How Can JobTestPrep Help?

Supplying necessary information is not the sole help that JobTestPrep provides to applicants. We have also thoroughly researched on the tests that potential Operational Mangers are invited to take and designed their exact simulations. Our exclusive PrepPack™ specifically created for job candidates vying for the position of the Operations Manager includes the CCAT and interview materials along with the Management Aptitude Test. If you practice with our resources before you cross the threshold of your examination room, you will receive high scores and begin to oversee the quality of production and outputs in your company.

What Is the Operational Manager?

The Operational Manager supervises the provision of the company’s services or its production of goods. Think of the Operations Manager as somebody who ensures that the company runs well. Operational Managers also see to it that their organization provides efficient services that come up to the expectations and needs of customers and clients. 

The precise nature of Operational Managers’ responsibilities depends on the field in which their company works. The role of the Operational Manager is crucial to the company’s growth in many industries, ranging from hospitality to healthcare, retail, insurance, construction, and manufacturing. But regardless of their company’s specialization, Operational Managers usually oversee their company’s system of production and provision. They analyse whether the company functions effectively and create the means to improve its operation, if needed.

As a rule, Operational Managers liaise with their co-workers and representatives of other companies. They interact with managers responsible for different areas in the organization, showing them their findings and measuring the performance of their colleagues. They also often train new employees. Among the duties that the Operational Manager assumes are planning changes in the company, managing quality assurance programs, creating new technologies and methods of efficiency, establishing the company’s budget, and overseeing its inventory. The variety of the duties taken by Operational Managers shows how multifaceted is their profession. The versatility of their occupation usually enables them to transfer their skills and knowledge across different industries and departments.

What Education Should the Operational Manager Have?

Although each company determines what educational level they expect their Operational Managers to have, usually a graduate degree is required for this role. The degree may be in computer science, engineering, operations, or project management. In addition to having a graduate degree in these fields, working experience in the operational management is highly desirable and may be considered even more important than education by some employers.  

What Skills Should the Operational Manager Possess?

As the name of the profession suggests, Operational Managers should love operations and processes. They also need to enjoy interpersonal communication, because their job includes liaising with different types of people. Operational Managers should have a keen eye for detail; yet the bigger picture should not escape their attention either. Along with fulfilling daily tasks, they need to set large goals and know exactly how to reach them. Because the success of your organisation will depend on you, if you become its Manager of Operations, you need to have excellent organizational skills.

A working knowledge of business planning software is a must for the Manager of Operations. Without this knowledge, you will not be able to build charts, reports, and financial projections. You also need to know how to manage your time well. As a team leader, you will supervise, coach, motivate, and support your co-workers. Overseeing the quality of your company’s production, you will always strive for the best.   

What Is the Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT)?

The Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT) is a reliable measurement of applicants’ cognitive aptitude and skills necessary for performing their job effectively. Among other qualities, the test evaluates how well job candidates process and apply information, learn new skills, think critically, and solve problems. The measured cognitive abilities are divided on the CCAT into three categories:

  • math and logic
  • verbal skills
  • spatial reasoning

Questions posed on the test are not divided across these categories equally. Yet altogether, you will have 50 questions to answer on the CCAT. The entire test should be completed within 15 minutes. You will thus have no more than 30 seconds to spend on each question. Note that you will not be given a time extension on the test, if you do not complete it within a quarter of an hour. A short time limit on the CCAT is its biggest challenge. You can successfully respond to it only if you prepare for the test in advance. Studying with JobTestPrep’s sophisticated resources will allow you to get advantage over your competitors.

JobTestPrep makes it its business to assist job applicants with their job search. By preparing for your pre-employment assessment with the help of our test simulations and interview materials, you will gain a decided advantage over other candidates for the position of the Operational Manager.
