Amherst, NY (WKBW) - Throughout the next few months, GEICO's regional office in Amherst will be hiring 300 people. The jobs will be primarily in sales, customer service, and claims within the company's homeowner and auto divisions. Currently, GEICO's Amherst facility employs more than 1,700 people.

"It's always exciting when your adding jobs," said GEICO Hiring Manager Carl Camardo. "Too many companies in Western New York are unfortunately taking away jobs, so to be a company in our own backyard that's adding quality jobs is a tremendous feeling."
