Proper way to handle page load in JavaScript

Hi Guys!

I wonder if is there any beter way to run my JS script after page load.

I want to add  .click function on my web-item in issue menu (section="operations-work"). I used AJS.$(window).load() instead AJS.$(document).ready(), however is does not working.

The problem occurs on project issue view (when there is a list of issues on left side). 

I guest that the view of issue is included to page with some delay and my script just run before this. Is there any better way to handle load/ready event in this case? 

My scritp:

AJS.$(window).load(function($) {
      AJS.$("#test").click(function( event ) {
          event.preventDefault();
          alert("test");
     });
});
