    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters in April 2018.

    Interview

    I had 2 rounds of interviews. The first was online where the software gives you 10 questions and you have about 30 seconds to prepare and a couple of minutes (give or take) to answer to a one time recording - so there's no person you're talking to. It's like an awkward video voicemail.

    You get more than enough time, and they are very generic questions that you should expect in every interview. It felt more like a screener to filter out very obvious red flags. That being said, I had never done such an interview, and the software provides 3 sample questions to practice - use it as much as you can, it makes a huge difference.

    The second part was a panel interview - I was interviewed with 2 other candidates by one interviewer in the room and 2 others on a live stream. We would all be asked the same question and take turns answering it. The order rotated each question.

    Most of the questions that I was asked seemed like the industry standard to both the position and large companies, so Googling in advance what might be asked was not only easy but extremely helpful for me.

    Implementation Consultant Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Dallas, TX) in April 2018.

    Interview

    It was a elaborate process which provided clear understanding about the role. It was done in various stages to evaluate the overall strength of the applicant. I felt a lot of time was given to understand the strength and expectation from the applicant as well as evaluate the applicant on both technical and behavioral aspects.

    Global Head of Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    I had a scheduled time to meet with the recruiter over the phone who ended up confusing the time zones. Okay, everyone makes mistakes. She offered to reschedule the same day, then left early, set a time for the following week. The screening interview went well and I was told another interview with the hiring manager would be set up for the following week. But I never heard anything back. Followed up several times via e-mails and phone calls, nothing. I contacted a Managing Director who put pressure on the recruiter to follow back up with me. Finally, I received an e-mail, text message and phone call within the same hour. As it turned out they passed on my candidacy because my application was too late in the process (shocker). Apparently TR also has a new target of 40% female representation by 2020 - according to the recruiters LinkedIn post. So even though my qualifications were a great match, my gender was not officially in-line with the CEO's 40% female target by 2020. Not saying I didn't get the job because I was male, perhaps there were other qualified candidates. But it sure leads one to believe that both internal and external candidates will be less likely to get the job if they checked the application box "male." There shouldn't be gender percentages or timeline rules for any qualified candidate, no matter what race, gender or sexual orientation. But if you feel it necessary, then please add the updated "gender/race/sexual oreintation statistics" to the job requisition so prospective candidates can figure out their probability of hire.

    Had a phone interview after the initial application and then never heard back after that. Even after following up, I never heard a decision on the interview which was not a good experience.

    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Spoke on the phone for about 20-30 minutes. The interviewer asked me irrelevant questions, such as: can you tell anything about Thomson Reuter's revenue? He also started the interview off by saying they do not pay for interns to come to the office, and all expenses are on the interviewee even though apparently they have billions in revenue. Interviewer was also quite rude and sounded a bit pretentious, going on and on about how they only hire the best. Company culture was clearly not a fit.

    Interview

    After applying I was contacted to do a HireVue video interview screening. I did the interview and received an email saying not to respond to it because it went to an unchecked mailbox and someone would contact me. Nobody has contacted me either way. Very frustrating to be left hanging.
