    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (Dallas, TX (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The process took about a month. I applied online and HR reached out to me to set up an interview. I had an onsite interview with a 3 person panel and a skype interview with the director. A week later they set up a phone interview with the team manager who was previously out of the office. A few days later, they set up an interview with the VP of the division. I received an offer 2 days later. Most of the questions were about my background and knowledge of derivatives.

    Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA (US)) in September 2010.

    Interview

    This was a very basic behavioral interview. I hate this type of interview because there is practically no way to measure performance. I interviewed one week ago, so I am still waiting to hear back. The questions were fairly basic, such as: "Tell me about a problem you faced and the solution." I'd rather do a case interview, at least they show if someone is smart enough to be an analyst.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Freddie Mac in April 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter a couple of days later (beginning of the week). He wanted my availability for a phone interview that week. I immediately provided my availability. Friday came and went, but I hadn't heard back.

    I emailed the recruiter to see if they were still interested in speaking to me. He said yes and to provide availability for the following week. Got the interview set up.

    Spoke to 2 individuals that are peers to this position. Basic interview about my background and my experience. They did ask if I had experience in a particular area, that was not mentioned anywhere in my resume.

    Contacted the recruiter after the interview (as requested by him) and left a VM. It's been over a month and I haven't heard anything, so I guess I'm out of the running. Would have expected a "thanks but no thanks" email.
