    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Freddie Mac (McLean, VA).


    1 interview with HR, 1 with a manager, and then they schedule you for 2 interviews on Freddie Day. This year Freddie Day was cancelled due to the snow, so all the candidates had to do phone interviews instead. The hiring team kept us all waiting for weeks and weeks with little to no communication. To me, it was very disorganized and unprofessional. I took an offer elsewhere and pulled out of the candidate pool.
