    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Fannie Mae.

    Interview

    Phone interview with recruiter, 1:1 interview with hiring manager, interview with other peers, then panel interview with HR and sr. execs. Multiple rounds of interviews. Because I was recruited by an internal employee, I didn't have to go through as much in the interview process. It was somewhat of a simple process because the job was targeted for me.
