Right on the heels of GEICO ‘s 10th anniversary celebration of its regional office in Tucson, Ariz., the company has announced plans to fill 400 new positions in sales, claims and customer service by the end of the year.
“Tucson has provided us with a large pool of talented associates,” said Martha Furnas, GEICO’s regional vice president. “As GEICO continues to grow, we are looking for the best and brightest professionals who are willing to invest in their careers as well as the growth of the company and the surrounding community.”
The Tucson office opened for business in April of 2003 with fewer than 50 associates. Within five years, the office expanded to 800 associates as it continued to gain market share. The regional office now employs more than 1,200 associates with sales, customer service, underwriting and claims responsibilities in seven states.
“Tucson is a great place to live and work,” said Furnas. “We are pleased to be able to provide stable career opportunities and play an integral part in building our local economy.”
College seniors and graduates are encouraged to apply for the company’s Supervisor Leadership Program, an entry-level, fast-track management training program that develops future business and team leaders. Candidates for this selective program are required to have a bachelor’s degree in business, or significant business coursework, demonstrated leadership skills, as well as an overall GPA of 3.2 or higher.
