    QA Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Freddie Mac.

    Interview

    Honestly, it was an ok interview. Pretty straight forward definitely know your resume. Know how to explain your projects and your responsibilities. Always make sure to take on to the sentence with "I did this..." and not "we as a team..." This will help them understand that you are a key on your team and you will be one in the team they're hiring you for. Be honest.

    Director Interview

    Interview

    Initial phone screen was setup for 30 minutes but the interview lasted only for 20 minutes. General questions about resume. One week later got an automated message saying that l wasn't selected. Turns out they already had someone in line. They just post and do interviews for audit purposes to show that they have interviewed a bunch of candidates. If you don't know someone don't bother interviewing here. Most of the postings are just for show.

    Very professional interview process. Several interviews with key management. The entire process took a while but it went extremely well and allowed me to learn a lot of about the position. Was able to ask a lot of questions and got the answers I needed.

    In person at the office in multiple rounds— I would say expect a 3 hour process at the least. Slight behavior majority sql testing on table joins. Essentially a test on how well you know how to code

    Audit Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with the hiring manager (after the original interview with recruiting). Hiring manager was 15 minutes late to the call and did not even apologize. And the person cut the call short for another meeting.
    Overall very awkward experience- in my 10+ years, never had anyone who was late for an interview and blatantly unprofessional. A great way to portray what Freddie Mac is. Even if offered a job, would not want to work here.

    Interview

    I was formerly a contractor, so everyone knew me and the interview felt like a formality. I cannot speak to how someone new to the company would interview. I don't have more to add on this unfortunately as my interview was more of a shift in position.

    Senior Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Freddie Mac.

    Interview

    I was brought in for an on-site interview, but it seemed like the person interviewing me had no interest in me from the start, and I detected a rather combative attitude. Perhaps the position was already filled, but it was certainly one of the stranger and more jarring interviews in my career.
