    27. What is your greatest weakness?

      Why the Interviewer Asks This Question

      This common interview question is an opportunity to demonstrate your self-insight. Interviewers ask this question to learn more about your self-awareness and ability to reflect on room for personal improvement. Further, it's an opportunity to screen out candidates who may actually have what the interviewer sees as a make-or-break weakness.

      Written by Rachel Hills on March 7th, 2022

      How to Answer

      Give an honest answer about a real weakness you have been focusing on, and describe your plan to work on it. Just make sure the weakness isn't a core competency of the Red Bull job description. Reflect on traits you want to work on but won't affect overall job success.

      Honesty and self-awareness are key for this question. Interviewers have heard it all and will see through phony attempts to present a trait as a weakness when it's not.

  • Leadership

    30. Do you have experience training others?

      Why the Interviewer Asks This Question

      Depending on the rate at which the team that you're applying to is growing, your manager may ask you to train new employees once you've gotten up to speed in your new role. This is a straightforward question that allows you to answer either 'yes' or 'no,' and then detail what this experience looked like if you answered 'yes.' If the answer was 'no,' your answer will demonstrate to your interviewer your level of motivation to grow in a role with Red Bull.

      Written by Rachel Hills on March 7th, 2022

      How to Answer

      If you have experience, talk about how you used your strengths and skills to teach others. Briefly explain how this experience went and what you took from it.

  • Salary

    32. At Red Bull, we offer competitive pay and benefits. What are your salary expectations?

      Why the Interviewer Asks This Question

      Ah, the dreaded salary expectations question. Interviewees often feel uncomfortable discussing compensation, worried that they will give a number that's too high or too low. Answering this question tactfully requires a delicate balance of knowing your professional worth, while also understanding what Red Bull can realistically offer you for compensation.


      Written by Rachel Hills on March 7th, 2022

      How to Answer

      Rather than giving a specific number, it's best to provide a realistic range that allows room for negotiation. It's helpful to do your research beforehand using various online resources to ensure that you have a good idea of the salary range.

      If you're unsure of a fair range for this position, this question is an opportunity for a discussion with the interviewer. To avoid pigeonholing yourself into a salary that's lower than what they might offer you, you can ask your interviewer to share the typical salary range for the role.
