    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Gallup.

    Interview

    Applied online, then took the online talent assessment. A couple of weeks later I received an email asking to schedule a phone interview. The interview was very similar to the personality assessment, and it seemed to have went very well, and I prepared a lot for it, but it seems they are looking for a very specific type of personality. About a week later I got an email saying they didn't have a position that fit my talents.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gallup.

    Interview

    The first round was behavioral, based on the questions I answered during the assessment while applying for the position. They asked me real life examples for the answers I gave for the questions during the online assessment. The recruiter tried to cross question to verify my stand. The interview lasted for an hour. The second round was a technical round.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Gallup.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call to set up a phone interview within a week. Per the interviewer, questions had to be answered "concisely but succinctly." However, the interviewer pushed me to answer questions as quickly as possible, 50 questions in 30 minutes. I felt as though they rushed me through the interview without providing proper time to answer questions. Did not feel as though I was given adequate consideration as a candidate.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gallup.

    Interview

    Applied online, there is a behavioral questionnaire in the application. Within few days got an email asking to call and make an appointment for first phone interview. So I got an appointment for the week after. Look up all the previous comments about Gallup interviews, So I had a decent Idea what it was going to be like. All the questions mentioned in previous comments were asked. I Felt comfortable answering but I knew it had bombed it when she ended it within 30 minutes and had told me it would be roughly about 45. either way, Very fast paced questions, Got to know your answers and be short and sweet it with it. get to the point and avoid extra talking and extra irrelevant points because they would follow up on those.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Gallup.

    Interview

    Very similar to what others are saying. You're being administered a phone personality assessment. They're looking for all type-A personality sort of answers. So when they ask if you'd like to be paid by compensation, you say yes. Say yes to being good with numbers, liking a challenge, living your career, and so on. That's round one. Round two if the same thing, but they'll ask more open ended questions at the end.

    Interview Questions

    • At the end of round two: Is there anything else you'd like to tell us? What salary do you want? The usual stuff, but I was caught off guard after such a long personality assessment.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Gallup (Omaha, NE) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Online assessment followed by an in-depth phone screen consisting of 90-100 questions over a 50 minute time period. Answered concisely within 30 seconds, yet comprehensively and thoroughly. Everyone should note this method does result in a large proportion of false positives (Type 1 error), so enter the process with the knowledge you may be rejected while being a perfect fit for the position and culture.

    I was made aware of one false positive when I interviewed for a staffing agency in town the next day and asked the President/Owner if he was conducting a Gallup interview, since every question and the format/structure were the same. He informed me that he worked at Gallup for 4 years previously, but his interview assessment was proprietary. Gallup's method of assessment and selection certainly didn't exclude the unscrupulous individuals lacking integrity in this instance. Be cognizant that they rely solely on this method for selection, and readily accept its inherent flaws, before engaging in the interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Gallup.

    Interview

    The in-depth initial telephone interview is primarily behavioral/personality questions that included similar questions as the online Talent Assessment completed as a part of the application process. The person conducting the interview was friendly and thorough in explaining the telephone interview process and providing information on the next stage of the selection process. The interviewer can repeat the questions but cannot provide clarifications or interpretations of the questions. I recommend that candidates review the information on the company website about the business, culture and selection process.

    Interview Questions

    • Question response types and examples
