    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Freddie Mac in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Freddie Mac in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    It was a total of six 1-on-1 interviews about fixed income and mortgage knowledge. Interviews included personal questions, technical questions, and IQ questions. All interviews took place in different two days within one week. Interviewers had different emphasis on the type of questions. But it's always good to be well prepared.

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Freddie Mac in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Attended Freddie Day after an on-campus interview (~30 min). On Freddie Day had about 3 interviews that lasted approx 30 min each. There seemed to be a lot of uncertainty regarding the nature of the program I was applying for, and one of the interviewers had only been with the company for a week. Interviews consisted of typical questions about group work habits, research experiences listed on resume, etc. There were also questions related to my major (how do you check for normality of model errors?) and other questions like "What do you think of the financial crisis? Whose fault was it?"

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Freddie Mac in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is not very intense. It begins with a phone screen. Most of the questions are behavioral in nature. A few times I was asked technical questions that were testing my knowledge of how changes in asset values are reflected on the balance sheet and income statements.
