InsuranceInterest in Akron, Ohio said: Hello! Before I even apply for the job, can someone please let me know a little bit about the training?

Do you have to be away from home for the full 3 months or do they allow you to fly home once a month? If so, do they pay for transportation home?
Where do you live during training? Do they have corporate housing ? So you have to share a bedroom with another person? Do you have to pay for your food and living expenses? Do you have weekends off during training or is the training 7 days per week?

Hi. I am a member of the GEICO HR team and reached out to some of my colleagues to provide you with an answer. Please note, that once you apply, your resume will be reviewed.
If your background appears to be a match for our Auto Damage (AD) Trainee position, a member of our hiring team may contact you for an initial phone screening interview. During this interview, we go over the requirements of AD training (aka AD school) in detail. Don’t be shy, our interviewers are a resource to you and can answer any questions that you may have!
Here’s an overview that I hope you will find helpful:
Our training center is located in McLean, Virginia (Washington, D.C. metro area) and the company provides hotel accommodations (per person), a daily meal allowance, and transportation to and from our facility. Training is continuous while in VA and there are no breaks. Once you successfully complete training, you will return to the location that you were hired to work in.
AD school is intense and requires a lot of studying in order pass necessary milestones. During training, we discourage leaving on the weekends as it may affect a new associate’s ability to learn the material necessary to pass daily quizzes / tests, and a passing score during AD training is required. The key to success during AD school is to study each day and keep up with the material.
The company would not cover costs associated with weekend travel.

Hi - GEICO associates are paid every two weeks on either Thursday or Friday depending upon location, this goes for training as well. I recommend contacting the San Diego office directly about the training travel expense question: careers.geico.com/contact-us/give-us-a-call/ -- I hope this was helpful to you. Shannon, GEICO HR

...

Why do you ALWAYS keep hiring these adjusters? The process is rigorous (and I assume expensive too, since you have to pay for 3 months of accommodation/training/living expenses) , yet you always seem to have openings for GEICO adjusters.
I read on Glass-door that you have really rapid turn-over ,employees say they flee GEICO shortly after training ends (they all claim to be treated as 'gold' during training and thrown into unworkable conditions upon getting a license).
Would you kindly address this matter and explain why you always have those Adjuster Trainee positions open?
I wouldn't pay much heed to glass-door ratings/reviews, I would assume those were just few bad apples, but I do pay attention to a fact that GEICO Adjuster Trainee position is one of the most constantly advertised/hiring positions out there and I wonder why you have such a rapid turn over rate that you have to keep hiring non-stop?
Don't you also think that your hiring tools, which probably involve 10 interviews and half dozen personality tests, is not really effective after all?

Thank you in advance for your attention.

Best,
Jobseeker

Unfortunately you have not answered the questions asked.

There are reports by former GEICO employees that working conditions at GEICO are bad ( go to glass door and see reviews, I can't post a link here as indeed blocks it).

It's is also fair to say that you have too many Auto Adjuster Trainee positions opening in the same region (whenever you look for jobs on indeed or elsewhere you can see those in local searches, with words "GEICO Auto Adjuster Trainee"). Surely one can't be growing so many AAT positions so rapidly and with such consistency in the same exact local market. How many auto-adjusters each local office can absorb, 5.0, 1.0.0, 1.0.0.0? This usually occurs when there is high turn-over rate so you are forced to constantly hire new personnel and it confirms the online reports by former employees (they specifically state that they are treated as gold during 3 mounts training but then subjected to really bad working conditions, when into workforce. That's why, they claim, there is such a high turn over rate).

It also puts a big question mark on your hiring practices. It is reported that you have half dozen tests and exhausting , multiple personal interviews and protracted hiring process (under the pretext of selecting the "most fitting candidate"). So, if so many candidates end up leaving bad feedback and quitting, don't you notice how ineffective and counterproductive your hiring practices are?

As I said, no valid question goes answered :) Scripted "We have high growth and expansion" reply did not answer the specific questions I asked.

