I interviewed at Thomson Reuters in August 2013.
Interview Details –
Interviewed for the business/technology internship, which actually means answering the phones all day (much like Comcast customer service) getting harassed and yelled at by rude, obnoxious, and disrespectful customers.
Filled out an application. Received a call a week later (I was interviewing for the Jan session). Mostly questions describing what you would do to fix some computer issues. Just remember the job is stressful and most people that call in are already unhappy and extremely pressed for time. So you need to demonstrate to the interviewers that you can find answers to difficult questions while getting yelled at on the phone and also remain calm.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Thomson Reuters in February 2011.
Interview Details –
Contacted via email by corporate recruiter - after agreeing to a 15 minute phone interview the following Monday. The initial phone interview lasted probably not much longer than 5 minutes tops - all questions were straight to the point technical questions about SQL and database building. It was a very short and intense interview and I was expecting to politely turned down and be done with it - to my surprise, I was asked my desired starting salary, told to study up on some finer points and was invited to a face to face interview at the local office during the next week.
At the office, I was given three one hour interviews, one after another after another. The interviewers were all very friendly and the questions weren't difficult, but more personal in nature, why are you interested in the position?, how do you deal with conflict?, etc - absolutely no technical questions as from the phone interview. It was a long process, not terribly difficult, encountering only one question that I struggled with --- I am confident that if I hadn't been exhausted from fighting off a cold, it would be fine.
Notes were taken by each of my interviewers, and I was told that all three interviewers would later hold a conference with my initial corporate recruiter contact and my candidacy would be discussed -- i.e. if I would be a proper fit with company culture, etc. Unfortunately, I was emailed a week later and told I was not hired.
