Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

Interview

First there is a phone interview that asks basic questions like why do you want to work here. Then if you pass that move onto the in person interview.Thomson Reuters uses the STAR interview method. Situation,task, Action, Result which I did ok with until the last question that was totally out of left field and I bombed it. Now I can't remember what the question was. The company moves really fast, I applied and interviewed within a week

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Dexter, MI (US)) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Unless recruited by the intern manager from the schools she visits, it's tough to get on her radar. However, if you do, be persistent and make sure she knows you're willing and available. Once you get the interview, understand that, by nature, she is very casual and friendly, but don't let that trick you-be certain to maintain a professional demeanor (i did not). You will review a shift with a former intern for a good hour or so, then interview with the intern manager for about another hour. The interview will cover a range of questions, including behavioral and situation questions as well as a few career-oriented one. Be sure to come with a notepad, and be prepared to ask intelligent, relevant questions when prompted.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters in January 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me. Introductory Q's. Spoke with Hiring Mgr. Seemed like a great opportunity. Low turnover, nice product. In both conversation I got agreement on 1) next steps, and 2) that I would be an amazing addition to the team...then silence. I've kept on top of these people and either get no response or that they're no longer interested. Cowardly, no transparency, no courtesy, and no professionalism. If this is how they treat their candidates, how must they treat employees?!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Lansing, MI (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    In person interview first, then on the phone interview. Had a better experience with the in person interview. The phone interview was very scrambled and confusing and she didn't contact me for weeks even though she gave me a date I would hear from her by.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    Applied online. Recruiter reached out to set up phone interview with Manager. Basic questions about resume and experience. Why you wanted role and why you would be a fit. After call was told would follow up about possibly moving forward, but no communication since conversation 2 months ago. At least have the courtesy to let applicants know when they aren't selected instead of just radio silence.

    Informal, over coffee. The whole process took 3 weeks. Submission was sent directly to the hiring manager, no HR personnel involved in the process. Questions asked ranged from competency questions like client meeting scenarios and financial technical questions like understanding financial instruments and hedging tools.
