    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Fannie Mae in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process included 3 separate interview with 3 hiring managers, each 30 minutes long. The managers were very laid back and did not read off a script or ask you common interview questions regarding situations you may or may have never been involved in. Management really seems to want to know you, however, they did test my knowledge regarding loss mitigation.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Fannie Mae in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    The Process was quite tough. There were 3 rounds of Interview. Two of them were technical roughly 1.5 hours each. Most of the questions were on Data Structures, Algorithms and Analytics. Huge emphasis on Statistics and Randomized Algorithms. Its not only that, if you get selected they have a very tough process of background checks and drugs test. Background test takes a lot of time as the company is very particular about each of the processes.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Fannie Mae in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    you are assigned a recruiter and a recruiting coordinator. Both assist with the interview set up and scheduling. I had a three part interview, Director, Manager, and the Team. The whole interview process lasted about 1.5 hours. Each person/group made me feel comfortable. They reviewed my resume thoroughly and asked very challenging questions as well as presented many possible scenarios. The interview was conversational based, behavioral based, and situational based. The STAR format was used during some parts. I interviewed with the Director and the manager separately, one on one. I was interviewed by the team collectively, panel style.

    Interview Questions
    • How well do you gather data from multiple systems and use that data to deliver results for your manager, director, and other stakeholders?   Answer Question
    • How do you deal with former employees that were given a specific benefit over a period of time, and you have to inform that person they will no longer be eligible to participate in that benefit plan due to immediate changes?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated based on the current range for the market of HR Specialists. Really analyze your skills, know your value, and don't be scared to go with what you want and what you are worth. If you get a feel that your interview went well, and your recruiter gives great feedback that you are a first choice candidate, request a first choice salary and let the negotiating begin!

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fannie Mae in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of a phone call and a in person interview.
    The phone call was relatively simple, as they asked simple questions trying to get a feel of your knowledge of past coding/worked experiences.
    If you pass that test, you move on to the in person interview. It was a 2 part interview where. The first part was in front of 3 current employees (1 was a manager) and the second part was in front of 4 (including 1 manger). They asked business related questions, but overall they are trying to get a feel to see if you are a good fit in the culture.
