UMA partners for pre-employment screening program

The United Motorcoach Association (UMA) and Scheig Associates partnered to provide discounted pre-employment performance testing to its members. UMA members will save 10% on Scheig Associates' Motor Coach Works Hiring & Performance System designed specifically for the motorcoach industry to identify, select and hire better, safer drivers.

Scheig Associates has more than two decades of experience and their job-specific tools, when implemented correctly, consistently identify an applicant's future performance at an 88% accuracy rate. Using methodology that is unique, predictive, legally defensible and proven over time, their Motor Coach Works Hiring & Performance System is a three-phase system consisting of an online pre-employment assessment, behaviorally based interview questions and a performance evaluation.

The premise of the program is to “hire for the behaviors and train for the skills.”

UMA partnered with Scheig upon hearing from several UMA members of their satisfaction and success with Scheig's hiring and employee performance solutions.
