Organization : Thomson Reuters
Position : Senior Software Engineer
Thomson Reuters Interview Process
I applied at Thomson Reuters for the post of Senior Software Engineer through a recruiter. The process took more than two weeks and I was interviewed at Thomson Reuters. There were a total of three rounds in the hiring process at Thomson Reuters - 2 technical interviews and 1 HR interview.
Round 1 - First Technical Round
I was contacted by a mail that my interview was scheduled in the company. The first technical round was more an introductory round than the technical round. There were many questions asked about myself. There were questions regarding my previous job as well. After that, questions were asked from the technical area. The questions were based on data structures and java majorly and they were moderately difficult.
Q1. How will you update a value using threads? Write the code.
Q2. What sort of variables are required for snakes and ladder questions?
Q3. Write a java program to sort an array using Bubble Sort Algorithm.
Round 2 - Second Technical Round
This interview focused on the technical questions right from the beginning. But due to that, this round was much shorter than the previous one. This could be seen as a relief too. Many questions were asked based on core java, database structures and a bit of C++ too. There were some situation based questions too and that were more difficult.
Q1. How will you manage a multilingual testing of a product on an extremely short notice such that you don't have enough time to test them all?
Q2. Printing the nodes of a tree visible to a person standing on the right side of the tree.
Round 3 - HR Round
The HR round was a quick one and went all smooth. The interviewer read my resume and some questions were asked based on that. It was all sort of a formality as I did not face much cross questions. It was majorly me telling everything about my projects and stuff.
After this round, the offer was made which was negotiable.
How to crack Thomson Reuters Interview
If you are reading from above, you must have sought out one fact which is the level of difficulty. I will definitely agree that the interview was pretty difficult. The questions especially the situations based ones were quite difficult even for an experience person.
However, there is one thing and that is you won't feel a pressing pressure in the interviews. This is the best thing. It allows your brain to process much more and keeps your head clear.
You need a lot of preparation if you are thinking of cracking Thomson Reuters Interview. They want professional people that have a thorough knowledge in the areas they will be requiring you to work on. Thus you can't take it casually. Go through the concept and prepare like you did when you were a fresher.
My best wishes with all the candidates who will be appearing for the interview.