Hi Shann346 in Maryland,

I just saw this site and hope you could advice:

On July 25th, I applied for a position as an “Auto Damage Trainee - Montgomery County, MD”. The same day I received an e.mail from GEICO informing that “…according to your application responses you do not meet one or more of our minimum requirements.” I checked my application and found my typo/mistake: I answered “No” to the question “Are you 18 years or older?”

Is there any way I can correct my typo?

Thank you,
PK Applicant

I have read the glass door employee review of the GEICO.

According to a large number of posters ,who claim to have quit or still working there, their working conditions are miserable.

I take all those reviews with a grain of salt, always. What alarmed me is the sheer volume of negatives (doe snot appear like just a few disgruntled people complaining of the wrong type of painting hanging on the wall).

Most ironically , they have this extremely complicated vetting process where they put you through hoops , only to have you quit your job or complain about it after being hired.

As I posted earlier:

It also puts a big question mark on your[GEICO] hiring practices. It is reported that you have half dozen tests and exhausting , multiple personal interviews and protracted hiring process (under the pretext of selecting the "most fitting candidate"). So, if so many candidates end up leaving bad feedback and quitting, don't you notice how ineffective and counterproductive your hiring practices are?

Hi Shanon,

I need your help again:

After I e.mailed to the Geico HR office (r1jobs@geico.com) I was contacted (via e.mail) by the HR repr. asking to set up a phone interview. I did the phone interview on August 13th . At the end of the interview the HR representative stated that I will be contacted by a specialist of the Geico HR Dept within three to five business days.

As of today, I have not been contacted by any Geico HR specialist. Could you please advise.

Thank you,

Hi Claudia - Thanks for your interest in GEICO! Our adjusters all attend GEICO's leading Auto Damage training at our facility in McLean, VA (outside of Washington, D.C.), before returning to the location they were hired to work in. I hope this helps! Best, Shannon

Geico seems like a good place to work for someone without any experience because of the on the job training. I would like for my wife to apply now that the kids are all in school but its been quite a while since she is out of the work force and she has never been in a call center environment. I feel that she can handle the training but some of the role playing interviews she would not know how to handle. Also is there a percentage that quit or fail out during training? She would be a very loyal employee but what I have been reading on some of these threads I am afraid she would get eaten alive in this company. Is there anybody from Geico that can explain the difference between a customer service rep, sales rep and claims rep. Also which one would be a less stressful environment. Also was wondering what the hours and pay would be for a mail classification clerk II are. It's the only job that the rate of pay or hours are not on the website. Thanks

I am so glad I don't work for GEICO.

For obvious reasons I won't disclose where I work now, but when I read the employee reviews of GEICO on glass-door it sounds like people go through hell before they run out of there (and thus creating permanent job openings at GEICO).

It's not all easy and cake walk where I am working at this time. We have our workload, deadlines and management demands. But none of it comes close to what I have read about hellish experience people who worked at GEICO describe.

My advise to nayone who reads this: don't work for GEICO. You will be forced to run off within a short period of time (or they will fire you) and this will only negatively affect your self esteem and future job prospects.
Find a company where management comprised of real, down to earth human beings (that's, btw, one of the reasons I got hired in the first place).

Nothing against GEICO as an insurer, but if Glassdoor reviews are of any use then it's safe bet to say that their management consists of total jerks who will turn your life into total hell once you graduate from that nice and dandy training in McLean, VA.

I have recently applied for the Auto Damage Trainee position. I have read some reviews that indicate if you are fortunate enough to receive and offer, you could be fired for failing a class? Is this true? A lot of the post are frightening and would like some clarification.
Also, I am currently at a job that I like very much and do not want to jeopardize if all does not workout with Geico, in the hiring process do they work with you on scheduling?

