    Questions on previous job experience. Not much looking for job-specific skills but an attitude willing to learn about Freddie's business model and operations. The recruiter was open about some of the challenges faced by the company, and explained that the company seeks candidates who understand the regulatory environment under which they operate and are willing to take the challenge.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Freddie Mac in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter was very personable - the conversation flowed quite nicely and we even chatted about some outside stuff. Wasn't too difficult. She essentially asked me why I chose the classes and activities that I chose, followed by four or five behavioral questions. Those weren't anything out of the ordinary. Just your typical "tell me about a time in which you..."

    Financial Rotation Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    On campus interview followed by interviews at Freddie. I had 3 interviews at Freddie which had mostly typical behavioral questions. One of the interviewers was technical and questions were tougher. Make sure you know what the actual rotations are in financial rotation programs, whether at Freddie or another company. Usually not a lot of finance the way you learn about it in college. It’s more so accounting and financial analytics (volume increased in this x type of asset because there was more demand from z type of investors). Excel, VBA, SQL and/SAS skills are extremely useful. Best way to add value as an analyst.
