company has great benefits and competitive pay. Be prepared to be overworked and micromanaged every day. A work/life balance is almost impossible and even the hardest worker still can't give enough. Heaven help you if you have any major upheavals in your personal life such as the death of a family member, divorce, etc. There will be no consideration – more... in your time of need. It used to be a great place to work, but the corporate culture has changed drastically in the past five years. – less

Work non stop
Automobile Claims Adjuster (Current Employee), Lakeland, FLNovember 4, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: workload, expectations, constant non work related meetings
The workload is ridiculous, and their expectations of you are ridiculous considering the workload. My training group was 13 people, and in less than 1 year 1 quit, 1 got fired, and 1 was laid off. Out of the remaining 10 atleast 6 are actively trying to get out and go somewhere else. Additionally, it seems like other insurance companies pay a little – more... more and you do way less. – less

Good job until you are over 40
Claims Service Representative II (Former Employee), Fredericksburg, VANovember 2, 2014
Pros: excellent benefits
Cons: don't grow up
For the first 5 years I received nothing but "good job" letters and raises. Then I turned 40 and a new supervisor was assigned to "weed" out the older folks. It's a great company if you are young and in college.

Poorly managed company
Senior Telephone Claim Examiner (Current Employee), Macon, GAOctober 26, 2014
Pros: profit sharing
Cons: micro managing, non caring managers and supervisors, unethical work environment
This would be a great place to work except for the supervisors who micro manage. The managers are unknowledgeable about the jobs that they manage and shove unrealistic goals down your throat. The job is horribly stressful and the micro-managing and unrealistic goals and demands take a toll on you both physically and mentally. Recently there has been – more... a spike in promotions but only for the new hires. Tenured people are treated as if they have the plague and are always behind the eight ball when it comes to being promoted. This is a direct result of unequal work distribution. – less

A growing company with room for improvement daily.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Macon, GAOctober 23, 2014
Pros: the pay, cafeteria was downstairs, so no need to travel plus discounts.
Cons: odd hours; which i worked with and was able to do.
Receiving phone calls and going over policies with the customer to give them the best, courteous service possible.

I remained doing great customer service while; being A great team player.

The most enjoyable part of the job was receiving or looking forward to incentives to do better more professional work.

Miserable and hateful place of work
Insurance Agent (Former Employee), Poway, CAOctober 23, 2014
Pros: paycheck
Cons: everything else about the company.
If you value your sanity and your relationships outside of a workplace, DO NOT take a job with Geico. This job put a strain on my marriage and my health and when brought up to management about my concerns, their response was "you need to relax" and "well maybe it will get better in the future?" Even with medical recommendations to take ONE day off, – more... it is required that you sign over all of your medical records to the HR office. Training is SIX MONTHS LONG and that schedule will change multiple times as will the information provided for you to do your job, then you will be knocked down by several "management" team members on how you're not doing your job good enough and with correct information. If you like high school drama and the personalities of 16 year olds in every position; if you like being spoken to like a child; if you enjoy being disrespected and constantly told you're not doing good enough at your job; if you are afraid of being fired on a constant basis, you may like it. However, I would not recommend this job to someone I hate, please DO NOT apply here. – less

Reliable company, poor work/life balance
Claims Adjuster (Current Employee), Virginia Beach, VAOctober 19, 2014
Pros: benefits, co-workers, mission of the company
Cons: workload, poor work/life balance
good company that has an excellent reputation, great benefits and very good mission statement, focusing on integrity of work and its employees. However work/life balance can suffer because the workload can be so demanding and there is not enough employees to be able to get the work done in the amount of time that you are expected to do so.

micromanaged
Senior Claims Examiner (Former Employee), Fredericksburg, VAOctober 17, 2014
Pros: pay and peofit sharing
Cons: ubmeetabe goals. senior. management. micromanagment. that god danned lizard
Very stressful place to work. They micromanage you and have unmeetable goals and they constantly Change how they want the job done. They script everything and want you to screw the customers out of their insurance benefits and fix cars with used or Chinese parts. They make you miserable. Nothing is ever right. They always want you to do more with less. – more... They even get mad if you use paper. They also make you sit in broken furniture. They listen in on calls and nothing is good enough. There are about 80 things to say or do in a call. They want calls to be 2:30 minuites and want everything perfect and 1 call resolution. They also penalize you for taking calls with a calls per feature resolution goal and they audit claims and penilize you if you don't save them money even if the parts and labor are fair and they stress you so much that many including me got sick and vomited every day and could not sleep and they wanted you to put up pictures of the anoying gecko and force you to look at him. The pay was good but management was awful and they always change bosses and goals and how they want the same job done. They are abusive mentally and they punish you for going to the doctor. I ended up on aderall Zoloft seraquil sleeping pills and more. I got shakes and tried suicide 2 times. Its not worth it. No wonder they are always hiring. – less
