    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Horrible interviewing process! I was there for over three hours and met with five different individuals separately. Two were late to their assigned time and everyone asked the same general shoot-from-the-hip questions. I felt like they could have made the whole process easier by having one or two group interviews. I left feeling like each of them thought they had such important schedules they couldn't work together.

I was then asked to come to Freddie Day that next week. Campus tour, talking with analysts, 2 interviews, etc. Interviews were mainly about fit as well just behavioral questions and making sure you did your homework.
