Research Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Gartner in August 2016.

Interview

Initially screened by HR, then the hiring manager. Round three followed two peer interviews and two manager interviews. Round four (which I didn't get) would have been onsite to create and then defend a position paper. HR communicated in a timely manner, and had the professional courtesy to reject my application over the phone.

Interview Questions

  • Questions were broad sweeping opinions about the industry and quickly drilled down to vendor product comparisons. Other questions started with broad sweeping trends in the industry and what was the direction in the future. Those quickly drilled into my reasons for making such statements and what evidence substantiated those statements.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Gartner (Stamford, CT) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Six total interviews, beginning with recruiter/hiring manager and several analysts and director of research. Process was organized and professional with timely communication from the recruitment team. Interviewers were prepared with thoughtful questions. Final interview involved writing a 2-3 page research note and presenting to a panel of four. Writing time was around an hour and presentation time 30 minutes with Q&A. Questions do get difficult. Take a breath and keep your cool.

    Interview Questions

    • Interesting mix of personal and business related questions. Unexpected question: (pharaphrasing) What would your research methodolgy be for a possible product launch in SE Asia after a successful launch in the Americas?   Answer Question

    after initial interaction with the HR you get a chance to go through a written test and face to face round with either Manager or Director.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Gartner in March 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process was very well managed. The communications were made timely and the telephonic and face to face interviews were conducted with utmost respect. People were genuinely interested in getting to know the candidate and did not resort to any aggressive/intimidating tactics during the interview process. A very gratifying experience overall.
