    Pros

    Gallup's calling center allows you to make your own schedule so the flexibility they offer is very nice. Very friendly work environment. The management team is approachable and willing to aide in your success.

    Cons

    This is not a job to have if you are looking for day work. With schedule flexibility comes responsibility and you must be able to get your weekly hours in on-time.

    I worked at Gallup part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Very flexible schedule (especially if you're a student)
    - They do a lot of fun activities around the workplace
    - The pay is decent (only if your performance is high though)
    - There are many incentives to make extra cash or earn prizes
    - Some of the managers are caring

    Cons

    - Some of the managers only seem to care about performance above anything else
    - They throw random mandatory hours on you
    - The managers can be very snarky at times and give attitude
    - There isn't a lot of positive feedback, they constantly get on you about little things
    - It seems at times that you can never do anything right, they have some unrealistic expectations

    Advice to Management

    You cannot force people to do surveys if they don't want to take them, they won't. Do not harp on your employees and have unrealistic expectations. Also, please act professional and courteous at all times.

    I worked at Gallup part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At gallup you have the opportunity to make more money than the base pay because your pay is performance based. So if you work 20 hours in a week, but you get 110% of your quota, you get paid for 22 hours! Flexible hours-basically as long as you hit your required hours for the week, you can come and go as you please. Perfect for the schedule of high school and college students looking for part time employment

    Cons

    The job was often times very repetitive, so it could get boring. Also it can become frustrating to get people to answer questions in an accurate manner.

    Advice to Management

    Training is very good, employees in training get to know exactly what they should expect. Managers should cut the workers more of a break on "mis codes"

    I have been working at Gallup part-time

    Pros

    -Make your own hours
    -Managers generally understading
    -Can make good money on a very good day
    -Can do other things while working

    Cons

    -Paid by commission. You can do amazing one day and make good money but then if you do bad another day it balances out so you generally never make more than base pay
    -Probing: you have to get a specific answer an If you don't you have to probe the respondent and this can make them very angry
    -You get yelled at by respondents multiple times a day
    -you can spend 10 mins on a survey and if they don't make it to a certain point you don't ger credit
    -they say you are guaranteed minimum wage if you don't make the quota. But if you have a few bad weeks you can get fired
    -it's more luck than skill. There is some skill to getting people to do it. But it's generally about who you call
    -after about a month or two of working there, it gets extremely tedious
    -open from 4pm to 11pm on week days so you have to stay late to get a lot of hours
    -open during the day on weekends but it's a lot harder to do well becusse no one wants to do a survey on the weekend
    -they make it sound nice because you can do homework or read while you work, but it nearly impossible to do that while calling people
    -if you aren't a "tracker" you don't have a desk. You have to find a new one everyday
    -people sit at other peoples desks and use their headsets which is very unsanitary
    -you have no actual break time. You can take a break whenever you want but it counts as non dial time and takes away from your percentage for the day
    -most surveys are 10+ minutes. Most people don't want to spend that much time answering questions
    -you aren't even allowed to tell the people the specific topic of the survey which turns people off
    -commission seems nice, but you could work a 3 hour shift and make no money
    -hard to work a long shift without getting extremely bored

    Advice to Management

    Fix you surveys- wellbeing is way too long. There are multiple questions that are exactly the same. There also needs to be an option for retired on the employment question

    I have been working at Gallup full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours: you schedule your own hours, High performance level means more money, friendly environment; during school, you're allowed to do your homework. During the summer, I usually just watch Netflix while working.

    Cons

    You HAVE to get your hours in or you get into some trouble, if you're also not hitting quota, your paycheck is gonna look sad

    Advice to Management

    Make the job less stressful on students, we will try to make up the hours we miss on a personal day, but if we're allowed personal days, don't continuously make it seem like we HAVE to make it up.
