Pretty much like everyone on here says--screen, phone interview session, in-person. They ask a ton of questions in the phone interview because they're taking you through a talent assessment. This helps you in the future, as they're determining if you fir the role.

Behavioral interviewing, Grueling, but interesting. It's too bad I have no ability to circle back with my interviewers (I had two telephone interviews) in an effort for self-improvement. During both my interviews, I did not have the ability to ask questions, unless I didn’t hear the question or needed it repeated. It was rather mechanical. The interviewer is seeking the first thing that comes to mind.

Had a brief phone interview where I was asked a bunch of personality questions. Some of these were repeats from the online test taken when I submitted my original application. After the interview, someone from the org looked at my linked in profile, but I later was rejected from moving up in the interview cycle.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gallup.
Had a brief phone interview where I was asked a bunch of personality questions. Some of these were repeats from the online test taken when I submitted my original application. After the interview, someone from the org looked at my linked in profile, but I later was rejected from moving up in the interview cycle. I am not sure how the phone interview helped them make their decision- it felt very systematic and opaque at the same time.
- Questions about whether I would prefer to be paid a salary or commission- this is a very odd question to ask someone who is clearly not applying for a sales oriented job. 2 Answers

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 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.

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.

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 spent an hour filling out the assessment that is part of their application process. I submitted my application at around 6pm. By the next day at 9am, I had a rejection email. I doubt they even took as much time looking at my entire application as I did filling out the online assessment. I think they need to show more appreciation for the applicant. At least create the illusion that you looked at my application.

Same as the other reviews. Submitted online and then received a phone interview. After the interview, I was told I will move to the next round. Second phone interview was set up for the following week.
