    Interview

    Initial interview was by phone with hiring team lead and one technical person, questions asked were to determine technical competency. Second interview was on-site and meeting with the entire team. Most questions at second interview were situational in nature (e.g. experience in handling difficult situations). Second interview also included hiring manager. i was notified of the offer about two weeks after the second interview (other candidates were being interviewed)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (London, England (UK)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview, by phone, seemed put together hurriedly. There were no introductions nor description of the job - just straight into a set of technical questions. The interviewers seemed brusque to the point of rudeness and although I was told that I would receive feedback (either yes or no) by the end of the week, none came. When I asked for some, I received no initial response and when I followed this up, was slagged off to the recruitment partner in a manner which misrepresented what had happened. I'm glad I didnt get the role

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Delhi (India)) in January 2010.

    Interview

    2 rounds of interview. The technical round had questions that should be asked of a fresher. No proper recruitment team. HR is not someone with patience. Was after my life for the documents even after explaining the delay. Joined becuse had to change and this was the only decent offer in hand. The manager turned out to be good though fortunately. Had no chance of visiting their office to get a feel of the environment. Negativity towards HR increased more after joining :)
