      Facebook promotes a work environment where the employees define how and where they work best. This means that the work style of each individual within a team may be different and could change over time. Interviewers ask this question to ensure a technical program manager candidate is comfortable working to support this level of flexibility within the teams they serve.

      Written by Karrie Day on June 13th, 2022

      Remember To

      Remember to include flex environment leadership experience from roles outside of project or program management.

      Additionally, be sure to let the interviewer know that you resonate with this aspect of the culture of Facebook if you value flexible work environments. High impact answers demonstrate alignment with a company's goals and values.

      Written by Karrie Day on June 13th, 2022

      1st Answer Example

      "I served as a technical lead for a cross-functional team prior to working as a program manager. Our team worked in a hybrid virtual environment, and I helped to facilitate various remote meetings including daily check-ins, design sessions, feature reviews, and retrospectives. One of the areas of focus for my work in that role was monitoring the efficiency of the team and ensuring that we were connecting properly to resolve issues as quickly as possible. I implemented operating procedures to ensure everyone felt connected and supported. Ultimately, we were able to be as effective away from the office as in person.

      In my current role as a technical program manager, I manage a portfolio of solutions that are developed by four cross-functional teams that are all currently remote. My clients are remote as well. I am responsible for facilitating strategic planning sessions and high-level design and integration discussions. I also work directly with our project managers, product owners, and scrum masters to ensure our teams are properly aligned and following the methodology standards.

      I really appreciate this aspect of the culture of Facebook. It sets the stage for happier employees and for team members to define a work style that adds the most value to their teams on a continual and situational basis. I have found that there is no one size fits all solution to defining the optimal work environment, and I am excited to be discussing a job opportunity with a company that understands this critical and personal aspect of work performance."

    2. What is your upward communication style?

      Remember To

      Remember to demonstrate a style that is clear and honest. Interviewers appreciate candidates that respect authority and show integrity in their approach. Also, be sure to demonstrate direct and succinct communication. Senior business leaders often have limited time for updates and appreciate headline-first communication that drives further conversation as needed.

      Written by Karrie Day on June 13th, 2022

      1st Answer Example

      "In general, my communication style is direct. I use a clear and easy-to-understand approach. I offer summary-level details and I am prepared to back my assertions up with data and examples as necessary. I try not to spend extra time communicating details for items I am able to handle on my own so that my time with seniors is reserved for the valuable insight they can provide in areas that need support.

      I do not typically invest time in trying to avoid difficult conversations. I face them head-on and go in prepared with solution recommendations. I take any feedback that results from these meetings and works hard to incorporate it into my approach for future initiatives. I find the combination of integrity paired with quick and consistent action creates a strong partnership over time with the senior-level stakeholders, managers, partners, and customers I am accountable to."

The integration data layer helped to manage functions such as applicant tracking, approvals, security badge requests, application access, security, and termination rules. I was not the project manager for these projects, but I managed the work of our analysts, contributed to the roadmap, and served as a subject matter expert on behalf of our customers.

      As a program manager, I led a team that developed a cloud-based data warehouse solution that bridged together sales systems across various lines of business. I oversaw multiple projects to integrate financial and analytic solutions with the data warehouse"
