Employment Testing

We administer aptitude and skills tests to job candidates for some positions. Edison Electric Institute (EEI), an association of investor-owned utilities across the United States, developed many of the tests. EEI Practice Tests (login required) are available to help learn about and prepare for these pre-employment tests.
