    Director Global Payroll Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process was long and unorganized. I had 4 phone interviews and then had 4 in person interviews. A total waste of time. I was an out of state candidate so they flew me out to the PA office. The interview with the 4 executive was made to seem promising. After about 5 hours of interviewing the really made it seem like the position was mines. I was told that a decision would be made quickly... Three weeks later I was told that they offered a LOCAL candidate the position. The recruiters are unprofessional and there is a lot of confusion.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2016.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Philadelphia, PA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very smooth, but had different parts. I was first led to the local manager's place to go through my resume, and then she let me go into a virtual conference room to talk to the main manager who was located abroad. But luckily all communications were smooth.

    Interview

    5 interviews over 2 months only to find out I did not get the job the day after I was supposed to hear back....by seeing the position listed on Indeed again. What a waste of time and energy. Thanks for jerking me around. I expected more.

    Solution Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Philadelphia, PA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Phone screened by the recruiter, followed by two phone interviews with a manager and director leading to an in-person presentation interview with various members of the management team.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected aspect of this interview was that the hiring team didn't fundamentally understand the position in which they were hiring for. Therefore, they didn't understand certain aspects about what was being explained. Very disconcerting...this product will
      ultimately fail.  
      Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    This unfinished product will ultimately fail against strong competition in the marketplace.

    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    I interviewed for a recruiting coordinator position in their Philadelphia office. I had a phone screening first followed by an in-person interview. The phone screening was the typical questions, employment history, why are you interested in the position, etc. At the end of the phone screening, she stated that I would be contacted to schedule a in-person interview. Later that day, I received a personalized email from my interviewer attempting to schedule the in-person interview and I responded confirming my availability for the date requested. A few hours later, I received a generic email stating that I was not selected for an in-person interview. Obviously confused, I emailed my interviewer and asked if the generic email was sent in error since she had already scheduled my in-person interview. She never responded. I thought that was very unprofessional considering I was beyond qualified for the position and a simple "yes" you are still invited to the in-person interview or "no" you are not would have been sufficient.

    Director Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 10+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The Thomson Reuters interview is the most exhaustive, thorough, long, drawn out process that I've ever experienced. I applied for the job in late August 2010 and was finally made an offer in June of 2011. In addition to scheduling issues with management who were involved in the decision making process, there were "repeat" interviews with a couple of individuals. All in all, the process required many more interviews than at comparable companies and this was very frustrating and stressful.
