Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters in May 2017.

Interview

All interviews were conducted over the phone since this was for a remote position. Started with a screening interview with a company recruiter. Then a second interview with the managing editor who created the position and another senior associate editor. I was given a writing assignment - find a recent case and draft a legal update. One final interview that consisted of 3 parts with various attorney editors.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (New York, NY) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Interviews with several members of the group. They expect high level of familiarity with what the company is all about so highly suggest reviewing the website if possible beforehand and reading about company philosophy to legal business. Once through that, it was followed by writing test and the final step was a background check. The writing test involves being given about a week to submit a short version of one of their resources on a topic they provide.

    • Are you ready to leave practicing law? How would you describe what Practical Law does?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of two parts: a one hour group interview and one hour written evaluation. Typically this is done in stages but because I came from a distance, they allowed me to perform both parts of the interview while there. The interview was pretty standard, a lot of "tell me about a time when . . ." and a couple of multi-part questions.
    During the written evaluation, candidates read a case and write summaries of the holdings on a computer.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time that you received unfair criticism. How did you respond/what did you do?   Answer Question
    • What is one thing that you are proud of?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview. The recruiter asked some generic questions about my background--what experience I had with writing and for how long. The interviewer wouldn't engage personally--only stayed to script and fired questions about the jobs I've had. She seemed busy and hardly had any answers to my questions. I think I got an email from the recruiter about 2 months after they were supposed to have made a decision. I've spoken to other attorneys who have applied for positions with this company and learned this is not unusual. It seems many are frustrated with the application process (not to mention the very low wages) and have given up on pursuing further openings with this employer. It seems to be best suited for new attorneys who have no experience and low compensation.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions. Interview just asked about what I did in my various positions, a few details about that, and my educational background. No behavioral questions.   Answer Question
