Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Gallup (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

Interview

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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gallup.

    Interview

    I apply online via its website. First, it was online assessment test, which is based on only behavioral test. After few weeks, I got a call from HR to make phone interview. The interview was simple as in online assessment test. You need to get the answer from top of your mind. Almost all questions require example or explanation of your answer. So, try to answer based on your past experience.

    Interview

    I applied online. Two weeks later, I got a phone call from HR and set up a phone interview on the following day. HR called on time, and talked about the rules of this interview. The interview took about thirty minutes. And most of the questions are covered by the previous reviews.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gallup in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online, three weeks later I received a call interview. Similar to others, that was a very structured process, basically you just need to repeat what you have done in the online test with some examples. Still in the process, waiting for the second call.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Gallup (São Paulo, São Paulo (Brazil)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    It took approximately 4 months for them to make all the 8 interviews and many similar questions during the process. At times I though they had already given up on me as candidate because they did not give any feedback...

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gallup (Singapore (Singapore)).

    Interview

    If you pass the online personality assessment, first round will be a phone interview. I was told it was going to be completely psycho-behavioral, and it was. The interviewer follows a script and isn't allowed to react or respond to your answers. It took roughly 30 minutes. Questions came fast, one after another so be prepared. Some were odd and many times I was asked to rate myself on a scale of 1-5

    Interview Questions

    • Should a manager focus on under performers or over performers? When was the last time you helped someone? When are you at your best? How responsible are you? rate on a scale of 1-5   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gallup in March 2012.

    Interview

    Process: Psychometric online test --> First Telephonic Interview -->Second Telephonic Interview Note: I have only cleared the first telephonic interview and I was told that my next interview would be the very next day. Anlysis of the interview: I believe that the interview questions were extremely well scripted, with one or two really twisted ones. My interview lasted for about 35 odd mins and had a few questions which I had not come across on any of the forums. One of the questions which I found interesting as it was extremely subjective was - How do you work in an organization with closed people? Others were the usual ones listed earlier - What do you consider a good time for you? - Would you rather sell a few products to many customers or many products to a few customers? - Have you ever changed a culture? If Yes, how? - Do you have to be the boss? - Are you responsible? Explain. - Are you a leader? Explain how. - How do you feel about cynical people in your organization? - Have you ever made someone else make your cause their own? If yes elaborate how? - Have you ever challenged anyone more than what they had been expecting? - Do you always do what the client asks of you? - Do u hold back emotions or do u express freely?

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Gallup (Beijing, Beijing (China)) in December 2011.

    Interview

    it is like a questionnaire. Sometimes, you need to rate from 1-5 or 1-10; sometimes you just need to say yes or no. The first phone interview was scheduled for 30 minutes for about 30 questions, but I just used 20 minutes...I should have said more...At the end of the interview, a second phone interview was scheduled for a week later and I was informed it would be a 45 minute more in-depth interview. I will update the questions for the second interview after that. Questions for 1st phone interview: How much do you prefer working for the top company in some industry? Why consulting industry? Do you order people to do something, describe? Do you prefer working alone or with others, describe? Are you more imaginative than others, example? Several questions about honesty, like how to prove? Examples about keeping promise. Tips: read all the posted interview questions here. Don't be nervous. Focus on the questions (don't say too much unrelated things). Sometimes it is very hard to understand the questions. I guess the meaning changes when the questions were translated into chinese...I guess it is better to give your own interpretation first, if you think the question seems ambiguous.
