Did you guys do the skyrise test? I did it last night and wasnt anything like what i expected. I thought would be similar to fidelity's pymetric but it was just 20 logical reasoning questions ( guess the number in a sequence). I swear i read somewhere on their website the results of the test wont take part in their decision on applications.. Also, how long after this did you hear back? Thanks

You're correct. On their Application Process page, it states "This year we are piloting this latest game-based assessment so your results will not be used to inform the final decision about your application."

I think it took one or two working days for them to invite me to sit the online tests.

Just a very generic competency based interview. Nothing to be worried about. I can't remember the exact questions but it was very heavily competency based.

Samantha, do you have a rough idea of the questions e.g. Leadership/teamwork/a time you worked with 2 or more cultures? Also, does anyone have any more details on the Numerical and logical tests that follow the Skyrise City game? Would be much appreciated!

Thanks for the heads up! Could you remember how long you got to answer each question?

You have three or four sets of questions (I can't remember but 12 questions in total). For the first one in each set you have 90 seconds and the rest 75. Personally I would not rush to the next question even if I have already worked out the answer but to use the extra time to study the tables since I might be running out of time looking for the right numbers in my next question.
They have sample tests on the Talent Q website if you haven't seen them

Thank you, did the sample and the actual tests earlier. Missed two questions (time ran out..) on the numerical although i reckon i got the other 10. also i found the logical test unusually easy. How long after the tests did you hear back?

I think it took one or two working days for them to invite me to sit the online tests.
In the email I received for the Skyrise test, it was mentioned,
"Things to remember before you start:

• We’d encourage you to complete this somewhere quiet without any distractions. It’s fun but remember you’re being assessed. "

So, I think it was assessed.

Btw, what role are you applying to?

Good Luck!

2 mins. Very tight. I did fine with 3 mins for another video interview. Don't wobble. It's all strength based so not "when did you work in a team" but "do you think teamwork is important" so just say "yes. I once worked in blablabla". Or state your opinion then give a brief example. I ran out of time for some questions.
