    Technical Support Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ann Arbor, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Ann Arbor, MI).

    Interview

    Interview process was quick and relatively painless. Recruiter contacted me after I submitted my application and wanted me to come in for an interview the following week. Before my interview, I had to complete a 8-12 hour course and get certified. The course was free and went over customer service, diagnosing, technical support and managing day to day activities. I was able to complete in about 8 hours and afterwards a time was set up for my interview. The interview took about 3 hours and included a tour of the facilities, job shadowing, cognitive assessment, and finally a one-on-one interview.

    Digital Marketing Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN).

    Interview

    Applied online through Indeed, was contacted via phone call around mid-day by the department head explaining the position and inviting me in for an interview. Went in a few days later for the actual interview. Visitor parking was difficult to find, but not impossible. Interview lasted roughly 45 minutes and involved a lot of the typical interview questions at first, quickly moving into clarifications regarding your resume and other skill- and experience-based questions. Received a call from the person I interviewed with the next morning regarding something I said during the interview, offering clarification about a question I had posed and then asked me if I was okay with it. He called again an hour or two later with the offer.

    Interview

    Process took part in a couple rounds. First was the general application, a video interview, a questionnaire, and a final round in person group interview. They were all fairly straightforward although it took a while to hear back after each round.

    Interview Questions

    • Final round interview: We had to propose a pitch for a service, product, or solution for our clients, we had a one on one personal interview, a "show and tell" about yourself, and two team challenges.   Answer Question

    Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    Typical interview but be aware if you don't hear from them within a day or two, you didn't get the job. Apparently they do not believe in contacting people who are not receiving a job offer. This can make things a little confusing for anyone juggling multiple interviews/job offers. For me, I just wrote them off after two days because of the uncertainty and accepted a different job offer (of two others I received). Is a two line email updating a person who interviewed really too much to ask? I promise, we won't take it personally. Maybe it's some sort of weird liability fear, like if they don't turn you down, you can't claim discrimination? IN any event, I will not interview with them again.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    My interviewers described in detail the role and what they were looking for in a candidate. I was asked a series of questions about my experience and how I have handled scenarios in the past. The interviewers put me at ease and we had a great conversation. It took several months (and a number of follow up attempts on my part) to get a final answer.

    Marketing Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    TR uses the new pre-recorded video interview process for screening through Hirevue. The questions are recorded and played by video; your response is then recorded (1-take only). If successful, you'll be invited onsite for more interviews. Here's some insight on what to expect. I'd also add, lighting and setup is important - take advantage of the practice questions to get this right as well.

    Senior Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Seattle, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    This was an 100% impersonal process which I was not expecting for a senior role. TR never communicated with me via a person by phone or email. I received three automated emails throughout the process. The second email requested me to complete an online, one-way, video interview via HireVue; I completed the online interview and the site was buggy and kicked me out several times.

    Interview Questions

    • The pre-written interview questions were repetitive and predictable.   Answer Question
