    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gartner (Irving, TX) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I was reached out to several times by a recruiter and decided to take an interview. Two phone interviews with different recruiters were fine but it was a lot of basic, personality questions and very repetitive. I then was asked to meet virtually with someone to access my personality/behavior more. I also had to role play. I was not asked to the next interview round and when I reached out to the recruiter for feedback to help me improve, I was ignored.

    Interview

    The on-site discovery they half is in my opinion terrible way to conduct an interview. It is normal interviews up to that point, but the on-site is so old fashioned it left a bad taste in my mouth on the company in general and left me no longer interested in working there.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Gartner (Chicago, IL) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I spoke to several good recruiters during this interview process (a total of six to be exact). I had some great conversations but if they find any little thing about your experience that’s not a perfect match to the job description, they’ll move on to the next candidate. It’s their right to be picky of course but just want to give other candidates a heads up of what to expect. I literally had to have the conversation with six different recruiters for various positions with 10 days.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Gartner (Fort Myers, FL) in January 2018.

    Interview

    The process is very long and will take a few weeks. Each interview is with a different person and the questions are very repetitive. The last round is a day where they fly you down and you interview for 8 hours doing different interactive interviews. The nice thing is there will be 30+ people with you interviewing for the job, but they are willing to offer everyone a position if they perform well.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Gartner in December 2017.

    Interview

    At first, everything seemed professional. I made it all the way to a presentation where I was given positive feedback but was called by the recruiter a few days later to tell me they would not be extending an offer. I was told they were “so impressed” the recruiter would pass my info along for another position. As I read some of the reviews, it looks like this is another one of their covers. My take on this company is they behave in ways that are not particularly professional and attempt to cover it up by lying to applicants. Plus, their pay is fairly low. Do yourself a favor and keep searching. I can only imagine what life might be like once hired.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Gartner (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    The interview process was incredibly drawn out and lasted in total 6 weeks. I went through with the process due to the positive reviews I've read on Gartner but be prepared to spend some time with this company. Interview included four steps, one with HR, a phone interview, an in person interview and then a panel interview. All of the interview steps were straightforward aside for the panel interview which is basically a crapshoot and can be taken in any direction. If you are interviewing with this company I would ask a lot of questions and be very clear about what the hiring managers are looking for in the final step.
