    straight forward. Be personable. If you're entry level they don't expect you to know anything in detail about the business of freddie mac but that does not mean go in without any knowledge. Do your research.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (Arlington, VA).

    Interview

    Following my online job application, I received an email inviting me to a virtual zoom interview with the hiring manager. I completed the interview without any problems. The hiring manager informed me that I would receive a follow up message for additional interviews with the team members, but that never materialized. I followed up with the HR recruiter two times, inquiring on my status, but my emails were ignored. I received no response nor a status.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in August 2020.

    Interview

    One of the interviewers, a middle-aged white male, offered me unsolicited advice about my resume and career at the end of the interview. I had the same amount of experience he did and I'm betting he wouldn't have done this if I were male.

    Internal Audit Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Freddie Mac.

    Interview

    Went through 2 rounds of interview. Good insightful conversation- no issues with that. I hear nothing for 2 weeks and then the position was cancelled. I think it is very disappointing and disrespectful that I was not told that in an email or a call seeing as they called me to interview for the position to begin with.

    I don’t expect to get every position that I interview for, but would have appreciated some courtesy in letting me know that in fact they were going to cancel the position.
