    Underwriting Analyst, Underwriting Document Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    2 -3 parts, initial recruiter review, phone interview and in-person interview. General easy questions but all along they planned on hiring internally but brought me in for round 3. Interview went great but they emailed me that they were hiring internally. Be careful applying to companies like Freddie because they will be fake and happy in front of you but when you leave they already know the plan. Don't expect honestly, I was dragged to 3 interviews and all along they knew they weren't going to hire me even if the hiring manager "requested" for me to come in and I didn't even apply. I felt like a toy!
