Technical Analyst Interview

Technical Analyst
McLean, VA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – Name the most difficult coding project you have worked on and list some lines of code from the assignment.   Answer Question

Change Management Interview

Change Management
Reston, VA

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed 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 Question – 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

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
McLean, VA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Freddie Mac in April 2010.

Interview Details – I was flown in along with many other students from other colleges around the nation. They gave us an overview of the company and a tour of the buildings. Afterward, we had 2 interviews, each with a new hire and an experiences employee. One of the interviews, the experienced employee asked most of the questions, and during the second interview, the new hire asked most of the questions. The new hires were supposed to be there in order for us to ask them questions about their experiences and what it is like being a new hire, but he was asking most of the questions and didn't seem prepared.
