We want you to feel good about working for us. So we don’t just offer employees an interesting job in an international technology corporation, but a lot of additional benefits as well. Our support extends to areas such as work-life balance, child care, health programs, and retirement plans. In most cases benefits are established at a local level, so they will differ depending on where you work. You can find out more about the specific programs and benefits that are offered in the position you are interested in by looking at the righthand column of the job description on the Continental job portal.
To help our employees strike a healthy balance between their jobs and other aspects of their lives, we offer flexible working conditions worldwide, such as mobile working, part-time and flexi-time, and sabbaticals. We also believe it’s possible to combine kids and a career. Whether it’s our company daycare center in Sibiu (Romania), parent-child offices in Frankfurt (Germany) or extended maternity leave in the United States, different local programs make it easier to reconcile the demands of work and family.
We put high priority on boosting the resilience, responsibility and autonomy of our employees. Our locations in Guadalajara (Mexico), Mt. Vernon (US) and Bangalore (India) have gyms for our employees to use, while Lindau (Germany) offers reduced-price massages in the workplace. And these are just a few examples. A wide variety of programs for sports and exercise, stress management, yoga, healthy backs, ergonomics, cancer screenings, vision tests, and vaccinations illustrate the many facets of preventive health care at Continental worldwide.
We offer employees discounts on company products – especially tires. In addition, in countries such as Brazil, the USA, Germany, Romania and Slovakia, our employees benefit from lower rates on insurance, private and company pension plans, and many additional discounts on external products and services. At your job interview, you’ll have a chance to ask about the specific perks offered at that location.
When it comes to compensating our employees, we believe in good pay for good performance. We are committed to the idea of sharing our success. So a remuneration system that rewards good performance plays a decisive part at Continental – and extends beyond the upper levels of management. This includes Continental’s annual profit-sharing program which, based on that year’s financial results, allows all our employees across the globe to benefit from our corporate success. Because through their dedication, every employee contributes to our company’s sustainable value creation.
