    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    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.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Leeds, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Leeds, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Good brief on job and a presentation attached on company. Interviewer was cool too.. It's all about YOU though. He was just prompting me for more information (like a BA) I guess.

    I thought it went well, and I ticked nearly every box. Unfortunately I was turned down due to internal recruitment. Kinda waste of time and could have done with formal feedback at the least.

    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen with external consultant, phone interview then in person interview with three people, two in the room and one on video.

    The large room had been used previously for a lunch meeting and there was food and dishes spread all over the table. Not very appealing.

    The telephone interview person was there, so asked relatively few questions. Lots of general questions, nothing too spectacular.

    The guy on video didn't like my answer to a question and it showed. When I tried to explain my answer in more detail, this didn't seem to go down well.

    I was told in advance that they would be looking to interview me for a second role and this followed as a video interview afterwards. so I had a total of 90 minutes worth of interview.

    Then every thing went very silent. Finally I heard negatively about the first role. I did eventually learn that they thought I would be too expensive for the second role and all my attempts to get them to put an offer to me failed.

    Altogether a very unsatisfactory process and a very professional company made a very bad impression on me. Their use of external consultants may make things easier for them, but in this case the fact that I couldn't communicate directly with TR personnel was a real negative. The consultant also stopped communicating was a real turn off after what had been a professional approach.

    Technology Graduate Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nottingham, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Nottingham, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Applied Online. Various Online stages such as Situational Strengths Test, Video Interview (Prerecorded). The strengths test also gave you a feedback form later which was quite nice.

    The next stage was an assessment centre, this had 4 stages; Show and Tell, Innovation Pitch (Presentation), Innovation Labs (Lego Challenge/Group Exercise) and a Strengths Based Interview with 2 members of staff.
    We were given documentation about a week before the assessment centre to prepare the Innovation Pitch and Show and Tell, but the rest was a surprise on the day.
    It was a pleasant day, and they paid for transport as well as providing lunch on the day.

    LondonProgram (Technology) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (London, England (UK)) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Process was pleasant enough. First you fill in your details, then do an online assessment (you get a candidate feedback report after that regardless of whether you're successful or not), after that a video interview.

    Unfortunately I didn't progress much further than the video interview (done on HireVue) and they sure took their time in getting back to us!

    Questions asked in the video interview were as

    1. How do you make sure you always deliver great results on the tasks you are personally responsible for?
    2. Explain how you would feel if you had to completely rearrange your day to accommodate an important piece of work.
    3. Is applying what you have learned important to you?
    4. How will working within a large global organisation play to your strengths?
    5. How would you support your team?
    6. Imagine that you have spotted a process that isn’t working effectively. What would you do?
    7. In your opinion, what is the secret when communicating with colleagues and stakeholders with differing levels of seniority?
    8. What strategic factors do you think will impact Thomson Reuters’ success over the next 12 months?
    9. Can you describe a recent project or assignment which required you to apply your technological knowledge?
    10. Imagine that your manager has asked you to lead a five-minute presentation on new Technology. They provide you with a long list of resources to use in preparation. How would you make sure you include only the key information?
    11. Why are you interested in our Technology Summer Internship Programme?
    12. What do you feel you could bring to the Technology Summer Internship that sets you apart from other candidates?
