In this article, I am going to share my real experience of joining the Wipro WILP program as part of WASE student. Wipro WILP, WASE, or WISTA are essentially the same with extremely minor differences. I recently completed 10 years of working with Wipro on 16th November 2020. It would be good if I share my experience with Fellow students or members who wish to join these Work Integrated Learning Program.

Wipro WILP WASE WISTA Overview
Work integrated learning programs provide you with the opportunity to continue with your studies while you work and earn money. The name “Work Integrated Learning Program” itself describes what these programs will offer. So in this article, I will talk more about my experience of joining this program and then progressing in my career. If you prefer watching videos then here is the one.
Total Work Experience
I now have a total of 10 years of experience working with Wipro. I joined Wipro on the 16th of November 2010 and have recently completed 10 years working with Wipro.
I graduated with B.Sc(IT) degree in 2009. Everyone knows how bad the recession was during 2008-2009. The recession really skimmed the chances of job hunting in those years.
Work Experience Prior to Wipro WILP WASE WISTA
To continue making ends meet, I joined BPO (Convergys) and worked for almost eight to nine months there before joining Wipro WILP Program in November 2010.
Wipro WILP Eligibility Criteria
The eligibility to join the WILP program was to ensure that students have scored a minimum of 60 percent from the 10th standard until graduation. Mathematics subject was also one of the key requirements.
Wipro WILP Interview Format
As far as I remember, there were three rounds:
- Aptitude Test
- Technical Interview
- HR Round
Almost a complete day was spent in these three rounds as the number of participants who came for the interview was quite large in numbers. I believe there were around 100+ participants to be interviewed that day.
Wipro WILP WASE WISTA Offer Letter
Two weeks after the interview I received Offer Letter on my personal Email ID which was provided when I filled the interview forms. My advice is to ensure you fill Email ID correctly as this will be the medium of communication between the organization and participants.
Offer letter details about the program and the salary structure during the tenure of this program. The offer letter also contains the general hike which a candidate would get post completion of the program. I believe things might have changed a bit when I compare it with what it was ten years ago.
Wipro WILP WASE WISTA Service Agreement
I did have approximately four years of service agreement. We also had to provide some amount which gets refunded on the completion of the program. There might be changes on these as generally, organizations keep changing these things depending on various things.
Wipro WILP WASE WISTA – Joining Location
My joining was in Mysore GSMC which is one of the several training locations. There is generally very less choice on opting for the training locations. I was not given any choice and the offer letter clearly stated the joining location and the day of reporting to the joining location.
Wipro WILP WASE WISTA – Salary Structure
I can’t talk about the salary structure of the program as this might be a breach of the agreement. However, usually, there is a salary increase each year and the salary increase is also clearly stated in the offer letter. I had read the offer letter clearly before joining the program. If you are planning to join the WILP program, make sure you go through the offer letter properly before committing to it.
