The Talent Q assessment at Bertelsmann

For the Bertelsmann hiring process, you will be required to pass the Talent Q assessments. This test is adaptable and, depending on whether your response to a question is correct or incorrect the system presents you with a subsequent question of either greater or lesser difficulty until your appropriate difficulty level is found. There are several different sub-categories to the Talent Q test:

  • Talent Q Elements: The Talent Q Elements series is a collection of three different tests—numerical, verbal, and logical. These are used in the hiring process of supervisors, managers, and any other high-level positions. Each test has between 12 and 15 different questions that vary in difficulty level.
  • Talent Q Aspects and Abilities: The Talent Q Aspects and Abilities series is a set of three different tests—verbal, numerical, and checking—which are usually administered online. Each takes between 5 and 10 minutes to complete. Talent Q Aspects also contains a personality test known as Styles. Styles is a personality, competency-based questionnaire. It uses 16 different character traits to assess candidates. On this test, you are presented with a series of different statements, and you must rate how well they match your personality on a five-grade scale, from completely untrue to very true.
  • Talent Q Dimensions: Here, you have 25 minutes to complete the test. You are given a statement, such as 'How true is each statement below in relation to your behaviour at work?' You are then given four different statements that you must rate on a five-option, true-based scale. There are 160 of these statements, all relating to different behavioural trends.
