Sitting for long periods of time, lots of free time to do activities such as homework and other things
Phone Interviewer (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – 18 March 2017
Gallup is a performance based environment. They try to encourage performance by giving a lot of recognition, but it is just the same list of people that they run through to give awards to. You can practically predict it. Some of the managers are very genuine and great people and others can be extremely fake and it is very obvious. Allow for an open schedule but only open from 3 PM to 11 PM Monday - Thursday, 3 - 930 PM Friday, 10 AM - 3 PM Saturday, and 1 PM - 6 PM Sunday.
Consultant (Former Employee) – DC - District of Columbia, DC – 13 January 2017
Gallup is an exciting learning company in theory, but the managers have a hard time practicing what the company preaches. All the science behind their practices is in vain when it comes to internal engagement. Good company to work with, bad company to work for.
Strengths and practical managing tools you can take for life
Phone Interviewer (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – 13 December 2016
The best thing I liked about this job was that I was able to create my own pay based on the amount of interviews I had. I liked being able to set my own schedule, and work as much as I wanted. The only thing I didn't like about this job was that some of the employees seemed to be "Debbie downers" and had a negative attitude. Other than that it was a great job.
A commission based job with incredible pride in their positive work atmosphere.
Professional Interviewer (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – 14 October 2016
It's a fairly straight forward job; you know what is expected of you, you come in and get your work done and leave. The work environment is incredibly positive and encouraging, and there is plenty of room to advance in that career. The cold calling can be difficult at times, and dealing with difficult customers on the phone can be challenging, but in the end, you know what you're doing is going towards something bigger than yourself.
Gallup Technology Portfolio Manager (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – 20 October 2016
Gallup has an amazing culture, which allows for a material amount of autonomy in execution. Their only requirement of employees is the completion of time sheets. This enables the teams to develop ways to complete work that fits the individual or small team needs very well.
Strong recognition program, no time off/sick time policy
Interviewer (Former Employee) – Bellevue, NE – 27 November 2016
For my first job right when I turned 16 making two dollars over minimum wage; I was ecstatic about this job. We made our own work schedule with breaks whenever we decided. I learned how to time managed and it taught me what being accountable for yourself is about.
Telephone Interviewer (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – 30 August 2016
You'll love this job if you like struggling to meet quota and talking to rude people all day. The pay is good when you can actually meet quota which is rare unless you're a chick. Nobody wants to pick up their phone and participate in a stupid Gallup poll. The questions are very personal and repetitive. If I got called by Gallup I'd tell them to f*%# off
Flexible hours. Working in a row on the phones all day.
Telephone Interveiwer (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – 6 June 2016
You make your own schedule but Gallup doesn't open until 3pm. The training takes three to four weeks. During the training period you get a guaranteed $10.00 an hour. Once off the training team you can start on banks if youre good enough. Your days consist of mainly taking surveys. You get a half hour break time that wont affect your dial time, any longer than that and you lose some.
A fun place to work with the best coworkers I've ever had.
Market research interviewer (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – 25 April 2016
A typical day at work involves greeting my co workers, calling clients and gathering opinions about various topics. I enjoy working with all my coworkers and managers. The hardest thing about my job is making sure I spend adequate time with my respondents and making sure that I stay on task. The best part about my job is the opportunity to speak with a wide variety of people.
If Looking for Full-time this is not the job for you
Telephone Interviewer (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – 26 April 2016
i currently work here at Gallup and its a great job but only a great student job or part time job. If youre living on your own taking care of bills and things like that its not the best job. Only reason i say this is because you wont have a set pay itll vary depending on your surveys. Besides that its an okay job i guess.
Telephone interviewer (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – 13 November 2016
I worked at Gallup for a very short period of time. This was because I had been ill and just recently found out I was pregnant. They have a minimal 20 hours you must meet weekly, but with being ill and doctors appointments, I was unable to meet that requirement and was terminated. Truthfully, my medical absents should have been excused, but clearly was not. I was working as a telephone interviewer, and by outbound calls, spoke to various people about taking a survey. Many said no, due to the fact we were always calling around their dinner times, and I was often cursed at, yelled at, or hung up on. Although these statements are true, my experience at Gallup was not entirely miserable. During my employment there, I learned how to professionally handle complicated situations over the phone and how to maintain an understanding of people's time schedules. The management and other employees were very nice, especially during the training period of this journey. It seemed there was always something going on in the office, other than working. They had games set up that you could earn a spot to, and each hour team were able to win prizes.
You could take a break whenever you wanted
Your time away from the computer drastically effected your pay
