    Contract Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Eagan, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in September 2010.

    Interview

    A co-worker at my previous company referred me because she knew the hiring manager (and received a message from the hiring manager saying she was looking for available recruiters). My resume was forwarded to the hiring manager by my co-worker and about a week later I was called by the hiring manager. We spoke about my background and such (a phone screen/interview) and then she asked me to come in for an in person interview on-site. It was a half hour with the entire team: the hiring manager, another recruiter, and a recruiting coordinator. When I got on-site, I was amazed at how large the campus is...it is a huge building. I had to check in with security and the hiring manager came down to greet me. She showed me around a little - in route to the Starbucks on the fourth floor. The four of us just chatted in a corner of the Starbucks inside Thomson Reuters. I thought it was great. The place was packed, with other people having meetings or collaborating. They told me this meeting was mostly for me so I could learn about them. They did ask a few questions about whether I used Taleo, areas I recruited for, and how I like to work. I asked them several questions about their recruiting process (in terms of me working there) and why they came & stay at Thomson. I was told they had interviewed others and had one more to go the next day before a decision would be made. It was pleasant and afterwards I was brought back to the front desk to check out.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    During the phone interview I was asked what my range was as a contractor...I told her I was a Senior Recruiter and what I was looking for but I was negotiable. The day after the in-person interview I was offered the position. She said this is a non-senior position (I wouldn't have that title), and she told me what the range was they were working with (their upper end was my lower end). They offered me the lowest I was looking for (which was the most they were looking to pay). I am glad our ranges matched up.
