    Business Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Fannie Mae (Washington, DC) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Very repetitive. Behavioral questions mainly. The interview also failed to explain much about the job and it's responsibilities. I made sure to ask many questions but it appeared that the answers I received were very general. It's evident that interview training isn't something that exists. My advice to upper management and HR would be to provide additional training so employees are prepared to interview external AND internal candidates. It's important for the job applicant to understand as much as they can about the job considering the interview process is supposed to be an educational experience for both parties.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Fannie Mae (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    The interview was pretty straight forward. Questions were focused on team building, project schedule management, risk mitigation, business relationship, etc. A lot of effort in Fannie Mae was focused on SDLC process improvement, so a good understanding of SDLC process would be a big help. Other questions were mostly from PMP certification study, such as scope and quality management, task tracking and status reporting, etc.
