    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Fannie Mae.

    Interview

    I dropped my resume at a college career fair and was contacted for an campus interview. I received no information about what type of interview it was going to be and was not reached out to be a recruiter. I went into the interview blind. It was a 30 minute chat with an employee who asked only one or two behavioral questions. The rest was just conversation.

    Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Online application, most everything was done by email or link to a site. Felt impersonal.

    Standard behavioral questions, panel interviews and then interview with hiring manager. It was very formulaic, everyone had their set of interview questions. Not much time to really get to know the people you were being interviewed by. Very process oriented. People on the panel didn't really explain how they were connected to this business unit so it felt somewhat bifurcated.

    Interviews should be a two-way street where the candidate has an opportunity to learn more about the company, job and culture. Recommend to make the process more personal and also allow candidate time to ask more questions and flexibility to go off of the script.

    Interview Questions

    • Search online for behavioral interview questions and you will be prepared.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (Reston, VA).

    Interview

    Easy. Overall dumb experience.
    Interviewers usually get standard Java questions from internet.
    They tend to show off, and stress more on a topic that you did not answer... gosh they forget google is universal and not applicable only to Fannie Mae interviewers.
