    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (Herndon, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Got a call from FannieMae and a phone screening was set up , phone screening happened within 3 days , questions were mostly basic technical , got good feedback and was called in for an in person interview. In person interview was taken by three persons and was asked lot of questions technical and behavioral as well. Somehow i didn't liked the attitude they had and was not getting a good vibe ,although i was able to answer most of their questions.

    Total process was about 2 weeks , after 2 weeks i get an email from HR saying the position that i had applied for was cancelled .

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I met the recruiter and some analysts at a career fair and interviewed the next day. The interview was mostly behavioral with some technical questions thrown in there. Pretty standard questions - why Fannie, what does Fannie do, describe the mortgage market. From what I can remember the technical Q's had to do with evaluating risk, WACC. The second round was a week or two later at the HQ in DC. Very cookie-cutter behavioral interviews broken into a few rounds. One round is a case study.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (Mount Washing, OH) in June 2016.

    Interview

    First was a phone interview with basic behavioral questions. Then I was invited for an in person interview where I met with 3 separate managers. Two of them only asked behavioral questions and questions about my resume. The third was a role-play scenario about interacting with a coworker who was behind schedule on a project you were working on together.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (Addison, TX).

    Interview

    In person; met with the hiring manager; professional; standard questions; more of a personality check on whether they like you, understand you and what you have to offer. They didn't really ask specific questions. The questions were more generalized and in your own words. It took about 45 minutes and overall it was casual and friendly. From the beginning, it was obvious the interviewer was nice, funny, but a bit uncomfortable with the interview process. I am certain I saw a script of questions.
