    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eagan, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eagan, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Thomson Reuters in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    First interview was with two team members who were very laid back. Interview was very technical and the more you know, the more technical they seemed to get (I answered only when I could, let them know I was guessing at some). Generally a very comfortable interview that really focused on what I could do and what my interests were. Second interview was more focused on personality and whether or not I would be a good fit for the team. They seem very keen on finding people that can not only fill the position, but also mesh well.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too overwhelming. Two I remember are:

      How would you take a list of items and remove any duplicates.

      How would you check the string "RACECAR" to determine whether or not it is spelled the same forwards as backwards?

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Thomson Reuters in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Initially was contacted by a recruiter via LinkedIn asking if I was interested. We then set up a phone interview a few days later. About a week after that, I was asked to come in for a face to face interview at their offices with person who would be my direct supervisor in this role. The interview took about 45 minutes, and the manager stated they would be making a decision within a week regarding next steps. I was never contacted again, and did not even receive a generic rejection email.

    Interview Questions
    • All of the questions were pretty straightforward- walk me through your resume, tell me about a difficult problem you solved, how did you deal with a difficult co-worker, etc.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    On campus interview (30 min.) with easy experience based questions. This was followed by an on site interview (2.5 hrs) with multiple finance team members. Once again, very relaxed and easy experience based questions. Overall a great experience that one shouldn't stress out about too much.

    Attorney Editor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eagan, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eagan, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Thomson Reuters in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview. The recruiter asked some generic questions about my background--what experience I had with writing and for how long. The interviewer wouldn't engage personally--only stayed to script and fired questions about the jobs I've had. She seemed busy and hardly had any answers to my questions. I think I got an email from the recruiter about 2 months after they were supposed to have made a decision. I've spoken to other attorneys who have applied for positions with this company and learned this is not unusual. It seems many are frustrated with the application process (not to mention the very low wages) and have given up on pursuing further openings with this employer. It seems to be best suited for new attorneys who have no experience and low compensation.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. Interview just asked about what I did in my various positions, a few details about that, and my educational background. No behavioral questions.   Answer Question
