    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at ThoughtWorks (Chicago, IL (US)) in January 2021.

    5. Non-Technical
    6. Technical

    HR Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ThoughtWorks (Dallas, TX (US)) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Applied online and was emailed a personality test/cognitive test. Once I passed those I had an interview with a recruiter who unfortunately had English as a second language with a very heavy accent. I'm not sure if she had trouble understanding my responses but the interview went well in my opinion, though she could not pronounce my name properly.

    After a few days I received a response saying that they are not moving me forward due to lack of experience. That is funny because the role I interviewed for called for 7+ years of experience and I have over 20, and come from a more senior level role with greater responsibilities than what this role required.

    Software Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at ThoughtWorks (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I would say don’t bother wasting your time doing their ridiculous coding challenges or interviewing for the positions. After I passed the coding challenge, I had a “talk” with a recruiter and was told my code was of quality and was then asked standard interview questions. I then got a cold rejection email from an automated email not a personal message from the recruiter. The rejection message was 3 sentences long with no explanation as for the reason of rejection. Most people seem to be rejected so please don’t bother spending time and energy on their long coding challenges and interviews.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ThoughtWorks (Chicago, IL (US)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online and after about a month,received an email to submit a coding challenge. They offered two problems and I had to choose one. I was given about ten days to complete the assignment. After a few days, I received an email for a phone interview to discuss the job, my coding challenge and a little about my resume. After that, the next step is an onsite interview at one of their offices if everything goes well during the phone interview and the feedback on the coding challenge was positive.

    Principal Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ThoughtWorks.

    Interview

    They dedicate an entire section of the interview to empowering women, which is great. Only problem is they automatically start from a place of assuming you are a villain if you are a white male before you even get to speak. One of the interviewers had a major attitude and was completely rude. It was like a white male attack session. I brought it up later to others in the interview process but they acted like it just didn't happen. So turned off by this company.
