Wipro Application Process
Technical / Functional Interview
The Wipro career process is a multi-stage, competitive process. To progress, you’ll need to perform strongly at each stage, as the applicant pool is streamlined at each hurdle in the process.
The hiring process involves an online application, online psychometric tests, and a minimum of two interviews.
Wipro online application
The first step in the recruitment process is to complete an online application via the Wipro Careers website. You’ll need to log in to the career portal and create a profile.
The application will ask you to provide details of your educational background, work experience, and any other relevant information. You may also be required to answer a few questions based around your motivation for the role, and for working for Wipro. Questions will vary depending on the vacancy and career level.
Applications can be logged for specific roles, or a general expression of interest can be submitted so that your details are logged on the system for when a suitable role arises. Note, however, that applications for specific vacancies will be given first consideration.
Wipro aptitude tests
If your application passes the screening stage, you’ll be invited to sit for an online assessment. The tests set as part of this assessment differ depending upon the particulars of the vacancy and its career level, but most assessments assess key cognitive skills through three main areas:
Wipro verbal reasoning
The verbal reasoning section assesses a candidate’s ability to rapidly understand and analyze written information. You’ll be presented with passages of text and asked a series of questions related to its content. These will be multiple-choice and involve:
Vocabulary – Vocab questions will cover contextual vocabulary, synonyms, and antonyms.
Grammar – Grammar questions will involve looking at sentence construction, tenses, articles, subject-verb agreement, propositions, conjunctions, use of speech, and identifying grammatical errors.
Reading Comprehension – Reading comprehension questions will require candidates to analyze text, summarize, make inferences, deconstruct arguments, and place statements in order.
You will need to answer 22 questions in 18 minutes.
Wipro logical reasoning
The logical reasoning section of the test contains deductive, inductive, and abstract reasoning questions. These will cover topics such as inferred meaning, number and word sequences, analogies, classification, relationality, and data sufficiency to test your logical ability.
There will be 16 questions to answer in 16 minutes.
Wipro quantitative aptitude
The quantitative aptitude test involves:
Basic mathematics – These questions require your knowledge of factors, division, averages, ratios and proportions, decimal fractions and powers, algebra, surds, and indices.
Applied mathematics – These questions involve calculations on profit and loss, simple and compound interest, time, speed and distance, inverse and direct proportionality, and time and productivity. They may also involve shapes as well as numbers.
Engineering mathematics – The engineering math questions involve geometry (and coordinate geometry), probability, logarithms, permutation and combinations, and technical diagrams involving force and volume (depicting levers, pulleys, pipes, and cisterns).
There will be a total of 18 questions (across these three areas) to answer in 20 minutes.
Depending upon your business area, you may also be presented with an additional technical section (involving a coding test) or an essay writing task.
The coding test may involve basic online programming, data structures, and object-oriented programming (OOP).
Each section of the overall assessment is timed individually, so you’ll need to work through the questions at a steady pace. If you fail to complete a section within the given time limit, you’ll automatically be moved on to the next thematic set of questions.
The assessment is not negatively marked, so if you are stuck on an answer, it is worth giving it your best guess.
