- No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gallup (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.
Applied online-Day 0. Application included a Personality Assessment Test, which must be passed in order for you to get to the second interview; phone interview. The assessment test ask a lot of questions regarding your ability to multi-task, views on working in a team setting, ability to prioritize task throughout day, and willingness to sale and market other materials.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gallup (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.
Within one week of applying, I got an email from them telling me to call their scheduling center to set up an interview. Earliest opening was a week later. I know a lot of previous reviews mentioned how robotic the whole phone interview was so I was mentally prepared but it was still very weird and uncomfortable. The interviewer sounded like a robot reading off a list of survey questions. The interview lasted about 30 min and most of the questions were yes or no questions with some asking for elaboration and some asking to rate yourself on a scale 1-5. There was no questions related to the actual position or you skills and the interviewer didn't answer any question about the actual position, she kept saying to save it for the hiring manager. Then 2 days later I got an email saying my profile didn't fit any of their current openings. Such a waste of time, felt like I was tricked into taking a survey.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gallup (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.
I applied online, with a personality test, heard back about the interview within 1 week via email and phone. Interviewed twice on the phone, both a week apart. Finished 2 round of phone interviews by the 3rd week since applying. The 1st phone interview was similar to the online personality test. The second interview was a mix of arbitrary questions with job experience questions. Interviewed by someone who was only having a ONE-WAY CONVERSATION with me. She was not allowed to answer any clarifying questions and was only asking questions. Lots of "coming from the left field" questions. See interview Questions below. Weird and uncomfortable. And at times very intrusive. I didn't think it makes sense to talk about certain things with someone who was not having a conversation with you. It felt stupid, rigid, and dumb. And amazingly this is a company that deals with people as their main business. The approach seem jaded and based on over-rated "scientific approach". However, seeing this process as a glimpse of this company, it answers questions about what it must be like to work there, and why they cannot fill this position for over 130 days. To be fair though, the process was organized and prompt. The Glassdoor interview experiences shared online, and other reviews certainly helped a lot. (Glassdoor:1, Gallup:0)

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Gallup (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.
I applied on their website and got a phone call from them a week later for the 1st round interview. It was a set of behavioral questions and I thought it was easy but I didn't get the 2nd interview.

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Gallup (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.
nonstop personality questions. No real talking with the interviewer. You can barely explain yourself for certain questions when you want to. There are mostly all behavioral questions. It takes about 30 minutes because it consists of 50 questions. It's basically a personality exam you take online but with a person. It can be a little initimidating.

I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Gallup (Chicago, IL) in January 2014.
The hiring process consisted of two telephone interviews that gauged behavior and reasoning as well as work expectations with Gallup - salary, work environment etc. The interviewer does not engage with the candidate, merely reading questions and recording the candidates responses. If the candidate successfully passes the two telephone interviews, then they are invited to a formal face to face interview that includes more typical questions and interview engagement.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Gallup (Chicago, IL) in January 2014.
1) take online test 2) phone interview; they ask you respond, not a two way street. Make sure you prepare for this as they do record it and they are upfront about it being a question after question scenario. 3) phone interview 2; more in depth 4) in person interview- wow them! This is where they are looking for your ability to deal with people, and handle yourself under pressure.
- Tell me about a time when you turned around a bad situation, what do you think are your best qualities, typical behavioral questions. How do you manage a team questions, how do you motivate others, how do you deal with conflict, tell me about a time you overcame a conflict. 1 Answer
Difficult! They know where they want to bring you in, be sure you are prepared to negotiate if that's not ok with you.

I interviewed at Gallup (Chicago, IL) in November 2013.
The same as the rest of the reviews. Unusual behavioral questions, absolutely no feedback. During the interview, you may forget that you're actually talking to a person and not an automated service. Most of the questions that you'll be asked are on this site, so use them as a guide. But you'll never really know what type of answers to the questions Gallup is looking for, so keep that in mind.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gallup (Chicago, IL) in November 2013.
Started with the assessment test and received an email to set up a phone interview within 3 days. First phone interview was 45 minutes about my work style; this is very similar to the assessment. At the end of the 45 minutes I was immediately asked to schedule a 75 minute interview, which I did the following morning. The 75 minute interview was very similar to the 45 minute interview and the assessment. After the 75 minutes, I was told to reach out if I did not receive an offer within 7 days.
