OTIS Hiring Process

The OTIS hiring and recruitment process includes the following steps:

  • Application – OTIS utilizes the Brassring applicant tracking system (ATS) that screens and analyzes your application, resume, CV, and additional documents for keyword-specific phrases that align with the job description. Learn more about applicant tracking systems and how to beat them on our dedicated ATS page.
  • Interview – You will encounter a preliminary phone interview, and then later be invited to attend a “super day” which consists of several rounds of interviews with a variety of managers and supervisors.
  • Presentation – You will be asked to give a brief presentation (about any topic) in front of other candidates, managers, and supervisors. This is done to demonstrate your communication, teamwork, and professional skill set.

Elevator Industry Aptitude Test (EIAT)

In order to become a qualified elevator technician, you must have passed the Elevator Industry Aptitude Test (EIAT). Developed by the National Elevator Industry Education Program (NEIEP), primarily focuses on arithmetic computation, reading comprehension, and mechanical comprehension. The purpose of the test is to assess your aptitude for working in the elevator industry.

The Elevator Industry Aptitude Test (EIAT) does not give a penalty for incorrect answers. Therefore, if you’re unsure about an answer, it’s better to guess than leave it blank. Additionally, the EIAT is scored on a pass or fail basis, with 70% being the minimum for passing. Applicants that fail the EIAT will not be considered for an interview and must wait until the next recruitment period. Therefore, in order to ensure that you make it to the interview stage, prepare with JobTestPrep’s IUEC PrepPack™.
