Helpful (3)Declined OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gallup (Irvine, CA) in July 2015.
After "passing" their online assessment, they email/call you to schedule a phone interview. Phone interview lasts about 30-45 minutes. They ask a series of questions, sometimes expanding on some to either clarify or "dig deeper". The phone interviewers responses to the answers is usual "uh-huh" and then at the end of the interview you are told that a ream will be reviewing the recording of the interview and respond back if they feel you will be a fit for the company.

- No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Gallup in July 2015.
Applied for the poisiton, received a call about 1 week later to set up the phone screen. Phone screen just as everyone else has mentioned. It took about 45 minustes and the person on the othe end does not have any specifics to provide related to the questions asked. Waiting to hear back regarding a second interview...
- Describe how you changed a company's culture Answer Question
- No OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gallup (Washington, DC) in July 2015.
Applied online and had to complete a long personality quiz like other people have mentioned. It took about two weeks before I received an email telling me to call and schedule a phone interview. Set up the phone interview for about a week later. This initial phone interview has absolutely nothing to do with the position you applied for and is conducted by a call center employee. All the questions were personality based and the process took about an hour. There are dozens of other interview reviews with sample questions, prepare answers with supporting examples because it's supposed to be pretty quick-fire. I was told I would hear something within a week, wether they wanted to proceed with my application or not, however, no one contacted me. I called and someone called me back that same afternoon to set up another phone interview with the hiring manager. Normally the second interview would've been in person, but this job was being remotely filled from the Omaha office so it was another phone interview. This one was more relaxed and like a traditional interview. Answered questions about my background, goals, etc. and was given more detail about the position. He mentioned that only about 1/100 people make it passed that first phone screening and I thought it went really well. The manager gave the impression that I would at least be moving to the next phase (a skills test). It took about a week for Talent Resources to call me back and tell me they were pursuing other candidates and that they were adding me to the "talent bank". She strongly implied there were other opportunities coming available in the near future that would meet my skill set. Even though I didn't receive an offer it was a fairly straight forward process and I really like that they let you know either way.
- Do you think others find you intimidating? Do you like to do things the "right" way? Why? Answer Question
- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gallup (Huntington Beach, CA) in July 2015.
It took about a week for them to get back to me and setup and phone interview. Lady calling was form UK and she was very pleasant. She asked a bunch of yes or no and other questions. Nothing technical at all, stuff like do you like to get to work early and why? It took about 38 minutes and she said they'll get back to me. 3 days later I got an email saying in essence that I'm not what they're looking for. The whole this was BS and a waist of my time.
- Are you persuasive? Answer Question
- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gallup (Omaha, NE) in July 2015.
Applied- day 0; Invitation to proceed with phone interview- day 7; Phone interview- day 9; Non-selection email day 14. It was a very bizarre and uncomfortable experience. There is no personal interaction or soft take-off for the interview, you go straight into it. The interviewer acts as a human robot reading questions and cannot give any additional information or react to how you answer. I have a sneaking suspicion that they select candidates to interview as a means of gathering data. After we ended the call I had already made the decision that I did not want to pursue employment with this company; there is a complete lack of human connection. It was a mindfork- deliberately confusing and manipulatory.
- <note> there is a disclaimer at the beginning of the interview stating that their interview questions are proprietary and they are not to be shared. That said.... What do you think about when you're driving? 1 Answer

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Gallup in July 2015.
I applied online and got an email about 2 weeks later to call to setup an interview. I called and the interview was setup for the following week. They said the interview would take probably an hour, but mine ended up taking about a half hour. I was asked a lot of personality-type yes/no questions. Every once in awhile they would ask me to give an example on why I chose that. At the close of the interview I was told this would be sent to a hiring manager and they would decide within 3-5 days. A few days later I receive an email saying they didn't want to go any further with me. This "interview" was pointless. It was all about personality, with questions similar to what I answered when I first applied . There was no conversing allowed with the interviewer about the position. NOTHING about the actual position, skills, etc... It felt like a waste of time.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. I interviewed at Gallup.
Took a test online and got an email to set up an interview shortly afterwards. Was asked several personality type questions and was told right after it was done that they wanted to set up a follow up interview. The follow up interview was longer (1 hr vs. 30 min), but mostly similar questions. They asked me a bunch of questions related to sales consulting (and this was for a research position), and a few questions more relevant to the position (what type of analysis would you do in this case..). I answered the questions very similarly, but got a rejection email shortly afterwards.
- Do you like to try to make the customer look good? 1 Answer
- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Gallup.
An unconventional hiring process. Gallup grounds itself on data, and uses data as the primary driver of the interview process. To find great consultants, they identify the traits that make a great consultant, and they hire those that match.
- Do you like to work independently or collaborate? (an example; I cannot confirm if this was an exact question) Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Gallup in June 2015.
The online application includes an assessment. Be sure to give yourself uninterrupted time to take it. The questions will move in 20 seconds whether you answer or not. You cannot retake the assessment for 2 years, even if you wish to apply for another job. If you understand Gallup's strengths philosophy you will do OK.
- There were different sections to the online assessment -- one part on a scale of 1-5, and then yes/no questions. All behavioral. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gallup in May 2015.
The telephone interview was just like the rest of the reviews! The speaker seemed nice and gave you time to complete your answers! The interviewer was only able to repeat the questions! I am now waiting for a response. Best way to prepare is to write down the questions from the reviews and write down your answers before your interviews!
