    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (Washington, DC) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Not that painful. concise questions just be prepared with common sense interview answers and be calmed and paused.

    Most of the behavioral questions were not difficult. When they give you a chance to expand your answers try to talk about your past experiences and be concise on your skills.

    Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Fannie Mae (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Five one-on-one interviews in five hours. Most of them were very friendly and felt like your usual interview.

    However, one interviewer was so rude that I was immediately turned off. I knew that even if I was given an offer, there was no way that I would be comfortable or happy working here.
    He started off by saying he was tired from a day of interviews. Every time I answered his question, he would give me a blank stare and snap back in a sarcastic tone of voice. This was even when I got the question correct, he would snap and just say "okay, let's move on". I have never been part of such a horrible encounter, let alone during an interview.

    Remember, an interview is not only the firm's way of getting to know a candidate, but a candidate's way to know the firm. This right here was a red flag to me.

    Interview Questions

    • Three case interviews based off of economic and statistical knowledge.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    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.
