    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (Washington, DC) in August 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward! Very nice interviewers and very professional HR. Probably one of the few companies that give you a response after your interview and you application status will be updated via email whether your resume is being reviewed by a recruiter or a hiring manager.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Fannie Mae.

    Interview

    The interview process was largely seamless, but in the end seemed to depend on something that was readily discernible from my resume, which made the entire lengthy process moot. In my second interview with the same interviewer, after interviewing with five other people, I was asked why I had changed jobs so often. My interview took place during the Covid-19 pandemic and it had been widely reported in the press that my current company had furloughed upwards of 80% of its staff.
