I worked in the customer service department at GEICO and my starting pay was about $15/hr but there is a raise associated with graduating training that is about 6% and 2 more raises that are easily earned within a year. I was making around $18 when I left the company. The benefits package was really good. My health insurance rates actually went down and the co-pay was reduced when GEICO renegotiated the contract. There is an annual merit raise that is pretty well guaranteed. Mine was about a 5% increase in salary. Lastly, the yearly bonus is amazing. The one drawback is that you have to work there a full year to earn it. Everyone in the company gets a percentage of their income in a bonus check. The year I worked there, the bonus was 15% of annual pay. It seems to range between 10-20%.
