Inside Sales Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Thomson Reuters in May 2014.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time where you were creative in order to make your quota. What do you like most/least about sales? Answer Question
Business Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Thomson Reuters.
Interview Details – 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.
Financial Analyst Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Thomson Reuters in June 2013.
Interview Details – Very professional interview process,and very well-spoken history of success in their industry, The whole interview process involved not only my direct-report manager, but also the segments we would be supporting, as well as 2 in senior management.
Interview Question – When did you turn around a process that was previously a challenge to the company? What steps and thought processes did you take to make that happen? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Very cut-to-the chase - didn't negotiate back & forth. Salary was a take-it-or leave it offer.
