Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Gallup in January 2014.

Interview Details – Unique interviewing process. After an initial screening I took a long, timed skills and personality test online. I passed that for a series of structured phone interviews. These were conducted by a third party who asked you targeted questions about your skills and experience, often multiple times in different ways. Similar to other structured interviews, you can only provide direct answers. Not possible to establish rapport with the interviewer. You can get a good sense based on their website and kinds of questions you get the answers they're looking for. My understanding is this is all recorded and you only get one shot. Questions they were asking suggested this was a more technical position than I had anticipated.

Interview Question – Explain a time where you were good at math, giving a specific example.   View Answer

Difficult Interview

Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Gallup in October 2013.

Interview Details – The process was exactly like the other reviews I found on Glassdoor. The first interview was a 45 min phone screen. ~35 rapid questions. I googled the questions and found at least 10 ahead of time. The second interview was the same personality type questions, this time going more in-depth. Almost every other question the interviewer asked to give an example.

Interview Question – How do you believe employees should be paid.   View Answer

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Gallup in November 2012.

Interview Details – Job seekers are provided a foreshadowing to Gallup's business culture during the interview process. After completing the various forms you will be required to complete an on-line questionnaire to asses your personality, character, etc. Applicants must complete the assessment all at once as it is timed. If you have passed the on-line assessment Gallup will reach out to conduct another assessment via telephone. The phone assessment was a repeat of the on-line questionnaire lasting 30 to 60 minutes. The phone interviewer will ask the same questions every 15 minutes to ensure to validate your responses. Very annoying but they want to measure consistency. Also, the questions at times are vague and require clarification; however, the screener can only repeat the question without any clarification.

The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Gallup in June 2011.

Interview Details – Submitted my application online where I also had to fill out a personality test. Received an email the next day asking me to participate in a phone interview. The interview was competency based and lasted for about 45 minutes. I was not able to ask any questions and had to answer based on my own interpretation of the questions. The second round phone interview was in the same format with more competency based questions.
