Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Freddie Mac.

It was a fairly simple process. I applied and was contacted by a recruiter. They had me come in and I met with the team I was going to be working with. They all interviewed me separately and had their own set of questions they asked.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I advise you go to any of the events open to the public- it helped me land this year round internship. I had a brief phone interview with a manager, then got called in for the in-person. A few rounds, meeting with managers, supervisors, directors, and the VP of my department. Overall, it was a pleasant experience, no pressure, all straight forward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    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. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    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

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

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in April 2009.

    Interview

    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.
