ThoughtWorks Interview questions
Get placed. Get respect...
ThoughtWorks does not come under the category of the software giants that can accommodate almost everybody who walk in. The company was started in 1993 to nurture and encourage talented and committed people with creative minds and the thirst to use technology to make an amazing change.
I got to know about this company recently and was very much impressed by its visions and policies.
- Things that impressed me:-
- The environment is extremely independent, as that's the best way to grow creativity.
- They don't care about what kind of dress you are wearing to office. All they want is your commitment. Your work.
- You will be working in the company of brilliant minds.
- Thoughtworks doesn't believe in cubicle space. Both the MD and the freshers work in the same table.
The Challeging Round 1
ThoughtWorks calls in students from all streams for its selection process. So the first round is generic, solvable by student of any major. There would be 10 question. If only only if you get all questions right, you are eligible for the next round.
The 10 questions need no prior preparation. All you need is a fresh mind and good concentration. All these years, the questions have followed the same pattern as follows:-
TYPE I : What is the content of the 3rd box at the end ?
Hit the Right Approach
This kind of question carries most of the mark. All you need to solve this question is kindergarten addition,subtraction,multiplication and division. But concentration comes as yet another essential skill. Giving you 1 hour to solve 10 questions mean that you got to walk your way steadily whether or not slowly. These are "Flowchart" kind questions, which will involve loops. So even if you lose track of the computation at the penultimate loop, you have to retrace the problem from the beginning. So better train your mind to solve these kind of questions.
