Marketing Manager Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Red Bull (Santa Monica, CA) in April 2015.
Applied online. Received an email from their talent recruitment team asking if I'd be available for a phone call. The call went well, really easy to talk to the interviewer but I also think it helped that we were able to chat about action sports and cultural happenings which was important for the role and Red Bull. Really be prepared to talk about the role, your experience and how it fits directly into what they are looking for.

I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Red Bull.
Started with HR by phone, then the hiring Manager. After a couple weeks, they reached out to schedule the in person interview. The environment was very casual and people were friendly. Ultimately, I was a bit uncomfortable towards the end of the hiring process. The background check and providing references is standard practice. But the request to complete a case study and provide a paystub or 2 seems a bit over the top. Despite not providing the last 2, I received an offer.

The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Red Bull (Chicago, IL) in March 2012.
The interview process for Red Bull was supposed to start with a screening phone interview with a corporate recruiter. The recruiter missed our scheduled call and later called to apologize and to inform me that they were going to go ahead and move me forward to an actual phone interview with the hiring manager without the screening. We set up a time for the following week and I was told to allot approximately an hour for the call. The hiring manager and I ended up talking for an hour and a half. We tackled a few of the standard interview questions but he was definitely more interested in hearing how I handled situations in previous jobs that would be similar or relevant to this position's responsibilities... a lot of anecdotal questions and answers. I felt relatively comfortable answering these tough questions even though some of the similarities in situations were a stretch. Even with the tough elaborate questions, the hiring manager allowed a somewhat relaxing, casual tone where we were able to show our personalities a little bit... as much as you can in an interview, especially over the phone. At the end of our interview, the hiring manager decided that he wanted to meet in person the following week to continue our conversation and move into the second and last interview. This in-person interview was held at RB's Chicago BU. I dressed professionally in a full suit and tie but wondered before-hand if I would be over-dressed as I knew RB had a very casual culture. The interviewer was in jeans and a nice dress shirt. I'm glad I dressed up... it didn't take anything away from my candidacy. In fact, the interviewer mentioned that he'd rather see a candidate over-dressed than under-dressed. This interview lasted two hours in one of their office conference rooms. It was almost entirely made up of more questions into how I would handle different situations and what my perceptions were with regards to different RB initiatives, competitors, etc. I thought it went very well. During this conversation some details of the position were cleared up which peaked my level of interest for the job. My only criticism for RB in this application process was they didn't offer to reimburse me for mileage or parking for the 3 hour drive to Chicago and $27 parking garage. It seemed like a small price to pay to a final candidate for such an important position. After a week to ten days, the corporate recruiter called me tell me that they wanted a few more days to make their decision. After those few extra days, I reached out to the hiring manager via email to politely see if they had any updates on their direction for the position. He called me that same day to inform me that they decided on the other candidate. He showed the professional courtesy to explain to me exactly why they made the decision. I thanked him for the opportunity and for taking the time to tell me their reasons for the decision. Although I was disappointed, this small gesture went a long way with me. The people, office, and work culture seemed very relaxing and casual but I did get the sense from my interview that RB was taking steps to be a little more professional and create much more quantitative, measurable steps to evaluating marketing campaigns, employees, etc.

Marketing Manager InterviewAccepted OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Red Bull in August 2009.
The hiring process was good for the most part. It took a long time to get through the process. The people were nice, but disorganized. The culture seemed cool. The feedback was inconsistent and had to reschedule the meeting. In fact, the hiring manager did not show up for the scheduled interview. I had waited in the lobby for 45 minutes as several folks were trying to locate the manger. However, the manager was no show. I had to take more time off from work to reschedule the next meeting.
- How would you change the spin on our brand? Answer Question
There wasn't much of process for negotiation. The angle seemed to be that "we are Red Bull", so the brand recognition is enough.
