Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters in July 2016.

Interview

Phone interview with HR Recruiter, then in person with team lead and manager. All interviews were exactly 30 minutes. First half of interview with each individual included a brief overview of the company, from each person's perspective. I was asked some questions and to review my qualifications, but pretty straight forward and no "test" type questions.

Interview Questions

  • Hiring manager asked, at the end, why should I hire you. I appreciated that over "tell me your strengths and weaknesses," which gets old.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in November 2014.

    Interview

    One-on-one process with Finance Mgr, as well as 2nd round with Director in the office. Questions centered around experience, what you've done in your last couple of roles, as well as where you see yourself in 5 years. A lot of Q&A.

    In the end, the managers had internal candidates in mind, so I felt like the interview was more or less a formal nicety than a real opportunity for advancement.

    Interview Questions

    • Core competencies, experiences, as well as your angle to problem-solving and working with large data sets.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process was very smooth with HR in scheduling time for interviews. I had three initial interviews with the hiring manager, another manager in the department, and the department vice president. I then had three additional follow-up interviews with two marketing managers and a senior vice president of the department.

    The delayed response for feedback/follow-up and an offer was a little frustrating. However, overall, I would rate the experience as very positive.

    Interview Questions

    • How will you be able to transition from an accounting background to finance and communicate with business partners.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The recruiter I worked with did a very good job recommending jobs for me. Initially I only applied for one, but ended up interviewing for 4 different ones. I had plenty of options and liked that they were working to help me. I did end up coming in here 4 different times- which was a hassle, but well worth it.

    Interview Questions

    • What is your 3 year plan? (I wasn't sure how to answer that...there is little someone can do at a new company in 3 years other than learn the business and build your network)   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They offered me my salary, I tried to negotiate and they said no- take it or leave it. Maybe they decide up front to offer as much as possible, but I was a bit taken back by the fact that they wouldn't negotiate. I always thought that was general practice.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews for 2 different roles and overall the experience was good. They were flexible with time, the 3rd interview was at 8am which worked perfectly for me. I am still waiting for an answer, and you know what? I will keep applying till I get a job there, I just think I fit with their culture. We went through my experience and few competency based questions.

    Interview

    Very good process overall. Clear communication mfrom the start regarding the interview process. I would like to check about how some processes ( eg business cases) work in practise in the company and what exactly you will be doing since that can be different from expected.
