    Lead Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hong Kong (Hong Kong)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Reuters Hong Kong is hiring a project based web application design lead with C++ skills - firm's office is nice, located at Tai Koo Cityplaza 3, occupying three full floors with tightly packed seats, and the development group in Hong Kong has roughly 200 heads, the interview manager told.

    The overall image of the hiring is negative - regarding the hiring process. Vacancy posted via staff agencies, the development manager couldn't come up even with both a written job description and a vacancy title even after I was interviewed. Form filling is still required amid my resume is preliminary reviewed by line manager.

    A 10 minutes 1:1 interview with a development manager which consists of mostly basic technical questions:

    1) Which SQL Server you started using?
    2) Do you have experiences on creating database applications from scratch?
    3) Do you have experiences on database performance tuning? How do you tune database performance?
    4) Do you have experiences and how do you do unit test, stress test?
    5) Do you know C++?

    The line manager doesn't seem to be interested in answers to technical questions.
    No further questions were raised based on answers.
    No indication of how interviewer feels regarding the answers.
    No discussion on proposed expected salary.

    He then spent less than 2 minutes explaining the role, projects and position info as follows:
    1 Year contract, project based position (renewable depends on budget - ie. whether there are still projects), leading a team of 4-5 developers.
    1) Realtime Market Data Services for Internal Editoral Group
    2) Infrastructure Management Web - alert system that aggregate and compile failures reports in production servers

    The manager simply wasn't keen on the hire. Insider reports that the manager believes projects are over by the time hiring can be done.

    My real question that weren't asked to Reuters was:
    If you have a team of 5 developers worked on the project for 2 to 3 years - Why are you hiring an external design lead??? I feel those projects smell bad...

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was reached out by a recruiter on Linkedin. He called me and told me to complete the application online. I received a face to face interview invitation a couple days later. The interview was okay. The interviewer asked a lot of questions regarding my backgrounds and asked me what would I do if the clients are not satisfied with the service. But the interviewer didn't ask why I want to work in Thomson Reuters etc.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    I applied as an overseas candidate, and was arranged to a telephone screening. The interview I had was outsourced to a UK based company, and not directly with Thomson Reuters. The interview was nice but seemed rushed, I was told that there were many international applicants.
    I thought I did well on the telephone screening, but have yet to hear back from Reuters. Their process seems very long, and it's been well over three months since my application online.

    Interview Questions

    • nothing out of the blue. quite predictable.
      walking through CV, describing the company.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Hong Kong (Hong Kong)) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Standard application process followed by a phone call to arrange an interview time. My interview was in the communal kitchen (while it was quiet), and was very much casually-focussed, they were not aiming for an intense showdown.
