    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    It was a phone interview. It was supposed to be from the Technical Manager but apparently he was busy and some one from the team called. They did not even introduce themselves properly and started asking questions right away. Started asking about why I applied this job/my strengths. Felt like a company who does not value or take time to interview right people. Jumped into technical questions and was rushing to complete the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview Details

    I found the opportunity through my college job database and applied through there. The interview process was only one stage and was done through Skype since I was interviewing for an office in Asia. It was with a junior producer and the senior producer who is an alum at my school. The questions were mostly behavioral with some random questions such as "What are the names of the HK and Japanese stock exchange?" It helped to go through the previous few days' news as they also asked about what you thought were several big recent news stories.

    Negotiation Details
    There was nothing to negotiate regarding pay as my school was the one compensating me for my time. They were pretty flexible in regards to start and end dates for the internship.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received phone call for interview. Had initial interview with HR representative with basic "why do you want to work here/tell me about yourself" questions. Next, there's a mock sales call with a current sales rep to test phone/selling skills. Following this, was offered an on-site interview which is a 4 hour process to meet with various sales managers and get an understanding of the job. Sales manager questions were fairly straight-forward, "explain a situation in which you had to work with others on a difficult task/explain how you were a leader when faced with adversity, etc." Received a call the following day with an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Don't remember the most difficult question. Not a terribly difficult interview process, but not a cakewalk either. Understand SPIN selling technique and be able to apply it to prior sales situations.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not able to negotiate. All reps start with same salary/benefits.
