I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at ThoughtWorks in January 2012.
Basically, if you do your homework properly, you can get through easily. They were mostly casual in the way they communicated and the interview was pretty organized and timed. The work culture at ThougthWorks is quite similar to Google's, at least in the Pune office. Most of the employees are quite young.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at ThoughtWorks in January 2012.
Interview Details – I was asked to submit an assignment and I sent back the assignment after 3 days. Later I was called for face to face interview and after couple of postponing from their end and it started with a pair programming.
- Pair programming
The interviewer sounded good and we started on some modification with the html. Shockingly his laptop had Visual Studio, eclipse, (he told about another IDE which I i don't remember now) and he was sorry to my as he did not have dreamweaver in his laptop. That's when It striked to me that i'm sitting inside a very dynamic environment which would require whatever the client ask for.
Note: If you are from a Product company then ThoughtWorks may not be the best choice.
- FtoF interview
Panel members of 2 interviewed me. The questions are below.
What is float? If some divs are floated and those parent is not floated how will you make the parent stretch upto its child. I have few answers and my answers then became part of the condition in the question. They pushed me to answer and gave my hands down.
Then the recruiter came back with the comment saying that they are expecting a resource who can handle both UI and UX which is not a laid down in the JD.
