I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Ann Arbor, MI).
Easy 15 min phone interview, then went through a longer phone interview a couple weeks later asking more technical (simple computer programming) questions, followed by a tour of the office and 2 1:1 interviews in-office. Received a winter term offer but didn't want to take a whole semester off of school.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days – interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Ann Arbor, MI) in June 2015.
The interviewer went over the process with me thoroughly and went over two behavioral questions. Sadly, it felt like two at most questions was a bad sign in an interview so I lost hope. Did not like how they did not provide a follow up email indicating I did not move forward in the process.
- Can you describe a time where you had to deal with a displeased customer and how did you deal with him/her? Answer Question

I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks – interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Ann Arbor, MI).
The interview process was very similar to most large organizations. I received a call from a recruiter, who asked why I was interested in the position. What my work history consisted of, along with my education level. I then went in for a face to face interview, waited about 10 days and was called back for a second interview with the VP. I was offered the position at the second meeting and accepted. As a whole, I thought the process was conducted very well, and I felt I was treated very fairly.
- The most difficult question they asked was, why had I never stayed with a company for more than 5 years? After I explained the reasons behind my moves, they were satisfied with the explanation. Although, it did come up again at my final meeting. Answer Question
There was no negotiation phase, I was informed that there is a range that they're able to offer. I naturally pushed for the top end of the range, and I was given the highest pay within their structure.

Three interviews. First was a telephone interview with a recruiter. Second was a meeting with the customer service director and one of the lead Reps. Third interview was with the Vice President of the division and the woman I would be working with. They chose to go with someone else.

- Declined OfferEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Ann Arbor, MI) in December 2012.
I filled out an application online and received a call for a phone interview a week later. Did a phone interview and went to the Ann Arbor office for an on site interview. The interview was basic questions. For example tell me how you would trouble shoot a printer problem, give me an example of a time you fixed something technology related, give me an example of a time you went above and beyond for a client. Process was pretty easy. At the Ann Arbor office you get to sit with a current employee and listen to their calls for an hour so you get a feel for the job.
- Give me a time when someone wasn't happy with the answer you gave them and what you did to handle the situation. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
I thought it was going to be more business and technology oriented, but it turns out to be more about answering the phones all day answering questions. I did not want to sit in a cube all day and answer phones so I declined the offer.
