    Practical Law Marketer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Completely disorganized, and then to top it off they had the guy who I was supposed to replace interview me (well more like berate and interrogate me) in front of the team without telling me he was going to interview me. Never experienced such unprofessionalism. Guy left the Job, guess he wanted it back...

    Business/Technology Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Ann Arbor, MI).

    Interview

    Very professional, yet laid back interview. I didn't feel pressured like I was under examination. Everyone was polite, I got a tour of the building, they asked me some questions (and for specific examples) of times when I solved problems and thought outside of the box.

    Sales Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview

    Applied online. Recruiter reached out to set up phone interview with Manager. Basic questions about resume and experience. Why you wanted role and why you would be a fit. After call was told would follow up about possibly moving forward, but no communication since conversation 2 months ago. At least have the courtesy to let applicants know when they aren't selected instead of just radio silence.

      Why did you leave last employer?
      What you know about Thomson Reuters?

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (San Francisco, CA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Incredibly disorganized and unnecessarily elongated...

    I applied to the company in the beginning of June, and heard back maybe a week after I applied. The recruiter set up a phone interview and asked basic behavioral questions. I didn't hear back for another two weeks, even though I emailed asking for an update. When I was finally scheduled for a panel interview, I went in and witnessed a lot of disorganization. The room for our interview wasn't booked, and we were hoping from place to place looking for a space. Furthermore, though it was supposed to be a panel interview, I only interviewed with one employee, and waited for the other employee to get our of her meeting. Eventually, she interviewed me, but talked more about herself than presenting me with any substantial questions; it came off as curt and disrespectful. I just felt a lot of disorganization from the company and was disappointed that a company with this much clout could have so many missing pieces behind closed doors.

    Legal Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Washington, DC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Phone call, second phone call (main interview), editing exercise. It seems that they do a brief screening, then call you again (or ask you to come in), and then you speak to several different people. Then they sent an editing exercise to do and send in, which was the last stage of the process I got to.

    Sales Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    When I started, I was applying for a fairly low level and worked my way up. So the process was fairly simple - your typical "tell me about a time" type questions

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time where you had to resolve a customer dispute.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I started off at a much lower position so there really wasn't room for negotiation. It was a take-it-or-leave-it kind of deal, but that's to be expected at entry level, so no hard feelings.

    Interview

    Three people interviewed me one at a time, the manager, a person on her team, and a co-op student. They were all very nice and gave me a run-down of what I would be doing if hired and their expectations of me.
