What are the average starting salaries, bonuses, benefits and travel requirements like at GEICO?

What do you like best about working at GEICO? Are there any great perks or special treats for employees?

I heard the profit sharing is good but you won't be able to get 100% after working there for 6 years. No 401K matching though.

Also, I think the starting salary for sales is around 30,000. And they give you 100% 401k company contributions after 5 years now in Fredericksburg. Also, they may not have 401k match but they do put 10% of the profit sharing you get into the 401k every year you get it and the rest is in your hand cash after taxes. Hope this info helps.

Last addition, the dental plan doesn't barely cover anything but is cheap to participate in, NO maternity leave, what did I tell you about missing time?!?!?!, no short term disabilty, by the time the long term disability kicks in you'll probably be bankrupt, but again the coverage is cheap, and the medical benefits are banging but expensive (about 150 every two weeks for an employee and spouse covered). I do think the contest stink now, they used to give cash, then they started giving gift certificates, now you can barely win anything that isn't cheap junk. I would personally rather they give me the money they would have spent on the cheap junk in profit sharing that year. Another good job might be the fraud department within GEICO, seems pretty exciting. :)

Are Geico associates required to purchase Geico car insurance? Thanks.

No, you don't have to purchase GEICO car insurance but I will say that especially in GA they are reducing their premiums on auto and give an employee discount. So you actually might make out with a super low premium by switching. Hope this helps. :)

Oh yeah, I noticed I didn't mention this earlier, local companies give each region discounts and also GEICO auto policy holders get discounts with certain companies as well. Check out GEICO.com for the policy holder discounts. :)

Thank you so much for your response. That is good to know that I am not required to purchase; but, if I am offered a position, it will be worth looking into anyway. Thanks again:-) -Jes

It is a great place to work considering it is a call center. I have been with them for a long time and there IS maternity leave in the form of Medical Leave. There is no Short Term Disability coverage which is a disadvantage, but the insurnace coverage for health is really great (I have had several major surgeries on it) and the dental insurance is what most employers offer. Depending on the department you can make a lot of money. I would suggest for your sanity to go into the sales department and try and get promoted off the phones. Also, GEICO does not consider an Associates degree a college degree or education. You must have a Bachelors to be considered college educated.

Hello. I was wondering about a job in sales or customer service. The website says paid training. But I wanted to know how much do you get paid for training and typically how long is it for each position. I would like this for the Woodbury,NY location. Thanks

I don't know about NY but I would suppose they are talking about the one to two week training you get before you go to take the licensing test for the state and then if you pass that you would get anywhere from six to eight weeks of paid training for sales or service before they put you on the phone. You have to learn the systems, how to handle a inbound call, etc. So you are looking at max 2 and a half months of paid training if you make it past the licensing exam. I hope this helps. :)

I hear a lot about the stress in the CSR and sales positions which makes sense. But what about IT positions? How is the work environment at Geico if you are a programmer or a IT specialist? What is the turnover like in IT?

My question is if you got hired (in Fredericksburg) and training starts 11/16/09, but how do I know if I passed all of the background checks ? I didn't want to go and give my current employer a two weeks notice and then not pass my background check and even up with no job ! I am not worried about the physical and drug test I took...I know they will be good ! Please give me some advice to easy my mind :) Thanks

peacefulpauper in fredericksburg, Virginia said: I have been there for five years and profit sharing has been close to 20% or more of eligible salaries every year. The bonuses are easy to get sometimes, but then they raise the goals and it gets harder again. Overall, I have doubled my hiring salary in the time I have been there but that includes my bonuses and profit sharing in that. It is like any other job, it has ups and downs. Try auto sales, they seem to have the best pay rates and the most fun. I will warn you the WORST part about GEICO is they are NOT family friendly. If you are sick, your child is sick, you are on your death bed, you get in a car accident, you break your neck, IF YOU CAN MOVE AT ALL YOU BETTER BE AT WORK NO MATTER WHAT. Otherwise, you are the weakest link, goodbye. You have to maintain a 98 % dependability NO MATTER WHAT or they will find a way to not make it worth your while to hang around. With that said if you can take making GEICO the center of your universe you can make some good money and get along pretty well.

