    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters in June 2014.

    Interview

    I did this process through my school, and it was a very conversational style interview. It was with two people and the questions were typical behavioral questions, questions on my resume, telling me about the position, etc.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    Applied for an analyst position and received an email from HR a month later to set up a phone interview with two analysts. The first interview was mostly behavioral (why Reuters, why this job, tell me about yourself, etc). Was invited to come in for a second round interview with an analyst and VP the following week. The next interview was a mix of behavioral and a case study (mostly industry/company analysis, little math). Both interviews seemed to go well, however, HR never bothered to email back with any feedback or updates which seemed unprofessional. Even after following up, there was no communication and only found out they were still recruiting for the position when it was reposted on a job site.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Boston, MA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    3 total interviews; 1 on the phone, 2 in person. None of them were very difficult - the last one was more of a formality than an interview. Culture fit is a really important in this company, so make sure that you are comfortable with the culture before joining. You must be a go-getter and independent because no one will hold your hand here.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN).

    Interview

    Had a phone interview which consisted of questions about why the interest in the position, and a brief overview of your experience. Then roughly a week later I went in for a 3 round interview. The first interview was completely technical to make sure you have the technical aptitude and experience for the position. The other two are behavioral interviews, with little to no technical questions.The whole process only took two weeks and was very efficient.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given an impromptu quiz on Microsoft Excel, I also was asked some questions about process improvement experiences and what inputs/outputs were used.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (New York, NY) in November 2011.

    Interview

    As an ex-Thomson employee, I was referred to this position by a former colleague. After almost a week of playing phone tag with the HR person (who was in San Francisco), we finally scheduled a phone interview with the hiring manager in Boston. I am in NY. The interview lasted about 1/2 hour and went pretty well since I knew some of the same people she did. About two weeks later, I received a typical automated form email thanking me for my interest but letting me know that they would not be pursuing me as a candidate. Even though they listed NY as a viable location for this role, I believe they really wanted somebody in Boston.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical stuff. What were you doing when you were with Thomson? Why did you leave? What exactly were you doing at your last employer? Why did you leave?   Answer Question
