    IT Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Freddie Mac in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The first round was a phone interview. Most of the questions were behavioral and afterwards the interviewer asked about field preferences. The second round was conducted at the Freddie office and was broken up into two 30 minute interviews. One technical and one behavioral. The questions were fairly easy and straightforward.

    Change Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Freddie Mac.

    Interview Details

    First Interview: Phone screening with the Release Manager
    Second Interview: Physical interview with the Release Manager and a Configuration Manager

    The Release Manager, who was technical, was extremely rude and clearly lacked the people skills necessary for Change Management. He seemed almost annoyed that he had to conduct the interview and demanded that you answer questions in a discrete Q&A manner, as oppose to a normal conversation, which provides context to your responses.

    The way he conducted the interview was as if he was auditing/interrogating you like you made an unauthorized change. The RM was completely unprofessional and clearly shows the culture/operating environment at Freddie.

    Interview Questions
    • The RM will ask you in detail on how your generate drift/unauthorized change reports. Some change managers create these reports, others are consumers of it. It seems that the RM wants you to be able to create these reports from auto-discovery.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Freddie Mac.

    Interview Details

    Slow process. From first delayed response from application, to telephone interview, to hire, several weeks to months..Intimidating panel interview, and not only one, but at least two interviews. Would be nice to be notified that they went with someone else or another way.

    Interview Questions
    • Asking psychological questions, which is off-putting and nerve wracking, not knowing what they are really looking for.   View Answer

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Freddie Mac.

    Interview Details

    Oppose to the traditional "we would like to meet with you", the recruiter will call and ask you a few questions over the phone. After the phone interview, they would send you a few questions to answer and return to them. Those answers will determine your next step in the process.

    Interview Questions
    • A lot of the questions were behavioral which I was not prepared for. I guess the little experience that I had totally out weigh the fact that I just graduated from school, therefore I didn't encountered a lot of the situations to apply how I dealt with it.   Answer Question
