      Why are online assessments used as part of the recruitment process?

      Online assessments are a reliable and valid way of understanding a candidate’s fit with Continental. The assessments are a good way of standardizing our selection process. Our online assessments are designed to predict future performance and success of candidates at Continental.

      What kind of online assessment does Continental use?

      Continental uses different online assessments. Depending on the job you are applying for, there may be one or two assessments to complete: a numerical and logical reasoning assessments and/or personality self-descriptions.

      Is there a time limit for answering the questions?

      Yes, there are time limits for answering the questions. You will be informed about those time limits before you start the assessments/modules.

      Can I take a short break between the online assessments?

      You can only take a break between assessments. Unfortunately it is not possible to take a break while an assessment is being completed.

      Why do I have to complete the assessments within three days?

      The online assessments are part of your application material. All candidates are asked to complete the online assessments within three days to ensure a fast and lean recruitment process.

      What if I need support due to a disability?

      What happens if the Internet connection is broken during the online assessments?

      It is necessary that you have an internet connection at the start of each test and after you completed the test, as the data is loaded at the beginning and will be transferred after completion. In between, editing is possible without a connection. If there is no internet connection for the data transfer, the specific instrument that was conducted will be blocked and the assessment data is lost. 

      In case the session will be suddenly stopped (e.g. due to loss of internet connection), the session will be blocked and unblocked immediately, up to 3 times. Afterwards the session won't be automatically unblocked and you need to reach out to the Recruiter / IT support (see next question).

      What if I experience technical problems?

      Please contact us via and our partner will be happy to help you with any inconveniences that arise. Please be aware that the communication with our technical support staff needs to be in English.
