    Legal Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    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.

    Legal Researcher Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Washington, DC) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Recruited by TalentNet, the talent recruiting arm of Thomson Reuters, twice for this position. First time my profile was sent over and the hiring managers at Court Xpress decided to hire internally which didn't make sense since the position is a contract job. TalentNet contacted me again to interview for the role. This time, I interviewed with a senior-level recruiter over the phone and then via Skype, references were contacted and my profile was sent over. Two weeks later I was informed that they were more interested in candidates with non-legal backgrounds: not persons with actual legal research skills and customer service experience, to which I possess.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Washington, DC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a recruiter followed by a fairly lax in-person interview. Certainly differs with position as the skills required vary wildly depending on which business unit you work in.

    Interview

    I applied to the job during Christmas holidays so i didn't hear back 2 weeks later. Had a phone interview where i was asked my basic knowledge and skill set. Scheduled a in person interview a week later. Super laid back and chill, the hiring manager literally only asked to clarify some things on my resume. And spent the rest of the interview just describing the company and job. Got the offer 3 days later.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Application

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

    Interview

    Very pleasant, the people who work there are extremely friendly. It had a laid back atmosphere. The people who interviewed me were my age, which made it more comfortable. They asked very common interview questions(What was your strength/weakness, what qualities do you possess do you think can be translated to this position.) It lasted about 30 minutes. They told me they would get back to me in a week, but they called me 3 hours later and offered me the job.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Washington, DC) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online, the HR Rep contacted me asking when I could do an interview. They also noted that there is no relocation funds available. I did about 4 different phone interviews (Over the span of about a month) where they asked a lot of questions about past experiences, what I could bring to the TR team, and how I deal with clients. First was with the HR Rep, next was with the Hiring Manager, then the Hiring Manager again with her Boss, and finally I finished by interviewing with long time team member. Most of the questions were straight forward and fairly easy if you have your resume sitting in front of you (Tell me about a time where you had to deal with a difficult client, how did it go? Did you learn anything from it?). The HR Rep, Hiring Manager, and other staff members were extremely nice but the whole process took a very long time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Washington, DC) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Applied via a Craigslist posting, they contacted me a while later (I didn't even remember applying at that point), we scheduled an interview over the phone. I showed up in a suit, I spoke with the HR person first for ~5-10 minutes and then the supervisor I would be working under for ~10 minutes. They seemed to be trying to gauge my personality. They asked me about my resume.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions; just be able to talk about anything on your resume, because they use that as a starting point for conversations.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate.
