1) If your application is complete, including required attachments, and you meet the minimum qualifications, you will receive an email (generally within a couple of weeks) through the iCIMS system from the Local Area Coordinator scheduling you to take the Elevator Industry Aptitude Test (EIAT) which is a validated basic skills exam designed to measure your potential success in the Elevator Trade. Your abilities will be assessed in the areas of reading, mechanical comprehension, and arithmetic computation. Following the EIAT you will also take a Tool Assessment designed to assess your knowledge of basic tools and their use, as well as basic measuring skills. Please note that when you are scheduled for the exam the date and time cannot be changed and you must present a picture ID in order to sit for the exam. The EIAT is scored on a pass/fail basis, with 70% correct being the minimum passing grade. Applicants who fail the EIAT will NOT be interviewed and will be removed from the pool of applicants; however, they may re-apply during subsequent recruiting periods.
2) Applicants who pass the EIAT will receive an email through the iCIMS system from the Area Coordinator notifying them that they have passed the exam, and scheduling them with an interview with representatives from the Joint Apprenticeship Committee (JAC). Once again, interview times cannot be changed. A hiring committee consisting of at least one individual from both the Employer and the International Union of Elevator Constructors (IUEC) will conduct the interviews. All applicants will be asked the same set of questions, and interviewers will take notes during the interview.
3) Applicants will be scored based upon Education, Work Experience, Oral Interview, and Tool Assessment, and will be placed on a ranked list, with the highest scoring individual being placed at the top of the list. All applicants of the results, and applicants will be placed as apprentices based on their rank in this pool of eligible candidates. Applicants not selected for employment will remain on the ranked list for a period of two years.
