What Is the Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT)?

Vertafore uses the CCAT to make their initial selection of candidates from the applicant pool. The Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT) measures cognitive aptitude and various critical factors that contribute to performance at work. These factors include such abilities as critical thinking, problem solving, attention to details, learning and applying new information, among others. To evaluate applicants’ cognitive aptitude more accurately, the CCAT is broken into three parts: 

  • Math and logic
  • Verbal skills
  • Spatial reasoning

The major difficulty of the test is its short time limit; you are required to answer 50 questions within 15 minutes. On average, you have 30 seconds for each question. Note, your CCAT score is given in different formats. You receive either a raw score, counting your correct answers, or a percentile score, which estimates how well you have done on the test, relative to the performance of other candidates.  To track your progress on each section of the test, and thus better understand which of your cognitive abilities is stronger, you will also be given a mark for each individual part of the test.

Having a breakdown of your CCAT’s score is helpful when you practice with JobTestPrep’s materials. If you know the section you received the lowest mark on, you can devote more practice and attention to it, and eliminate your weaknesses. Improve your test results with JobTestPrep’s Vertafore PrepPack™ and open the door to further discussions of your candidacy for a job position at Vertafore.


Vertafore Personality Assessment

Together with the CCAT, you will also need to take also Vertafore personality test, which estimates your general aptitude for the position. It is also designed to predict whether you are compatible with the company and how you will interact with its employees in different working circumstances. Vertafore wants to ensure that all its teams work in unison towards shared goals, and therefore tries to evaluate the characters of prospective employees as thoroughly as possible. 

Although on your personality test you are expected to answer questions honestly and off the cuff, it is still useful to prepare for it in advance. Our practicing materials will teach you how to accentuate your merits and skills most emphatically. We will also show you how to avoid inculpating yourself accidentally, while answering tricky questions. Study for your personality assessment with JobTestPrep and demonstrate to your employers that you are the right person for the job.


Vertafore Interviews

If you succeed on your CCAT and personality tests, you will be invited for several interviews with Vertafore recruiters. The first interview is via Skype, during which you will be required to retake your Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test. You may also have an informal conversation with your interviewer about the company and its objectives. 

Once your CCAT results are verified, you will be called by a hiring manager by phone. The second interview usually takes about 30 minutes and is centered around your professional competency and previous working experience. If you apply for positions such as software developer, QA analyst, or engineer, you may also be asked technical questions. The last interview is with Vertafore representatives at one of the company’s locations. This interview is usually competency-based but might contain technical queries, too, if your position involves programming or technology. Several questions asked in real interviews at Vertafore are:

  • On what project have you worked most recently?
  • What would you do with an employee who did not follow policy?
  • Where do you see yourself in 5 years?  
  • Why would you want to work for Vertafore? How would you say you stand out from the other candidates?  
  • What creative idea did you champion to the end?
  • What programs are you comfortable with using?
  • What are your merits and weaknesses?
  • What is the difference between popular CI systems?  

Preparing your answers in advanced for the aforementioned and similar interview questions will help you sound confident and professional during the actual interview. It is also advised to visit Vertafore’s website and read about its mission and goals before you speak with its representatives.
