    Edison Electric Institute

    Location: Washington, DC

    How to Apply: https://careers-eei.icims.com/jobs/1113/manager%2c-employment-testing/job

    About the EEI Employment Testing Department:

    The Employment Testing Department at EEI oversees the industry’s employment testing consortium, providing employment tests and related services to over 60 electric companies across the country. Created in the early 1980s, the consortium is a one-of-a-kind program that provides companies in the electric power industry with employment test batteries validated specifically for industry job families (e.g., power plant operations, power plant maintenance, lineworkers and other skilled trade jobs). In addition to validated test batteries, we provide our members with day-to-day consultation and technical support, as well as legal support in the event of a challenge. Our well-being depends on the industry’s satisfaction with our products and services, so customer service is a top priority.

    The department works on a variety of projects geared toward meeting the industry’s employment testing needs. Examples of current projects include evaluating the viability of unproctored ability testing for the industry; identifying ways to reduce group differences in test scores while maintaining validity; developing a process for extending the use of EEI test batteries to natural gas jobs; and implementing a recently developed customer service representative assessment for the industry.

    Since we serve an entire industry, the Employment Testing Department is a unique blend of traditional I/O roles. We sell and market our tests and services, but we work within a specific industry where our employment tests are the industry standard, so we don’t consider ourselves external consultants. At the same time, we provide advice and expertise to multiple companies so neither are we internal consultants. If you have a passion for employment testing, enjoy working in a small group with large reach and responsibility, and want the challenge of ensuring the success of a model consortium testing program for many years to come, this may be the role for you!
