Anonymous Interview Candidate
I interviewed at Gartner
I interviewed twice with Gartner, once for their IT division and once for the business unit. The recruiter for the IT division wasn't great and I was cut pretty early. The business recruiter was much better and more enthusiastic. The recruiter will support you 100% along the way and it's very informative. The preparation itself is like a mini training course on business acumen, which is enriching. The interviews alone are weird. It feels like an interrogation - almost every response I gave was challenged in the strangest way, as if they were trying to catch me in a lie. The culture seemed robotic and a little snotty. I ended up withdrawing my application and accepted a different, much better paying position. The pay is WELL below industry standard. My advice to Gartner would be to relax. We're all humans.

I interviewed for two marketing specialist positions at Gartner. Both positions had a three step interview process with a final project at the end. On the first position I had made it to the end and submitted my project, yet had to continually follow up more than a week after submission to hear back that that had moved forward with another candidate even though I was one of the finalists. The HR representative had like me so she was able to find me another similar position she felt I’d be a good fit for. This process was much worse than the one for the first position. Not only did I have to continually follow up before and after each of the three interviews without hearing back for some time to make it through all three. Once I became a finalist they purposely gave me just one afternoon to create and entire presentation to attract a new company to their conference. It was incredibly disrespectful to my time as an applicant to give me needlessly so little time. When presenting the project the following day I was asked why certain specific aspects were not as fleshed out as they could have been. This was very obviously due to the unnecessary time constraint. They attempted to justify this constraint by saying tight deadlines like this are inevitable at their company. To anyone who has worked on projects such as these, you should know the only reason such a constraint would exist is due to poor management. Imagine presenting to a huge company like Google and saying you only spent a single afternoon on preparation. This all reflected very poorly on the managers and company but to make matters worse after over two weeks that still have not followed up with me as they said they would. Even if they offered me the position at this time I would not take it. Nor would I accept another interview for another position.

My interview was 3 steps, technically 4 but step 3 is broken into 2 parts. Step 3 is probably the probably the most because you get to speak to someone in the role in Pt 1 and I’m Pt 2 you do an assessment/presentation/

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Gartner (London, England)
Ghosted by 3 different recruiters, from 3 different countries, during the interviewing process. Last time I heard from them they left me with a "we are a feedback orientated business". So far, no feedback provided, no explanations, no responses to my emails. Very unprofessional.
