    Ecommerce Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Husqvarna in April 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty standard... phone screen then onsite. The onsite was long but questions were all standard. I interviewed with 4 or 5 members of the management team in 2 different offices for roughly 4 hours.

    The recruiters were not professional, which is the largest contributor to my negative rating. When I arrived, she was nowhere to be found. I met the first interviewer directly and when needing to go to the next one in a different building, I waited for the recruiter for at least 10-15 minutes. She arrived completely frazzled and stressed. About 3-4 hours later, I concluded the interviews and felt I had a decent chance at an offer but unsure if I would have accepted it.

    Before leaving the interview I met with the recruiter again, who said she would get back to me within 3-4 business days (which included a weekend). I followed up about a week and a half later since I never heard from her. Well I never heard from her then either, which absolutely confirmed that this level of professionalism is not representative of a company I want to be a part of. I am happy it didn't work out.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Husqvarna in August 2016.

    Interview

    Process started out with a typical application process. It was followed up with an additional questionnaire a few days later more specific to the role and the territory. Questionnaire required more personal experiences and knowledge as it related to job. There was then a 20 minute phone interview with HR Director. From there I was told the Regional manager for the territory would be in touch, few days later phone interview with regional manager. Upon passing this you will have a in person interview with the regional you manager you spoke with. The final step is they request you to flight back to the home office and interview with senior management where if selected a offer will be extended.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Husqvarna (Dallas, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    After a 15-20 minute phone call with a recruiter who reached out to me we scheduled a follow up call with National Sales Manager. Had another 15-20 minute call with the National Sales Manager and never received a call back after sending follow up email to both the recruiter and sales manager. Overall it was an ok process but expected to be contacted after the process was over.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Husqvarna (Charlotte, NC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a phone screen by HR, phone screen by the hiring manager, completion of a Predictive Index Survey and finally a set of onsite face-to-face interviews.

    The entire process took 6 weeks and everyone was very professional. The team was trying out a new set of behavioral questions so each panel was asking the questions and transcribing the answers. Nothing too difficult but some of the teams seemed to ask very similar questions so it was difficult not to simply say the same answer to different people. Throughout the process everyone was upfront with the next steps and honestly provided feedback.

    The facility in Charlotte is very nice and the team seems to be very well matched. I was impressed when speaking with everyone that they also seem to have personal activities outside of work together (riding motorcycles, etc.) This shows that the team is more of a family than just a place to go to work.

    I was disappointed to not receive an offer but I understand the other candidate had personal references within the business. The lack of a network hurt me with this position but I will be checking back regularly to look for other opportunities.
