GEICO adding 500 new Macon jobs | News
With more than 5,000 employees, GEICO is Macon-Bibb's largest private employer.
Now, they're planning on adding another 520 new jobs by the end of the year.
Assistant VP of Claims Suzanne Worthen says a combination of business growth and Macon employees transferring to other locations has led to the large amount of new job opportunities.
Worthen says the new positions include sales, service, claims, and emergency road service, all jobs handled at their Macon call center.
The salary range for the positions range between $28,000 and $40,000, depending on the job.
Worthen says employees are trained on the job and no specific experience is required.
"This might be a situation where they're had multiple jobs in the past, but if you love working with the general public and have a great attitude, those are the type of people that we're looking for," Worthen says.
