    Compliance Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Carrollton, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Carrollton, TX) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online after seeing the post on a state-supported job website. Within about two weeks, a recruiter reached out to me and conducted a 30 minute interview. Thereafter, I completed a phone interview with the hiring manager. About a week later, I was asked for my availability for an in-person interview which I then confirmed for a date and time occurring roughly 10 business days later.

    At the in-person interview, the hiring manager gave me a more-detailed overview of the company, the job's responsibilities, and what she envisioned in the ideal employee. After a roughly an hour, I did a separate interview via Microsoft Teams with a remote associate who reports to the hiring manager. At the conclusion of the last interview, the hiring manager let me know I'd be speaking with the department head next and, thereafter, a decision would be made. I was also told there was one other candidate being considered in addition to myself and that the call w/ the department head would occur within the next few days.

    The call with the department head occurred within three days of my in-person interview and lasted about 30 minutes. I surmised the call went well as I received a call from the recruiter stating they were offering me the job!

    User Experience Design Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    I applied online after which I got an email where I had to record answers to about 5 questions. After that, an HR rep contacted me to set up a final interview. During the final interview, I found my interviewer to be pretty rude. He would cut me off while I was talking and didn't seem to pay attention to what I was saying. He also just seemed bored during the process. So overall I did not have a good experience. The HR reps were nice though. But I did think it was rude to send a generic automated rejection email to candidates who got to the final round of interviews.

    Marketing Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Spoke with HR for a screening, and was asked to speak with the hiring manager. A member of my immediate family passed away and I asked if I could postpone the interview for a week and a half. They said yes. I came back to them with my availability a week later, as I was busy with funeral arrangements. HR didn’t respond. I wrote again and they informed me the role was filled. There were three different HR people involved in the process which was also confusing.

    Job well done team.

    Very quick and detailed. The hiring manager was very responsive and communicative. There was a phone interview and two in person interviews. I've interviewed for a former role and did not get the offer, but with this hiring manager the process was really quick.

    Software Engineer(Internship) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eagan, MN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online, HR contacted me to schedule an initial phone call a few days later. The night before the call the recruiter sent a questionnaire to fill out regarding my experience/projects. I did not have time to complete this on short notice and offered to complete it by the next day. This apparently upset the HR person who was abrasive and condescending on the phone. She grilled me with various generic questions for a few minutes before ending the call without bothering to ask about my experience related to the role. Received a rejection email a day or two later.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied in mid-October. Had an initial screen with HR about 2 weeks later. Invited for a in-person interview in early December.

    The 2 interviewers were 15 minutes late. The interview consisted of a technical skills test comprised of several case studies. They wanted to know what strategy I would use for different clients. Gave them the benefit of the doubt for being late and I left with an overall good impression of the interviewing managers. They seemed to know their stuff.

    2 weeks later I was invited back for a 2nd interview with a different manager who would have been my direct superior. He was also late for the interview and seemed unprepared and disinterested in the interview. His communication style was awkward and he simply read off a script. Had a hard time picturing myself working for him.

    Was told they were looking to move quickly and would have an answer by the end of that week (mid December). After hearing nothing I figured I didn't get the position. Finally in mid January I got an email from HR (the third HR rep that had communicated with me about the position) saying the hiring manager had decided to go with another candidate. But from how long the process was (3 months), how disorganized it was, and interviewers being late I think I dodged a bullet
