How's the pay? :P

Thing called teams (How many hours you worked) mine was 9.75 at 100 percent capacity (quota) but hardly got paid that. Minimum wage increased in my state is probably more now.

Who pays for Gallup's services and how does that affect the questions asked and results disclosed?

A lot of companies will pay them to do polls. I did a lot of bank calls where we would ask about their experience, other stuff like that. I'm also sure they get something from media will all their data being publicized but I'm not sure.

1) What is your work environment like? Any targets to hit, any way to make an extra buck or two? 2) Which co-worker do you hate the most, and why? 3) Is this a means to an end, or is poll-taker your dream come true?

1.) I am paid entirely on a quota-based system. The more work I get done (the more people I take entirely through a survey to the end) the more I get paid. If I want to make more money, I just have to talk to more people before I go home. 2.) I don't really hate anyone that I work with. 3.) We have a very generous tuition reimbursement program. I'm a college student so having a flexible job that pays relatively well plus some of my tuition is exactly what I need. No this is not my dream come true, though.

Is "Poll Taker" your real job title?

My official job title is interviewer but people in general would know my job as poll taker.
