At Duke Energy, our goal is to build a diverse, talented and highly capable workforce that will ensure the company’s long-term success, competitive advantage and world-class performance.
To find qualified individuals to help us achieve that goal, we use Edison Electric Institute (EEI) pre-employment tests, which are validated, fair and objective aptitude tests. Here’s how the testing process works:
- Apply for job with Duke Energy.
- Our recruiters will review each applicant’s information and select candidates to test.
- If selected, you will receive an e-mail inviting you to test.
- Take the EEI pre-employment test on the confirmed date.
- Afterward, you will receive an e-mail notifying you of your test results.
To help you prepare, we have provided practice tests for the CAST, POSS, MASS, TECH and SO/PD test batteries, along with answers and explanations for your review. Please note the practice tests are shorter and will differ slightly from the real tests. In addition to the practice tests, there are test-taking tips to help you prepare for the day of the test.
There is not a practice test for the Customer Service Representative (CSR) test or Meter Reader Aptitude Test (MRAB) test; however, you can access a description of the test by clicking on the brochures link below.
Non-EEI tests: Information for the Qwiz Administrative Test, Assistant Storekeeper Test and Basic Computer Literacy Test will be sent to invited test candidates prior to the test date. There are not practice tests or brochures for these tests.
Next steps for qualified candidates
A recruiter and/or hiring manager will review candidates who are successful on the employment test, and then contact candidates selected to move forward in the hiring process.
If you are not selected to advance, your test results will remain valid until the position requirements change.
If you do not meet the test requirements for a position, you must repeat the testing process described above when applying for any new position that requires a pre-employment test. You must apply to a position that requires testing in order to be invited to retake the test. Candidates may retest every 90 days.
