Interview
Round 1 : short coding round , 5 questions 45 minutes , questions like to replace a placeholder with
string, count the frequency of all letters in a string, remove elements form string 1 in string 2 , etc easy
but you need speed.They were checking for all possible corner cases.
Round 2 : long coding round , you have to design and implement a code using OOPS problems like
sales tax problem. time is 1.5 hrs , more focus on code readability , code extensibility and elegance of
the code.tip: use good naming for everything.
Round 3 : Technical interview , it can be on anything that you were suppose to study in your engg but
the max focus on DS , trees, queues , stack , LL ,etc. Also they asked me some puzzles like 100 floor
and 2 eggs ,etc.
Round 3 : called the technical round but for me it was all about how you approach a problem , in my
case we were discussing if i were google what parameters i would choose to rank pages.
Round 4 & 5 : leadership and social and economic justice round , it was about your opinion on social
issues like homosexuality , reservation ,etc
Round 6 : flow chart round ( google it )
Round 7 : small aptitude round 12mins and 50 questions , do as many as you can they are easy , dont
worry , nothing to prepare for it.
In my college in round 1 40-50 were shortlisted , 18 after round 2 , and finally 6 after technicals and all
those who cleared both the technicals were hired.

One question was count number of character occurence


, another one removing cha racters from second string in first string. Third finding a number is prime or not and such type of que stions

Interview Questions

Design a minesweeper game of N*N grid


Some randomly-selected squares, unknown to the player, are designated to contain mines. On
each turn, the player
has to select a square (x,y) by indicating if it contains a mine(flagging) or if it is safe, thereby
opening it.
If the square containing a mine is revealed, the player loses the game. If it does not contain a
mine, a digit
is instead displayed in the square, indicating how many adjacent squares contain mines;if no
mines are adjacent,
the square displays '0'. Two squares are adjaecnt to each other only if they share at least one
side.
Sample input:
Enter the minefield layout: xxm, xmx, xxx
(This represents a 3*3 minefield with mines located in 1,3 and 2,2 locations. The program
should then display
the grid as shown below with all squares concealed.)
xxx
xxx
xxx
Enter option:o(0,0)
(open location (0,0). The program should then display)
0xx
xxx
xxx
Enter option:o(0,1)
(open location (0,1). The program should then display)
02x
xxx
xxx
Enter option:f(0,2)
(open location (0,2). The program should then display)

02f
xxx
xxx
Enter option:o(1,1)
(open location (1,1). The program should then display)
02f
xmx
xxx
Oops! You stepped on a mine! Game over!
If the player opens all the locations that do not have mines, the player wins the game. In such a
case, the output
will be shown as below
02f
1f2
010
Wow! You cleared the minefield! Game over!
Note that the player has to open all locations that do not contain a mine. If some squares are
flagged but do not
contain a mine, he still has to continue and open the squares that don't have mines. If he
requires, he can open
a location that has already been flagged.
Extension: Allow a player to "clear around" a revealed square once the correct number of mines
have been flagged
around it.If the player does this before identifying all mines around the square the user could
lose the game if
an adjacent square contains a mine.

First round was on code pairing. They have given one design problem and given enough time to comes
up with feasible design.
After that two more tech rounds will be there and then 2 cultural rounds.
Tech 1 discussion will cover, dive deep in OOPs, Problem solving using OOPs, Data Modeling, check for
attitude to learn, scale, how receptive you are to feedback.
Tech 2 would cover your entire projects, the idea is not just to know the breadth of your projects but
depth, how a certain technology was used and more importantly WHY. Learnability, Scalability etc etc
where do you go to learn, are you self a learner.

Ok Thoughtworks interview is not like that as you find it on Internet or on google search, I have the same
expectation when I went there but it was just common interview process.
Starting with coding question : They gave very simple problem to solve (minimum coin to get given
amout) I solved same in two method.
Second : Pair review, just give the possible test case of the given problem. I've written 20+ test cases,
nothing interesting (I knew I cleared the interview)
Third Round : This round was taken by two girls of mid exp. 4-5 years. Ask me to give the test scenario
of web page of seat booking like (Bookmyshow) Same problem I discussed with them for 90 minutes.
HR Told me to get back to me on Monday. I got a call on Monday than I schedule the interview for
Friday.
She has sent me link for social injustice and leadership round.

