It is BUT you only become eliigble after 150 days after you submit the application and a lot of times you get your interview in only 4-6 weeks after you apply. If the application is than forwarded to the Immigration Court instead of being approved then you will be able o apply for a work permit called EAD-Employment Authorization Document. The first time you apply its free.

It all depends on how quickly your case is processed. if your case is pending for 150 days and you have not requested any continuances/rescheduling AND your application has not been denied in that time, you may then apply for employment authorization.
