I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN).
I had a phone interview with the Marketing Manager, with a bunch of behavioral questions. She also asked about my experience with excel, numbers and analysis programs. I was asked within an hour after the phone interview to come in the following day at the Eagan Campus. The Marketing manager greeted me the following day and lead me to the Senior Director of Strategy. He interviewed me for 45 mins and then gave me 2 case studies. After him, I was taken to a Senior Marketing Analyst for a next interview. (Also 45 mins). I ended the day with a 3rd interview with teh Marketing Manager,
I found out I got the job 4 days after. (They said they were interviewing a few other candidates over the next couple of days) I didn't get the paper offer until 2 weeks later.

I applied online. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in February 2015.
Total: 2+ months. Initial phone screen/interview with HR representative. Several days later, I was asked to come in the following week to meet with 2 hiring managers. I was surprised by how few situation-based questions were asked! The majority of our conversation was ad-hoc. We discussed several points in my resume but also took turns sharing proposal experiences/processes. I was contacted several days later by the hiring manager for writing samples and references. I was asked back for a second round of interviews a few days later. I met with a group of people broken into three interviews with two TR members each. Everyone I met with was kind and enthusiastic. They asked excellent questions and were eager to answer my own as well. Shortly after, I was contacted again to take a writing/RFP analysis test.

I applied in-person. The process took a week – interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in November 2014.
One-on-one process with Finance Mgr, as well as 2nd round with Director in the office. Questions centered around experience, what you've done in your last couple of roles, as well as where you see yourself in 5 years. A lot of Q&A.
In the end, the managers had internal candidates in mind, so I felt like the interview was more or less a formal nicety than a real opportunity for advancement.

I applied through other source – interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in October 2014.

- Typical questions related to explain prior jobs, successes on those jobs as well as challenges. Ask situational based questions and solutions regarding prior job related experience. Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN).
Hiring is first screened by HR so it is helpful to include specific information about how you would be a good candidate for the job you are applying for in your cover letter, along with listing all relevant work experience on your resume, to be sure it is then forwarded on to the hiring manager. Typically a phone interview is first. Be engaging, and upbeat. Next is the in person interview. Support teams are looking for a team player, someone who isn't afraid to help out/is available to help. Often it comes down to relevant experience and how you handled yourself during the interview.
- Usually a specific scripting question or a linux question to try and gage your knowledge of the application or architecture. Answer Question

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN).
Went through two rounds of interviews. First round was on my college campus. Questions covered basic Computer Science knowledge and then a small code challenge. After several weeks I received an invitation to visit the Eagan, MN campus for a tour and a second interview. The second round of interview were conducted by Senior / Lead Software Engineers from the campus. The questions were more about my technical background and the coursework I had studied in college. Overall not extremely challenging if you payed attention during your coursework.
- What is your preferred / favorite programming language and why? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in May 2014.
I found the listing on glassdoor and applied through the Thomson Reuters website on a Tuesday morning. I received an email within about an hour requesting a pre-screen phone interview, which we set up for the next day. The phone interview consisted of very typical questions and a summary of the role with one of their Talent Acquisition Specialists. At the end of the phone interview, we scheduled an in-person interview for Friday afternoon. The interview lasted about an hour. It was a behavioral interview with two of the sales managers. Pretty standard questions. Monday morning I received a call that they wanted to set up a second Role Play interview. We set up the interview for Wednesday afternoon and I was given some information about the products and scenarios to study. After the role play, where I carried out a sales call with of the hiring managers, they had me assess myself and we went over any final questions. I received a call the next morning just before 8am letting me know they wanted to make an offer. The process was very quick and easy, although I spent a lot of time preparing for the interview and role play, so it might be more difficult if not properly prepared.
