    Proposal Writer/Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Total: 2+ months. Initial phone screen/interview with HR representative. Several days later, I was asked to come in the following week to meet with 2 hiring managers. I was surprised by how few situation-based questions were asked! The majority of our conversation was ad-hoc. We discussed several points in my resume but also took turns sharing proposal experiences/processes. I was contacted several days later by the hiring manager for writing samples and references. I was asked back for a second round of interviews a few days later. I met with a group of people broken into three interviews with two TR members each. Everyone I met with was kind and enthusiastic. They asked excellent questions and were eager to answer my own as well. Shortly after, I was contacted again to take a writing/RFP analysis test.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews, with maybe a week in between. Recruiters were really nice and patient. The questions were mostly personality type ones, with only a few of technical nature. The personality type questions were pretty common ones: describe a project where you had to deal with a person you disliked; did you have any recent big presentation and how did it go; describe a project where you had to use your analytical skills; how did you deal with stress in a project that didn't go very well...

    You will likely be asked questions about your teamwork skills, your interpersonal relations, your management style or your ability to work in a diverse environment. Review the job posting again and try to anticipate other likely areas of questioning, and prepare honest and concise answers that highlight relevant aspects of your work history and life experience. Remember that there may be questions you did not anticipate: when this happens, breathe and take a moment to think through your experiences to find the best answers.

    Interview

    I applied to the job during Christmas holidays so i didn't hear back 2 weeks later. Had a phone interview where i was asked my basic knowledge and skill set. Scheduled a in person interview a week later. Super laid back and chill, the hiring manager literally only asked to clarify some things on my resume. And spent the rest of the interview just describing the company and job. Got the offer 3 days later.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    The interview process was friendly and informative. There was an exchange of a lot of questions. I was as prepared and did quite a bit of research on the company and position so that made the process less stressful. It was a bit difficult to get an idea of the time frame for hiring for the position. It seemed like there were some loose ends on their part.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Detroit, MI) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through the company career site and was contacted for a phone interview. The interview took approximately 30 minutes and was conducted by a recruiter over the phone. I also had an employee referral so that helped. I found out about the opportunity a few weeks after it was posted so I was a bit too late because it sounded like they had already made a decision on another candidate. The recruiter was very good and said they definitely wanted me to apply again for similar positions and hoped to place me soon. The questions were thorough and focused on my background as well as what they were looking for specifically for the current posting.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about my background and then asked to explain a challenge I overcame in my previous position. Talked about what the next steps if I were to proceed with the process would be. Pretty standard interview-type questions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Thomson Reuters (New York, NY) in January 2015.

    Interview

    A large number of phones calls to people in different locations. At the end I was brought onsite to their NYC office. Met with a number of people, got to see what they are working on, asked questions and that was it. It was extremely disorganized process from top to bottom. In the end they claimed that I did not have certain technical experience that they were looking for. It was made very clear what skills I did and did not have as I have worked in very specific environments in my career. I found it quite odd that at the end of the interview process their claim to not continue was that I was missing certain skills that were explicitly spelled out from the beginning. A complete waste of time for so many people involved.
