Application Details

The process took a day - interviewed at Freddie Mac in September 2011.

Interview Details

I had a 30 minute one on one interview that consisted mainly of me describing my previous work and education experience. There were no technical questions, but I was asked some questions about how Freddie Mac works and what they do. I thought the interview went very well especially since I previously completed an externship with Freddie Mac. I sent a thank you not to my interviewer, and have heard absolutely nothing since. No emails to tell me that I was not selected no phone calls, zero contact.

    Regular phone interview. They asked me some behavioral questions, as well as technical questions. I was applying for an IT position, so they asked questions about programming in general. If you could not answer the questions, then the job is not probably for you.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Freddie Mac in May 2009.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview with HR, where all questions were behavioral or based on resume. Second round interview was a 2:1 conference call, also with just behavioral and resume based questions. After passing second round, you get placed in a department and they present you with an official offer. You must then take a drug test and complete a background check.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations, compensation and job placement was chosen by the company. Pay is great for a summer internship, especially for the level of work.

    The process took 5 days - interviewed at Freddie Mac in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview proces begins with a phone screening from a recruiter in human resources and then after asking basic questions of "Why Freddie Mac" and a brief background check, you are evaluated by the department you applied for on another interview.
    As an intern candidate, I then received a second phone interview from the group I was supposed to be working with during the summer and they ran through a 25-minute behavioral interview with me leaving 5 minutes for questions.
    After the completion of a phone interview, an offer was extended 5 business days later.

    Interview Details

    I met a recruiter at a networking event and we chatted. The next day they called to offer an interview on campus that day. The interview was about half an hour and consisted of many "what would you do if..." questions and give me an instance when you... questions. I did not receive an offer because I was still a freshman but they told me that was the only thing wrong with me. They encouraged me to try again next year.
