Inside Sales Representative Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Dallas, TX) in May 2015.
Contacted by a recruiter, two phone interviews, then face to face, notice of intent of offer after face to face, however took over a month to get offer approved. Started after several weeks. Study company products, history and organizational information. Helpful to understand the company and its many products.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I 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.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Phila, PA) in February 2013.
Very easy and they were nice. They were slow in getting me a response on whether or not I was offered the position, despite me explaining my timeline where I needed to know because I had another offer on the table and the pressure was on to provide an answer. They finally gave me an offer, but by then I had taken the other job.

The process took a week. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters in April 2010.
After a brief phone interview, I was offered to do a face to face interview at their offices. It was a series of three hour long interviews with three different managers. There was a lot of questions based on situational reactions. Nothing too difficult to answer but it was a grueling 3 hours going over my resume three different times and asking the same questions three different times.
