Client Specialist Interview

Client Specialist
City of London, England (UK)

I applied in-person and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Thomson Reuters in August 2009.

Interview Details – They will interview at all times even when no positions available - always looking for 'talent' and prone to making mistakes by hiring 'ex-markets' people with no real ability to do the job.

Interview Question – None - all far too standard and vanilla.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Slow & drawn out - initial offer was a pittance.

Finance Graduate Scheme Interview

Finance Graduate Scheme
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Thomson Reuters in July 2013.

Interview Details – First stage was an online application - cover letter and CV. Prompt personal response via email asking me to take part in a telephone interview the next week.

Telephone interview - interview consisted of your knowledge of the company, what they do, who are their customers and challenges that they face. There are also questions giving you the chance to demonstrate your personality such as walk me through your CV and what are you extra curricular activities. Interview lasted about 30 minutes including a chance at the end to ask the interviewer questions about the role and company. Again there was a prompt response in notifying me that I was successful and through to the assessment centre which would happen a month later at their offices in Canary Wharf. A few weeks later we were emailed documents telling us about what the assessment centre would consist of and a presentation that I had to prepare in advance.

All day assessment centre which started off with an Ice breaker session in the morning
2:1 interview which lasted about 45-50 minutes - Interview was again competency based, mainly asking situation questions such as what did you do to improve when you had a communication failure and a lot of questions about teamwork and what part you play in a team, what you do in a situation when priorities change etc.
Next a presentation to a panel of 4 people - given 10 minutes to give present on a topic had been given 2 weeks prior. There was then a chance for the panel to ask further questions on what you had learnt about the company.
shl verbal and numerical reasoning tests - lasted about 20 minutes each. Break - next there was a chance to talk to people from the F&R division over lunch while also preparing for the group task in the afternoon.
Group activity- after lunch were split into groups of about 4. We had 1 hour to make a presentation which was about a new game we would bring to the market, we were given instructions and full briefing of this at the start of the day, To be discussed were issues such as name, how it would be marketed, start up costs etc. We then delivered the presentation and answered follow up questions from a panel of about 10 assessors who were present in the room for the entire activity.
The day was very well organised and enjoyable and all throughout the day there were plenty of people from the company around who were involved in the assessment day as assessors who you could chat to and find out more about TR and the role. Very prompt response again in receiving a call to be offered the job a few days later. In all it I had a positive experience throughout the recruitment process.

Interview Question – - What risks/challenges does TR face?