Hi Sfinn2212 - I am a member of GEICO's HR team and wanted to provide some additional information. During the AD Training there is a requirement to maintain at fairly high GPA. It is 90% for the First Month and 85% for Basic Training in McLean, VA (Second Month). During training, we work with our Associates to help them study, prepare and bring up their scores. If someone was not able to maintain the GPA, they could be released from training. As with any other Department, we always try to work with our Associate to help them stay with the Company and this could mean transferring to another role that is a better fit. Unfortunately, because of the remote locations of most of the AD Job Openings, that is not always possible. I hope this is helpful. ^Shannon

HI Shannon,

Thank you for your answers. They are really insightful and helpful. I'm currently in the interview process. I have done the phone interview and my face-to-face interview is being scheduled for the Auto damage adjuster position.
My questions are in regard to the training and hotel accommodation.
1. What are the daily training hours and does the training also take place on weekends? After class hours, is anything required of trainees?
2. If the training is taking place in a trainee's hometown, are they required to stay at the hotel? and are they allowed to use their own transportation?

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much.

Here is the information on schedules from one of our Auto Damage recruiters:

Training is normally Mon-Fri 7:30-4:00 but depending on the tasks that need to be completed, it may be adapted. Since there is a requirement to pass training related exams, you expect to study during the evenings and on weekends.

The 3 months of training is divided into sections: Preschool, Basic School and Post School. If an associate is local to the training, they do not need to stay in the hotel for Preschool or Post school. But even if the candidate is local to the "Basic" Training in McLean Virginia, they would need to stay in the Hotel provided. The course is comprehensive and intense, and the hotel environment facilitates a group study atmosphere.

GEICO not only pays for the Hotel, there is usually a company vehicle for the students to car-pool from the hotel to the Training Center. If the candidate is local and not in the Hotel for Pre-school or Post School, they would be driving their own vehicle back and forth from home.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Shannon

I just wanted to say that the GEICO auto damage adjuster position is a very good position with a very good company. I am a auto damage adjuster with GEICO and I LOVE my job. I can tell you all from personal experience that GEICO treats it employees very well and it's a great environment to work in. I have gotten two of my friends jobs as auto damage adjusters and both of them love it. I'm not sure what the "glass door" reviews say but all I can tell you is that Geico is a great company to work for and they will treat you VERY good! Sorry for going a little off topic but I felt the need to defend my job and company from these "glass door " reviews some speak of.

One more question. I'll be heading out to training next week. After the 12 week training, I'll be working an ARX location out of a body shop. Once I return from the 12 week training is that when they give you the car? Me and my wife share 1 car so this company car solution will be very helpful. Thanks for the help.

Hi - I am a member of GEICO's HR team and wanted to reach out to you. Thanks for your interest in Auto Damage at GEICO! Company vehicles are typically only given to those associates that have a business need to drive the vehicle. If an adjuster is solely working an ARX or any type of full time Centralized Location (customers coming to their location) then it is unlikely they would get a company vehicle. Hope that helps answer your question :)

Hi Shann346 - I have applied for auto damage trainee in Harrisburg. How long does it normally take to get a response? It has been over a week, but it seems like most people get a response within a few days. I am very qualified and would at least expect an interview. Thanks :)

Hello, I am interested in the Auto Damage trainee program. I am in Baltimore MD, the 2 locations are Frederick, MD and also Va. My question, does the Frederick location also have a hotel that we will be required to stay for the additional 2 months? Also, the paid training, is this minimum wage or does the salary portion start on the 1st day of training? Thank you

Hi Essex - Thanks for your interest in GEICO! I am a member of the GEICO HR team and wanted to respond. All new adjusters, regardless of location, spend four weeks of Basic School training at our facility in McLean, Va. While in Virginia, GEICO pays for your hotel and provides transportation to and from the center. And, you are offered a salary during training, and then promotions and increases as an Adjuster are based upon your performance. Hope this helps! More information is posted at www.geico.jobs/AD. ^Shannon

Hello and thanks for your comment. My question about the Frederick location. Is there hotel accommodations as well, or will I be traveling daily to this location?
