found the job posting from internal job database. minimum HR involved. had 2 rounds of panel interviews, during both interviews, management from different teams were arguing with one another, moreover, VP was yelling at one of his director right in front of my face. I was offered 3rd round interview with the VP, I turned down the interview due to obsearvations made in previous 2 interviews. Sensed tight conflicts within the org, and unpleasant management styles.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Fannie Mae in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The first round phone interview was very technical. The interviewer was a financial economist. The topics include bond math, options pricing, derivatives on bond, monte carlo simulation, and various other financial math questions. The overall level of difficulty was not that bad. I think I got 80% of the questions right with minimum amount of hint. But, I did not get the offer. No resume questions were asked and there was no room for making personal connections through a more casual conversation.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Fannie Mae in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had applied online on the fannie mae career website. I was contacted by an Recruiter from fannie mae 3 weeks after i applied. He seemed nice and asked general questions about my background and informed me the job i had applied and scheduled an interview with the team for which the positions was. The interview was technical and generally consisted of general questions. He also asked me few technical questions and if i had applied any of the softwares i had learnt in actual jobs. The interviewer although i felt was less interactive.I would recommend get your financial basics clear if your applying here. I guess that is of prime importance
