Current Employee - Salvage Specialist in Macon, GA (US)

I have been working at GEICO part-time

Pros

From what I can tell, the benefits are pretty awesome. The health insurance is top notch, they have profit sharing, 401k, in my department we have 6 paid holidays and 4 floating holidays. 3 sick days and 3 personal days plus 2 weeks of vacation. I think that is a pretty sweet deal. You get what you put into it. I work hard so I plan on it paying off. If I slack off then I deserve what happens next.

Cons

Parking is a down side. In training you get a 1 hour lunch and then when you hit the floor you only get 30 minutes. Tough since you have to go downstairs to get lunch. That's about it for the cons.

    Current Employee - Experienced Auto Damage Adjuster in Woodbury, NY (US)

    I have been working at GEICO full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great, medical, dental, etc.
    Profit sharing can be good, depending on the year
    Company car and gas card
    Adjusters generally are willing to help/look out for each other

    Cons

    Managament disconnected from the rest of the company
    Grossly unrealistic goals
    No clear directions
    "Fly by the seat of your pants" feeling
    Lack of consistent judgement/processes
    Ridiculously large workload to the point of overwhelming almost all the time
    Too much responsibility on the adjusters (one person can only do so much)
    Lack of adequate staffing
    Favoritism
    Management holds grudges
    Micromanagement
    Long hours, low compensation when compared to workload and other companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to explore what it actually takes to complete claims, start to finish, in regards to our portion. The focus is on customer service only, everything else comes second. As adjusters it is our responsibility to mitigate losses and reach a fair and reasonable settlement. This may not always make people happy, in fact, often people may dislike us. This does not allow us to be the friendly face that we are always expected to be. Asking adjusters to force people into accepting a lower settlement and then telling customers that they should be happy with our service is not exactly the greatest way to make customers happy. You cannot measure file severity against a geographic reason, some adjusters such as myself, see a lot of exotics/high end vehicles that skew our numbers. in the end, we get punished for doing more work because the repair costs are higher. If the company and management would actually examine the day to day of the adjusters, a realistic expectation and understanding would improve the job significantly.