Ok Fourth Round (they called it leadership round I don't know why ?) : One HR and One technical
panelist, they just ask about my previous project and exp. what do I like to do, and what not.
HR told me that this round was positive
Than they took two more written test
Fifth Round : Aptitude test this round will eat your brain so prepare for the same from google search.
Sixth round : You have to solve 50 question in 12 minute. it was speed and accuracy test
Seventh Round : I wait for 2 hours, interview start with some mangers, they just wanted to ask about
social injustice on women what is your thinking and all.
Some thoughts on Beef ban,

The interview process is quite lengthy and took several weeks (close to 2 months) to reach the final
round of interview.

Over all, I had 7 rounds of interview and below are some details at each round (all rounds were
conducted on a different day):
Round 1: Telephonic round. This round was majorly focused on the Business Analyst basis and how you
have performed your role as a Business Analyst in agile world. In addition, there were lot of question
on agile and scrum practices. This discussion lasted little over 1 hr.
Round 2: In-Person. This is one of the lengthiest round (close to 3 hrs). There were 2 people in the
panel, after introductions they started asking similar questions that were asked in round 1. In addition,
they have given various scenarios and how I would solve them. Later they started drilling into my dayday activities in my current organisation and went into every aspect of what I have told. Then, questions
were around agile/scrum - in detail and responsibility of each team members at various levels. After this
Q&A discussion, they wanted to do a role play where I was asked to perform as a Business Consultant
and they took up to be clients. I was given a scenario and then role play how it happens in real time that
includes understanding current situation of the business, future plans to enhance business and revenue,
get high level requirements, propose solutions, provide time lines getting sign off, budget plans etc.
Round 3: In-Person. This round was quite interesting and haven't seen before. This I cannot say as an
interview but it was more of a discussion on how we see society and our take on various social causes
and current happenings in society/world. This segment of the company impressed me a lot as its very
close to my interest.
Round 4: Analytical ability - not sure why they have this even for experienced people. It was pretty
difficult though.
Round 5: Very much similar to Round 2 but they did not ask many question on general stuff. Majority of
the time went on the role play aspect.
Round 6: Management round. Very friendly and inspiring discussion.

Now, every Ex-ThoughtWorks friend of mine warned me to not go the company for discussions. But I
really needed to find out why they were all asking me not to go.
The first round of discussion was with two people. One of them seemed very unhappy in general. The
other seemed to be focused on proving a single point that he had many opinions on technology.
I was there hoping to talk about some of the big data work that ThoughtWorks had proudly displayed on
their website.
I was immediately told by them that Big Data is all useless and that there are more solutions available
than problems to solve. I was also told that Thought Works was never planning to become a Big Data
house. So I tried to ask why they mentioned it on the website but all I got in response is - we're
digressing, and that we needed to get back to the interview. (What interview?)
We began discussing a programing language. In two minutes, that discussion turned into a one-sided
rage against the language and how the frameworks that people-successfully-use-worldwide-acrossmillions-of-applications was the biggest crime of the 21st century. It was quickly evident that neither of
them had much depth in the said frameworks, they happened to mention a few terribly incorrect details.
However, they had an opinion of the frameworks evil monstrosity.
The next set of gentlemen were no different. In fact, it felt like they were in a hurry to get back to what
they were doing. Neither of them wanted to hear anything related to my past experience. Again, both of
them lacked depth about frameworks (again some horribly incorrect details were mentioned) and voila,
up came the framework bashing. It was amusing to see such hard opinions created over nothing
concrete.
At the end, I learnt what my Ex-ThoughtWorks friends were trying to explain and why they had left. They
had warned me that the current culture revolved about how having an opinion was more important that
having knowledge. The interview experience was nothing but disappointing. Technology is but a means
to solve problems that customers face, they all come with good and bad. There is no place for egotistic

attacks during an interview, it's highly immature. I was merely giving ThoughtWorks a chance. I ideally
wanted to cut the discussion halfway and leave. However, I was courteous enough to respect their time
though they didn't seem to respect mine.
Companies need to start keeping a check on the attitude and arrogance of their employees, especially
during interviews. The panel is the face of the companys culture and attitude. The interviewers and the
processes are also being judged by candidates to decide if they are going to like working in the
company. Only the desperate could put up with bad attitude. Companies should ensure to keep out
arrogance as they expand.Show Less

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at ThoughtWorks
(Hyderbd) in July 2016.
Interview
It was tough. There was 1 coding, 2 technical, 1 managerial and 1 P3 round( in which you have to
discuss about the 3rd pillar of thoughworks- Socio economic justice). Questions were not easy- ranged
from medium to tough. In the second technical round, they asked extremely project specific questions,
which you can answer only if you have worked on that particular technology in an actual project.
