    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fannie Mae.

    Interview

    I was greeted quite friendly by the hiring manager, who explained the company to me briefly, as well as the interview process. I then took part in three separate interviews by three different groups, each lasting roughly 30 minutes. Each once went over my resume and asked me detailed questions about my skills and experiences, and sometimes challenged me to solve some sample problems. I received the results of my interview within 24 hours.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fannie Mae.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a phone interview in a week.

    The recruiters were fine, but the interviewers are awful.

    They asked basic Java OOP questions, but kept cutting me short of my answers, as well as asking to use their examples, where they kept rejecting every answer I gave. They were very bad at clarifying what they were trying to ask for and kept saying "no." They had an attitude when talking as well.

    The interview felt like it was rigged against me. I'm glad I didn't get to continue, since I would definitely not want to work with the interviewers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (College Park, MD) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through my university recruiting website with only my resume, and had a single behavioral on-campus interview. After about a month I got a call from a recruiter with my offer.

    I asked to see the terms and conditions of the offer and was told: "Unfortunately we do not send an official letter or the link to agree to our offer terms until a candidate has accepted the offer."

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (Reston, VA) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I applied at my university's career website and talked to a recruiter at our career fair. I was notified that I was selected to interview with them on-campus, which was just a 30-45 minute one on one interview where I was asked mostly behavioral questions and one coding question, and any conceptual technical questions if the conversation steers in that direction.

    I was then invited to their onsite interview in their building in Reston. it was all-day but the style of interviewing was unique and, actually, kind of fun. It was almost like speed dating, but with an interviewer. I talked to 3 interviewers, which involved a mix of behavioral, technical, and brain teaser questions! All my interviewers were very nice and enjoyable to talk to!

    In the end, I got an offer from them! I have yet to accept it tho.