Unfortunately without a degree the highest you can be promoted is to a supervisor position, and even that will be harder without an degree, but yea its possible. ones with a college degree will obviously get the priority over you. You definitely need a bachelors or masters degree to move anything beyond a supervisor such as to be a sales manager.
Good luck.

April 25, 2012... I'm looking to apply to the Virginia Beach location. I'm just not sure which department is the best fit for me; sales, service or claims. I'm a single parent so of course the starting pay is very important. I've heard Sales pay the best? My concern is that I'm not very aggressive so I may not be a good fit for sales. Can anyone give me any feedback?

They will train you. I worked there for years and their sales training is still stuck in my head. That is one thing I will always credit them for is their awesome training and coaching of their people. As far as you being a single mom, please make sure you have at least two backups for your regular babysitter including someone who will watch him/her while he/she is sick or you are setting yourself up for failure. See my earlier comments about their attendance policy.

that's refreshing that the training is so thorough... do you know anything about the claims department? I'm just wondering which department would be the best fit for me... I read that there are no cold sales so I'm wondering if I have a fighting chance? haha I just know that I am not the most aggressive at sales.

As for the attendance policy, that is crazy... do they not offer sick/paid time off???

They do give sick leave and vacation time but when I was there you couldn't miss any time in the first six months and it doesn't really matter the situation if you miss unscheduled time youbare fired. Sick leave is given but its almost like you can't use it. I know a lot of people that like claims but I hear they are making you cross sell in every department so why not get paid sales salary and bonuses? :-)

Hi - I work in GEICO's HR department and saw your question about sales bonuses. Our Sales Reps receive a base salary + monthly bonus potential. Top Sales performers may earn up to $5,000 / month; the average monthly bonus is approx. $1,300 / month. Bonuses are awarded based upon meeting goals. Our sales positions are in-bound sales, which means there's no prospecting or cold-calling. Sales reps are also eligible for merit-based promotions and yop performers are also recognized annually with our Chairman's Club Award.

I just wanna say it's been a pleasure reading everyone's reviews and hopefully everything is going perfect for the one's who were previously asking about being hired. I, myself am trying to get hired on in the Claims Dept. My mother, was able to reach out to a contact who works up in the Claims Dept area and I am really hoping to get a phone call from Geico.

I've had years of experience in Retail but looking for the next best thing and I believe it can be Geico. :) I just extremely hope I am offered a position cause I would gladly take it.

Also I do eventually want to get into HR and I have a couple of courses in HR but is that enough for HR qualifications at GEICO? once I am in is it possible to switch over to HR? I am looing to work at th New York, Woodbury office.

Hi! From time to time, GEICO has HR opportunities, but typically, those openings are filled internally with current associates (GEICO is very good at promoting from within, and HR is one department that will very often look inside before hiring externally). HR has different focuses, so if we were looking for a recruiter, we'd want someone with some sales / recruiting experience. If it was a benefits position, we would look for related experience. I'd recommend checking out our career videos at www.youtube.com/jobsatgeico to see more about sales, service and claims to get a better sense of the positions. If there were any HR openings, those would be listed on geico.jobs as well.

I hope this was helpful to you!

Thanks for your help!

Hi there! I'm in the Supervisor Leadership Program at the Buffalo office and would be more than happy to answer your question! One thing I've noticed from my peers and other SLP classes (short for Supervisor Leadership Program) is that your actual degree title isn't a determining factor. If you've taken four of the regular business classes (Accounting I & II, Business Law, Economics, Finance, Marketing Information Systems and Statistics) in some capacity, you'll still be considered for the position. For the SLP program, we're looking for graduates with at least a 3.2 GPA and Emerging Leaders need a GPA of at least 3.5.

Each program has it's pros and cons. For example, a benefit to the SLP program is that it's department specific. You'll learn the agent role, develop agents within that role, and ultimately supervise within that role and become a master. The downside, is that you aren't really exposed to the other operations at GEICO (Sales, Claims, Underwriting, MOAT, Auto Damage, etc). The EL program is nice because you WILL experience all of the departments in more of a rotational type role, but you're limited in becoming a master of the craft because you're just breezing through the departments. But you will have a broader understanding of the company and will be able to effectively manage in an upper-level position.

