    Legal Information Analyst Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Scheduled an online HireVue interview several days later. Got an email to schedule an in-person interview a few days later. Easy to schedule, and they allowed me to reschedule when I mixed up dates and was going to be out of state for another job interview. The interview process itself was pretty easy and simple. Typical questions and very low-stress - especially since I did zero prep. Learned about the job position and was interviewed by 2 people (~30 min). I got the impression that the job didn't offer much upward mobility nor did it seem particularly stimulating. But, everyone was nice and it seemed like a good opportunity for new grads. After the interview, I did 2 tasks as part of a research skills assessment (via Westlaw), and 1 task as a short writing exercise (all 3 tasks ~60 min). It wasn't particularly difficult, but the research involved looking up things in places I didn't have need to use during law school or my other law-related jobs so I didn't finish all of it in the time allotted. The interview took about 90 minutes. I did not get an offer, but no hard feeling since my goal is a local government job - and unlike the government hiring process, I appreciate that from application to rejection TR moved very quickly.

    Digital Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Eagan, MN

    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.

    Marketing Interview

    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.

    Marketing Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Richfield, MN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter and convinced that I would be a good fit for the company. I took the time to go to two interviews with 5 people during which I was told they "loved" my answers and was one of two candidates for the position but they "couldn't imagine" anyone being more qualified. I explicitly asked how long it would be to hear a response either way and was told one week. During that time, I was obviously expecting an offer and didn't even receive a call/email back. I also called the recruiter (no answer or call back -big surprise). I found it incredibly rude and inconsiderate for them to recruit someone who hadn't even applied for the position to take days off their current job to attend two interviews then not have the decency to even call back. Although everyone was very nice, they created an unrealistic expectation that I would be hired unlike any other employer I have interviewed at.

    Senior Director, Vendor Management Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    6 step interview process, with primary hiring VP, 4 diverse candidate interviews, and C level final interview. Very compliant with DNI principles as I would expect from TR. More important, the extended interview process gave me much greater insight into the overall direction and strategy of the CIO group, which helped solidify my decision to accept.

    Interview Questions

    • What was unexpected (but very welcoming) were questions relating to my interests outside of work. While this may be off-putting to some - for senior positions such as the one I applied (and accepted) it was very welcome.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, someone from the company reached out to me to visit their campus (no phone screening). The VP gave us a speech, then we did a round robin kind of thing just meeting with members from all of their different engineering teams who gave us a feel for the work they did. Then there was an interview with a manager of a team and a team member. They sort of just let me talk about all the projects I was working on, and then asked me a couple relatively basic questions as time was winding down. The whole thing was pretty relaxed. Then there was a tour of the massive building. I felt like the interview went incredibly well, they seemed very impressed with my experience, however no one has reached out to me in the 2 weeks since. I emailed the person who invited me to do the interview twice informing them I had offer deadlines elsewhere, but I never received a response. Seems a bit odd.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had a first-round interview on my college campus and a second-round interview at the Thomson Reuters campus in Eagan, MN. The first-round was very casual, some behavioral questions, but mostly talking about the job description and what I hoped to get out of an internship with Thomson Reuters. The second-round was a full day consisting of panel presentations by different groups, one interview in which they asked both behavioral and technical questions, and tours of the campus. Lunch was provided.
