CORALVILLE, Iowa - Auto insurer Geico plans to add 100 associates by July at its Coralville office, filling an assortment of positions in sales and customer service.

Geico will host a "Careers Open House" from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 10, at its office, 2213 Second St. The company is adding employees due to steady growth. Job seekers are encouraged to apply online at Geico Careers prior to the open house.

Geico’s Coralville office opened in 1997 with plans to employ about 200 associates. But as the insurer's policyholder base grew, that number doubled to almost 400 employees.

"Coralville has provided us with a large pool of talented associates," said Lona Montgomery, Geico’s Coralville director. "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."

College seniors and graduates are encouraged to apply for Geicos supervisor leadership program, an entry-level, fast-track management training program that develops future business and team leaders.

Candidates for the program are required to have a bachelor’s degree in business, or significant business coursework, demonstrated leadership skills, as well as an overall grade point average of 3.2 or higher.

Geico (Government Employees Insurance Co.), owned by Omaha-based Berkshire Hathaway, offers competitive starting salaries, paid training, a comprehensive benefits package and continuing education.