I love working at GEICO. The people, the salary, the opportunity, the job security, the benefits. Plus, I met the CEO within the first few months of working here!

Hello. Does anyone know when Geico pays they're employees and how long it takes to be added to the payroll for a Geico employee. For example, in some companies it may be 3 or 4 weeks before you see your first paycheck due to the way that they schedule they're pay outs. I am trying to schedule and stay on top of my bills in the transition to Geico as an employee and would just like to know what I could expect in the way of my finances. Thank you !

Shann,

I saw that you mentioned you are part of Geico's HR and have been answering several questions/concerns. However, you are not addressing the ruckus in regards to having sick time and not being able to use it. In addition, a common theme seems to be around the company having no tolerance for people missing work, EVEN due to medical reasons such as hospitalization. I am in the screening/interviewing process right now but I must say that I am a bit concerned with the horror stories I am reading. I do know that most of the time people only speak up about the negative aspects or bend the truth out of anger. Yet, it is important for employers to recognize medical emergencies and that a 97-98% "dependability" rate is not always possible. I will say, from what I am reading it is as if Geico would rather you neglect your health to come provide labor to them and then deal with your health misfortunes on your own time. Can you please clarify this common theme for me?

VA2k13 in Fredericksburg, Virginia

Can anyone tell me a few things? HR has been very tight lipped about certain questions and I go in next week to test and interview so any heads up would be appreciated!

1) Salary, is it negotiable? Glasdoor.com ranges the sales rep salary at 30-45K, HR told me 30,700 is the base what can I negotiate? I don't have call center sales experience but I do have plenty of sales experience and won numerous awards in the cutthroat banking industry so I'm not that green behind the ears.

2) Profit Sharing? Is this paid out to the employee annually, or do I have to be there for 5 years to get profit sharing money?

3) What is the average commission paid in homeowners/rental sales? Again, the recruiter offered me no info even though I told her I wasn't going to hold her the to this number but I'd like to have an idea of what I could expect. Also, is this paid out monthly? I can only assume it is paid the month ahead (example: whatever you sell in march is paid in April)???

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!

To my knowledge salary is not negotiable. You start at the base and then work your way up. With that said, I will also say that they do promote you quickly if you do well so I wouldn't let that phase me.

Profit sharing is paid out after you have been there for a year or a little more than a year depending on when you are hired.

The reason they probably won't give you an idea of what the commission would be is because some people don't make anything in commission. I was in the top 50 sales people and I averaged 300 a month in commission. They do hold the commission for 3 months to make sure the policy holders don't cancel before then. So the policies you sell have to stay on the books for at least three months to count for commission. SO in your example what you sold in March would be paid out in June.

Hope this helps! :D

Thanks for the feedback peacefulpaiper, I must admit I'm a little discouraged in taking a 10 K hit on my salary to join Geico, and hearing that being in top 50 only yields 300 a month is also not that good. Is there anything I'm overlooking?

Definitely try sales. I'm in sales and we have the potential for a 5,000 bonus each month. If you do MOAT sales there is no cap so you can make as much as you want! ;)

Can some one help me? What does it take to make good commission and roughly what is the ball park commission for call center? In the Indy area I would need a take home pay roughly 2500 lowest end and 3000 comfort(not struggling)?

Sounds like a fun rewarding career only time I would need to take time off is medical emergency.

Hi - I am a member of GEICO's HR team and wanted to reach out to you. Our Sales representatives receive a base salary + bonus potential after training. In sales, you would have the potential to earn up to an additional $5,000 per month, the average sales associate earns $1,300 per month for meeting their sales goals. All of our sales reps take incoming calls, so there is no outbound telemarketing. I hope this was helpful to you.

Thank you so much for your reply, and honesty. 1300 a month would be hard to make a living on that , I know I can sell im confident it's mainly building relationships and trust . I just wouldn't be able to make it on 1300 a month. Is there any positions that someone can make more then 1300 a month?
