    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was very smooth and straightforward. Got a phone call about two days after applying. Had the phone interview which was like 5 behavioral questions, super easy if you know your resume and yourself. Then got a call back three weeks later to come in for Freddie day. The reception, which was the day before, and the day itself were really great and welcoming, full of great people who are passionate about their jobs. The interview was super easy i was with two different managers. If you did well in the phone interview you should be good at Freddie day.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I spoke with the hiring manager over the phone for the initial screening. The focus was on my experience and interest to work on problems facing the division. I was invited for an onsite interview to meet the full team and present a recent data science project I'd worked on. It was a full day of interviews with different managers. Each meeting lasted one hour. There was a technical interview which consisted mainly of oral questions testing knowledge of data science methods, econometric techniques, and approaches to data analysis. You should know the technical details of different models and be able to discuss them fluently. I was also asked some statistical/econometric proofs.

    Underwriting Analyst, Underwriting Document Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    No Offer
    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!
