    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    Brief phone interview relaying the job requirements. Then I had an interview with 2 hiring managers, one of whom took notes and the other asked scripted questions. I then observed a reference attorney take a client phone call and interact with the client. Then, I was interviewed by 2 different managers, again one taking notes, asking me about my observations of the reference attorney call. I was then given an "administrative" introduction to the way that timekeeping works and PTO requests. The total interview took approximately 2 hours.

    Interview

    The interview was very friendly and laid back. I first had a phone interview and then an onsite. Toured the facility, met the team, and had three sets of interviews. The interview lasted about 3-4 hours total. They took around 3-4 weeks to reply and had plenty of time to decide.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    First interview was by phone and it was a nice candid conversation. The second was meeting the same person who interviewed me about 3 weeks prior and the lead for the team in their office in Times Square. Lovely office space and seemed like a great place to work. Unfortunately the software they posted I would be utilizing they no longer had the licensing for so that dropped me right out of the running when they changed the program.
