Red Bull Application Process
Wingfinder Deep-Dive Personality Test
Skype / Telephone Interview
As you might expect from a business like Red Bull, the application process is not just about qualifications and experience (although this does play a part).
The focus throughout the recruitment steps is to make sure that you have the required aptitudes and personality to be part of the team.
Red Bull online application
All the roles available worldwide are published on the Red Bull jobs site, where you can search by keyword, job type and location.
When you have found a suitable role, you can apply online by filling out the simple contact details form.
You will also have to add a current, bespoke CV and covering letter, so you can highlight the relevant skills, qualifications and competencies that the role requires. With the detailed job descriptions that are on the jobs board, you should be able to do that easily.
Red Bull Matrigma Test
The Matrigma test was originally developed by Assessio, but is now owned by Hogan.
Matrigma tests look similar to abstract reasoning assessments that you might come across in other recruitment processes.
Each question is a 3x3 grid, featuring a sequence of shapes or images. There will be an empty square in the grid, and you will need to find the missing piece out of six multiple-choice options.
The trick to acing an abstract test like the Matrigma one is to find the pattern or rule that governs the sequence. The rule might be colour, number, rotation, movement, mirroring, folding or symmetry.
The Adaptive Matrigma is a short test (just 12 minutes) and you are allowed up to one minute per item. There are a maximum of 40 questions available on the test, although there is no expectation that you will answer all of them.
Wingfinder Deep-Dive personality test
The Wingfinder is a purpose-built assessment, based on 30 years of psychological research, looking at the essential components of employability and future success.
The test focuses on four key strengths:
Connections: how you manage relationships and yourself
Creativity: how you can adapt and innovate
Thinking: how you solve complex problems using logical reasoning
Drive: what motivates you, and how ambitious and disciplined you are
This assessment is split into four sections, each one with slightly different styles of questions.
First is a series of image-based questions, where you will be provided with statements or questions and need to find the image that best represents your answer.
The second is a timed sorting game, where you need to classify words and images into groups while avoiding mistakes. The sorting itself is quite straightforward; each set of words or images fits into either collaborative or independent, then pleasant or unpleasant.
The third is another abstract reasoning test, and this one is also timed. You will be presented with a series of images, numbers or shapes in a sequence. There will be a missing item at the end, and six possible answers that you can choose from.
The last is a scenario-based series of questions, based on your management of a fictional ski team. This is a situational judgement test, designed to see how you would act at work, how you make decisions and solve problems. Each situation will have several possible courses of action, and you need to choose the one that you think would be best.
