She asked me to say my name, spell it, confirm what position i was applying for and lastly my current position. If at any time any question was not clear she would be happy to repeat and i should answer all questions spontaneously.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gallup (Washington, DC) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I had 2 telephone interviews, the first one was around 45 minutes they ask questions that you have to answear according to what comes to your mind first, the second interview took 60 minutes and they ask you for examples. They want positive people, with empathy, that is active. My recommendation is be honest because they ask the same thing in different ways to try to see if you are consistent.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Gallup (Washington, DC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    10 week process. 1 online questionnaire, followed by 2 phone questionnaires. Then 30 min phone call with recruiter, followed by a coaching session and a phone interview with the hiring manager at the local office. Finally, there was a 3 hour in person interview with 5 employees.

    The process is very long. Im sure they miss out on a lot of talent because of this.

    Interview Questions

    • The personality assessment part (online and the 2 phone follow up) are modeled after the Gallup Strengthsfinder questions.

      Once you get to the recruiter, it's all basic behavioral questions. "Tell me about a time you had trouble with a customer", or "if you were an animal, what animal would you be"

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gallup in May 2016.

    Interview

    I initially thought it was going to be a one-on-one interviewer, but I was called by the company location's business administrator. It turned out to be a panel type interview, after being called for an interview. Prior to this, there is a personality screening to see if you would fit the job description.

    Telephone Interviewer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Omaha, NE
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Gallup (Omaha, NE) in April 2016.

    Interview

    When you are taking the online personality quiz, remember your answers! The phone interviewer will ask you these questions again, but this time he will ask you why, how, what do you mean? You will also be asked to rate yourself on a scale of 1-5. If you do well on the phone interview you will be invited to the group interview.

    As other reviewers have stated, this feels more like an orientation. They give you a folder with information about Gallup, the position, working hours, benefits, etc. During the group interview, they asked two questions and went around the room giving everyone an opportunity to answer. There was a PowerPoint presentation with sample polling questions you may ask customers when making outbound calls. Everyone is required to read a paragraph or so to demonstrate their phone voice.

    Important takeaways: Gallup is not looking for career professionals for this position. They specifically stated "this is not a foot in the door position." Translation: This is a dead end job, so you better be ok with that. They also stated, "if there is another position within Gallup you want then you should rescind your application for this position." Further, they explain that after your first 4 months, you are free to apply for another position, but your application will be thrown in with all other external applicants. They do not hire from within. Moreover, the interviewees are mostly 16 and 17 year olds.

    The $11/hour is smoke and mirrors. It is only promised for your first 8 weeks. After that, you are working on a per interview completed commission. You will never make less than minimum wage/hour but you are never guaranteed to make more than that.

    Finally, this group interview may feel like an orientation but you are still not guaranteed the job. You will receive an email a couple of hours later either with an invitation to complete a background check or a canned email which states: "the position for which you applied is not one that would take full advantage of your strengths."

    Good luck!

    The phone interview was a set of twenty questions that asked about the applicant's personality.

The process took around an hour with only one question asked in relation to the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Gallup (Omaha, NE) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Once you submit your application online, you will be directed to a online assessment. If you pass that you will receive an email to call an 800 to setup an appoint with a screener. The screener will give you a series of questions (60) that they can't explain and need an answer for. On some of the questions they ask to explain more. If you pass that, you will receive an appointment for another phone interview. Basically the same questions with a couple related to the position your applying for. There were a lot more questions. All of these conversations are recorded. If you make it past that part you will get to actually discuss the job. I didn't! After reading reviews sounds like a koolaid factory.
