Geico to hire 230 at Macon office

Already 4,000 employees strong, Geico’s regional office in Macon plans to hire another 230 workers, the company announced Wednesday.

“Macon houses the company’s largest regional office and we employ thousands of the area’s local residents,” Meredith Rosser, Geico regional human resources director, said in a news release. “Since Geico’s business is continually growing across the country, we’re constantly looking for bright, new employees who are looking for career opportunities.”

The jobs in the office’s centralized services division will serve all 50 states, with a variety of positions including emergency roadside services representatives, glass claims reps, accident tow dispatchers and salvage/total loss specialists. Geico also will continue hiring sales, service and claims representatives for its regional auto insurance operations.

The Macon office serves the Southeast and Midwest regions, 15 states and 1.8 million policyholders, said Mary Zarcon, Southeast regional vice president. About 4,000 employees work in the office, along with adjusters and other personnel out in the field.

“We have another 400 or 500 out there who are everywhere from Valdosta to Chicago,” Zarcon said.

The descriptions for the new jobs seek candidates with strong written and oral skills, along with multi-tasking and computer skills. Rosser describes the company as stable, with “a lot of opportunities for promotion.”

Zarcon noted the expansion news came one day after the United Way of Central Georgia announced that for the seventh year in a row, Geico finished as the top donor to the charity’s annual fundraising campaign. The company’s employes raised more than $856,000.

“Knock on wood, in these tough economic times, we’ve been able to continue to be hiring and growing,” said Zarcon. “Not only are we growing, we’ve got a great group of associates who continue to contribute to the community.”
