Eligibility is contingent on the participant’s continued employment at a Retail location enrolled in the RPM program. As used herein the term “Retail” means any location that sells to consumers and has the equipment in its retail establishment to balance and mount tires. If a participant ends their employment where their enrollment took place, the participant is automatically ineligible and will be removed from the program. If new employment is secured at a new Retail location that is already participating in the program, participants will need to re-enroll into the RPM program and notify Program Headquarters of this change.
Continental Tire the Americas, LLC (CTA) may send you important notices by email. You are responsible to maintain a current and valid email address on your online profile for this program.
