    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Freddie Mac in October 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through school. The first interview was primarily to just walk them through my resume via a phone call. The second interview was also over the phone. It was primarily behavioral. If they like me, I will be invited to Freddie Mac day at their campus in Virginia. I'm assuming this will be the technical aspect of the job interview.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I spoke with two people for 30 minutes each. The first person spoke extremely fast - to the point of almost being unintelligible - but asked good and relevant questions and was able to communicate their needs for the position. The second person was disengaged and asked very odd questions that made it seem as if they didn't really understand the role of an analyst.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen with talent acquisition recruiter on a Friday. On Monday, HR called to let me know they would like me to come in and interview with members of the team. We corresponded over email to schedule the interview, which was for that Friday. I received detailed instructions on where to go and with whom I would be meeting. I met with 4 people on the time within 3 separate 30-minute interviews. HR kept in touch with me weekly to ensure I was still available as I waited for a decision to be made. I got the official offer after about a month.
