Orlando Utilities Commission hires only U.S. citizens and lawfully authorized alien workers. All selected applicants are required to complete Section 1 of federal Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification) and to provide identification and either proof of U.S. citizenship or proof of authorization to work in the U.S.

In addition, we use E-Verify as part of the I-9 process to verify the work eligibility of all new hires. E-Verify is an Internet-based system that compares information from an employee's Form I-9 to data from U.S Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records.

The official U.S. E-Verify Participation Posters informing OUC's current and prospective employees of their legal rights and protections are available below:

Additionally, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) web site provides answers to many questions about E-Verify asked by employers and employees. Please click here to review this information. If you have additional questions, please contact your human resources office.

Employment tests are an important tool used by Orlando Utilities Commission in the selection of qualified individuals for jobs. Some of the tests we administer were developed through the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), an association of electric companies created over 70 years ago to exchange information on industry developments and to act as an advocate for utilities on subjects of national interest. EEI acts as an information exchange for its over 200 member companies and a public relations voice for the electric energy industry as a whole.

The EEI provides the following link for your use to learn more about the tests, take practice tests, and improve your skills. http://www2.eei.org/eeitests/onlineproducts/Login.aspx. When the login screen appears, use "reliable1" for User Name and "ouc" for Password.
