    Legal Support II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Fannie Mae in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Mean, mean recruiters. Especially the ones who work from home and does Fannie Mae's recruiting remotely. Fannie interviews a lot of outside candidates, but end up hiring from within. This is a very nasty practice they have going on.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to reveal all the names of all my supervisors from my previous position. I was very uncomfortable with this line of questioning. Needless to say, I lied because this was none of their business. They really crossed the line!!   Answer Question

    Operations and Technology Campus Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Fannie Mae in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process began with a 1:1 campus interview. The interviewer was a director in a different office than I would work in and was extremely bland. To her credit, I was the last interview of the day. About one week after the campus interview, I received an email inviting me to DC for a final round super day. The super day consisted of three 1:1 interviews with managers or above and a presentation to the entire group. I had the same vibe from the second round interviewers as I did for the initial interviewer that they did not want to be there and it made the interview very dry and boring. All questions were behavioral. Still waiting to hear back.

    Long drawn interview process. Meet with a panel of 5-6 interviewers first. A month or two later meet with 2 senior executives, and another 4-6 weeks later meet with another senior executive. Whole process took about 4 months.
    Questions were mostly process based. Some focus on management style. Hardly any technical questions.

    Contractor On Software Delivery Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Herndon, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Herndon, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Fannie Mae in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    Went through a third party. They have five primary contractors. Find out if your third party is a primary or not. A primary will split a higher amount of pay and you will have less levels to work through. Actual interview was much less formal than expected. Expect the hiring process to take a while. It took me 5 weeks and I was told I was quick.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was handled between my company and Fannie Maes Contractor Resource Center. I have no idea what went on there.
