I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Freddie Mac in April 2010.

Interview Details – Being an ex-GSE (from Fannie or Ginnie Mae) significantly improves chances for being hired. But certainly prior mortgage expirience is required. The interview process is usually a phone interview followed by a face-to-face interview. Often number of interviewers are no greater than 3 people. They look for personality and cultural match more than just the skills in resume

Financial Analyst Interview

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Freddie Mac.

Interview Details – After applying through my school's career website I got an on campus interview. This was pretty simple just looking for fit (why Freddie? what do you know about Freddie Mac? etc. ). 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. HR got back to us within a week so overall it was a quick process.

Negotiation Details – Little to no negotiation. Salary was fair and benefits were better than most companies.
