    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (Mc Lean, VA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    HR staff schedule a telephone call in the morning. I've prepared the whole day before that. But actually she just as one question which is do you need sponsorship or not. I explained a lot that I have employment authorization card, and I'm eligible to work using my STEM OPT in three years without sponsorship. But she still doesn't give any opportunities.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    The interview is best described as different than other agile coach interviews. It was a short panel interview with 3 other coaches. It started with introductions and questions about my background. Then, they asked me to pick a question from a set of cards and asked me to give as a live presentation on how scrum works. At the end we talked about how I teach and coach.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through the Freddie Mac career website. Received a call from HR to discuss usual, followed by a call with the hiring manager (would be my direct supervisor in group, not HR), then final in-person interview with a senior associate, same hiring manager, and director of the group. The interviews were a total of 2 hours (about 1 hour with the senior/hiring manager and another 45+ minutes with director) Each person explained how this position would be integral to the group and various customers. Everyone seemed knowledgeable about their strengths and areas of opportunities to improve.

      Also, be prepared to fluently describe your current roles/responsibilities and how it relates to the position. They will be asking many questions about your experiences so make sure you have strong examples to highlight what they are looking for.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The Interview process was very smooth and my recruiter was awesome. Use the questions on this site and you should be good for the Interview. I promised myself I would help others when I received my offer and some points to others that are still trying to receive their offer. Freddie Day is a wonderful experience so make sure to pay attention during the many presentations that are there to help you learn more about the company. Try not to be nervous since the hiring managers want to get to know you and about your past experiences, whether project or work based. Finally I will finish with ask questions since this is what every company I've interviewed with over the course of the school year have reiterated to me.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly Behaviorial questions with a mixture of technical. Make sure to practice your answers a few days prior to your interview and you will be fine.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was mostly behavioral questions with two technical questions.

    There's an on site interview if you pass the phone interview.

    I recommend staying calm and confident for the onsite interview. Be yourself. The hiring managers are more interested in having a conversation than an official interview.

    They also focused on talking about the relevant work/internship experience I had on my resume.
