The Virtuous Cycle:

Today, organizational growth and success requires that you provide world-class experiences for both your customers and workers. Yet too often, legacy systems and processes along with the antiquated way traditional service partners work, makes transforming those experiences an overwhelming challenge — resulting in getting stuck and settling for the status quo. Appirio delivers a different experience. Our free-thinking consultants — many of whom are practitioners themselves — challenge conventional thinking to lead your organization in the creation of next-generation Worker and Customer Experience by first creating actionable strategies to deliver results quickly, and then helping you adapt to a new experience-driven era over time.

We believe Worker and Customer Experience are intrinsically linked and must be addressed together. By leveraging cloud technology, new ways of working like crowdsourcing, and using solution accelerators to rapidly build and integrate solutions, customers can create both amazing Worker and Customer Experiences that drive profitability and growth.

These volunteer opportunities are designed to build team while enabling employees to make a tangible difference in their local community.


  • Paid Volunteer Time Off: We believe in supporting and sustaining a culture of volunteerism throughout the company by providing eight hours of paid time off each year to jump start an employee’s pursuit of a personally meaningful volunteer activity on company time.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Appirio (Jaipur, Rajasthan) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process is very much easy as every round is an elimination round. First round was a test based on java or non java for those who did not know java, The test is of 70 marks 20 ques are of 1 marks each, 20 ques of guessing the output of the code given and 2 ques of 5 marks each for coding simple coding questions.
    Those who clear this round will move to the Technical Interview just brush up the basics of all the skills mentioned in the resume nothing will be asked outside your resume or your engineering subjects.
    Once you clear this round you will move to Cultural Round again in this you may be asked to write some code , or you must be evaluated about your personality , How much you know about the company. My advice would be to go through company's website before going for the drive and should know about company.
    After this round if you clear this you move to hiring manager round it is similar to the cultural round where some senior manager will take your interview.
    Last round is the HR round in which they asks you why this company, introduction they just check your confidence that is it.
    My advice would be just be confident and should revise the basics before going for the drive.
