If you were in charge, what would you do to make GEICO a better place to work?I would start by paying people for the hours they actually work and not pressure people into working for free off the clock. Then I would hire enough people to do the work. Finally I would look for solutions to make the processes easier and more efficient instead of them becoming more complicated and difficult

What is the interview process like at GEICO?The interview process took about a month and a half. I had a Video interview and was offered the job on the spot. I was asked multiple questions, why would I want to work for them, and what could I bring to the company. There’s also role-playing and questions about previous employers and your education. After the interview, I was sent a boatload of documents to fill out electronically. I had to consent to a hair strand test, educational background, a credit check, and work history. I’m still at GEICO, and so far, the atmosphere is great. I work at the Houston, Tx location (Katy). After being hired, you’re going to have to get an FBI background check with fingerprints and your photo will be taken at an authorized FBI location (if you’re applying for the Claims Adjuster position). If you’re licensed, you’ll just have to sit through the (paid training) two week class and answer the daily class assignments, reviews, and materials but you won’t have to take the state exam but you will have to get the FBI background, be fingerprinted, and your picture taken. If you aren’t licensed, they’re going to provide paid training for two weeks and you’ll then have to take the state exam to be licensed through the Texas Department of Insurance. Geico is paying for the test and you’ll take it at the site. The test is proctored and they supervise you very closely so there’s no cheating or open book so please study and learn as much as you can because you have to pass the exam and there’s no exceptions. There’s no cost to you so that’s a benefit but it’s an extremely hard test so it may not be wise to let your current job go if you aren’t serious about passing. I passed but if I would have known then what I know now, it’s best to maybe use your vacation hours with your other employer for those two weeks and if you pass the test and want to work for GEICO, resign for the other job because you CANNOT work for GEICO in CLAIMS unless you’re licensed. If you don’t pass, you’ll be looking for another job, you’ll only receive a nice two week check from GEICO, and maybe can’t go back to the job that you left to come to them without reapplying, so think things over because you may end up without a job. Once you get your licenses and experience, you can basically go to any insurance that will hire you. The licenses is All Lines so you’ll benefit greatly because you’re licensed through the state.

Why did you leave your job at GEICO?My mental health completely deteriorated after working for this company for not even a year. The micromanagement is astounding - you can’t even do your job without constantly being hounded by supervisors wanting to monitor your every move or telling you everything you’re doing wrong. Management does not care about you personally. If you have kids, don’t take this job. They don’t care if there’s an emergency, even during a global pandemic. The pay was not worth the anguish I experienced while working for this company. The goals they have in place for you are almost impossible, you have to go through blood sweat and tears just to make them happy. And 99% of supervisors will never be able to accurately answer your questions, so don’t expect them to know anything.
