Accountant Interview


I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Fannie Mae.

Interview Details – Extremely professional and communicative. I really liked the recruiter I worked with throughout the entire process.

Only came in for one round of interviews - two with directors and two with managers (one being the hiring manager). Most of the questions revolved around fit and walking the interviewer through my work experience.

Recruiter called me back within two hours offering me the position and I accepted.

Difficult Interview

NUC Review Appraiser Interview

NUC Review Appraiser
Dallas, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Fannie Mae.

Interview Details – Typically start as a contractor first, gives them a chance to 'kick the tires' if you will. Must be flexible and able to think out of the box, this is not a typical review position and only the best thinkers make it there. Have to illustrate in your interview the ability to be humble and adaptable to learn. This is Fannie Mae, among the pinnacles of the appraisal profession. Your 10+ years as an appraiser mean nothing compared to the experience and people there, so leave your bravado and attitude at the door...or you won't get in the door.

Interview Question – How you do you feel about change?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I started through a head hunter, then they converted me to an employee after I proved myself.
